Oh, I discovered yesterday that the WEC has put the LeMans 24 hours for this year on YouTube. Each hour is a separate video.

Thought 'Petit LeMans' might be like the "Little 500"... Disappointed

Glad I attended in person last year. Most uneventful so far.

And in 3 hours Bathurst 1000 starts, guess I will be dual streaming races.

FYI, its hard to find good options for the Bathurst 1000 if you are interested.  It is on twitch at the moment www.twitch.tv/bathurst_1000  It starts in less than 20 after moving up the start because they expect bad weather especially later.

How long do we give it until that feed gets shut down? 45 minutes?

It is tough to say.  Sometimes they are pretty darn good and can last the duration, other times the rights holders are quite aggressive. Fox holds the rights in Australia, but they aren't airing in the US except online.  I think it will last awhile and hopefully other links will pop up.

The 86 nearly spun and caused a pileup. Probably a flat tire

I'm watching.  Petit Le Mans is about 12 miles away and this is all I can view at the moment.

It is amazing how reliable and competitive endurance racing has become.  You can race for hours and hours and still have class leaders swapping positions on the track.  The races have really become long duration sprint races as you can't save much and remain in the hunt.

Number 8 announces a new pope while under caution in the xfinity.  Glad it blew up then than at the start dumping oil and other cars into the wall.

NASCAR and IMSA are run by the same France family. NBC should've said "start the Xfinity race earlier in the day"

Thankfully the safety tech is great now even down at XFinity level, Alfredo was good due to the unfortunate sacrifice of so many drivers before him. I often wonder if things would have gotten so good if NASCAR hadn't lost their superstar.

It was that horrible 12 month period where we lost Adam Petty, Kenny Irwin Jr., and Dale Earnhardt. Dale Earnhardt was the highest profile name, but was the last straw after the sequence of losses due to basil skull fractures.  Earnhardt appeared due to his own stubbornness but the body count at New Hampshire that year showed the need to improve safety measures which thankfully lead to the HANS device as well as safer barriers.

imsa.com should enable the race broadcast at whatever time was agreed to.

But, no.  And they are in commercial and still 8 laps to go and all of the darn commercials and interviews.

They could have switched over to IMSA then during the red flag portion where the car was upside-down also!

Fark the France family and all of the people involved.

They are doing a great job managing the slicks with that wet of a track up top.

I was watching the Xfinity race.  Steve Letart talking 90% of the time made me want to spike ice picks in my ears.

The Mountain is wet, but the fastest parts of the track are dry?

I was watching online through NBC Gold so I had a full screen view of that. The 7 wasn't trying to take the 31 out, but it was an ill-advised move.
