    D.Vanthoor doesn't need to push too hard - the #4 Team Phoenix Audi is still in a very comfortable position right now.

    That being said, Estre is not giving up...

    still hovering around 40 seconds, both of them will have one more lap.

    Edit: and the zombie Manta heads back out to do it's showoff lap.

    I think Estre has given up, I saw someone overtake the Porsche.

    1. Audi
    2. Porsche
    3. Mercedes

    Subaru wins SP3T. :):tup:

    #33 BMW ended up 7th overall. Better then what happened to every other M6. :(

    #3 Mercedes has been demoted from 3rd place! Apparently, it entered the pits just before the checkered!

    EDIT: Timing has been reset. #3 Mercedes keeps 3rd place overall.

    The #3 Merc drove backwards from the car park in the GP track cutoff and drove into the pit lane right in front of the Vanthoor Audi, that must have screwed up timing. Put back into 3rd.

    Enjoyable race apart from all the horrible things that happened to the BMW's.

    Thanks to everyone for keeping the thread awake. Now its my time to get some rest until the next 24h race... Daytona 2020. :p

    Bye bye and get some rest too.

    What a race!! I was rooting for Glickenhaus. They had the pace to win, but that pitstop to fix the front dropped them 2 laps. Anyway, Audi really deserved the victory.

    Two 24 hour races in a row, both had dominant cars, neither one won the race, that's racing for you.

    Gave it a "like" because I know you're talking about GTE in Le Mans and you obviously didn't consider LMP1 a race ;).

    What do you mean? :confused:

    Still feeling the effects of staying up all night, so sorry if I don't get what you are saying.

    My favorite race of the year. Seeing cars go through the Nordschleife is hypnotizing, can't get enough of it. I just wish there was a category above GT3 to make it even more exciting.

    They already had to slow down the GT3 cars for safety, highly doubt they would run anything faster.
