    I have a practice lobby up and going for the entirety of the race for all teams and their drivers to warm up before their stints. It is under the club's page on GT6, so stop on by and prepare yourself!

    Well, that was unexpected. Thanks to @AJ for allowing the last minute driver change. @lorddragonKD was scheduled to race and had joined the lobby, but 10 minutes before the grid formation he lost power as a result of storms in his area.

    Not only was I not expecting to race today (being team manager) but I was not prepared for the wet weather. Apologies to my teammates for the poor showing, and apologies to our competitors for any dramas on track. I tried to be as aware of other cars as possible and to stay well out of eveyone's way.

    Unbeliveable experience being able to make a commentary debut at Le Mans of all places! It was clear I was struggling in areas but I was very nervous! Huge honour to commentate alongside Tom, that certainly didn't help the nerves, I can't wait until the next opportunity!

    I've watched portions of the race so far on the stream.
    Hats off to everyone involved. So much work must go into it from all the different departments. Thank you very much everybody. :tup:

    @Adventuruss sincere apologies if I caused your spin around 02:30 track time (exiting 2nd chicane). I was desperately trying to leave you the right side of the track but the car wouldn't do what the brain wanted it to....... I hope there wasn't any damage.

    I a
    pologize for early in the afternoon today. I was getting off the line to avoid you just in case you had an earlier breaking point. The car spun and that is when I hit you. Truly sorry.

    That's my final stint finished. It has been great fun competing in this and I can't wait to find out the result! The competition has been fierce and very competitive so we've been stepping up to the challenge and hope we've done a good job. All the best to everyone else for the last couple of hours and may the best team win!

    Hour 22 update has Venator's fastest lap as a 3:39. That is definitely incorrect.

    Congratulations to all teams, and especially to the class winners.

    Than you to all the commentators, Stewards and organizers. This was our first 24 hour event and it was AMAZING!!!
