    Weather forecast is pretty dreadful though, so bring your rain gear!

    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    I was invited by P-HQ to go there as well but unfortunately I had a prior commitment which could not wriggle out of...laugh...but I will try to watch as much as possible on TV...the race seems to be shaping up as an epic high-tech high- speed endurance battle between Audi and Porsche, with Toyota not far behind at all.no

    So excited for the race!  Porsche just went 1-2 in qualifying in P1 and 8-10-12 in class in GTE-Pro.  It's crazy how the BoP have favored the Ford GTs so much, though; disappointingly so.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    And, for those of you who hadn't heard/read, Porsche's 919s switched back to their 2015 batteries as they may have seen an issue with the 2016s in testing.  They could've also been a source of their lack of reliability in the first two races.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    It was due to a production issue at the cell factory in Shanghai.

    Porsche is being fed to the wolves in GTE Pro, the works-2016 RSR are 4 sec a lap off the pace, while the top 7 Ford GT and  Ferrari 488 GTE are all within 0.5 sec. 

    Outdated tech and unfavorable BoP. Why bother?


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    ..and in LMP1, the Audi R8 are 3 sec a lap behind the Porsche 919...hard to believe that the R8 have already revealed their full potential.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Audi have not done a low fuel run yet, however, they have other issues.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Thanks, Spyder.  I need to visit the TenTenths forums more often; I know you're a big contributor there.

    It seems that before the race, BOP in GTE  will be revised for Ferrari and Ford...

    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Unprecedented (and embarassing) last minute BoP adjustment during race week in GTE PRO, but just tinkering at the margin, will not have a meaningful impact.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Last year, the GT pole sitter ran a 3:54.9 in qualifying. This year, the Ford GTs and 488s were running 3:55s in practice sessions but ran 3:51s and 3:52s in qualifying, while the rest of the GT field was still running 3:55s, with only a single 911 RSR managing a 3:54.9

    Did anyone else hear the Futch facts? indecision


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Amazing race, I am glued to the tv and ipad since the start


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Futch managed to get back to the pits, seemed brakes replaced and back on his way.
    In the LMP1 class it's a thriller... Porsche ru ning second at about 30 seconds behind toyota....

    Wow, can't believe that Toyota died at the last 5 minutes. Crazy.

    Big win for Ford!


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Amazing. I'm speechless. What a race. What a finale.


    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Sick! We just have seen one of the most memorable moments of the automotive history. Mixed feelings despite Porsche's victory... Toyota deserved this one.

    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    I am here live with Porsche, NO ONE can believe what happened trust me. We were thinking it would take an act of God for Porsche to win. It just happened.

    I'm speechless!
    But Toyota had all the luck throughout the whole race - yellow zones, safety cars, tyres... Until 5 minutes before the end. Drama, real dream!
    But this is endurance racing. Toyota didn't survive, Porsche did!!

    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Soooooo sad
