No, not directly. Put simply though, he's a GT Gamer like the rest of who previously had really no chance at being where he currently is. I'd say that relates to most of us, wouldn't you?
Damn. That's disaster for Melo's 458 Italia.
Anyone have a link to a stream for the race?
ESPN3 keeps changing quality for me and pausing as it does so.
Can be a bit laggy at times, so i've gone onto the official rest of the world stream.
Did anyone see the Italia's glowing brakes on the Sunset Bend?
I wish I could view the rest of the world stream. Unfortunately I'm in the US.
That I didn't know, and most likely helped him out winning the competition. I know iRacing has their kid who put some laps around a real track and was noted to be naturally skilled at being a racer. I don't recall exactly but one of the training drivers said his first time out he was on pace with the pros.
I'm all for it, but these enduros isn't 1 person winning. It's the team. I stepped out for a few. Checked the ALMS live standings and it seems he's not doing night sessions (not listed as driver). Probably team decision since he's the rookie without experience at night.
I don't think Audi is placing in top 3. Only way would be if the others crash out or have mechanical issues and let the 2 Audis catch up.
If Highcroft wins this I'll get (more) drunk ! Amazing race!!!
^Most likely Peugeot.
I think they'll have to settle for 2nd place. That's still utterly amazing for a team racing in a completely different category than they did last year with a car that's only a week old.
Not only that but a lot of the media were giving them little chance to be competitive with the top of the P1 pack.
They got a little help from certain people taking each other out.
Second in class, 10 laps down on class leading Lola Honda.
Agreed, really hoping they can do it, it's looking very close and exciting at the moment!
Gregor Huttu is a pure sim-racer (doesn't even have a driving licence!), and proof that sim racing can help develop technical skills. That being said, although his times were pretty good, he did have serious problems with g-forces.
Here's a link to a video of his real-life experience
This is true. I saw one of those lil mishaps. Still, impressive though
That's not the point. The point is that they are competing for victory with 2 Peugeots, that are without any doubt the fastest cars out of the LMP1 grid.
Even without the Audi #2 and Peugeot #7 incident, this still would've been a 5-way battle with the Highcroft still involved.
Audi-Peugeot ... this is what people thought Sebring would be about.
Well, it hasn't been.
You never know, the Highcroft could've been taken out.
I would have preferred that. The situation now would be better if Peugeot loses.
It's been like that on the norm where P1 talk is all about Audi vs Pug. I'm glad it's been this way for Sebring24 though.
Granted, this isn't Audis new car.
17' to go!
I also would of Preferred that, if Audi was in front of Peugeot. But now it's pretty close between Simon Pagenaud and the 908 HDi FAP.
Looking at the scoring site.. I'm liking how the Vantage is last place.
Anyone that's done GT5's remote racing knows what I'm talking about.
Go PAGENAUD !
EDIT - Last lap!
Go Team Oreca!
Great finish. Congratulations Oreca
Very exciting race! If the rest of the calender goes like this, it's going to be a good year.
Congrats to the class winners.
Not happy that a Pug won it but since it was Oreca's team, not factory Pug, and seeing the main guy in charge with tears of happiness.. I'm cool with the end.
I really want to know how Audi's new car, R18, is going to do in LMS.
Well done ORECA, well done Highcroft, well done Rahal / BMW team. Great results from all of you! Le Mans will be epic!
