Steve McQueen is driving his deep forrest green 912 through the Porsche Curves...waiting for this to be nodded.

It's my GF'S birthday and it's 2:30am and I'm drunk. 6hrs till race coverage starts.

The broad will want a blueberry muffin when the Audi's are on the way to domination.

And I still have to shake-off hockey drunk.

Oohhhhhh man....

Le Mans is a sausage party now? crap
 
2014-06-14 08:44:49 AM  
I really don't want to go to work today.

TheHighlandHowler: 24 Hours of Lemons?


that's probably the one thing i'd rather be doing than watching the race right now
 
2014-06-14 08:47:15 AM  
Glad to see we have a thread ready.  Lets get ready for a long day/night.
 
2014-06-14 08:47:49 AM  
let's see how much of the race i get to see today.  i already know it;ll be down from the 20 hours i caught last year just because of the world cup being on.  why couldn't they start that next weekend?

/stupid fifa

Coffee's on (west coast here), Let's get this started.....Morning all !!
 
2014-06-14 08:59:03 AM  
Porsche curves had some brutal accidents in practice.
 
2014-06-14 09:00:27 AM  
green!
 
2014-06-14 09:05:19 AM  
they said audi was down on top speed, but who needs it when they pass everyone in the twisty bits
 
2014-06-14 09:09:38 AM  
racer.com had a link with a spotters guide, radio links, etc. early in the week, but now that the race is on I can't find it. Of course, it is ass o'clock in the morning so I'm probably doing something wrong.
 
2014-06-14 09:18:17 AM  
Much as I'd really love to see the #2 atop the podium again, I don't think it'll be happening.  Toyota's got it down this year.

Between this and the WC matches later today, my kids are going to have to live without TV today...

Won't stop US Le Mans fans from crying like babies when it gets preempted for a NASCAR Truck race at Gateway later tonight, Subby.

I hope the C7's do well. I remember in last year's race, the C6's kept spinning out with hilarious regularity. Oh, and of course the Ferrari's kept causing wrecks.
 
2014-06-14 09:25:31 AM  
zeod definitely zero emissions now

So I don't follow the WEC too closely outside of Le Mans. Are there any other cool tech developments on these cars that might be interesting to read up on? Does the Corvette team still run that cool radar display?

not sure if they still use the radar, GM is having Callaway build the GT3 version, European GT3 racing are still all C6

rain time
 
2014-06-14 10:33:47 AM  
So, judging from the results so far, it looks like Toyota finally has a car that doesn't suck.

I wish the Vipers were there. Hopefully, now that they're back under the Dodge banner, they'll be back next year - it doesn't feel right without them.

And with the now heavy rain, everybody goes full retard...and a Ferrari may have touched it off. Again.
 
2014-06-14 10:34:47 AM  
way to go ferarri.  easy to go fast in the rain, but a lot harder to stop
 
2014-06-14 10:34:53 AM  
Well a rather eventful beginning so far.  I love the rain even if it becomes rather expensive for teams.
 
2014-06-14 10:35:38 AM  
Did that Ferrari take out two LMP1s in one shot? It's hard to tell with the typically horrible camera work/lack of angles.
 
2014-06-14 10:40:52 AM  
seems like the toyota was sideways, but the ferrari did plow through the both of them
 
2014-06-14 10:41:02 AM  
Check that - the Toyota may be at fault.

Unintended acceleration strikes again!
 
2014-06-14 10:45:04 AM  
toyota going with the open wheel look.  maybe they can petition for their own class for the new body style

so the instigator goes on and the audi has to retire
 
2014-06-14 10:47:35 AM  
That was just irresponsible driving considering the conditions.
 
2014-06-14 10:48:28 AM  
toyota seemed to hit the guide rail and missed the audi and then the ferrari blasted the audi
 
2014-06-14 10:52:20 AM  
It is tough to tell with lack of angles.  I think we can all agree the Ferrari was going a bit too fast for conditions and unable to maneuver when the incident occurred.

i just like blaming ferrari

Clownshoes in my endurance race?  It's more likely than you think.

We get screwed from 5-6:30. That looks to be it.

I get screwed because the majority of the race is on FS2, which I don't get in HD.
 
2014-06-14 11:05:24 AM  
Looks like the Audi was hit by both of the other cars. Double-tapped.

The feed on 24 hour Le Mans web site is pretty good. If it wasn't, I'd be screwed for the next 7.5 hours.

Same here. I did get the LeMan app on iPad, which offers streaming from several cars. Corvette streaming is available on the Fox sports app, iirc.

Damn that Aston sounds like the snarl of an angry god.

That Duval Audi was DESTROYED!

/also, just saw "the big one" in the race.  Have a great day everyone!
 
2014-06-14 11:33:30 AM  
http://www.radiolemans.com  live audio plus the video from the ACO feed above works pretty good for me.
 
2014-06-14 11:38:27 AM  
More rain delay parading...Audi #1 is tired of seeing the back of some random Porsche.
 
2014-06-14 11:59:38 AM  
damn world cup time.  i should've planned ahead and tried to wire up 2 tvs next to each other so i can watch both and still do internetty stuff
 
2014-06-14 12:35:15 PM  
World cup on the TV, Le Mans on the phone (FSGO), and a bunch of tabs on the computer.

All I need to do is get the wife and kids to leave and it'll be a great day.
 
2014-06-14 01:42:50 PM  
Announcers are already getting punchy on my feed.

Hate to root against anyone, but I'd rather not have a Toyota win. The maintenance crew would have to take down the banners bragging on Mazda being the only Asian manufacturer to win the overall.
 
2014-06-14 01:54:52 PM  
soccer over, back to racing
 
2014-06-14 01:57:06 PM  
these announcers should stop trying to explain technology
 
2014-06-14 02:01:10 PM  
Well so far the cars are holding together.
 
2014-06-14 02:09:56 PM  
more commercials than racing going on now
