  • Has Indy been replaced by LeMans as the worlds greatest race?

    With LeMans being ultra competitive, and all the interest from the worlds leading car manufactures, drivers, sponsors, fans. With the history of the event dating back to 1923, the incredible track (17+Km) although shortened in the modern era to 13Km, has LeMans taken over as the greatest race?

    IMO LeMans has a world wide appeal, with the toughest competition in racing. It's been transformed from a 24 endurance race into a 24 sprint race thanks to Audi, Porsche, Chevy, etc. With what Indy 500 is today compared to what LeMans 24 Hours is today I think LeMans is now the greatest race in the world.

          Both Ginger and Mary Ann must be in their late 60's or early 70's now!

                Good point on LeMans. Well you're going to have some people say IMS (actually the majority), some say Daytona, a few here LeMans, and perhaps a couple Monaco.

                I like them all, but I'll also add the Baja 1000, not really a race track, but an endurance. You could also add Dakar.

                  I've always been a MaryAnn kind of guy. She was the classic girl next door beauty. Ginger was kind of a pris.

                  Having said that, comparing LeMans to Indy is not a good idea. Both are radically different forms of racing. Each are great in their particular genre.

                    Actually, Doc, I did watch the Rolex 24 Hour
                    (you have Bobby Labonte to thank for that! )

                    ps...I never could bake a pie (or anything for that matter!), so I identify more with Ginger.

                      Le Mans has always been bigger than Indy.

                              I'll file that under "Things to Do When I Win the Lottery".
