6 Hours of Mexico

Unfortunately I've not had time to do a big long introductory post this week, so here's the basics. If I get time I'll do a short news round-up before the race, but my plan for 2018 is those will be posted on an external site, so wouldn't get too used to them

Looking forward to this one. Not my favorite track, but the top speeds should be really good this year with the new cars and lap records being set.

Thank you, thought I had my calendar muddled up as there wasn't a topic!

Porsche on top in practice 1 by over a second, but it was a wet session so who knows what the teams were doing. The times were slower by around 1.5-2 seconds from last year.

Porsche is looking very strong after FP2.
Although I did hear toyota still trying to get their car to stabilised
FP3 should give good estimates to the race. (although they'll do qualify lap so fastest time doesn't mean much)

Porsche only up by a tenth in practice 3. Hopefully it's this close in the race and qualifying! My picks are looking good in lmp2 as well. Seems GTE is a toss up.

I don't mind team orders in sportscar racing. It's the ultimate team sport, so where do you draw the line? Audi and Peugeot used slower cars as test cars during mixed conditions before, and I imagine Toyota and Porsche did it at some point. I think it's ok tbh.

Yeah, at this point I really wonder who Pierre & Gerard think they are fooling...

But no Toby is always worth a smile.
