I've been listening to Radio LeMans via the web for most of the race (No
Speedvision, thank god for the web). The general consensus of the announcers
and the competitors they interviewed is that MG has made an outstanding
return to LeMans and are a force to be reckoned with in the future. At one
point MG was outlapping the race winning Audi's by 18 seconds per lap, this
was at night and in the rain.

A MG entry in the American LeMans series would be very cool as well...
