    Just a matter of time mr Friendly Voice :)
  3. well the Japanese matey who is the creator of Gran Turismo has confirmed that there will be night racing on GT5. Anyone up for Le Mans or Nordschleife 24? lol
  4. Well yeah but will GT5 have Le Mans cars :)?

    I think we are due for a good Le Mans based sim. Whether it be ALMS or international. Either that or some Le Mans cars for GTR Evo.
  5. Why exactly do you think that? there has always been a Playstation sponsored car in Le Mans and Le Mans series for the past few years.
  6. yep, that has always been a sad sight ... but that rFactor mod looks awesome.

    Dave Richards was very impressed of the laptimes Verstappen did during the night in the LMP 2 Porche last year!

    007 & 009 with 008 is a independent Lola Aston.

    Don't forget we have two more Dutch drivers in LMP1:
    Charles Zwolsman and Christijan Albers
    Both driving for Team Kolles in the Audi LMP1 cars 14 and 15

  16. Jos Verstappen has crashed his Aston Martin at Monza with over 300 Km/h.

    The Dutchmen was testing at the Autodrome Nazionale.
    Jos said that he applied the brakes in a turn when the wheels of his LMP1 Aston locked and spun the car.
    I wasn't even pushing for a fast lap said Verstappen.
    Verstappen whas testing for the Le Mans 24 hours on 13/14 June.
    Jos escaped with a sore neck and hand.
    His Aston Martin needs to be rebuild before the endurance race in France.

    Last year Verstappen finished on the top of the podium in the Merkenstijen Porsche in the LMP2 class.
    If Jos will climb the podium again this year remains to be seen.
