I really want to see how the LMP1-p's compare to the TS050 with the new EOT.

At le mans R13's had an insane cornering speed, even better than toyota's sometime. Expect to see a very solid race from them

They've certainly made it hard to see the cars on track when walking between the two paddocks... The fences are either covered in Toyota advertising, green netting or both.

As in .. more than normal?

What about other parts of the circuit - there were some complaints last year about the positioning and size of advertisement hoardings around the Becketts/Maggots area that seemed to annoy almost everybody!

There's a lot more green netting. Especially in the first sector.

Have Kolles just blown an engine and put oil on track?

Poorly, but it's early in the weekend.

Reportedly Senna has broken ankle, will not race.


I don't think anyone will challenge Toyota unless they have some trouble.
If Toyota should win I very much hope that it will be No. 7 at last.
Only win for this crew (without Lopez) so far was Fuji 2016.

But most importantly I hope that we will have decent fight for the podium place(s) in LMP1 NH which wasn't the case in Spa and LM ultimately.
It is only Rebellion so far. Just like Toyota

Let's see the timing from FP2, but... in FP1 only Button and Aleshin drove it, Petrov didn't drive at all.

Trying to find pictures of the new aero kit of the ByKolles. Anyone?

So far in fp2, Toyota up front again with the #7 in the 1:38's. SMP look to be ahead of Rebellion in the 1:40's, but race pace looks a lot closer judging from live timing. Aston Martin are surprisingly near the front in GTE PRO.
