    the race finsihed after some great battles yesterday at 10 pm European time. In both the prototype and the GT class, winner and second were within one lap and less then 10 secs apart at finish. Especially in GT there were three Porsche teams with plenty of European drivers chasing each other as if this was a 90 min event. I especially remember one instance after a yellow when (with 9 hours or so to go!) Lieb in 2nd tried to get past rene Rast in first for lap after lap after lap, never further apart than 1.5 secs, plain brilliant! If anyone finds a good video summary, let me know :)

    I'll do a brief write up and post a few pics later. I was at the track camped just after T3 (the first horseshoe) next to the track. Have some great shots coming out of that corner. It felt very much like a 24 hr sprint race.
