2017 Le Mans 24 Hours

MBKF1MBKF1 Member Moderator
I know there's a WEC thread, but thought it'd be better to have a dedicated sticky discussion for the race this weekend.

Can't wait. This will be the first time in 6 years I'll be able to watch the start live, and I'm having a mate round to basically have a Le Mans all nighter. Crack open some beers and enjoy a cracking race, hopefully.

Rooting for the Toyota of Buemi / Davidson / Nakajima.

TBH, I'm just rooting for any British drivers, always want them to win, but in particular Davidson. So many times he's come to Le Mans and had it go wrong, this must be his time to finally get the win!

Also, would love the #99 Aston and Ross Gunn to do well. He lives literally just round the corner from me, and is the same age as me too, so I'm really hoping he can get on the podium!

    Watched the qualifying last night and will tonight. Still seems odd not having Audi, there's even talk of Porsche pulling out. LMP1 would be completely ruined if that happens.

    Yeah, LMP1s running out of manufacturers. It would be nice to see other manufacturers return, like Mercedes and Renault. (Although Mercedes are probably still wiping their arses from shitting themselves in 1999)

    Love Le Mans, gonna watch the whole thing again this year. Rooting for Toyota, not having my heart broke again like last year.

    If they don't win it'll be a massive failure.

    I bet as soon as I go to bed something exciting will happen.

    I remember back in 2014 I went to bed when a Toyota was leading. When I woke up that car had retired...

    This is all Mike's fault lol. I bet he went to bed right after his last post.

    At least car #8 is still in the race, really want Buemi and Davidson to win.

    Hah, I'm actually trying to stay up throughout the entire race. I should just keep my mouth shut... :(

    Honda: Man we make the worst engines 

    Toyota: Hold my beer.

    Holy **** ****, this is the most incredible race. Not even half way through, and 4 out of the 5 hybrids have run into massive issues.

    I'm starting to think an LMP2 could actually win this race outright. That would be the most unbelievable story. All it takes is a problem for the #1 Porsche and it could happen!

    Le Mans is utterly ruthless. You can't go into it believing you're going to win, because there's often nothing you can do about it.

    Decided I'm going to sleep soon and then probably wakeup at 7am, so please nothing too exciting happen while I'm away.
