I'm quite a few beers in watching at home. Had a nice evening so far, some mates round, bit of time on the rig, takeaway curry, cigars. Good times. Everyone has gone home / gone to bed now, so I'm settling down to stay awake for the next 13 or so hours...

No pictures, its best for everyone. But I'm here, home in Finland and watch LMans from Eurosport 1, Finnish announcers went on night break at 24.00 and they're back at 08.00, so it's english studio now.

Thinking that I try to watch whole race, some bratwurst/eggs(not everytime) and coffee every few hours, lets see how it goes. Otherwise I'm on summer holiday now, back to work on July 8(but other holiday later in August).

How's it going folks?

Still going strong here! 2.36am in the UK, feeling half fresh still and looking forward to the next 11hr 24 mins of racing!

Been a chuffing epic race so far I think - fights everywhere and I must say kudos to the commentators on Eurosport.. as always bang on job, entertaining and sometimes irrelevant chat, but loving every second. Hydrogen car chat very interesting indeed..

Anyway back to the racing - LE MANS IS AWESOME!

Hope everyone is enjoying the racing?

"Quite a few beers in" and "stay awake for the next 13 hours" is usually mutually exclusive for me! Anyone want to bet he's asleep on the couch by now??? :D

My thoughts echo yours Paul

I must admit the 2 older fellas commentating on this stint tend to waffle alot more, and id like to see them stay onboard a little longer than they seem to be doing with the camera work, but so far so good

I dont remember this many yellows and crash outs last year but its made for some great viewing.

EDIT. Kudos to them for mentioning the ford vs ferrari film. That and joker are the only two films im looking forward to this year.

I liked the chat about the Hydrogen technology, got me to look up the LMP3. Pretty cool stuff.

hahaha

It's a bit much to hope PM can hold it together long enough to stay on track for an endurance race!

Still up.. dropped off about 5am for almost an hour, but back in the game now and raring to go (ok not raring maybe, I'm seriously tired now)!

Well Le Mans comes once a year and I was all excited to watch, and a tornado touches down 0.6 miles (just under 1 km) from my house and I’ve been without power for going on 7 hours now. It’s hard not to feel like it was a personal attack on me at this point :D

LMP1 feels like a joke with 8 contenders.
