I've kinda like this event because it simply kick starts the endurance / racing season for me, especially since we are heading into the dark days of sports for a few months.

I think the protos are a new part of the series as I don't recall them last year.

Unfortunately, being on the oppo side of the world, when I'm awake, it's dark there and when I'm asleep, it's light. (no, I don't really like watching headlights from a roof cam on a Tilke drome too much). However, the full coverage has been great in the past.

And I'm no longer working from home where it was easy to follow while working so I'll struggle to view this one this year, especially with my schedule later this week.

Front Runner will be showing large portions of the race live in the UK for those who can get it, Sky channel 468, not sure on other platforms.

Wonder if the Oreca FLM/LMPC is eligible for the prototype series. It should be. I imagine those have not been the easiest races to do commentary on. 3x3 hour races with just a 15 car grid or less

Nah, there's been some good action so far. Worth a watch. The dynamic of the G57s vs the P3s has been interesting.

Impressed by the Porsches here so far; I wasn't convinced by their ability to make reliable endurance racers in the current GT3 market, but three in the top five (so far) is good going.

For some reason (maybe because I cannot tell time) I missed the race. Now I find it in full, on the site.

Now That is a professional operation. WEC, take note.

I found myself thinking the same thing for timing. Predictive lap, sector times, tracker...Is it really that hard to implement these features? I can't imagine it's a cost thing.

Ah, but the FIA is involved with the wec, so that automatically makes it controlled by those usually out of touch with the common watcher.

The Creventic set up is a great one. The event was fantastic! I'll try and post some photos once I've sifted through all of them. Flew out on Wednesday, was at the track Thursday --> Saturday and then flew back to the UK yesterday.

They are all good shots, but my favorite is the overhead shot of the pit stop. Clean, creative, well-executed.

Cheers, that's very kind of you to say so

I was mucking around really - need to be a bit more focussed on my photography and take more photos!

ETA : I need to have a bit of play with Lightroom and a little bit of cropping as well..
