Events for the 24 Hours of Le Mans will begin on 8 June, beginning with technical inspections before initial practice begins on 10 June. Due to the cancellation of the May test session, the Wednesday track session has been altered to practice only, with no qualification times being recorded. Qualifying will therefore only take place on Thursday.

Thursday, 11 June 19:00 – 21:00 Qualifying

Personally, the R15 is the most interesting looking prototype in years. I love all the little aero pieces, and the LED rear lights which have been mounted on the rear wing. It just looks ace in general, a lot better than the dreary R10. I cannot wait to see Mcnish in the R15 at Goodwood, I will have to take a close look. Its just a shame it hasn't got an evil sounding engine.

I am looking foward to practice and qualifying, at Sebring the Peugeot pulled away on the straights, due to having two more cylinders. Lets see what the lap times are like today.

rumour is the peugeot had 100 more horse power than the old audi v12.

i woundn't say the r10 was dreary, but it's not as exciting as the r15

I would say that the R10 just doesn't look very interesting, the R15 has many bits sticking out - I love that.

So if the Peugeot V12 had 100 bhp more than the old Audi V12, then imagine what the new Audi V10 has with two cylinders less? Anyway, lets see the ultimate pace tonight.

cylinders dosen't mean power, the f430 v8 and the lmborghini gallardo v10 have similar power

it's rev and the way you use the power, engine mapping that makes the biggest difference.

Press Release: Team Peugeot Total
Wednesday 10 June 2009 - 15h45

At 10.35am today, Wednesday June 10, 2009, and in compliance with the Article 29.2 of the specific regulations of the 2009 Le Mans 24 Hours, Team Peugeot Total lodged a protest with the Race Director and the President of the Sporting Stewards of the Le Mans 24 Hours concerning the entrant Audi and the non-compliance of the three Audi prototypes with the ACO's 2009 technical regulations.

It would indeed seem that two features of the Audi R15 – in the configuration in which it was shown at technical scrutineering for the 2009 Le Mans 24 Hours on June 8 – do not comply with Article 3.6.2 of the current technical regulations:

- The flap which links the two front wings.
- The appendages fixed to the inner surface of the front wings.
These appendages and this flap effectively form part of the bodywork and their sole purpose is to generate downforce. These bodywork parts are considered to be aerodynamic elements. Since they do not appear on the list of aerodynamic elements authorised my Article 3.6.2, they are consequently not permitted.

Certain aspects of the car’s non-compliance were pointed out to the ACO last March at the 12 Hours of Sebring, a round of the ALMS. “Our protest dossier was already ready at the time, but the Automobile Club de l’Oest made assurances that it would take the necessary steps ahead of the Le Mans 24 Hours,” explains Olivier Quesnel. “I insist on the fact that our approach is constructive and not aggressive. It seeks to clarify that is an unclear situation with a view to obtaining clear, precise regulations in order to prepare for the future. All competitors need stable, firm regulations that apply to everyone, with a strong regulatory body capable of taking decisions. We intend to take this matter to its conclusion, not with the intention of weakening endurance racing but of making it stronger. Should our protest not be upheld by the sporting stewards, we will lodge an appeal with motor sport’s supreme governing body, the FIA.”

“Now that this procedure is underway,” concludes Olivier Quesnel, “all our energy is now focused on our priority objective for 2009 which is to try to win the Le Mans 24 Hours. May the racing begin.”

You can get more power out of a V12 though, and considering the R10 had less power than the 908, the new V10 motor is unlikely to help that.

The latest road going Gallardo has 550 bhp, the F430 Scuderia has 503 bhp - a fair difference. But I appreciate your point.
