Prologue schedule revised again because of the freight issue.

Monday: optional 3 hour afternoon session, mandatory 5 night hour session
Tuesday: mandatory 5 hour morning session, optional 3 hour afternoon session

Teams can only run in one of the optional sessions. This is to accommodate teams still running behind schedule who can opt for the Tuesday session if they need to.

Cars and the bulk of the equipment is sea freight. Some minor stuff is air. The air stuff has obviously not been an issue.

It's the reason why shipping companies are the main when it comes to moving racing vehicles from one continent to another. The time gap is essential for not only those but also transport and support semis, hospitality units and the like.
I'm sure the cargo department at the major international airlines know what they are doing. It's not uncommon for them to transport cars etc.

it is a good amount of the business Qatari and others from the ME to carry and move cargo. They run full on conversion cargo equipment and carry decent cargo on other flights. They know what they are doing and to pretend otherwise is intentionally dismissive of a major air freight mover, or just completely uninformed

Ref sea freight - part of the problem - and there are a LOT of problems at the moment is that a HUGE amount of freight carriers are opting not to take the route that goes into the currently troubled waters.

That means a lot - and I mean A LOT - of additional freight from Europe via Suez is being offloaded on the west coast of the Arabian peninsula for onward despatch by road.

Significantly more than usual which s overloading the port, and road transport infrastructure - so port backlogs are very significant at present in the region.

It's a long race on Saturday. Could see a bit of this:

'***Numerous drivers were hit with penalties for track limits abuse throughout Tuesday’s two sessions. Three drivers were hit with 10-minute stop-and-hold penalties: Marino Sato in the No. 95 United Autosports McLaren 720S GT3 Evo and two of the drivers of the No. 15 BMW M Hybrid V8, Raffaele Marciello and Marco Wittmann.

***Picking up five-minute penalties were Paul di Resta in the No. 94 Peugeot 9X8, Antonio Fuoco in the No. 50 Ferrari 499P, both Timur Boguslavskiy and Kelvin van der Linde in the No. 78 Akkodis ASP Lexus RC F GT3, Darren Leung in the No. 31 WRT BMW M4 GT3 and Giorgio Roda in the No. 88 Proton Competition Ford Mustang GT3'

The race is called 1812km but is it actually going to run to a time like the 1000 Miles of Sebring?

How long is the track? About how many laps would make the 1812?

Circuit is 5.418km. 335 will do it.

Fastest lap was 194.3km/h. 1:40.404. But that’s fastest.

Looking at it the other way round is probably best. 1812km in ten hours is 181.2km/h is an average of 1:47.642 lap time.

It’s tight with pitstops and cautions.

Tight indeed, and I was only paying attention to fastest times of the test, not stint lengths and tire fall off. 1:47 could be race pace for all we know.

That and considering the time distance between the entire Hypercar field was 0.03 seconds during the 3rd session. That's just incredible...
