I love elms. The variety is outstanding.

Cleanish race start given the amount of am drivers. Love seeing the corvette back too.

Graff leading early. FCY for a beached P3 Paris Barthez car which just assaulted the World of Tanks car. Lapierre goes off under waved yellows. That won't go down well.

Trust myself to get the timezones wrong again...

I'll watch this later and catch the Blancpain race live. I'm hoping for a good one.

The website countdown was wrong (again). Never ever use it. If the race starts at 1:30 local time then it counts down to 1:30 YOUR time. So I'd have missed the first hour. Always check the timetable and convert that. Never use the countdown, it's never right.

Poor World of Tanks car. They've been beaten up a lot this year.

Graff putting in a good performance but poor strategy ended up costing them time. The Norma is a fantastic little car with an incredible straight line speed. That's really helping them against the Ligier.

It's not been that bad. We've had a couple of FCY for them. But it is an Am based series so shouod be expected a bit. Its not like PC where they were disrupting a Pro series.

I've watched for just over half an hour and in that time period, there have been two FCY for them. There was also an earlier FCY not sure why.

As I write this 1:40 in, six LMP3s are behind the entire GTE-Am field…

The GTE Am field is a pretty high standard. The LMP3 isn't. There was one additional FCY you didn't see which was LMP3s into Ascari. Outside of those incidents, there's been very few and most are actually LMP2s that have been off. The yellow banana mobile, Tockwith and a few others have had offs that came very close to FCY. I don't see the problem with a handful of LMP3 from the huge class being behind the lower class, especially it they aren't dangerous. It wasn't that long ago that LMP675 couldn't even best the GT Classes at Le Mans, and that class was more mature than the LMP3s. And the LMP3 performance difference to GTE isn't that big - ask our resident Mike about the problems that caused the GTE drivers.

Almost 2 hours in, I think we've had 3 FCY, each one 5-10 minutes long. We've lost 15-30 min of 115 minutes to FCY. That's pretty good given around 75% of this field is amateur. Standard seems high enough. I've seen worse WEC and IMSA races.

Seems like the Cosworth electronics problems that plagued the ACO spec LMP2s at Daytona and Sebring have returned at Monza. Did Cosworth and Gibson dig though stock piles of old British Leyland and Fiat and Alfa Romeo electrical components from the 1970s?

They never went away. When it strikes a car, it does it consistently. Graff seemed to be the sufferer of choice this weekend, like Rebellion at Daytona. Graham Goodwin described it in a very simple way on the commentary - there's 2 different parts controlling different things, and every so often they can't talk to each other properly. Really does need sorted.

Richard Bradley was not a happy man. Unlike DragonSpeed who'll be very happy. A 1-2. Hedman was pretty good too. We're used to him doing Ed Brown style stints and losing so much time it's unrecoverable, but today he lost a couple of spots (Am driver, that's expected) but kept close enough that it could be recovered. They were no match for the sister G-Drive car, but that's an amazing line-up they have. Léo Roussel looked like a Pro today.

Becoming a big fan of High Class Racing. They're having a great first season.

I have ingeniously managed to misread the clock and the schedule again. Looking forward to the replay.

Was out and about yesterday so missed the race, and while learning the result has percolated through quite looking forward to having it as background entertainment during the week.

Loved watching the qualifying coverage - contemporary LMPs around Monza look superb.
