Different races and difference scenarios, but I don't think people can say the #8 was holding back, especially in Alonso's night quad-stint.

    LMP2 decided after the race, G-Drive excluded for adjusting their fuel rig to gain about 6-8 seconds per pitstop (mounts up when there are 37 of them). They must be kicking themselves given they could have won on pace alone.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    I find the some of the new EoT rules slightly bizarre; you can't do too many laps, or use too much fuel or you get penalised emi calculator gst login ifsc code - so a lot of strategy has been taken away from the teams.


    However, great to see Toyota finally get a richly deserved win after so many heartbreaks; and good to see a driver like Alonso step out of his comfort zone - and be rewarded. Hopefully, it will encourage more drivers will try other disciplines.


    Finally, it was nice to see the heritage liveried GT-Pro Manthey Porsche pair take a 1-2. A great idea, and a nod to their past; The Pink Pig (aka The Truffle Hunter) and the Rothmans car.
    got to be a stop/go for the #8 for wheels spinning off the jacks. Toyota are really wanting to screw Alonso over right
