Lola Aston Martin, 2011 Petit Le Mans- PURE SOUND!
Check out the sights and sounds that I captured at the 2011 Petit Le Mans
of quite possibly the most awesome race car currently racing on this
planet- the Aston Martin Lola!
In this video you will hear the awesome sceam of the production based V12
Aston Martin engine fro both the factory backed Gulf Aston Martin Racing
Team and Muscle Milk Aston Martin.
In the actual race the Gulf car finished 3rd overall and the Muscle Milk
car fell out early.
I was so glad to actually see this car in action! It is truly somthing to

Loeb and Sarrazin swap cars for a day.
Stephane Sarrazin's Peugeot 908 and Sebastien Loeb's Citroen C4World rally
champion Sebastien Loeb and former Le Mans Series champion Stephane
Sarrazin swapped cars in France yesterday with Loeb taking the wheel of a
Peugeot 908 HDi at Paul Ricard and Sarrazin sampling a Citroen C4 WRC on a
nearby gravel stage.
Loeb, who contested the 2005 and 2006 Le Mans 24 Hours in an LMP1
Pescarolo, drove five laps of the circuit in a specially-converted
two-seater 908, before taking 15 laps on his own - lapping just over a
second off a time set by Sarrazin.
"It was great fun and I'm delighted that Stephane and I were given this
opportunity to test our respective cars," said Loeb. "What is always
impressive about sports prototypes and single-seaters is their speed and
the amount of downforce they generate, but I have to say that I was struck
by the amount of torque delivered by the Peugeot's diesel engine.
"I was a little surprised by the restricted visibility you get from the
closed cockpit, but I soon felt confident enough to start pushing a little
harder and I savoured every minute of the experience. The time passed so
quickly and I didn't want to give the car back afterwards."
Then Sarrazin, who competed in the WRC for Subaru in 2005 and 2006, was
given a passenger ride around the 3km stage in Domaine de Riboux by Loeb
before taking over behind the wheel for 12 runs through the course -
setting similar times to Loeb.
"It's been a tremendous thrill to drive the C4 today," said Sarrazin.
"Maybe we could swap places for an event? Sebastien could take my place on
an endurance race and I could drive his car on a rally!
"Compared with the rally cars I have driven in the past, I was impressed by
its overall balance and more especially by how easy it was to set up into
"It really is a very efficient machine, and very predictable - you
immediately feel confident enough to start pushing hard. It was great and I
would love to have carried on a little longer."
Both Loeb and Sarrazin will contest the final round of the French Rally
Championship - Rallye du Var - this weekend. Loeb will be co-driven by his
wife in a Citroen C2 Super 1600, while Sarrazin will be joined by
Jacques-Julien Renucci in a Peugeot 207 RC Rallye.
ALMS Sebring 12 Hour Highlights - #30 NGT Porsche + Helicopter!
The NGT Motorsport team entered it's first professional race at the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring, which is part of the American Le Mans Series
championship. Their regular drivers Henrique Cisneros and Carlos Kauffmann
were coming off the back of winning the Patron GT3 challenge in 2010. They
enlisted Pro driver Sean Edwards to accompany them during the long distance
They were consistently fastest throughout the winter test day and most of
Sebring week, but two crashed at T17 were to push the team beyond their
normal call of duty. They were unable to qualify, but the team pulled an
all nighter and had the car ready for the morning warm up, where the car
was quickest once again!
The race got underway, with NGT climbing all the way to the lead by hour 1
and holding onto it for most of the next 6 hours. Only for a mistaken wave
by and the subsequent penalty which lost them 3 laps, they would have been
fighting for the victory. Nevertheless they fought all the way back to 3rd
place and never gave up, which was an amazing feat in their first Pro race!
They also set the fastest lap of the race on a 2.07.7.
