It’s official: bulls will run at La Sarthe in 2024!

This was just posted on FIA WEC’s site: Lamborghini will offically race at Le Mans!

Lamborghini Squadra Corse will enter the FIA World Endurance Championship Hypercar class in 2024 with its first LMDh prototype, eligible for both FIA WEC and the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship (GTP class).

Obviously Lamborghinis had raced at La Sarthe before, but this will be the first time for a factory effort. For me at least, this was always my gripe with Lamborghini. Looks like I can’t complain anymore.
It was about time! 🐮

T80: another video

Last week, Scarf And Goggles published a very nice video on the Mercedes’ Blackbird. It has a different perspective than B Sport’s video (I showed it on April 3rd), and with different footage. So if you have an interest in LSR cars and/or the Silver Arrows, be sure to watch this one too.

By the way, Scarf And Goggles has some VERY interesting on vintage LSR cars.

T80: Mercedes’ LSR monster

A couple of days ago, totally by accident, I stumbled upon this video. Well, it was in my YouTube suggested videos, however under the “Classic cars” label. Since it wasn’t on the front page, I almost missed it. Fortunately, that night I clicked on the “Classic cars” tab and to my surprise I saw a new video on the T80. Since the car never actually raced (when WWII started Mercedes had to halt the project) there’s not much information about it. Info is scarce and footage is even rarer. Even so, B Sport managed to unearth a lot of details and even some images that I’ve never had seen before. With that, if you have an interest in vintage LSR cars or motorsports engineering, this is a very interesting video.
