I'm sure this is posted somewhere else on the forum, but for the GT350 guys - LeMans is about to start. If you have cable, the only channel showing the full race is Velocity TV. You can also watch the live Ford Performance feed on Youtube here:

I don't believe in fate, but as a car guy being born on LeMans weekend has always been special to me, and seeing Ford back in LeMans has given me a certain pride in ownership.

Very cool. :thumbsup: BUT, it really depends what year you were born in, as the dates for Le Mans vary from year to year.

It’s like Rainbow Road in Mario Kart.

been watching on and off since 6:00 a.m. PCT. Needless to say my weekend has not been the most productive. I'll be up early Sunday to watch the last hour. Come on Ford!

Porsche spanked GTE Pro this year, but we did grab a podium spot. Just over 2,900 miles driven in our class.

Yep, both teams had a great showing, and I think more attention in the GTE class now that Porsche and Audi have pulled out of LMP.

It kind of rubbed me the wrong way with the BoP adjustments.

After practice, Porsche was the fastest (1-2) and everyone except Aston and Porsche got a negative BoP. How can you be the fastest and then the rest of the field is penalized?

After qualifying they decided to hit Porsche (10kg) and Ford(8kg) with a negative adjustment.

Also, the 14 lap rule was a joke, how are you supposed to make a strategy on something like?
