    Audi and Porsche need to return to LMP1 someday. I wonder who will win Toyota or Toyota, I guess in fairness they do race each other pretty hard.

    Audi and Porsche have not yet announced anything about their return in top class at Le Mans, but there are some exciting news about the LMHypercar class debuting in 2021.

    We know already that alongside Toyota, Glickenhaus and ByKolles will enter the Hypercar in 2021, for a 5 years engagement.
    For sure Peugeot Sport is working on an Hypercar to enter the class in 2022.
    Ferrari is claiming being very interrested in the new regulations and is studying with AFCorse the possibility to enter in 2022 aswell.

    Le Mans is about to start and what does Eurosport show? Some pointless tennis. :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    That sucks, they took access to the WEC stream away from us here in the states, but my cable system has Motor Trend and they are giving us the Eurosport feed, full race this year :tup:

    I presume its on their site, Eurosport UK has the race on one channel and TDF on the other.

    It'd be nice to see McLaren in Hypercar, but it's very unlikely in the near future, because of their economic troubles.
    And they've not been showing any obvious interrest in the coming WEC regulations actually.

    Apparently Hulu has Motortrend in their live package so I can actually watch this year!

    They have actually shown interest in a global DPi class though, which is essentially what LMDh will be. Granted that was pre-Covid so who knows if any interest still exists.

    Amazingly I get the entire race broadcast on live TV free on Motortrend channel. It reminds me of the old days with SPEED TV. Its not broken into different channels and gaps in the broadcast if its even on TV, and no stream only like years past. Just lounging on the couch watching on the 70".
    Anyone from USA need to watch check Motortrend, its channel 412 for me on Xfinity.

    Lucky you. I have to suffer constant online casino adds on Eurosport. In addition of missing the start of the race because of some pointless tennis match.

    Nearly an hour gone and the ByKolles is still going. Best result in years.

    I really hope they finish, I don't really care where but they deserve it just from perseverance.

    The Porsches seem to have the same troubles Aston Martin did last year. They're both dragging up the rear of GTE Pro. I think I heard they had weight added to them.
