Friday the 13th: The calm before the storm.

Friday Pitwalk

The Friday at Le Mans is always a chill day at the track, The only thing going on for spectators is a pit lane walk-through, which really turns into quite the mob scene

Even though the day is suppose to be somewhat relaxing for the teams, as there are no cars going out on the track, there is still work to be done, Fasteners need to be triple checked, Brake lines bled, Brakes checked and rechecked and every bit of the car given the once over.

Fans try and spot their favorite car, or drives while walking the pit lane, for some this is the closest they will ever get to their idols, or even favorite car.

Lola and Epsilon debut new chassis

One the eve of the Sebring event that will pit the top two finishers from last season's 24 hours of Le Mans comes a report from Paul Ricard Le Mans series test of two new enclosed chassis for the LM P1 class by Lola and Epsilon. The Lola chassis has been in the news since it was announced that it would team with the successful GT1 Aston Martin team with the enclosed chassis. Both of these chassis, two the naked eye, look similar to the Peugeot car that ran at last year's 23 Hours of Le Mans. Our friends at mulsannescorner.com have words and pictures from track.
