Will be interesting to see whether that Boutsen-Ginion car is fixable in time for the race. Not sure they will make qually but hoping for an update on RLM shortly.

Also seems that Sebastien Loeb himself will be at the track tomorrow after binning his DS3 in Portugal on Thursday evening. Will he be in an LMP next season? Place your bets...

Quite excited to see what Status can do this year with a few young guns on board. Car looks great and is currently fastest on the charts in the hands of Buurman.

Was a decent fight at the end of FP2. Sims did his qually sim early it seems in the Status and that time held on by a thread at the end of the session.

Alex Brundle got right on the pace and was 0.001 off the fastest time in the Greaves. A good series to look at for young British drivers this season.

It's interesting to see that Loeb are still just a bit off the ultimate pace seemingly. Still wouldn't put it past them to slap in a fast time in qualifying.

ep16 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
At least the ELMS looks competitive this year, lets just hope it says this way all year at they can put togeter a decent media package and get some more entries for next year.

Back to the present! Looks like there should be a good race tomorrow; staus, tds and greaves all look fast in P2. GT looks fairly close aswell. Will be intersting to see who can transfer their pace to a win!

Having been across all the sessions today I subscribe even more to the theory that quality beats out quantity. Some great teams and drivers in the series. Quite excited to see what happens tomorrow.

I know the field is not what we are used to , but there should be a right knife fight in P2 , and the am cars look like mixing it up with the pro cars , so another battle ..... great stuff .

Best of luck Jody , bring her home son .

According to the race morning report on DSC, the Boutsen-Ginion Oreca should make the start after the fire daage in practice- It was out in the warm-up after the team did an all-nighter to repair it
