    Yup, it's that time of the year again! Time flies, huh? :eek: Order food and drinks and get ready for what might be the most anticipated Le Mans race in the last years - 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Ford's 1-2-3 victory in the 24h race and they're back at it again with a new GT. ​

    Nice setup! Usually have something Le Mans 24H in the background so will be following along while watching the BTCC over this weekend.

    Been looking forward to this for a while as I was a bit busy during the N24. Going to set an alarm for 2:30 so I remember to make it for the start.

    Just looking at the forecast, and judging by how crazy the weather has been in Europe this month i'd say we're in for a race where the weather might throw in some added entertainment/hurdles.

    As long as the safety car comes out during those moments it should be a fun watch. :p

    I wonder if they'll more strictly enforce the use of stability control on the safety car now...

    Watching right now, the Ustream one as it's free, neutral and seems like a stable and good stream. I don't care at all about the brand-tied streams.

    Yeah it's been quite good lately. Watching the faster cars having to negotiate the traffic at the speeds they are as well as while defending or trying to push up for position is throwing up a few :eek: moments.

    Audi #7 is going slower than 80 km/h slow zone limit. This has not been as smooth as past years for either Audi or Porsche and we've just hit the 12 hour remaining mark now.

    Now it's getting interesting! Leading Toyota suddenly hit the limiter at 200km/h with just over 5 minutes remaining! In GTE Pro, Ford seems to go for a 1-2 finish after the 488 was pushed to position 3 after broken lights on the car.

    Feel so sorry for Toyota. Wonder what happened with it to lose so much power gifting the win to Porsche who takes it for the 18th time! I'm really wanting it to be more a mechanical or technical issue than anything human error as that would be an absolute horrible thing to have to live with and have on your CV.
