    Good grief!

    No. I obviously did not check the date. Spaced out . . .

    Sorry (and thanks). It is June 17-18, per the revised date and link above.

    Btw: Billy Johnson will be in number 66.

    It is amazing that these cars and their drivers can endure 24 hours at near (literally) breakneck speeds.

    I bought tickets to go hang out at Porsche Experience center for their LeMan party. Saturday 9-9. $45 each.
    I wonder if I would be kicked out if I get too excited if Toyota is doing well ?

    While I am rooting for Toyota. They have the worst strategist of all. Fast lap don't mean crap if they can't control their drivers

    Nah, they said prior to quali that they will break the record.
    Honestly qualifying an LMP1 car for the 24 is mostly for bragging rights, and if that's the objective, than they got it done properly today.
