2004 Le Mans 24 Hours Entry List (Final Revision?)
Two TVRs
dailysportscar.comAs confirmed by Care Racing today, April 21 - the #67 Care Racing Ferrari 550 has been withdrawn, so the second TVR slips into the final group of 50.

Care Racing Development’s Commercial and Business Development Director, Dominique Falque, explains: “We have been in negotiation with a number of very strong companies in recent months but unfortunately, as I am sure many people know, it is very difficult to find sponsors in the current economic climate and we were not able to finalise anything in time for Le Mans."

"I couldn't negotiate with drivers when we were fifth, fourth, third, second or even first reserve," remarked Chamberlain-Synergy's Bob Berridge (right) yesterday. Now he can.

Less than 24 hours later...

"We've still got two seats available," confirms Berridge, "for suitably qualified candidates. But this is wonderful news for us, to compete with two TVRs in the greatest race in the world. We're off to Turweston airfield now, to shake both cars down."

This news also evens up the balance a little in GTS: three 550s versus two Corvettes, two 575s and the Pagani - and also adds more interest and variety to the GT class, now ten 911s, two TVRs, two Ferraris and the Morgan.

A quick summary of the changes:
1. Arena withdraws - Taurus Lola / Judd in
2. BMS Scuderia Italia withdraws - Thierry Perrier / Khan Porsche in
3. Risi Competizione withdraws - XL Ferrari in
4. Konrad Saleen and WR added as reserves
5. XL Ferrari withdraws - Racing for Holland in
6. Care Racing Ferrari 550 withdraws - TVR in.
