    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    Spyderidol, is there a good website that gives decent live data / telemetry etc as an aid to viewing?

    I subscribed to the F1 app last year which has a nice tracking and lap data feature, but I found it too hectic to use for an F1 race, but for a 24hr race it would be perfect...

    Thanks to Eurosport HD, i was watching some coverage of Le Mans 2012 last night.

    Also, thanks to ITV4 HD, I have been watching regular highlights programmes on the 2012 DTM season.

    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    Unfortunately, this year it is a very predictable race... Toyota can't be competitive against audi. Gt pro and am will have ferrari 458 winners.

    I am loving the coverage on Eurosport UK ... it's uninterrupted :)

    My spine was tingling as I watched the rolling start ...

    Nothing will touch those Audi R18s ... Toyota is doing a great job but not quite close enough ...

    Sad to see the 911 RSRs outclassed by Aston Martin Vantage V8, Ferrari 458 Italia and even Corvette C6 ZR1 ...

    The Delta Wing Nissan looks a bit unstable under heavy braking ...

    it is the end of the road literally for the 997 based cars. The new racing 911 can't come any sooner.

    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    Guys - I am on chat with the Felbermayr Team : Learnt that the 2012 RSR is slower than the 2011 RSR due to the wider front. They are also racing with smaller restrictors than they are allowed in the ALMS. This partially explains why the GTE-Pro cars are like sitting ducks.

    Either way, it is very sad to see Porsche so slow.

    Lets see if they can take the win in GTE-AM.

    If any one has questions for Felbermayr , I will be happy to ask.


    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    Thanks, mate! No questions right now but good to know. 

    In the meantime... Smiley

    I'm off to bed!  Hope we still have the lead in the GTE Am class when I wake up!

    BTW - I was gone most of the day. When I was watching this morning Toyota was in 3&4.

    I came back later this evening and they had dropped off the map. What happened?

    Also, where is Peugeot and BMW this year?! BMW came back to DTM and they are in ALMS.


    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    So I now I see what happened to one of the Toyotas. Another savage accident involving a P1 car and a Ferrari 458. Who remembers last year:
     

       





       



    This year:


    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    Gearbox problems for #77. Not a good race for Porsche.


    Re: 24Heures Du Mans (16 - 17 June 2012)

    For the 'what were they thinking' file...

    This is the official 56th entry for the race next year, taking the place that the Delta Wing had this year.

    http://www.dailysportscar.com/viewArticle.cfm?articleUID=AEDA9301-1143-FDC9-357D7BA3208E468B

    Sometimes you just have to wonder what goes through the mind of some designers. I mean, the Delta Wing is weird, but this? I don't even know where to begin.
