Lapierre doing being the rear gunner with a charging Albuquerque behind him going for victory.

2014-5 WEC ... and now, 2017 ELMS.

One of the biggest surprises though was the High Class Racing Dallara. Never thought they would we contending for a podium and the race lead.

And 2 cars apiece from each manufacturer in the top 6. Not too bad.

I think the Dallara could win as well if they had a more experienced team and lead driver.
(Not taking anything away from High Class and Fjordbach, of course, but you know what I mean)

Absolutely fantastic race. Loved it. Great racing, very few incidents, no FCY, all 3 chassis mixed in. Just brilliant. Can't wait for WEC LMP2 tomorrow.

Also shades of AEX's tactics at Daytona against the Taylors... back then it was Albuquerque who profited, here he ended up on the receiving end. Luckily, neither influenced the ultimate outcome of the two races.

Nice job by Van de Garde, Dolan and Thincknell to be leading the championship without even participating.

At least the ELMS has different p2's. The WEC only has different paint jobs Hopefully tomorrow, it's as contentious!

I missed the first hour, but the rest was excellent! What an enjoyable way to start the season.

A quick question about the Rodas - there are 4 Italian drivers with the surname Roda (spread across all three categories).
Gianluca and Giorgio in GTE (definitely father and son), Andrea in LMP2 (possibly another son of Gianluca - I vaguely remember something from last year?), and Davide in LMP3.
Are they all related?
Or just coincidence that another Roda joined the ELMS party this year?

And, if they are all related, when last did 4 family members take part in the same series?
