    The conspiracy theories RLM threw around in the wake of it were disgusting. They genuinely thought they're faking those punctures to let #8 win.

    It’s leaving a long 11 out of Arnage, and pretty much everywhere else on the way to the pits.

    No way. Even if they were 2sec faster per lap, they're 11 laps from the end, give or take, and 52sec away.

    Until just now we've lasted almost 24hr with only one innocently posted dodgy stream. Please don't ruin it this close to the end by knowingly posting dodgy streams.

    You're right, I keep forgetting how long the laps are since with the amount of speed they look like it takes them about 2 minutes :lol:

    It's safe to say that this isn't the way Corvette Racing imagined their 20th anniversary to be.

    The #7 is now really gaining on the #8.

    Last time by, #8 did 3:24.0.

    #7 did 3:19.7! Lopez is on a mission.

    Predicting that the #7 TS050 catches #8 before the end of the race.

    Oh, he just did it now.

    That throws the conspiracy out the window I think.

    Autosport Live reports that it was a tyre pressure sensor issue that caused the #7 problems. Glad to know that Lopez is flying now.

    #7 might still have to stop though, it's going to be close

    What's the conspiracy theory on the #8 about?

    It's about people wanting to make up drama where there is likely nothing other than racing luck.

    If it wasn't for bad luck the #7 would have no luck at all. Gutted for them as they dominated the race.

    Really rooting hard for the Wynn's Ford GT. Would be a win on debut for a customer Ford GT! And a great way to close out the factory effort as the torch gets passed on

    A bit late, but Bergmeister just went for a final splash and dash. Sounds like #56's second-place finish in GTE AM is secure, however...

    18-second gap between the two Toyotas...

    Which may be less come the finish, if only for a possible “photo finish”.

    Final lap.

    Ditto, gives those of us who will miss the departure of the full factory Fords. that the privateer efforts can hopefully carry that torch on. #85 Looking set now with handy gap over the #56 (touch wood!), superb effort on debut, and they survived the penalty scare, so it's certainly been earned. And the GTE-Pro guys will finish in formation it seems too.

    Yay for Toyota, taking another LeMans win. Still a bit sad Ford couldn't even get podium this year in GTE Pro, but yay the Wynns Ford GT took a win at GTE Am!

    How about that, all 4 GTE Pro Ford GTs finished within positions from each other.

    Congratulations to Toyota, Signatech Alpine, AF Corse and Keating Motorsports for their class victories this year. 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th can't be a bad send-off for the factory Fords, either.
