    Default 2014 Le Mans 24h thread

    Not sure how Track HQ has no LM24 thread already and we're 4 hours into the race

    LMP1 is a battle of titans this year, between Porsche's return with the 919 Hybrid, Audi's team Joest as strong as ever despite Loic Duval having a terrible crash in practice and Toyota that qualified P1 and P3 with the stunning TS040 Hybrid, you have all the ingredients for some good action.

    As things stand, Toyota is currently in the lead, followed by Porsche and Audi to round up the top three.
    Just before the 2 hours mark, a GT car gave one of the Toyotas a good shove in the rain, sending it spinning into the barrier, ricocheting back into one of the AF corse Ferraris which then took out the #3 Audi.
    The Toyota was the only one that was able to limp back into the garage, the other two were retired.

    And speaking of retirements, first car out was the garage 56 entry, the Nissan Zeod which barely ran an hour before gearbox issues took it out of the running.

    GTE Pro is currently lead by the C7R squad with Oli, Tway and fatbillybob just destroying the field. Let us hope that no Miata appears to follow them too closely.
    The Porsche works team is also very strong.

    In GTE Am, the all American driver lineup of Dempsey Racing was leading when Patrick Long was behind the wheel in the awful conditions. There's a different Patrick behind the wheel right now and they are running 2nd.

    Discuss.

    I hate those close following Miatas. They scare me and cause me to start complaining hysterically at download meetings. It must be a reaction from wearing too much gold and polyester... then again, any red blooded American car driver will get pretty nervous standing too closely in front of an agressive Miata driver.

    The C7R on board cams are great. I just watched the #73 battle with a Porsche and finally pass by tracking out very wide at turn 17(?)

    Webber behind the wheel in the P1 Porsche.
    Did I miss the part where they said what was the issue with the car? Hartley was putting downsome wicked laps and all of a sudden lost pace. Currently in 4th.

    They are switching the TV coverage from Fox Sports 1 to Fox Sports 2 at 1:00 p.m. PDT. I have Verizon Fios. I get Fox Sports 1 in HD, but only get Fox Sports 2 on non-HD. Bummer, crappy picture . . . Then at 1:30, they are switching again to Fox Sports Go -- I don't think I get that channel at all. Why is American TV so anti-car racing? 24 LeMans is perhaps the greatest car race in the world.

    My brother calling strategy for Dempsey GTE-AM #77 Dempsey. He was at Buttonwillow Nasa race last weekend, now slumming it at Circuit de la sarthe!

    They got ahead in mixed conditions by not pitting for Rains and P long hanging on! Lead for a couple of hours...

    Just watched a driver change in one of the Porsche teams and the new drive reached down in the front of the seat and slid the seat forward, like an production seat... Had no idea that was possible...

    There is a 24h Le Mans app for android and apple and it's free. I'm watching it on my ipad.

    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?
