Dunlop Tyre Testing At Le Mans Today
It’s not just Lister Storm Racing with their LMP testing on
the Bugatti Circuit at Le Mans today and tomorrow – Racing
for Holland is present too, as is Yves Courage with his C65 675
class car, and Wieth Racing is expected to arrive soon, with its
improving Ferrari 550.
Both Racing for Holland
and Courage Competition will be using the track time to prepare
for the Spa 1000 Km next week.
The Team Goh Audi has
already tested at Spa, and with Tom Kristensen joining Seiji Ara,
this is obviously a very serious entry indeed for the 1000 Km.
explains the RfH view of the Audi racing at Spa (at www.janlammers.com):
“That the Audi is participating is good for the starting grid
- especially given the quality of the drivers - however, one cannot
help but wonder whether it is a good thing that someone can pick
one race and appear at the start with materials that others are
unable to use. All these things illustrate the need for a tightly
organized and strictly regulated championship and it is the reason
that all involved in sportscar racing should be happy about the
2004 Le Mans championship organized by the ACO. These concerns do
not diminish the fact that we are looking forward to the race at
Spa. We are going to do our best and are focused on winning the
that others cannot use are Michelin tyres and the Audi R8. The underlying
principle of the ISRS / SRWC / FIA SCC was that chassis were available
at less than a fixed price, and that tyres were available to several
teams, not just one.
