    Interesting to note, considering they didn't have a suitable setup and weren't really able to run one even if they found it, the car improved in race trim by 4 seconds.
    Not really, since its disagreement with the gearbox (which is the main issue) basically means that it wouldn't physically last for any meaningful amount of time - we'd be talking minutes over hours. I'd be surprised if it could even do a lap. As someone said, they knew the cars were broken and there was no quick fix, so they put the effort into the team rather than the car.

    Great pictures all of them. The "Paul Dalla Lana" shot depicts with great realism a truly sad moment. Respect to the track officials for their supportive attitude.

    Superb shots @Roo - glad you weren't flattened at the campsite and made it home in one piece :eek:

    Hey @Roo , any chance you let me use the Viper shot as my GTP avatar (and maybe my Twitter background banner) please?

    You do have to wonder how much more Alonso now wants to go Sports car racing after the comments he was making about the Audi R18 E-Tron last year.

    Sure, go ahead. There's another Viper shot in the 'Piccies' Flickr link.

    One more, because I can:

    So, so close to being a good photo, but just too out of focus to make it. That's just the way things go.

    Personally I think it works great. The DMG Mori logo on the tail fin makes for a good focal point. :tup:

    Turns out it's a programme about Paul Hollywood they were doing and not about the race.

    Must have missed that only found out when my mate texted me about it just now.

    He thinks I should send him
    Some footage but I'm still waiting to be paid for footage that I supplied to national geographic and discovery back in 2006/2007.....

    That's what the like system is for. There's no point bringing back a dead thread for that.
