Two Lamborghinis at Le Mans?
The Japanese Lamborghini Owners Club plans to submit an entry for
the 2006 Le Mans 24 Hours, for two Murcielagos. In technical cooperation
with Reiter Engineering, one Murcielago GT-R will be a car from
the Japan Le Mans Challenge, while the other will see Le Mans Series
action in Europe this year.
Under the name
of B-Racing, long-time Ferrari Challenge racer Norbert Walchhofer
and the German RSLine team are moving up into LMS competition with
a Murcielago – and the FIA GT Championship too (as reported
here before Christmas);
Walchhofer will most likely share driving duties with Philipp Peter.
For Le Mans, the B-Racing car will form the second
JLOC entry, if the ACO decides to extend an invitation. The official
presentation of B-Racing’s 2006 schedule will take place in
Competition for GT1 entries at Le Mans this year
looks like being particularly intense.
