Le Mans Series 2006
Round 5. Jarama 1000 Kilometers. September 23rd-24th 2006

The 2006 Le Mans Series drew to a close over the weekend of September 23rd-24th with the final round of the championship taking place at Jarama in Spain, some 30 kilometers from Madrid. RML and the team's two drivers, Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos, arrived at the circuit with a three-point advantage in the race for titles and an unbeaten qualifying record to defend. While they would leave the track with that remarkable qualifying achievement intact, the race itself would see them most cruelly denied the title. The MG retired just six minutes from the chequered flag at the end of a 1000 kilometer race that they had tackled with sensible restraint and tactical skill. Brief synopsis of qualifying and the race can be viewed by following the upper links below, while detailed analysis is provided by viewing the full race and qualifying reports.
