I did.

It was very good, apart from maybe the first 40-something minutes. Not much racing and too many stupid accidents.
The last 80 minutes were great to watch though.

Excellent move by Hörr on Cauhaupe for the lead, and with great championship implications as well.
Superb battle between Andlauer and Schiro in GT as well.

Great fightback from Kapadia after falling back from 2nd to dead last (due to a puncture?) after a first lap pitstop.
A shame that car retired on the out lap for the 2nd driver.

Lap 1 and Rusinve is beached on the curb and goes a lap down, Hanson in the gravel and down to 13th

Safety car, and Jamin hits Hirschi.

Jamin takes the lead and immediately pits


Fjordbach is flying and goes from 5th to 1st in one lap and a half.

Dragonspeed has been disqualified, High Class Racing now takes 3rd after a very good drive from both Fjordbach and Andersen that had them leading 71 of the 135 laps.

Fjordbach had the 7th fastest lap of the entire race, faster than Van Uitert, Brundle, Stevens, Hanley, Laurent, Owen, Bradley, Gommendy, Lancaster and many others.
Not too bad for a silver driver.
(OK, Jensen en Hanson are also silver and were even faster)

It wouldn’t be an ACO race without a disqualification…

The very final exception finally leaves the Oreca Le Mans class, most likely meaning every entry next year has the same spec car, same spec engine, and same spec tires. It's like Formula 2, finally! Only with fake silver drivers, sub category for non-fake-silver-bronzes, more disqualifications, glorious clone chassis rebrandings such as Aurus, and lowered performance levels. And at least F2/GP2 sort of warms up the atmosphere before Grand Prix.

https://www.endurance-info.com/fr/el...s-2021-part-1/
https://www.endurance-info.com/fr/334458-2/

Endurance-Info suggest for 2021:

United Autosports:
will be back with at least 1 , probably 2 LMP2s. Probably some new drivers since Albuquerque is looking at WEC+IMSA, and there have been tensions between the 2 driver lineups. At least 1, probably 2 LMP3s.

G-Drive/TDS:
Are heading for a divorce. TDS is looking to be back in LMP3 and will see what can be done for LMP2

Panis:
1 LMP2 expected. A second is possible, but in conjuction with another team/structure.

Graff:
1 LMP2 likely, 1 or 2 LMP3s. Extra car with SRT41 likely for the 2 races preceding Le Mans.

Duqueine:
looking at WEC, ELMS or maybe even both

Cool:
status quo: ELMS with same drivers. LMP3 car possible with maybe current MLMC drivers. End of WEC programme

High Class:
WEC or ELMS? Would like to hold on to Kenta Yamashita. Huge fine for missing Bahrain is ****ing them off. May look at IMSA for select races, or instead of European programme.

IDEC:
hoping to be back with LMP2. LMP3 likely for MLMC. Nothing decided as of yet.

Richard Mille:
will continues, most likely in ELMS and not WEC

Algarve Pro:
favorites to land G-Drive programme. Will likely include Mehri. 2nd car targeted for Falb.

Inter Europol:
LMP2 programme moves to WEC. Probaly 2 LMP3s in ELMS

Dragonspeed:
1 LMP2 in WEC. No news for ELMS or IMSA programmes

BHK:
1 LMP2 planned + 1 LMP3 likely

Carlin:
not expected to be back

Phoenix:
may add ELMS to planned Asian LMS programme

Anyone knows what is (or was) going on at United Autosports?
There were some rumours before that there have been some tensions between the driver crews.

Lately in some French media there was speculation that there has been a major fallout. Not everyone seemed to be happy that everything in United evolves around Phil Hanson, and now there are reports that only Hanson will return and all others will not.
Albuquerque is off to IMSA, so maybe he cannot combine both.
But also Van Uitert, Brundle and Owen would be out, then?

Ultimate will be back for 2021 with an Oreca 07 supported by Tech 1 (just like Panis)
Drivers will be their familiar trio of Lahaye-Lahaye-Heriau
