Yeah TK just had a wheel of the track on turn in to Tetre Rouge so span off into the barrier - didn't look too badly damaged.

Good job by Audi but the diesels are very close 0.5s between all six factory cars it's going to be a fantastic race - odd to see the Oreca 908 so much further back after Sebring

I couldnít do a better job, but Martin Havenís commentary pisses me off. He speaks as if heís a professional racing driver, in reality he speaks out of his backside when he tries to describe what a real driver experiences.

And Mark Cole, yikes, he has all the charisma of a cabbage. Eurosportís commentary team are largely dreary sounding and full of bullshit.

He's not Marino Franchitti or Jonny Mowlem though, he's not an actual driver. He sounds like an over excited teenager at times too. Turning into Carlton Kirby slowly.

Its hard to judge Peugeot's real pace, seems as if they had traffic on each of their hot laps on Thursday.

Bloody proud of BMW, they are whipping Ferrari's, Porsche's etc asses. Just shows if you want to drive the best sportscar, it has to be a BMW M3.

SIR! Will know this, whats the safety car then? I thought i'd get that out of the way now before the racing gets going.

I hope i'm not left disapointed again this year by Peugeot, hope they have the pace and the reliability to keep going

Audi RS5 is the safety car, with S4 Avant's as Medical Car's.

Oh very nice, they'll be White I assume. You'd think they'd have a lovely French car wouldn't you like a Renault Espace or something Laughing but no those Audis are great really

An Espace would be like a slug trundling along. Razz Laughing

Renault don't make anything fast enough to allow the drivers to retain good heat in the brakes. I know the RS5 will be the lead safety car, but with three safety cars the other two could be different.

Time for race day!

pace is close. going to be interesting might come down to Reliability.

P2 should be interesting, i wonder if the HPD car can do it.

GTE Pro- no idea! i wonder if the 458 has the Reliability for 24hours?


AUDI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! germanyflag germanyflag germanyflag germanyflag

Skoda are on pole but lets see how the race develops.

Hope the Ferrari 458's have blown engines, less competition for BMW the better.

Cannot wait for the race, hopefully there are multiple safety cars and red flags. Red Flag is the new fashion, I wanna see more of them.

Skoda on Pole more like Quailty Audi.

GTE Pro is very close. BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Porsche.....going to be close!

Skoda/Audi/VW/Seat - all the same thing. Almost identical cars underneath but different badges.

I'm thinking the M3 should be reliable over the whole distance, the car has been faultless at the Nurburgring 24 Hour race - an even tougher track than La Sarthe. Anything can happen, but the 458 hasn't had much running in comparison.

it will be a hard pace in GTE Pro and you can't forget anything can happen! I think 458 will be strong, i don't think Ferrari would roll a product and not be good..... we will see!
