« on: June 11, 2019, 12:51:14 PM »
Just a quick note as a reminder that le Mans is on this weekend ,and Ferrari has quite a show
2 in the GT pro and 8 or so in  the GT am so it really is Ford versus the rest, this weekend
shame the movie did not come out at the same time

Well who watched Ferrari take out GTE Pro for the 70th anniversary of their first win?
and can anyone explain the Ford in  GT am not doing his 10 sec penalty stop and then repeating the same mistake and not getting a penalty and THEN getting help from other teams to change his front end ?
the Porsche should have won that

ok update the cheating Ford has been disqualified'
So Ferrari 1st in GT pro
and 2nd and 3rd in GT AM
Very poor performance by the GT overall the corvette being its natural rival had it all over it,
and the only  car to rival the Ferrari in the PRO race.

I love following the 24 Heures through online timing.  Before each race we watch the opening sequence from the Steve McQueen movie as a prologue.  Pity that the limited free-to-air television coverage we once had (briefly) has gone, and the amazing multichannel live online feeds are now so diminished -- or require payment.

Always look forward to the Corvettes (with their own corner!).  What other series do they race in?  They have a tradition of being at La Sarthe.
