a) One car to finish in the Top 5, also winning the '675' Class!
b) The other car to lead the race at some point and also record the Fastest Lap Overall! This car will retire in the early Sunday hours (probably due to one of the crew grinning too much, and he therefore had to get rushed into the Le Mans Medical Centre!).
c) The Knighthawk entry will finish 2nd in '675' Class!
What's yours? No sitting on fences guys (to quote Jim!).
The trouble with Le Mans if its dry and if the pace car is not used - the stresses on the cars could be sky high. As they haven't had the testing of the Audis or Bentleys, the pressure's on. :yakyakyak
My hope is: LMP675 1st and 2nd. 3rd overall. Also as extreme mentions, an EX675 will lead the race at some time.
But we could be hurt, by the fact that our expectations are so high following all the hype. Remember, we saw Blundell at Silverstone where only ONE lap was completed.
Obvious statement but "24 hours is a long time".
Just hope to have a few:beerchug at some time with Kev, Jim and NuttyNursesHusband.
I can't see why MG can't pull off a good result. I firmly feel that the strongest oposition will come from Audi and Bentley. That makes a total of 5 cars, i.e 4 x Audi's and 1 x Bentley.
The Domes are very fast and so is the Ascari, but all to often the Judd mechanicals have let them down. Look how fast the Olive Garden Lola was acouple of years ago, went like the clappers but the Judd kept going "pop".
I don't think the Oreca "Playstation" Dallara's will feature, perhaps pick up places 4th to 6th, but that's about it. The Caddy's won't set the world alight either although they do tend to ignite quite frequently aka 2000.
So, I think the MG-Lola is a good candidate for a podium. I'm sure it will make up places with fuel efficiency over the Audi's. The team is strong, Chamberlain have been going to Le Mans since the mid 80's and have a lot of experience. They can do it. Look at the drivers alone, what a wealth of experience. Trouble is: which car will be the HARE?
