“Simplify, then add lightness”

– Colin Chapman

This is what Lotus was created for.  Lightweight and simple sports cars.  Colin Chapman would be rolling in his grave if he ever saw the blasphemy Lotus (now run by Malaysian automaker Proton) just churned out recently at the Paris Motor Show.

2010 Petit Le Mans

1,000 miles. 10 hours. 45 cars. 1 race.

If you’re not watching anything on TV this weekend, please watch Petit on SpeedTV.  If you don’t have SPEED, check out live timing and scoring at the American Le Mans Series RaceHub.

Each class will have their own incredible battles.  Peugeot vs. Audi? Highcroft vs. Muscle Milk Racing? Flying Lizard vs. Rahal Letterman Racing BMW? Hoooly crap this is going to be awesome.
