I thought Alan may've been a gonner. That was horrible. He very nearly went over the wall.

We'll be under safety car for a while. They have to rebuild that wall.

No, I don't think there were any injuries amazingly.

Eurosport is showing cycling here. Probably a replay. I thought they said they were telecasting the whole race. Aparently they'll be showing some athletics before sunrise. Not impressed, Eurosport. :eerie:

Have you seen that tire flying, m-i-r-a-c-l-e that no one was injured, still it's long auto-moto weekend, we'll see how luck and karma are shared.
Listen, it was hard enough to drive those heavy old cars back then under normal circumstances, but with a crazed monkey clawing you at the same time, it becomes nearly impossible! http://www.timflock.com/jocko.htm

Mmmm, 10 hours into the race and we've only got one Audi left. This is like the reverse of what happened last year.

The 88 Felbermayr Porsche only has one headlight. They'll need to fix that.

So we've got an Audi followed by 4 Peugeots leading LMP1. The #41 Greaves Motorsport Zytek Nissan leads LMP2. The #74 Corvette Racing leads the GT cars.

I'm a fan of the #42 Strakka Racing Honda (HPD) LMP2 car. They're 4th in class but they had a big shunt in first qualifying.

Oh, the Ford is still in the race! That's good to see. :yay:

I understand Mike Rockenfeller also walked away from his mother and father of an accident. Amazing.

Well, you hope.

I'm just back from brunch. I'll take this shift. :hihi: 02:50 CET, 10:50am here in the land of Oz.

Good to see the Hybrid car #5 still running albeit second last overall.

Looks like I put the curse on Strakka. They're out.

Half race distance.
