6 hours of Spa-Francorchamps  May 2nd    

24 Heures du Mans  June 13-14th

6 hours of Nurburgring August 30th

6 hours of Circuit of Americas  September 19th

6 hours of Fuji  October 11th

The race is tomorrow? But a great job by the Porsche's, they're looking really good this season.

Yup, I just saw on the WEC site it's on 15:30 here so I guess it's 13:30 for you guys?

Great race! Not sure how many of you watched it but the battle for 1st place with a couple of hours to go was great. Some quality overtakes and Le Mans should be epic.

Watch this video and put on the automatic captions, they're quite funny :p

A lot of good ones such as:
Audi and Porsche | anti-abortion
Kevin Estre | Kevin ashtray
ELMS | pls
The Porsche's pushed | the porch is pushed
Into La Source to take the lead | nice almost to take the ladies
Kemmel Straight | Cattle straight
Managing | mother Jean
Gimi Bruni | Jimmy brainy
A tyre got loose | attire got lace
Two and a bit stints | to at the pit stains

As Matt said, a cracking race! So many people had reliability issues out of nowhere, if that was a 24 hours race there would be more chances an LMP2 car would win :p

For a second I thought we're going to have a head-to-head duel for 1st in the final hour, but sadly that was not the case. Amazing race to watch though. Really glad they opened the new racing channel this weekend.

Was a good race at Spa, team Audi proved by running longer before their final stop that they were guaranteed first over there nearest rival Porsche who short stinted.

Sorry it's taken so long to get some photos up from when I went to Silverstone, but here's some images!











This last one is a blend of the Audi, Porsche and Toyota, just a little experiment.

I'll be honest, the Toyota looks better on track than the pictures make it out to be. I don't know what it is about it, it just looks fast :p

Nice one Matt! By the way this year for the first time I'll attempt to watch the entire 24 hours of Le Mans.
