Show of hands, who's surprised at MSR?

Yeah, didn't think so.

Great news a long time coming for MSR

VERY surprised at the WTR news however.

WTR has been rumored for a while. Sucks though since itís an overall loss to the DPi class car count next year

I kept lolíing at the image they made with the super-stretched Meyer Shank Racing logo.

Not surprised MSR was one of the teams, but thought it would be Andretti or Rahal picking up the second car. Interesting move for WTR, wonder what that will mean for Cadillac.

And surely it means Porsche-Penske in LMDh is happening, no?

No clue. But there is precedent, the WEC channel on YouTube has older full races online, and the round before (Spa) went on about two weeks after the race? So there's hope Le Mans would be up before Christmas.

I'm sure it's available in the areas already.

The Audi Sport pit crew are wearing the old Le Mans Audisport fire suits which is cool.

I watched some of the early qualifying stuff yesterday and its spooky seeing the circuit without any of the circus that normally accompanies the race. Also a shame that most of the regular porsches aren't taking part after the le mans fallout

I didn't even notice until the commentary team brought it up because it's always like this in video games.

Kind of sad only getting 97 entries for the 24h this year because of Porsche and Covid. Maybe timing too I guess...

Looks like the weather is calling for rain and in the 40s... Going to be an interesting race if it's not all red flagged... And apparently they get less than 12 hours of sunlight this time of year...?

That'd be close to half of what they got last year and I guess its a combo of timing and global events more generally. They normally run it when the longest days of the year are at their fullest so that amount of night is tiny but that's not going to be the case this year and it could be real interesting. There's also piles of leaves falling onto the track that could add another element of uncertainty to the race.

Well if it was dry the cars would probably just blow the leaves off the track normally... not sure how it will work if there's wet leaves all over though. Should be a fun race even if it's all headlights.

It's like the equivalent of high 20s around a track like Spa, could be pretty lonely in the last few hours.

For a race with a lot of amateur and smallish business funding and a lot of people who can't dodge various travel restrictions with money, getting half the cars really isn't a bad score.

Tyre guys are taking knives to the tyre tread to split tread blocks so they rub on themselves more in a desperate attempt to get any sort of temperature into them. poo poo is metal out there.

I was looking forward to watching the race today but I guess Iíll have to head outside and do things today instead of watching the cars go round but itís probably for the best really if they canít guarantee that the guys will be at all safe

Yea... sucks to have a 24h race with 12 hours of darkness and rain. Once they red flagged it, that was pretty much it until there's some sunlight...

On one hand, it was pretty treacherous.

But also, a few hours later it'd stopped raining.

Yea... but even up to daybreak. It looked like there was very heavy fog. Heavy fog with standing water on the track? Sound like a good way to kill someone...

And they also raised that we were looking at the GP circuit which has good drainage, where as the rest of the track does not, so it was definitely impossible.

I always loved the Lemans night team when they shut down the cameras along most of the track overnight. Might have just been the radio Lemans team.
