>>This Lancia LC2 was spotted a few weekends ago by Dirk de Jager at Spa's RMU Classic.  Amongst the Lancia(s), there was a veritable plethora of Group C and GTP machinery.  Suffice to say, Dirk has provided future reference material for many chassis yet to be covered on these pages.


>>Chris Randall's Nissan NPT-90 is having some engine work done to it.  This is the Nissan V6 on the dyno moments prior to the valves holing a piston.  Note the glowing exhaust!  Chris indicates, "We are having trouble controlling the wastegates at high rpm...It's making good power already but we still have work to do.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we will make it to Silverstone at the end of the month.  Can't wait to see what it feels like to be projected down the straights by all that horsepower!"


>>Alan Lis, Associate Editor for Race Tech magazine, emailed these images.

Note the gentle 'S' curve of the leading edge of the Dome's endplate extension.

>>With Le Mans Pre-qualifying having been this past weekend, Test Day images are starting to trickle in.  Here's the Bentley Speed 8 in Le Mans configuration.  Note the deep endplates on the #7 car.  Image courtesy Jerome Mugnier.
