    So was that definitely a safety car mistake that's handed the race to the Rast/Frijns Audi?

    Seems like Mother Nature mostly won the 2019 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. Congratulations to whomever won overall and in classes from this year's race. It was great to follow this race as much as I could online.

Had a Great time. Sunday morning I woke up with the rain pooring down on our tent. We noticed that the race was red flagged.

    Because all things were sobbing , we decided to go home to see Max win the German gp.

    Looks like you had a good time. I was there Thursday through Sunday and we really had to put up with every weather condition except snow. It was an amazing time though. I camped by at Ster by Eau Rouge, looks like you guys were somewhere else. 20190726_202212.jpg 20190726_202707.jpg 20190726_212300.jpg 20190727_225631.jpg 20190725_110403.jpg 20190727_184703.jpg

    Sure we had a good time. Everytime at any track = good time :)

    When we arrived Friday around 1800, the campsites at Ster, were full. We headed for La source and down the road there are many campsites. Ours even had a proper toilet and shower. All for 55 Euro's for 3 days.

    Hey guys!

    Some images from Thursday at Circuit Zolder, the 24 hour race starts tomorrow!
    Paul Truswell was walking around in the pitlane, but I didn't dare to have a chat with him for some reason.

    The race is available in the US without a VPN. I'm watching it on regular Youtube.

    I’m not sure whether it’s an error or not but in the US the YouTube stream from GT World is working without VPN

    It’s not an error, unless you live in Japan. That’s the only place it’s geo-blocked to my understanding.

    Seeing Suzuka at night is going to be a little strange.

    Thanks for the links as I don't watch the European series but did attend the American series at Watkins Glen last week. They also had the new Saleen S1 cup series there. Saleen's plans are a GT4 entry with the S1 next year.

    I hadn't heard about the S1 until we saw it on the track and tried guessing what it is. It looks like a Toyota Celica from the front, a Mitsubishi 3000 in the rear and a Porsche 911/Cayman form the side. :confused:
    Saleen is going through the homoligation process, they basically need to make more of them. A couple shots form Watkins Glen.

    I agree it's cool looking and I also think better looking than the Saleen. Low to the ground too.

    That Fuji race is the first I've seen with the stationary cameras, a bit weird at first.

    Might have something to do with the size of the event. Super Taikyu used to broadcast with the fixed security type cameras. Now, those races are more televised.
