2016 Le Mans 24 Hours Thread
I know its early but this is only 3 weeks away.

Reliability is going to be the key I think. With teams running less cars it's going to be more about attrition than normal. Obviously work has been done since, but the Spa 6hr saw a lot of problems for all teams. All it takes is for one crash like the Audi/Toyota incident in 2014 and the race is wide open. Hindhaugh was even asking the question whether it could be a Rebellion that takes the flag.
Hopefully will be a good race, I'm subscribed to the WEC stream this year so will hopefully have about 4 or 5 screens in one form or another.You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

It was good last year. Although think I had Eurosport on too, possibly because of the commentary. Quality wise it's just like watching the online services from BBC or Eurosport. They also have onboard cameras for a lot of cars and you can sign in to multiple devices. Last year I had it on a laptop (linked to a monitor), a phone and a tablet. The same account was also being used my brother on the other side of the world. The onboard is good, especially if the car is in the pits at night as you can see people working on it.
For viewers in the UK the start and end of the race will be live on Quest, so is available on free to air. They also have some highlights at some pointYou're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

Odds for the race
The prognosis shows that the better odds are on the side of Germany and Japan, that means Porsche, Audi or Toyota.

Annoyingly the official stream doesn't use the Radio Le Mans commentary (which I find baffling because I've always thought that they are superb). Unfortunately that means I'll have a regular battle to sync up the audio stream I've got with the videoYou're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

Use the TuneIn app, and it should be easy to sync up. I have the Eurosport player, and use the non-commentary stream, with the RLM commentary.
I think this is the only forum were Le Mans/ WEC doesn't get much comments....
Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

Yeah I use TuneIn, helpful that Hindy usually does a countdown to the hour to help you sync. Just a bit annoying though.
Strange how ignored LM is on here, and pretty much always has been. Trouble is that I don't really use other forums, find Ten Tenths and Pistonheads have a layout that I don't get on with.You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.
