Is this a website? Or are you at Le Mans? If so, do you know of any better tracking sites?

I've been trying to find a better tracking/timing site than the one that the WEC gives you. That one doesn't give sector times or anything like that. I just find it hard to believe that the Nurburgring 24 has a better timing sites than Le Mans does.

I find it funny that Ford calls a 600HP twin turbo 3.5L engine "eco"-anything, b/c that thing is probably nowhere close to being "eco" friendly, ecologically friendly to the environment or economically friendly to my wallet...lol

I don't have Fox Sports 2, so I could only catch it on Fox Sports 1. Just when I turned it off, the announcers got tired of talking, and switched coverage to C7.R onboard, which I could have gotten on separate stream.

What's the problem, they can't talk for 24 hours straight?


edit...in car stream just showed the p-2 Aston try to pass the C7.R and spin out...lol

Nissan like McLaren-Honda this year.
Either hopeless, stuck in garage, or just retire.

If FWD got an advantage, people would've done it already I suppose. Their philosophy needs to be checked again.

Mark Webber: Penalty didn't cause Le Mans 24 Hours defeat


Mark Webber does not believe the penalty his #17 Porsche picked up in the Le Mans 24 Hours played a role in his car missing out on victory.

Webber, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard were in the thick of the lead battle on Saturday evening, but their car dropped away from the fight when they were given a one-mnute stop-go penalty for Hartley going too fast in a 'slow zone' earlier in the race.

Le Mans 24 Hours win 'greatest achievement' - F1's Nico Hulkenberg




Formula 1 driver Nico Hulkenberg believes winning the Le Mans 24 Hours with Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber for Porsche is the greatest achievement of his career.

Hulkenberg, Tandy and Bamber took control of the 2015 race during the night in the #19 919 Hybrid, pulling away from their Porsche team-mates and the leading Audis to take the German manufacturer's first overall win in the race since 1998.
