Certainly rain must have livened things up. Letís enjoy this style of racing while we can


Great race sure, did feel a little top heavy with Lambo/Audi/AMG this year, really noticing the loss of Lexus, Mclaren and Nissan for variety

Weíve been spoilt in the last few years really

Watched the race via the live stream from the SRO website and thoroughly enjoyed it. John Watson was his usual passionate Porsche supporting self.
Weather caused a fair bit of chaos and always nice to see a new team win.

However, I then watched a bit of the Eurosport coverage - what a joke!
Missed the first hour and a half off the broadcast and then the two commentators had no idea what was going on - what was the point - Mark Cole is normally okay but the second guy? Who was he? They even missed the fact that Haase had come into the pits with a puncture 15 mins from the end.

If they are not going to put the resources into covering the event properly then rather they didn't bother at all!

Hope their coverage of the Spa 24 hours is better!

John Watson and David Addison, I mean, you can't get two more likable and knowledgeable commentators (Ben Edwards aside).

Addison is outstanding, I agree, but I'm not convinced about Watson. He gets very ranty sometimes, he interrupts and talks over Addison and he gets fixated on things (like saying over and over again that GT3 cars lose downforce and performance while following closely, as a train of 8 cars goes past nose to tail).

Eh?! I will not put up with nor tolerate any criticism of the greatness that is John Watson.

No it was Mark Cole, and Tom Gaymor who normally does single seater stuff for Eurosport.
He's not bad and does know his stuff but a bit loud.

Strong teams, weak attendance @ Monza . They should invest in fans. More open friendly attitude for Bentley and ROWE staff. Too much VIP lines and restrictions for the fans. Looks like hiding something unseen and classified outside top 5.
Looking forward for more action, grid walk and autograph session @ ELMS in two weeks.
