Time to start a thread about that.

Somehow less exciting this year with smaller LMP1 grid, but still tones of themes to follow.

One of the things to notice are new low downforce LMP2 makes that with the 600hp Gibson engine are doing well over 330kmh on straights (!!!). The GT drivers says that this year it feels like there is 30 LMP1 lapping them all the time.

I am sure there was a good race. Impossible to know following Eurosport. Commercials every 10 minute and they refuse to focus on battles on track. I had no clue at all what was going on following that.  Rather then following the GTE Pro battle at the end it´s better following a limping #8 Coyota or find some guy in the pit lane or audience or whatever instead of booring cars that is actually racing.  I just don´t get it? 

To bad the P2 didn´t win . Hybrid systems is getting to complex for the P1s it seems.

Eurosport was not producing the broadcast. It was done by French TV. They often complain themselves that director was cutting from on track battles to show som art. slow mo of car over kerbs or mechanic scratching himself while asleep.

WEC app was on the same broadcast feed, but thankfully free of commercials.
