    Let's hope the Delta has a strong showing this year.

    Toyota quit going to LeMans years ago. I guess it was just a matter of time before BMW followed their lead. Click here to enlarge

    Toyota was back last year in LMP1. I have a feeling they are going to be real strong this year.

    Not sure if ACO would allow them to run the Z4 or not. My guess is no.
