    In a Porsche or Audi though? Tired of seeing Audi win.

          Found some more info, Stefan is looking to Audi (if the R10 will be available for private teams that is). Potential third driver is Mattias Ekstrom, 2004 DTM champion 2005 DTM runner-up.
          Also, Kenny and family has moved to Brussels, Belgium.

            I wish him nothing but the best for the rest of his life.

            Couldn't ask for a better driver or person.

                I hope he can run in LeMans. If he won, he would then join AJ Foyt as the only men to win both Indy and LeMans, would he not?

                  Yup.

                  Though A.J. did it in the same year.

                    I hope he races at LeMans and wins going away. KB is one of the best champions of both the IRL and 500.

                      Nope. Pretty sure Graham Hill is in that club.

                        Yes, Graham Hill in 1972 with Henri Pescarolo in a Matra-Simca.

                        No I didn't know that without looking it up.

                        And that's assuming that Hill did indeed win the 1966 Indy 500.

                        So Kenny would make it 3, a pretty exclusive club.

                          In the story, Brack said that he had retired from full season racing, but was open to one-offs like Le Mans AND Indy 500, so there is still a possibility that we will see him at Indy again.

                            Actually, Davy Jones came VERY close, winning Le Mans in 1996, second at Indy the same year.

                            Gurney came reasonably close, winning Le Mans in 1967, second at Indy the next year.

                            Mario's best Le Mans finish was 2nd at Le Mans in 1995. Sullivan finished 3rd in 1994, and Cheever's best was a 5th in 1987 with Jag.

                            Al Holbert, John Paul, Teo Fabi, Don and Bill Whittington (winners in 1979), Vern Schuppan, Sam Posey, Ronnie Bucknum, Denny Hulme, Mark Donohue and Lloyd Ruby were also Indy car guys who did pretty well at Le Mans.

                            But speaking as someone who held hardcards at Le Mans and Indy this year, while Johansson will continue to try to win the 24 Hours, don't look for great things from that team. The ACO shuffled the cards to help the Pescarolos and hurt the Audis this year, and while Audi prevailed, it won't happen again. The ACO would love to see a French team win again - for the first time since Peugeot, 12 years ago.

                            I think it will be difficult to beat Pescarolo next year.

                            Still, I'm with you guys - it would be great to have Kenny on the top step of the podium at the Sarthe.
