    Kaz's Nissan has cooling problems and went from 16th to 137th. Thanks Radio Le Mans for reading/answering my question on the broadcast :sHa_biggrin:

    Ok guys edumacate me on something.

    I see when they are fuelling the teams are using some type of bottle that the fuel is actually pumped into.

    Whats the deal?

    The fueling rigs are regular gas station pumps, so I'm assuming they have to use that device to actually get the fuel into the car's tank.

    They had to change the engine on Kaz's car. Hopefully it will be back on track soon.

    Looking at the racing now, with the rain coming down, a lot of the cars are in the pit lane. As you can see, the pit lane is really crowded. I wonder if this "traffic jam" in the pit lane (something like 5-6 cars sharing the same pit box), is the main reason of having bottle refuelling...i.e. there are no tangling of highly flammable liquid with tubings that can be knocked off.

    What an amazing last hour. Black Falcon MB won, and showed how it was supposed to be done to the factory team. Bernd Schneider finally got his win at Nurburgring 24H. Maxime Martin with the BMW, what can you say. It was the 2 passes within the few corners over the factory MB #22 and #23 really made my day watching the race.

    Great to hear the commentators talked about Kazunori Yamauchi-san and GT6 as well. :)

    This is a very interesting conversation between RLM's John Hindhaugh and Ryan Dalziel of Starworks Motorsport about the planned merger between ALMS and the Rolex Series, and more specifically, the results of a back to back test of a Daytona Prototype and a LMP2 at Sebring.

    The 24 hrs of Le Mans is not until week after next weekend but today is test day. No TV coverage, but there is that 1 static cam pointing at pit lane with French commentary, but you can use radio lemans for English.
