Dead for Tax Reasons: more commercials than racing going on now


On my stream they're interviewing the guy that installs in car cameras. I expect the hot dog vendor is coming soon. Also amusing that they're watching and describing the world feed yet showing something completely different.

That's the fun of Le Mans. At some point they have nothing to say about any car or driver and given the nature of the race regular racing commentary sputters out. So it's talk to whoever you can. The real fun is about 4 AM local time when the announcers just get totally silly.

Yeah, I love that. Hell. When we had ALMS running six hours I was amazed the track announcer could keep it up.

Not a whole lot going on, closest class is GT Pro with a 27 second gap to second.  we need another sudden downpour or something.

especially when they try to find out what the drunk fans are up to just before sunrise

Taking a Le Mans break by watching the Nationwide race (and flipping back on commercials.) They got a bit stupid on the start, but they've mostly calmed down now.

Which Kyle is leading?

the one guy on the radiolemans broadcast keeps making me think richard ayoade is doing the commentary

crotchgrabber: 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.


Well, you know banners need to be replaced and phones need to be cleaned.

Neither. Chase Elliott is first, just passed DammitLarson for the lead.

The other Kyle is 6th.

24hrs of Alcohol update:

2 Becks and 7 vodka sodas in. About to head to a birthday party within walking distance. I expect that cocktail count to spike.

But within reason. I've got to pace.

Well, I'm jealous.
Pot of coffee and some eggs. Bought to change gears and have a carne asada burrito. 3.5 more hours of work.

anyone catch what caused that last safety car period? Was away a few and missed it.

Also anyone still miss Group C cars?

the 74 spun, hit a barrier and lost its nose, then parked right in the middle of the road

I believe Imperatori broke the rear axle on his Nissan...plowed through a sand trap and clipped a wall. The car ended up in a bad spot on the track.

/pushed behind the wall finally

Might be wrong about Imperatori. Bestest had the gist of it.

/not sure of the car number
//flipping back and forth between LeMans and NNS

Thank you Lord Baby Jeebus for smiting Joey Logano with 4 laps to go.

/Menard now leads
 
2014-06-14 04:05:34 PM
I love it when they start losing the daylight.
 
2014-06-14 04:07:19 PM
Menard wins.

KyBu 4th, DammitLarson 8th.

it was the 47 (slight bit of lysdexia there)..

the 74 is a Vette
 
2014-06-14 04:19:28 PM
Whoops. That's a shiatty problem to have happen for the Corvette team.

Whoa. Jordan Taylor rocking the 'merican mullet.
 
2014-06-14 04:24:28 PM
nice mullet, dude

move out of Nakajima's way!

My feed keeps crapping out. Not sure if it's my computer or on their end.

Jordan Taylors mullet is going away at Watkins Glen.

Eurosport answering Twitter Qs: "What's in the red and blue bottles that driver got?"
"We've decided one is gin and the other tonic."

Silly time approaches.

Yeah, my feed... Ben, how was your trip to the loo?
Fantastic. I brought you a present.
I'm not sure if I want it.

Still in the dark till FS2 comes back.

4 more cocktails so far and watching the US Open.
 
2014-06-14 05:57:39 PM
Noticed on my spotters guide that it doesn't list if the ZEOD has amber or white headlights. I guess nobody expected them to make it into the night.
 
2014-06-14 06:04:08 PM
Three minute penalty for Dempsey racing. Spinning the tires on the jacks.

Well, TFA has a stream.
For some insane reason, Fox Sports Go doesn't support DirecTV customers.

Is that Red Green giving an interview on RLM?
 
2014-06-14 06:55:18 PM
Five minutes until beer o'clock. Well... five minutes and a quick bike ride home, but you know... beer time!

On the ground and working for Corvette Racing. In case anyone needs a reminder of what we've brought to the dance...

Enlightened Liberal: 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.


Nope, neither car put a wheel wrong. Only issue was lack of speed.
/Thanks BoP

Jensaarai: 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?


This one?

We have officially reached *that* part of the race.

That is awesome. Really,really sweet. Went to Le Mans as a part of the Porsche GT1 program in the late 90's. the Germans suck in the respect of fun.

50 hookers armed with bags of coke, German efficiency chokes it down to 15 whores, one nickle bag.
 
2014-06-14 09:00:29 PM
Zomg I love this race.
 
2014-06-14 09:04:44 PM
No FS2 here. Stuck watching the trucks.

At least I'll get to watch the early am fun.
