SPORTEVO in a McLaren Mercedes SLR. They are from Spain and have a gorgeous collection of cars, Ferrari F40, BMW M3 Sport Evolution etc.

Kalbas in the super-rare Mercedes AMG CLK DTM. One of 100 made which does 0-200 km/h in 10,9 s, just 0,3 s "slower" than the SLR and one second slower than the Porsche Carrera GT. He is from France or Monaco. Last year he had a Enzo Ferrari.

Members PCP and nitro in the Porsche 996 GT3 Mk II. They have an interesting Gumball coloured car just for the event.

Legendary member Lonman in the Carrera GT will do some stretces later. So I guess he will win this year as well :7: His tuned Porsche 996 GT2 fought with the Enzo Ferrrari last year and they really had to push the Enzo to leave the GT2.
