It got to 20:55 and I was getting worried Eurosport would miss the start, So I've gone online to watch it and it's already half hour gone Evil or Very Mad

Indeed Steven, why didn't Eurosport show the start???? Must be the most bizzare race coverage I've seen, then they will only show about 2 hours tomorrow. They may have well not bothered. Rolling Eyes

Its been a superb race so far, the racing is like a touring car race. Scott Dixon has been brilliant, I'm not a fan of him, but boy he can drive. He just drives around the outside of anybody. Hope the Number 2 car wins. To my surprise, the BMW M6 is doing okay, it overtook a Porsche 997 with ease on the banking.

I love all these safety car periods. lol! w00t I want at least 30 safety car periods in this race.

Are they? Both men sound like they know barley anything about Grand-Am, especially Haven. Both generally seem clueless about the entrants. Hindy even got confused the Krone Ford with one of the orange DP's.

Its like: "errr yes, here is the errr. Ah, Wayne Talor car". You can tell both commentators don't follow Grand-Am. The Eurosport coverage is unbelievably bad, I swear they have more ad breaks then Speed? I'm watching Speed coverage now and they are not as frequent as Eurosport's. Then to make it worse, all the Eurosport ad breaks are all the same. At least Speed's ads are change on each ad break.

The conditions look really, really tricky. I love the way that the cars are so close and are bashing body panels, its one exciting endurance race. Smile

i love the look of the cars. the mazda RX-8 is growing on me i am starting to like it.

Love the sound of that Camaro, proper V8 grunt. Cool

Hindy knows his stuff about ALMS, LMS and Le Mans. But as far as commentating and his interests go, Grand-Am doesn't really feature very highly because radio le mans doesn't follow it very closely. Hence why he sounds a bit miffed commentating on Grand-Am.

yeah. I think Radio le mans should start covering this race. they could easily do it like the N24 race stop at certin time and continue it later on. speed has 2hours 45minutes left i think. then back 7am eastern time

Bad news for 02 fans

Fantastic safety car period, loving it.

That Porsche What a Face

Such a shame that the engine blew on the 02 car, oh well, its called BMW but its mainly made by Dinan - an American company - its all there fault.

This really is my favourite sportscar series, you have such a variety of cars, but such great touring car style racing.

The attrition rate is alarmingly high, drivers seem to be crashing on a frequent basis. 16th safety car period. w00t crashing

This race is far from over...
