    I was down at Oreca (in France) last weekend, couldn't take photos of the developmental race stuff, obviously very guarded but they were kind enough to show me, and no photos in their amazing carbon fabrication labs either. Saw their LMP racer looking promising for this years Le Mans :) Anyway I found a photo I'd never seen before from '96 Le Mans to share with you:

    And the original early Reynard GTS-R hood (that I've been trying to buy for years!)

    A quick funny, adding myself to the drivers wall of fame (!) but, see how many Viper drivers you can spot, those pics had to be at least over 10 years ago!

    Sadly they are done with the Viper racing, they sold out...but, the new Dodge Motorsport Europe is Oreca Viper manger now as a separate company. Oreca are still running a lot of race teams, from Audi's to Nissan I saw, but their eye-opener is the LMP2. this is an internet photo, as I respected not to take any of the car in its component form.
