That’s the wrong one! See the later photo.

We are listening out for it at the airport this evening.

Two more videos to watch before the race

Hyperpole at Caddy, that moment when all the reporters left them and ran to the Porsche garage

Estre vs Pier Guidi. Looks like that LMP2 slipstream didn't do Estre any favors after all. Entering the Porsche curves they were equal and Estre pulled a 0.5 s gap there, amazing.

Isn't Calum a bit of a crasher? Must have racked up some repair bills in Indy as well.

The track conditions changed quite a lot session to session. I don’t meant the non sun just general changes

There was talk that the support races made a difference - the rubber going down wasn’t compatible with the Hypercar rubber. Others talked about the influence of the wind.

It’s always a thing, but seems more this year. Or I’ve just noticed more.

Top speeds were down during hyperpole due to a headwind on the mulsanne. This also explains why laptimes were slower than last year.



The top speeds here were mostly recorded from laps where hypercars had slipstreams while clearing traffic but you can still see the downward trend. The Porsche did not exceed 325km/h on it's pole lap in clear air. The Alpine did not exceed 330km/h on it's best lap. Everything was substantially down.

There was a fan pic of a Jota Hertz 963 in a hospitality area at the circuit...I had imagined it was a pukka race car... but seems to only have been a show car..

Bloody good job by the Jota folks, however they may have just about sent the crew to sleep during the 24...

Yes, that'll be a show car, which as far as I am aware contains a lot of wood.
