    The sarcasm is lost on this one.

    This. So much this. Sums up everything I wanted to say. After the BoP debacle last year it was great to see GTE back up to full strength and at one point the top 4 in GTE-Pro was separated by less than a minute.

    I thought those were BOP jokes (lets face it without BOP Ferrari would've won last year too).

    Thank god, I hated knowing I would miss half the race last year :)

    Le Mans 2014 was won not by the team who wanted to win the most, but by who wanted to lose the least. Congratulations to the Audi squad for keeping the domination going one year longer.

    Actually those were all jokes about the amateur drivers in the Ferraris. But I don't think that even one of them can imagine how much pressure those guys have to deal with, specially here in Le Mans.

    The only way Toyota is going to win this thing is if they come up with their own evil genius boss man. Who shall out-villain Dr. Ulrich?

    Ferrari or Vette. Both were handicapped quite a bit while the Aston got plenty of breaks .

    Pro tip: You are not forced to like my sarcasm, but you should also not consider my sarcasm as serious.

    So, on a more serious note let me say "they just won Le Mans GTE Pro with a 470hp machine.
    I can't even imagine next year."

    Can I say that or it's against the AUP?

    That's why I was talking about Toyota, not Audi. Obviously.

    Well folks, it was great watching the big one once again alongside you all here on GTP. I'm off now to rejoin the real world. Great respect goes to every team who finished the 24 Hours, as Porsche proved that is tough enough in itself let alone winning it! Honourable mentions go to Rebellion, Ligier, and Corvette for excellent runs in their classes and netting good results. And huge respect to all the winners - Audi, JOTA, AF Corse and AMR (The Dane Train, all the feels!).

    This was IMO the best Le Mans in recent memory. I can't remember a more competitive and dramatic race. And with more joining LMP1 next year I'm excited for it already!

    Thanks all, hope to see some of you back next week for Nurb 24 Hours :)

    No...the casual know-it-all (ironically doesn't know enough) HKS racer was making claims earlier that the BoP handicapped Ferrari, and if they lost this race it would be due to being cheated like last year. Now he's making claims that the Ferrari will be handicapped again for next year due to winning this year...

    Hence the image. Also you have no idea what some of these people do for a living and to equate them (and me) to nothing more than video game playing, and some what race fans is quite daft. You blaming an entire group on the efforts of one moron and letting emotions play a role on the internet is also entirely sad. Calm down.

    I just say it's arguable some people think it's worth some don't.
    I think Audi who just won Le Mans is using 3 cars for a reason.

    Um so what...the Vette runs the same power and pulled out faster laps on the last two stints than any other car in class. What's your point?

    I never called any names in my posts. But if you feel like I meant you, you have to think about why it's like that.

    I usually hate selfies and the selfie crowd.

    But that guy looks so happy and I can't argue with that...and with his badass driving skills. Selfie away, Andre. You're too ratchet.
