Yep, Toyota did it again.

Well, a 1-2 win – not unexpected, was it? Even so, we had a Glickenhaus on the podium, which was quite nice to see. Some say that Toyota, Glickenhaus and Alpine were only “place holders” until things get really serious next year, when the “big boys” will be back. In LMP2 Jota did a great race, and this year was the last race for GTE-Pro, which was kind of sad to see. At least Ferrari didn’t win. Anything 🤣. Shame to see that no Corvette finished on the podium, though (and they started REALLY well).

In the end a nice race. The great part is that there’s just one year to go for Le Mans 2023 🏆.

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).

FIA WEC

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! 🐮

Cadillac joins the party

Today Cadillac revealed a small teaser of their upcoming IMSA/WEC Hypercar prototype. They only showed a computer rendering and a very short film on their Instagram account. Therefor, information is so far pretty scarce. If everything goes as planned, the car, co-developed by Dallara and Cadillac Racing, will be ready for the 2023 season. Autosport has a little more to tell.

Things are looking quite bright for 2023…

Peugeot 9X8

And today we get news from Peugeot… Their new 9X8 is still undergoing testing, but boy does that car looks ICE cool! Looks like 2023 is going to be quite interesting 🏁.

New Porsche prototype

This past Friday, at the Weissach test track, Porsche rolled-out its new LMDh prototype. Intended for both WEC and IMSA series, the car will be ready later this year. According to Motorsport.com, Team Penske will be responsible for the factory effort in both series in 2023.

For a Porsche fanboy AND a Le Mans nut, that is great news 😎.

Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

Last week (October 1st to 3rd), on the shores of Lake Como in northern Italy, happened the annual Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The event takes place annually on the grounds near the Villa d’Este hotel in Cernobbio. It usually happens in May, and is possibly the most famous of all the world-class Concours d’Elegance. Petrolicious, as always, wrote a great essay on the event, with some SPECTACULAR photos.
