    Seeing the first and second place GTE-Pro cars, #99 Aston and #64 Corvette, so close to each other in the pits must have given both teams some motivation to get things sorted as soon as possible. As unfortunate as that incident was for the #99 car and as much as I was enjoying the battle and would have preferred for the Corvette to take the lead under racing conditions, I'm still glad that #64 is back in the GTE-Pro class lead.

    #64 Corvette now changing brake pads, let's hope their driver remembers to pump the brakes after. #51 Ferrari now leads.

    #99 Aston in garage.
    #46 Oreca being assisted by crane. Somehow made it back to garage 15 minutes later.

    Big shuffle around at the top of the LMP1 class, just goes to show how quickly things can change and go wrong in this race.

    Aston Martin #96 went into the wall hard

    Corvette #64 and Ferrari #51 exited pit lane almost side by side, should be an interesting battle to watch for 1st place in GTE-Pro with just under 6 hours left

    Nissan #42 stopped to take a piss on the front straight

    Audi #9 in big trouble, pretty much seals the Porsche 1-2 now unless something happens to them :hmmm:

    Ferrari #51 in the pits, Corvette #64 has retaken the GTE-Pro class lead. Looks like this will put the GTE-Pro class win out of reach of the #51 car.

    Nissan #23 decided it wanted to be a Ferrari


    ...and caught fire.

    Last year the winning car completed 379 laps. At the moment, #19 is doing its 374th lap an hour and something before the race finishes. :eek:

    Great race! Congrats to Porsche on the 1-2 finish and for knocking Audi from their win streak. Sad to see the Toyota's finish 8 and 9 laps down, but they definitely had a great run, not a single problem for the whole race. If they can make up the pace again for next year they'll be real contenders for the win with how reliable their cars proved to be this year.


    Glad Corvette #64 snagged a first place in GTE-Pro for Corvette Racing. Shame #63 never got to start the race.


    Horrible luck for Aston Martin #98 in the GTE-Am class, they were leading their class for the most of the race then crashed out with only 45 minutes left, but they did manage to last 23+ hours, anything can happen in a race this long.


    More bad luck for Nissan with the LMP1 class cars, but considering this was their first year back in so long and that they're trying something so different, I'm impressed they had one car (#22) finish and another (#23) lasting as long as it did before having fire/gearbox issues.


    As usual, can't wait for next year now! Thanks for the company everyone :D

    Good race this year and congrats to Porsche on Win #17. Was also happy to see the Vette win over the Aston as not a fan much of them anymore. :cheeky: Well done the winning Ferrari in not crossing the line on fire and to the others who completed the full length of the race, it's no mean feat after all and deserves a lot of respect.

    Now if Nissan and Toyota can bring great cars next year it will be a real hell of a battle!
