 I wish ghosts were real. Because we need Steve McQueen now more than ever.

I ride a motorcycle that, if not properly handled, will have you changing your pants five times per day. And that's assuming you know what you're doing. But I'll never, ever be as cool as McQueen. I mean, dude finished 2nd at Sebring and he was an ACTOR.

Thank god someone remembered because it certainly slipped my mind it was rescheduled to this weekend.  Also, the weather forecast looks good for viewers with rain in the forecast building in the afternoon with thundershowers to a higher chance of steady rain overnight Saturday into Sunday.

This year feels a bit like a placeholder until the new regs finish shaking out.  Still, it's an epic endurance race, and unlike the summer there will be significant darkness, so that will be interesting.

They asked if I wanted to come, I said hell yes!

extra hours of night for the commentators to get silly, too bad there are no fans to accentuate the silliness

But with added JPM for extra silliness. But no Jet Dryers.

They really ought to have postponed the race until daylight savings time ends in Europe so they could have an extra hour of racing. Might as well go all the way and have the 25 hrs of LeMans.

hope that pilot retracts his tail hook before landing

There will be an endurance race that does do that: this year's 24 Hours of Spa.

I'm listening to Radio Le Mans while watching the race on Motor Trend, RLM is slightly ahead of TV. I heard the crash about 5-6 seconds before seeing it.

Yeah, I realized that. This whole year has been taxing. 2019 feels like 3 years ago. I asked a friend of mine last night and he said 2pm, that's why it was in my head.

So if you're not listening to Radio Le Mans, they're saying there's a chance of storms from 10pm local time, about a third of the way through. And the storms overnight could be quite heavy.

Off topic, but motorsport related. In MotoGP, Andrea Dovizioso is currently out of a ride for next year after breaking off his his negotiations with Ducati. He changed his usual "Unadaunted" on his leathers to "Unemployed" to this weekend.
