***While the test day has come to an end, the paddock remains busy with activity on Monday. Almost all of the teams are still at work, rebuilding and prepping their cars for race week activities.

***Several teams are planning to shake down their cars at the Bugatti circuit tomorrow, including Nissan, Toyota, Rebellion Racing, OAK Racing and SMP Racing.

***Work continues in the Nissan camp, after what’s been some sleepless nights for the mechanics over the last few weeks, enough to take the “sleep” out of its #EatSleepRaceRepeat moniker!

***Aston Martin Racing traveled to the famous Hotel de France in La Chartre-sur-le-Loir to recreate a bit of history. The hotel served as the headquarters for a number of Le Mans teams through the years, including John Wyler’s Aston Martin and Gulf Oil teams in the late 50s.

***Perrinn Limited’s LMP1 car will not be on display at Le Mans next week, as originally planned. The MyLMP1 program, run by Nicolas Perrin, however, remains ongoing.
