    I think Nissan will run one car ultra conservative, just to quiet the naysayers. Run the other car as fast as they think they can without blowing, knowing it's gonna blow anyway. At least that's what I would do.

    Meanwhile, I'm rooting for Toyota, knowing they'll get their asses kicked.

    I am willing to bet Nissan even running ultra conservative, will still break.

    Will Nissan get passed by LMP2 car ?

    So, the #23 Nissan (the faster one between the two) is currently showing behind just 1 P2 car which is powered by a Nissan engine.
    Do you think that it makes them feel better or worse

    This will be a great year. Overall lap time record (with chicanes) has just been beaten. Porsche is kicking butt in free practice, Audi should be close on race pace. Nissan will explode. GT cars are all very close since they´ve been BOPed the hell out. Toyota seems hopeless, but anything can happen in LeMans, specially with the giant speed difference, rookie drivers trained not to use their mirrors, rain, and increasing complexity of the flux capacitors.

    Dailymotion says they have a 24 hour coverage in HD for the race, also have onboards of around 10 cars:

    24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 Live Videos - Dailymotion

    For cable TV, Fox is really bad this year, looks like I have to keep switch between FS1, FS2 & FS Go.

    I'm going to try the Dailymotion streaming & use a chromecast to cast directly to my TV.

    Is there some low level race situation mere mortals can do to race Lemans? Maybe something like a Pirelli World Challenge kind of level?

    Nope, the "low level" is GTE cars.

    Hmmmm...come think of it, my wife's best friend recently moved to Paris for work. I *should* push LeMans up my list in guise of a) visiting Europe with my wife (she wants to go badly) and b) a Paris base of ops gives her time alone with her friend and me time to go to the race. Wins for everyone! Time to brush up on my Quebecois to alienate even more French during my stay.
