    Nice! When the camera followed the Mazda's wheel to the armco... right in front of those to fellas, I started cracking up, turned to my friend and said, "yep, living the high life alright! Must of had Miller on their corn flakes."

    Now why this photoshopper decided to throw Cristie in there... not sure?

    There's a handful of version of that image out there.

    It was (unsurprisingly) announced Alonso will do Le Mans with Toyota. Surprisingly though, he will also do other WEC events that don't conflict with F1. Kinda surprised it's in Davidson's seat though.

    Why? Davidson was done for it.
    And Alonso will bring more publicity.

    It seems Fuji have asked for a date change so Alonso can race there too. I wonder what will happen if he had a big accident in WEC and can't race in F1? how will McLaren feel about that I wonder?

    Le Mans Entry List, with WEC entries also marked
    https://assets.lemans.org/explorer/p...-mans-2018.pdf

    6 LMP1 teams for 10 cars, each team with a completely different chassis and engine combination. Rebellion with their own Oreca-built chassis and uprated Gibson LMP2 motors, ByKolles with their previous car with Nismo motor, Manor/TRSM with Ginetta-Mecachromes, SMP with their own Dallara-built BR1s with upgraded AER motors, and DragonSpeed with a BR1-Gibson combo.

    LMP2 has a lot more variety instead of being an Oreca train, but still no Rileys and only a handful of Dallaras.

    Big news is in LMGTE Pro with the US Porsche GT squad combining with the WEC squad for a 4-car team. Ford is doing the same as well with four GTs, and AF Corse has also added a third car for Le Mans. Two new BMW M8s, two new Aston Martins, and the two usual Corvettes.

    LMGTE Am also has the majority of Porsche teams now running the mid-engine 911 RSR, which should shake things up.
