Petit Le Mans. The season wrap up.
It’s almost time. Last race of the season is here, unfortunately.
(Is it me or this whole season flew away!? Sheeez!)
This race will stay in our memories for a very long time. Two major events: Ford GT’s final chapter and legendary C7.R Corvette last ride. When it comes to Ford GT, it is really sad to see those blue ovals go. Such a beautiful piece of machinery, it will turn into an iconic car, I am sure of that. Alike the 1966 Ford GT40, a consecutive four-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1966–1969), the second generation of this mid-engine two-seater sportscar will be remembered forever.
On the other hand, the C7.R will race for the last time this weekend. However, there’s a hot replacement for it: the new mid-engine C8.R, which will make its debut at the 24 hours of Daytona next year.
Now, into who’s going to be crowned this weekend? For starters, there will obviously be a hunt in all four classes – some will add a victory to their already filled resume, others are potentially racing this weekend towards their first championship title. We’ll see!
Qualification took place yesterday and already made us more than excited about today’s long race! Let’s look at the pole sittters:
DPi – #31 Whelen Engineering Racing Cadillac – Felipe Nasr I Eric Curran I Pipo Derani
LMP2 – #38 Performance Tech Motorsports ORECA – Kyle Masson I Andrew Evans I Cameron Cassels
GTLM – #62 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE – James Calado I Alessandro Pier Guidi I Daniel Serra
