Well yeah... now they're exhausted and confused from running those two sprints. These are the glorious hours when we run around in circles like short bus children, laughing a joyous laugh as we faceplant into the drool covered floor.

I'm an optimist.

nah the sun is up, adrenaline can carry you to the flag, then you need to be peeled of the tarmac to see where you finished

Barring a disaster, I'm pretty sure the winner is settled.

Well, Audi #2 just got pulled into the garage and the bakc popped off...

Gorgeous morning over there. I love France. Every summer I end up looking at real estate costs after watching this and the Tour de France. Spoiler alert... that won't happen.
 
2014-06-15 01:00:04 AM
And Audi #2 is back in. Might have just been a scheduled service.

...wait, it just stalled trying to leave the pits.

holy crap. If Mark Weber cycles to the front through attrition, will his first words in victory lane be "fark YOU SEB!!!!"

Just asking questions here.

I think it would be "I'm going to Indianapolis next year!"

I would pitch in big time to crowd fund that.

Was that the one that went careening around the Porsche curves?

Ferrari crashed hard into a barrier bounced off, went across the track. Driver got out of the car. And now a safety car.

Yeah, or well if that's the one responsible for the current issues then yeah

Yeah it is.

Also it's a bummer Chevy doesn't want to put together a hybrid powerplant so they could make a version of the Corvette Daytona Prototype for Le Mans.

Am I the only one that thinks those huge dorsal fins on the LMP-1 cars really don't add to the good looks?

keeps them from flipping if they go sideways at high speed, teams who didn't like them said they had data to prove it made them more likely to flip, i remember it being contested when introduced

Huh, I thought it was an aero thing to break up the air as it goes over the car to slow it down on the straights.

I'm plastered. I subbed the thread roughly 20+hrs ago.

I'm happy that I have HD till 7:30am.

Hopefully I make it. Luckily my GF's birthday ended 2 hours and 20mins ago. Distractions...Meh.
 
2014-06-15 02:20:56 AM
Holy shiat. They just showed the Audi LMP1 in the pits up close. Beautiful. Honestly. When I was a kid that's the kind of car I thought we would all be driving in "the future"...

If you missed it, I mentioned it's too bad Chevy doesn't develop a hybrid engine package so they could make a version of the corvette Daytona Prototype for Le Mans.

I remember sitting in a 962 when I was 10yo. It made me the asshole I am.

"R18 Tail fin - working with the chamfered underfloor, the fin creates high pressure above the car to prevent blowovers when the car's sideways"

"still very understeering", such bad handling, much irritation, wow

That's what Le Mans needs, a Doge car.

My Weeners was about the super up close, ultra hi def shots that we didn't have even a few years ago. Tight shots on crazy angles makes me think "FUTURE!!!!" and "HAUL ASS!!!!"

Moving past buzzed....

I was watching MotoGP practice yesterday morning and some of the close angle slow mo shots they have are just insane. Also the cameras mounted behind the seat that register lean angle are awesome.

Looks like I got some catching up to do
 
2014-06-15 03:01:57 AM
I'm about to quit on y'all for a bit. Maybe not, good racing on tv. shiat.
 
2014-06-15 03:08:09 AM
And if you ever want to watch something insane, MotoGP is it. It's not just that they get a knee sliding on the track in turns, they get an elbow down.

I know. MotoGP through the corkscrew is amazing. Slam your left, then right, then left elbow against the tarmac. I already miss it. Noone can tell me Indy has better bike racing than Seca.
