Watched a chunk of it yesterday up until the Toyota s went out then saw the final five minutes this afternoon while sunbathing at a classic car show.
The wonders of mobile phone technology!

Great race, inicident packed, heart break for Toyota, great GT battle, Mark went the lucky bugger and I really must make the effort next year. Not been since 1995!

The last couple of laps for the Aston and Corvette were great. Real happy the Aston won out after the Corvette short cut two chicanes.

Those Hybrids don't like the heat, only two managed to finish. With 5 hours to go it looked like the No1 Porsche was going to have an easy win, but then it lost oil pressure and couldn't get back to the pits. The No2 Porsche was still 5 or 6 laps down at that point to the new LMP2 leader. The team drove the tyres of the car, and nearly a couple of cars off the track, to eventually take the lead with an hour to go.
