I still think there is a big difference. Le Mans race car engines run flat out for 4, 6, 12, 24 hours at a time. That's what I'm talking about. The whole package has to endure for longer periods at a...

Yes, but F1's races run less distance than LMP1's very shortest races. Le Mans "sprint" races go 50% longer than F1 races. It's an apples and oranges comparison. F1 cars are higher performance and...

Not always true for me (and others I know). I like an underdog with spirit, enthusiasm and drive. During ALMS my wife and I were fans of the privateer husband/wife team Roberston Racing and their...

I'm not against three car teams. On occasion some of the top tier teams (Audi, Porsche RS Spyder, Porsche Flying Lizard) ran three cars in some of the endurance ALMS races and I think it was...

Agree. All you heard was tire and wind noise. I know someone who worked corner safety and said the Audi diesels freaked him out with the way they would sneak up coming around his corner.

We went to 16 ALMS races, mostly Sebring and Petit Le Mans. At every one of them, the Audi fan base was big and intense, and there were many Audis of all kinds to be seen everywhere. On autograph...

Audi was one of the most popular brands in ALMS, second only to Corvette. They had a huge contingent of loyal fans. The marketing aspect was clearly important to them as well. You couldn't look...

No I think the Audi marque makes much more sense. Porsche has more than plenty race activity going on to market the brand. With Audi leaving LMP1 they are left with much less: some R8 racing in GT3...

It was known to be a fake entry from the beginning, to manipulate rules for how many lumps are allowed for the season.

I can't imagine Honda letting it go otherwise. The FIA/FOM knows they will quit F1 if it suits them to.

The great thing about the STi (mine is a 2011) is that it's a fantastic car off the lot. It doesn't need mods. It makes all the right sounds, power and moves out of the box. The only change I made to...

I can understand getting rid of a loved car. I'm still not over my M3 and that's been gone since '08. Last month we traded in one of our WRX STIs and got a 2015 loaded Forester 2.5i Touring. We got a...

Formula 1 has been enacting cost-cutting measures for the last decade at least. It hasn't worked. We're still in the exact same situation we were in for 2005. Just about 10 teams. The usual suspects...

LeMans racing is really where it's at. Fan friendly, race action, diversity of the race cars, and more. LMP1 is quickly becoming the pinnacle. Weber probably made a good move going to Porsche to race...
