24 Hours of Lemans

If anyone is a sportscar nut like myself, this IS the race to see let alone listen to. Radio Lemans is broadcasting live from the circuit in France. Go to www.radiolemans.com

Today's 2 sessions of qualifying should be a real cracker. Here is another link that will allow you to watch the lap times live and also has a live Rolex clock with the time in France.
http://www.lemans.org/24heuresdumans...ccueil_gb.html

The great thing about this race is watching it in the early morning hours. When I was there for the 2004 race I was sitting in the grandstands opposite the pits at 3:30 in the morning- nothing like it anywhere! Also bumped into Tom Kristensen for a private chat, and towards the end of the race got invited into the ACO grandstands by an ACO official. It was the most perfect trip of a lifetime. Oh, and who can forget the Hawaiin Tropic girls.

Do I need help? I joined the ACO Thursday so I could have access to the live timing and scoring bar they have.

Peugeot kicking Audi's butt so far. Positions 1,2, and 3. The Peugeot's look a bit "loose" in the tight turns.

12 laps to a tank of diesel. 14 laps to a tank of petrol

The coverage of the race from Radio Lemans is great, but I can't wait for 9pm when Speed TV picks up broadcasting again. Another cool site is www.badboyvettes.com. Check out the video- in car lap of Lemans 2007. Love the sound of the Vettes as they speed past the tribines. Already lost the 85 Spyker to engine failure. The Peugeots are very quick but I don't think they are as tough as the Audis. How good is the coverage when you join the ACO on the home site?

6 seconds between the Audi's and the Peugeot's after 13 hours, surprised the Peugeot's are still in it.

What a great race! My buddy Tom won for the 8th time for Audi North America. It will be great to see the winning team at Lime Rock in July. Pescorolo was the winner for the gas fueled cars and Flying Lizard finished the race after a bad off with another Porsche earlier in the race.
