I was thinking how it’s funny that everyone focuses on Alonso’s triple crown attempt, but Montoya is actually racing for the complete triple crown at Le Mans. Ok, he won’t win, but he’s the one who actually has two out of three.
That got me thinking that, presuming Alonso wins Le Mans - for which there’s really only one competing car, so a good chance - a savvy promoter of both Indy and Le Mans could put their heads together to really capitalise on the fact that not one but two drivers actually have a shot.
Let’s say Alonso is completing at Indy next year ( and I think that at a minimum is a lock if he wins LM) then it would add something if Montoya is given an entry - I.e. he’s racing to try and prevent Alonso getting to the triple crown first. Then at LM, if the promoter could convince Toyota to give Montoya a seat in one of their cars (and, let’s face it, the extra attention is good for them/their sponsors etc), you could do the reverse - Alonso (perhaps in the other Toyota) is either racing to stop Montoya getting there first (presuming he didn’t win Indy) or to protect his position as the only triple crown winner of the generation.
Just seems like the kind of extra ‘storyline’ that could be created to add to this whole ‘quest’ of Alonso’s (right now, it’s kinda like he’s the only one who cares about the triple crown).
