Gallery

This gallery contains images from the final round of the 2005 Le Mans Endurance Series, staged at Istanbul Park, Turkey over the weekend of November 11th to 13th 2005. This offered an LMP2 victory for RML's Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos - a great way to wrap up a successful season, but missing out on the title by a single point was still a disappointment!
