AFN is completely ignoring the race. Shocking. Glad there's a stream available so I can keep up!

Ferrari's ramming cars left and right. What a surprise.

Good Morning (California here) I'm riding with Corvette....... any word on the driver in the bad crash ?
 
2013-06-22 11:45:32 AM  
ACO said he was awake and alert about 30 min after the crash, if it's the Aston Martin crash you're talking about.

Wish I had a better stream; commentary is 15-20 sec. behind the video.

He's conscious. Released video from a car behind him, there were a few cars braking ahead of him at the turn, he in turn braked and ending up hooking to the left into the barrier.

Vette's aren't doing so hot so far. I've seen 2 spin outs and 2 run offs.

Thanks! Much better now!

I love this race and all endurance races. The prototypes are amazing. The difference between them and the GT cars is really something to see.

Is there a "Garage 56" entry this year? Next year's Nissan entry for that is pretty interesting... Coupe Deltawing Hybrid.

Damn...don't even need to see the actual crash to know that wasn't going to end well...
 
2013-06-22 12:10:56 PM  
There are a few clips on youtube. Story is that he went wide to miss a Ferrari.
 
2013-06-22 12:12:39 PM  
Tellingthem:

Ya, damn shame. I thought he was alright, they said he was able to walk away into the ambulance and then was reported conscious at the hospital. No idea how his condition deteriorated so quickly.

Corvette just doesn't have the top end power to hang in there with the Aston Martin's....

Is it confirmed? I didn't notice them talking about it on SPEED. (Though it wouldn't surprise me for them to be way behind what's going on.

Yeah, but it'd help if they weren't trying to pit at the same time or constantly trying to miss corners. Heh.

They're working really hard at NOT talking about it, but I think the story is:
1-crashed
2-walked to ambulance
3-went to hospital
4-died

Yikes...just saw the memorandum on Speed.

That blows.

I started watching a bit of the race about 20 minutes before I had to go to work and I almost got to work late as a result!

/Time gets away from you watching this
//Didn't see the crash, however
/Can't believe he went from "awake and walking" to dead so fast, it seems

Maybe the Sequester cuts caught up to Corvette Racing ??
 
2013-06-22 12:31:48 PM  
Could have been an internal bleed, or brain hemorrhage. I knew a guy who died that way. In a car accident, tells the rescue guys he's fine, go check on the other guy. He was dead when they came back.

Yeah that'd be my guess. They may also have been not letting on as to how bad he actually was.

Does anyone know if he hit the barrier head on because the video posted up thread seemed like that's what happened. However, this video shows a lot of damage to the rear.
 
2013-06-22 12:38:27 PM  
so they DID end up changing the nose on the 12..

also, how well do the hybrids generally do?
 
2013-06-22 12:43:21 PM  
you knew it wasn't good when they wouldn't talk about it right away and no ambulance left the track

I'm not 100% on this from what I've seen: Audi is expected to win...again, the hybrids can go further before needing to refuel (1-3 extra laps than the Audis) however they are slower than the Audis. Also the Toyotas are better on wet roads than the Audis, but Audi is still the front runner.

no i think it was a side impact. Here is the view of the front of the car. http://youtu.be/cCiMk8MYGeo?t=9m7s

General chatter is that he hit driver's side.

Eurosport said they were putting him on the backboard after the crash, and then there was nothing, then a release from the ACO saying he was concious, then just awhile ago the notice that he had died shortly after the crash at the care center.

If all of the reports were accurate, embolism or clot?  It certainly caught the Eurosport team out by surprise when they read the news.

Yeah, that view shows heavy damage on the driver's side. Damnit all.

The Audis are hybrids, too.

Wife and daughter both went out to visit a friend, leaving me with 50 megs of bandwidth and a large supply of mexican coca-cola. I'm pretty much set.

Just picked up a case from Mi Pueblo yesterday. Only soda I drink.
