ALMS Round 9/ILMC Round 6: Petit Le Mans 29 Sep -1 Oct

With the posting of the scrutineering schedule I though it was time to start an official thread. For those who missed it, the race has been capped at 53 starters but there are currently 60 entries. To summarize, the process for getting down to 53 involves the challenge classes having to earn their start by qualifying, with the fastest cars getting the start. The exact number of challenge cars allowed in will depend on how many cars from the "real" aco classes actually show up.

On track activities start with the test days the Sunday and Monday before the race (Sept 25-26). There is another test session on Wednesday before the official practice sessions start on Thursday. I'm really looking forward to this race!

The pedant in me wants to point out that this really is an ILMC race foremost, and an ALMS race secondarily. This is tagged as ALMS race 9, but it really is ILMC Race 6 (alms race 9)

Are you working for the ACO?

And I disagree, it's foremost an ALMS event. They don't play second fiddle nearly as much as LMS does for ILMC

No, I don't work for the ACO, just a pedant who is disappointed that the owner/management group of the ALMS agreed to participate in the devaluation of the series.

Disagree all you want, but opinions are irrelevant. The contracts state it is an ILMC event, the Marketing rights go to ILMC/ACO, and the TV rights go primarily to ILMC/ACO. ILMC cars are preferred entrants over ALMS entrants. These are simply the facts. If we wish to argue further about it, there is the ILMC/WEC thread, perhaps we should leave this to people who wish to talk about the race?

That's funny, I don't know why I chose ALMS over ILMC for the title, it wasn't a conscience decision. I guess I am just used to the tradition of Petit being a ALMS Round.

Maybe a Mod can change the thread title to "ALMS Round 9/ILMC Round 6: Petit Le Mans"

JK Vernay might be with Signatech if Ayari is unavailable again like at Silverstone, and Duval is racing in Super GT on the same weekend so he's definitely unavailable.

I'm hoping to gain employment to justify going. I just moved to Greenville and they have some big ALMS attraction a few days before PLM, so at least I'll see something.

Thanks for getting this going, joeb. I know I can't wait...believe I am half way there already, or at least, I was yesterday.

I've been in that boat before...

With the support races, the general atmosphere surrounding this ILMC event and the potential entry, I suggest you do whatever you got to do to be there.

I'm in the same boat, but at Mr. Field said, this race is a must. I might add that if you are already going to be in SC, then the trip really isn't that bad. I recently moved to Michigan, so it is going to be a haul for me!

I've been waiting for this thread to open up. I'll be heading to PLM this year and, after visiting Le Mans this year, I can't wait to see these machines again.
