* Le Mans Series: What recession? Supposedly a team count has entries of just under 50 cars, including an Audi R10 TDI to be entered by a private team (look for a lot of Ingolstadt folk on holiday in their pit) along with a huge GT field. Skeptics doubt the legitimacy of the grid size and for good reason. As to how much funding is really out there for discretionary racing... maybe they just budget better than we do. I doubt it though.
