car, actually the very first Tuscan R / T400R built, has now passed
from Dennis Leech’s RSS outfit into the technical care of
Chad Racing, Iain Dockerill and Nigel Greensall amongst the principal
on hand at Silverstone today, Sunday (January 22) and confirmed
that the car is to be entered in the full season of Le Mans Series
races and that an entry has been posted for the Le Mans 24 Hours,
where the car just missed out, by a couple of laps, on a classified
finish in 2005.
There's a good
degree of continuity here with the 2005 Le Mans effort, because

car again, one of Hartshorne's 2005 partners should be involved
again, and the car would probably run in familiar colours: only
the technical back-up would be different.
will not be on the Le Mans Series driving squad (likely to be Hartshorne
/ Dockerill / TBA), but will be charged with development and testing
duties before the start of the season.
Here are Hartshorne
and Greensall, at the NEC a week or so ago - just about to discuss
the season's plans.
