@LMSCorvetteGT2 Next year Ferrari 458 will be forced to run with 3 wheels.
What a great race!!
Justifies my passion.
Most of the ADAC GT cars race there so Callaway might enter a 'Vette (I haven't seen the entry list though).
Next weekend actually.
Nurb 24 Hours will be fantastic, over 150+ cars entered and GT3 is one of the best classes in racing at the moment. Anyone know if Bentley will be there?
Didn't quite beat the last years thread in lenght but we got close. Unless some of you guys decide to stay behind and discuss the past events.
Actually the 24H Nurburgring is right next weekend.
Also, congrats to Audi. You had to fight for that one. Also big up to JOTA, AF Corse and Aston Martin for their class wins. Great stuff.
Sorry I jinxed the #7 Toyota, but that was easily still one of the best Le Mans in recent memory.
Callaway, please sir don't insult the Vettes (joking here), plus I'd rather go for the usual runners in the SLS or RSR
Is that Saturday-Sunday or have they made it end on Monday so I miss it again?
2015 Ferrari 458 GTE Pro new body kit revealed by ACO.
"Oy, Mark. You left your shrimps on the barbie!"
It's a fairly unimportant point, though. Toyota has the money to increase the budget. They don't because the increased chance to win isn't worth the increased expenses.
They have the same chance as Audi, they just don't take it. And nobody's to blame for that but Toyota's managers. That's the point.
Well, that was a great race, and thankfully very clean and almost devoid of strong accidents, which is always good. A shame the donkey took GT-PRO, though.
Now, back to sleep. 'Morning, gentlemen
Well done to Audi once again for another victory at Le Mans. Vorsprung durch Technik pulls through yet again.
4 more wins for Audi at LeMans and they'll take away the total wins record from Porsche.
Love them or hate them, Audi has their stuff together when building an endurance racer.
Congratulations to Audi.
Can't wait for next year's.
Congratulations to Jota on winning. I never thought that when I saw Sam Hancock and Phil Quaiffe-Hobbs (sp?) in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB they would take on the biggest race in the world and win the class. To AF Corse. Shame it wasn't a 1-2 and shame AMR didn't win to make it a brace in the GT categories, but those Yanks at Corvette are a class act. I can see them doing very well in the remainder of the USCC season and the C7.R is so much better than it's predecessor. And Porsche are also very good indeed. And to the Great Dane's at the #95 Pro-Am AMR car. You drove the best of all consistently.
And to Audi. Take nothing away from them. They are the best at what they do.
What the Mark? That was hilarious! And the mechanics picking up the chair!
Really? Do we even have to make fun about the Ferraris after the race?
After all, those guys get paid year after year for driving race cars, while all you haters sit infront of your computer in a videogame forum.
Saturday-Sunday. They could only do it on monday because of the Pentecost weekend (Pentecost monday is a holiday in parts of Germany).
Did a Carrera Gt just go by on track?
Le Mans Hour Twenty Four:
The Rebellion was now up to fourth overall with their brand new R-One, and Oliver Turvey was now lapping four seconds per lap quicker than the Ligier of Ludovic Badey. Unless the Porsche Team could manage to get a car out within the next five laps, the LMP2 victor would also score fifth overall.
In the closing half hour, it felt as though things were just calming down here at Le Mans… That was usually the thought that triggered drama throughout the race, so it remained to be seen what else could happen before the chequered flag waved.
The Thiriet Ligier had to pit with 22 minutes to go, relieving some pressure off the shoulders of Ollie Turvey and Jota. However, the Zytek also needed a splash and dash before the finish. Turvey made the stop and retained the lead. Out front, the Audi R18’s were running in formation out front, with Treluyer in the #1 leading Kristensen in the #2.
The #14 Porsche was now back out on track, coming our for the final lap. The final lap went off without a hitch, and the #1 Audi of Fassler, Treluyer and Lotterer took the win ahead of Kristensen, Gene and Di Grassi in the #2. The Toyota #8 came third, and in a superb performance, the Rebellion out-lasted some of the quieckest teams to finish fourth.
Oliver Turvey came home to win the LMP2 category for Jota Sport, in an emotional victory for the British squad. Gianmaria Bruni crossed the line in the #51 Ferrari for the GTE PRO win, while the #95, all-Danish GTE AM Aston Martin line-up took a brilliant, emotional and apt victory in memory of Allan Simonsen.
Thank you for reading my updates. After writing out 10,000 words and attempting to keep up with proceedings that long, I am completely out of energy. However, it was truly worth it for all the ups and downs, the plot twists and the triumphs. I will see you all next year!
In case anyone is interested, here's the entry list for the Nürburgring 24 Hours: Link.
Wow. Have you got an issue or something? Ferrari won so I don't get what's wrong with that.
Unless you were blinded by your red shades.
Hey, chill, it's only one hater and we already know better than to take him seriously. Just enjoy the ceremony, mmmkay?
Congrats to Audi but great job Rebellion on a 4th place finish. Great race.
Thank you guys for all of the posts and for a lot of alerts
It's arguable, I don't think Audi would agree with you though.
How many racecar drivers does it take to park an R18
