According to the latest news I've been able to find, there will be a total of 4 Prodrive 550 Maranellos racing in GTS this year at LeMans......I wonder if the two Barron Connor Ferrari 575 GTC's will edge out any of the Prodrive built cars. If any of you want to see these cars run in anger here stateside, try to get out to Road Atlanta for the Petit LeMans this year. I promise you, if you have not seen and heard and smelled these Ferraris running full pop from about 20 feet ( in some places at Road Atlanta) you DO NOT KNOW what you are missing....Absolutely Brilliant.....

I guess Kox is getting ready for his biathlon. 24 hours of racing, then into the water for 24 hours of surfing.

Whats up with the wetsuit?



I went to Sebring last month and there is nothing like seeing and hearing a 550/575 going down the back stretch at 150+. Seriously, it was a thing of beauty.

they are so pretty, i saw the olive garden 550 at the National GP in Wash DC.

I remember watching part of Le Mans last year on tv.

No one would believe me that it was 24 hours long...and that i could have watched the whole thing.

Does anyone know how much of it will be shown on SPEED this year? I know a while back they actually showed the entire 24 hours but later discontinued that practice.
