I thought it would be nice to have a designated thread for Le Mans on-track discussion, as with previous years.

Looking forward to tonight's second round of qualifying.

It should be good as long as there are no red flags

Hopefully we get a full practice session now without Reds but I very much doubt it!

I do think we have seen the fast times set though for the weekend. Might as well say well done to the #2 Audi

I'm a little sad this year as I won't get to see a lot of racing as the sky package we have doesn't have Eurosport on it so won't see the late on stuff however I should see some action. Oh and come on Signatech Alpine!!!! (bet you all knew i'd be backing that team) Laughing franceflag

I didn't know there was a sky package without Eurosport. Eurosport player, it's about £5 a month?? And there's always radio Le Mans, it's like pictures but in your head not on your tv.


Last years toyota was an f1 with extra body work and this years is more a proper p1 car, it's a little slower but should be a lot stronger.

Yes I do there is nothing more annoying than a bloody Red flag just as things start to get interesting!

Less of the Bruce as well Wink

At least on TV, it was very difficult to see the extent of the damp sections on TV. It has been very strange to see so many crashes.

I guess rain is relatively infrequent for Le Mans, and many of the inexperienced drivers were probably worried about dry running, let alone damp running and a “green” track.

The Toyota sounds excellent on-board – what a screamer. In contrast, the Audi predictably sounds crap.

I think the LMP1 Porsche may sound similar to the Toyota, if the 918 Spyder is anything to go by.

Le Mans looking very good for the start of the race. Hoping for a good race and no cars turning over this year

Anyone see the full lap in-car with McNish that was just on Eurosport, worth checking out, Alan is watching on screen & talking though the lap.

if it comes on YT i'll link it.
