I've seen a 'race ready' iQ in that livery, so the Yaris isn't really that shocking I guess.

I can't believe you're all shocked and surprised about the GT-R LM being FWD. Don't you read Mulsanne's Corner? You ought to.

yes but up until the most recent leaks (not the Jalopnik drawing but the photos) it was hard to really say with confidence that they'll be THAT crazy. And even the photos couldn't tell you it was going to be FF. Seeing the photos from Pruett and the clips of the car almost fully undressed (in that "RC car" state) give that a bunch more credence. That drives it home, I guess. We'll see if he's right about there being no rear wing for Le Mans, I kind of hope for it if only to see how everyone else reacts.

Whincup has re-signed with T8 until the end of the 2018 season, another three loving years of never being penalised for anything ahoy.

I'd agree with this. Anything I was too young to see racing in its native habitat I've generally seen at revival meetings. This was two weeks ago:

It was easy to tell once you saw the size mismatch in tires from front to back.

The Lemans entry list is out:

http://www.motorsport.com/lemans/ne...-list-revealed/

That P2 field is nuts. BR01, Oreca 05, and the Dome are all clean sheet closed cockpit cars, the older cars (Oreca 03, Morgan, Gibson/Zytek) all got upgrade packages, and no less than 5 Ligier's.

And even though P1 doesn't really float my boat, will be cool to see how the Nissan's do.

35 full season WEC entries too, despite the cap being 32 because of travel costs , and 34 for ELMS

Lots of driver announcements coming out as well - Pla, Tincknell & Matsuda for Nissan and Porsche confirming Hulkenberg in the 3rd P1 along with Earl Bamber and Nick 'Worst driver in this paddock' Tandy. Think they decided to promote them before Daytona?

A major crash in New South Wales has left three Kiwi race car drivers injured, including one believed to be in an induced coma with a spinal injury.

Christchurch construction company director Phil Mauger and Christchurch Mag & Turbo Warehouse owner Hayden Knighton were the most seriously injured after their car was sandwiched between a fuel tanker and three cars on the Great Western Highway about 1.30pm yesterday.

They were travelling with two other GT3 Endurance Ltd teammates to Bathurst where they were to race in the annual Bathurst 12 Hour race on Sunday.

Driver Scott O'Donnell said they were stopped at a red light in Kelso, 5km from their destination, when the truck rear ended them, sending their rented BMW X3 hurtling into three cars in front.

Yeah, unfortunately I don't have time to sit through all three races full-length, which is why I was looking for the one-hour condensed shows from ITV. I've found 10 minute videos which will have to do.

Good news, CBS will be showing 1 hour highlights packages 10 days after the rounds this year.
