    I wonder if we’ll see a Virtual Le Mans again this year then on the original date.

    Looks like 2 weeks after Road America and 3 weeks before Laguna for the IMSA guys. Seems it gives those teams invited some more flexibility than before where the original June dates were a week after Detroit.

    Same...

    Had the June date off as well.

    To be honest it's 2022 onwards when the real competition at the front heats up, so not the worst edition of Le Mans to mostly miss.

    Not to my recollection, but it's a blue Rebellion R13.

    I guess this means more night racing than normal.

    Sub to the race via the WEC web or App and watch it 100% add free. (Once the initial I can't get the stream to play bit is out of the way that is). It will then get put on YouTube. Use your downloader of choice and you've got a copy you can keep.
