I found this article which might be a help for new forum members who are not yet familiar with the Le Mans Series racing:


This is the Le Mans Series

Contested for the first time in 2004, the Le Mans Series (LMS) is open for sports prototypes and GT vehicles. The regulations are based on the rules of the Le Mans 24 hour race. Five championship rounds are contested this season on traditional circuits throughout Europe. The races run over a distance of 1,000 kilometres, with a maximum of 6 hours.

The starting field consists of two different sports vehicle categories: Sports prototypes and standard sports cars. They are divided into four classes:

LMP1 class: Sports prototypes with up to 700 hp and a minimum weight of 900 kilograms. Power to weight ratio: approx. 1.3 kg/hp.
LMP2 class: Sports prototypes with around 440 hp (with normally-aspirated engine) and an 825 kilogram minimum weight. Power to weight ratio: approx 1.8 kg/hp.
GT1 class: Heavily modified standard sports cars with up to 650 hp and a minimum weight of 1,125 1,325 kilograms.
GT2 class: Slightly modified standard sports cars with between 450-460 hp and a minimum weight of 1,145 1,345 kilograms. The Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R competes in this class.

All race cars start together but are classified separately according to the class. This system ensures gripping racing with many overtaking manoeuvres. Points are only allocated for placings in each class. Championship titles are awarded for drivers, manufacturers and teams in all four classes.

Does anyone know if Spyker is still at all preparing to go racing again? Last year the word was that Spyker would take a break from racing to prepare the Aileron GT2R, but I have heard nothing of that since.. I hope to see that beauty on the tracks soon!

Isn't there something like a production minimum of 25 cars?

I think Spyker will eventually come back to racing but first things (production etc.) first. If they go racing they want to be able to compete with the best again so it will take quite some time to develop, prepare etc.

I totally agree. I do not expect an C8 Aileron at LeMans next year but if so I can't wait to be there to support the squadron!

But Spykerowner.com as a small sponsor sounds great.
