LeMans 2016
Most important race of the year coming up. Does anyone know if they are doing a live stream again this year?

Edit - (amazing what characters disappear when you touch type with one shortened finger)

RE: LeMans 2016
i can't wait. the whole racing year revolves around this weekend.

i think the wec has official paid streams this year, but i'm not sure.

here's hoping for a porsche repeat.

Yes, this will be a great racing weekend. Mark Webber seems to be enjoying the time of his life.

RE: LeMans 2016
Sadly, Toyota have discovered that the first requirement of an endurance race is to endure. To make it worse for them, if Nakajima had stopped just before the chequered flag he might have been still running at the chequered flag.

Not often you come across a race where what had been the leading car spends something like two hours in the pits and still considered it worthwhile to keep racing.

that's endurance racing. you never know what's going to happen to the other guys. the best is when they're near the end of a race and have a mechanical issue that will take longer than the remaining time to fix, but they fix it as fast as they can anyway just for practice.

the manthey porsche gt team punctured a radiator yesterday and we found out that they have quick change radiators. flip a couple latches and they slide ride out, radiator fluid spraying everywhere. they got the whole thing changed and back on track in under a minute.

i'm guessing you're not such a fan of the rather dubious penalty issued to risi boys in the closing minutes of the race.
