Only 10 weeks to the 2011 Le Mans 24 hour race . It will be another Peugeot diesel versus Audi diesel battle for the podium with plenty of interest in the new GTE categories . Aston Martin will be hoping that the diesels stumble and they can at least get a podium finish or even an outright win but the Peugeot and Audi teams are formidable operations at the top of their game. For the entry list see http://www.lemans.org/en/races/24h/update.html.

Le Mans 24 hours is a must for every motor sport fan.It is a great spectacle .The track is superb and has real history.It is in France The cars generally look like cars not cruise missiles with wheels .Winning is a team effort so the drivers do not behave like prima donnas .And Bernie Ecclestone has nothing to do with it .I'll see you there.
