919 Tribute

Not GT40 but fits in nicely in this crowd...

Whatever you may think of the modern day era LMP/WEC cars, this impresses me. I watch videos and think, meh, I'm sure that is fast but it doesn't look fast- at least on TV or the internet.

This one puts that to bed. It looks like a slot car with a dozen traction magnets. It looks FAST:

It's too bad the major manufacturers have almost all stepped away from the internal combustion endurance series. I enjoyed the battles, although battling Audi for a while was a bit pointless. It will be interesting to see what becomes of the 24 in the future.

'Not making an accusation, but, some of that footage appears as though it could have been 'sped up' a tad. 'No question that thing is blindingly F-A-S-T regardless.


If I were a gadzillionaire, I think I'd have a two passenger LMP car (pseudo-'clone' of the Caddy DPi-V.R?) built for the street just for kicks and giggles! Think of all the traffic jams / rear-enders something like that might cause! :lipsrsealed:
