The most excellent Sam Smith at Lola has just been tweeting live from the Le Mans Series test at Paul Ricard today. Marco Andretti is partnered with Nicolas Prost and former CCWS pilot and A1GP Champion, Neel Jani in one of the Rebellion Lolas.

This, of course, means that the test is full to the brim of racing families of more than a little pedigree. There are a boat load of Mansells there and now comes the news that both Mario Andretti and Alain Prost will test the Rebellion Lola this afternoon.

So today we are in the extraordinary position of being able to compare the times Mansell Senior, Prost Senior and Andretti (very) Senior.

How truly awesome is that?

UPDATE: After some late day trouble with the Rebellion Lola, both veterans Champions are due on track later on this afternoon.
