Man, what a weekend for sports enthusiasts! We have World Cup Soccer starting, the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Canada, and most of all, the granddaddy of all road races, and still the most famous endurance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, is running this Saturday and Sunday. The Peugeot 908s of Team Peugeot Total are favored again, but for looks alone, the Team Oreca Matmut Peugeot 908 gets my vote! But will the Audi R15s give ’em a tough race…you bet! The GT2 grid is awesome with Ferraris, Corvettes, Ford GTs, BMWs, the usual fleet of Porsches, a Lamborghini, and a Jaguar going at it. Check out the BMW “art car” too. Fantastic!

Again, the fine folks at SpotterGuides.com and andyblackmoredesign.com have come up with a great, printable, full–color car guide detailing all the cars, liveries, and drivers lineups for each. As I mentioned in a previous post about Sebring, it can be printed BIG due to its 2500 x 1618 pixel resolution. It is on my office wall now at a very nice 11 x 17 size.

Tune in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the Speed channel beginning 5:30 am Pacific Time, Saturday, June 12.
