    2019 Le Mans 24 hours

    Sitting here watching the first Qualifying session. Thought it needed a thread.

    Missed the race last year but cannot remember why.


    Just seen the most stupid piece of driving by Rodriguez. Pulling onto the track from a spin the wrong way and collecting Conway. Dangerous and stupid driving. Makes Maldonado look safe

    Anyway who else is watching?

    It's going to be an interesting race, when you non-hybrids lapping quicker round Le Mans than Porsche or Audi did (I accept they aren't there so not developing). Me personally, as with every year, I am looking forward to the GTE-Pro class

    Wow. talk about your bad luck!
    Toyota have revealed how a faulty sensor was behind the controversial error that cost the No 7 TS050 of Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and Jose Maria Lopez victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours, with the team mistakenly replacing the wrong wheel as a result.
    Having led the most famous race in the world for nearly 12 hours consecutively, Lopez looked to have avoided a potential setback when the team identified a deflating tyre, with the Argentine able to make it to the pits without losing much time to the sister No 8 car of Sebastien Buemi, Fernando Alonso and Kazuki Nakajima.
    In an attempt to reduce the time in the pits with just one hour remaining, Toyota elected to change just the punctured tyre, swapping the right-front and sending Lopez on his way as he retained the lead.
    But disaster immediately struck when Lopez reported another puncture on his out-lap, with the No 7 car limping round the 8.3-mile circuit and losing the lead to Nakajima, who went on to take victory and seal a second successive win for the No 8 car despite trailing in second for the bulk of the race.
    Sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry
