    I finally "got" the title, thanks to Google translate, well done @Argon! :cheers:

    I started getting a little worried I wouldn't be able to watch the race this weekend, since I don't have cable TV, so I am trying PS Vue for the 5 day free trial w/ Velocity channel which is supposed to be covering the full 24hrs (probably with commercials ugh). Will definitely have Radio Le Mans going for commentary. :tup:

    Our trip there last year with @PASM, @GTP_Dutchy, @Bleached, @GTP_Patrick1 and I was beyond amazing. :drool:

    A pic from 1 year ago today (20170615):

    I have two things on my bucket list that I’m going to do one day! One is to go to the San Siro to see Inter play the Milan derby, the other is to go to Le Mans

    Gave up for a while to watch some football and golf, and drink some wine, turns out red wine helps for this track appropriately!

    I predict that as you get to your third glass you'll enter the zone and knock half a second off :)

    Good prediction...I am pretty much at my limit. My time at the end of sector 6 is very consistent now and my improvement is at the line. The Red Wine helped me improve .4 at the line with a PB in the last sector!! :tup:

    Of course I am shot now after starting with a couple of beers for an appetizer...so I am driving around and running over all of the bollards because it is fun! :lol::lol:

    :cheers:

    Clean laps are like London buses, you wait ages for one and then a load arrive at once. I was about to post my best lap, but it was on the limit, and it being clean would be down to opinion and it was such a pain to check that I ain't gonna post it, I have screenshots below from the checking:

    upload_2018-6-16_11-6-38.jpeg upload_2018-6-16_11-6-51.jpeg upload_2018-6-16_11-7-3.jpeg upload_2018-6-16_11-7-16.jpeg

    I was actually surprised at the lap time that I got on that lap, was nice to see I could go as quick as I actually did. My second best lap was 1.4s slower, here are the splits:

    30.649
    34.434
    28.496
    23.903
    29.241
    29.794

    TC 0, BB +1, ABS Weak

    One of the best times of our lives. When you combine the greatest race of all time with such good friends, you get a time you'll never forget! I'm working through the afternoon today so I'll miss most of the first 8 hours but I should be able to catch the rest. Cheers guys, miss talking to all of you. :cheers:

    @Hasnain282 dude, 2nd and 4th pictures are clean by a mile. Rumble strip is track boundary there. 1st and 3rd are close but definitely clean. That wouldn't have been that hard to check. I would have submitted that lap if it was my best.

    The way I've looked at this week is, if a rumble strip is present I ignore the white line cause their in front of rumbles. If no rumble is present then the white line is track boundary.

    @Argon will correct me if I'm wrong.

    Both correct and just for completeness when the rumble runs out you HAVE to have 2 wheels track side of the white line (solid or dashed). To me that makes picture 3 doubtful but only the replay would confirm or not

    That sounds right to me, only thing that's tricky in places is getting back to the white line before the rumble runs out

    edit: @Argon beat me to it :)

    2nd one is just before the rumble and 4th I need to look at again, cos I did go sorta wide, I do feel I can beat the time though (or at least match it) as there was some mistakes on that lap and will be giving it another go.
    Thanks anyway :cheers:

    3rd one was just after the rumble I think.

    The two wheels can be on the white line? That’s correct isn’t it? I don’t think I’ve cut it close on my replay, but just wanted to clarify
