If you ever get the chance, go to Lemans. the atmosphere is like nothing else. I got the chance to go twice, the second time I got hooked up and was able to hang in the Corvette corral at the track.

Our boys in yellow are going to have run a perfect race to make up the speed deficit they give up to the Astons. I believe their experience, and efficiency can help make that up, but there is much less room for error this year. 11 hours to green flag...

The Vette boys are scratching their heads, they were over 4 seconds quicker during the test 2 weeks ago, in the low 55's-high 54's, now the best is mid 58's, so there's something they're missing on the setup. Hopefully they'll figure it out by Race day. It would be great to see the C6R go out with a LeMans win in it's last season before we change over to the C7R.

this.....

The race started at 15:00 (CEST) on Saturday 22 June. On third lap of the race, Dane Allan Simonsen lost control of his No. 95 Aston Martin in the Tetre Rouge corner and impacted the barriers. Simonsen later died from his injuries.[1]

I've been watching for some time and it looks like they switch from time to time. Wish they would just stay on forward view.

Incidentally, it looks like the Astons can pass the Vettes at will on most straights. Bummer.

Sad news.
Here's how it happened:


Looks like he went head on into one of these trees behind the rail.
