For those that don't follow it on the live stream or Eurosport there's coverage of the start and various update programmes on Quest (Sky 144.)

For those that only have terrestrial TV ITV4 are showing the last few hours of the race 'live' tomorrow from 09.30 to 14.45.

But then I'd have missed out on the bucket list item of hooning alongside a well driven and up for some fun 911R driver...



.....on the way down........ Dont know

Stunning weather btw and just enjoyed a scrappy but fun Carrera Cup race.



First time at Le Mans ( Surprised ) but absolutely loving it so far thumbsup

Both Toyotas out so with 3hrs 20 mins remaining it looks like a Porsche win.

After what happened to Toyota last year the above is said with fingers well and truly crossed.

The second car lost an hour with front axle problems but is still running 4th overall and 2nd in class.

UNBELIEVABLE.

In the time it took me to make a coffee and type the above the Porsche dream was shattered !!!!!!!!!!

Call me Jonah.

The second Porsche is now 2nd overall and 2 laps down chasing an LMP2 car.

Should be a great last 3 hours.

2 hours 10 minutes to go and the 919 has unlapped itself.

A straight race to the finish now.

Go Go Timo Smile

ps. Correction to earlier. One Toyota is still running but well out of contention for race win. 2nd in class though so great points for the WEC.

Likely last pit stop before a final charge to try and snatch overall victory.



Currently reigning in the Jackie Chan Oreca at 11 Seconds a lap. Meaning it could come down to the last lap. Star Wars Amazing stuff!! thumbsup
