OK. Setting my alarm. I'm out.

Yeah, no, it doesn't.

And for anyone who's never seen it

crotchgrabber: I just realized... we are barely over half way and have already topped the total mileage for Monaco, Indy and the Coke 600.


Barring any safety cars, if front runners keep up their pace, each driver will have driven an average of 1070+ miles (~380+ laps total), and some will probably have done 1100 (130 laps, 9-10 stints).

I'm still here...dangling by a c-hair.

Drunk as all get-out.

Thinking of finding someone who doesn't like Italians. Or red Italians cars...

I was weak, I went to bed.  But hooray for the #2 in the lead, despite my pessimism earlier!

Watched Truleyer and Lotterer in FNippon and JGTC/Super GT when I lived over there.  Great to see a couple of guys who were overlooked at home work their way up into the bigtime.

This is the first time in a looooong time that I can remember the P2 division being more robust than P1.  It used to be 'last men standing' in that class.

Grats!

Definitely a fun race. Lots of back and forth drama. I can't wait to see what LMP1 will have to offer in the future if the rumors of more manufacturers jumping in pan out.

Something else just clicked with me....the 3rd place car was the one that was splattered against a barrier in the 1st hour of the race.

I freaking LOVE Le Mans.

And I need to make coffee.

Whoops. Word is the #14 Porsche got itself DQed by running afoul of some minimum average speed reg by going out there and tooling behind the leaders on that final lap.

Wait, what? I had to step away from the broadcast, at present all I see online is video from a helicopter overhead and a text comment saying #14 Porsche finished 11th overall...

IIRC, there's a couple rules in place to prevent cars from parking, getting to a barely drivable state, and limping around for the last five-ten minutes in order to record a finish, or worse yet, stopping just short of the finish line for hours and limping across after the winner. I think the one they ran afoul of requires a maximum lap time of six minutes on their last lap (the #20 shows 7:45, the #14 shows almost an hour and a half).

The #50 Larbre looks to have gotten caught out by this as well.
