The 24 Hours of Le Mans organizers have announced that there may be a world financial crisis, but that they have received far too many entrants for the race in June.
‘The Le Mans 24-Hours event is in rude good health and doesn’t mind admitting it,’ the Automobile Club de l’Ouest said in a statement. ‘The ACO has received 82 entry requests for the 2009 race. Despite the quality of all these candidatures only 55 cars will line up on the starting grid.’
This is bad news for those who want to see bad news in racing everywhere. Of course, it could also be what you call in times of crisis: Flight to Quality.
