As I understand it cleaning the screen and doing up the drivers belts do not count as "working on the car". Fanning the interior with the door? scratch study

the adverts they have when doing the Le mans are ok to be honest (even though i hate adverts) they are very short are normally quite relevant to the race basically they are just i-dents, if ITV had done this with F1 it wouldn't have been so bad, a 3-4 minute advert brake is rubbish !

yeah, that had to do the full 24 hour live after Motors TV did it when they had the rights, because when Eurosport had it before them it was just the start & finish for a few hours & then the rest of the time it was half a hour or a full hour here & there.

lucky to get 24 hour live coverage really.

maybe a record distance, they may try & go for it as the new rules will make sure it won't be beaten for a very long time Sad
