    Not long to the start now. Who’s going to be watching this and who’s committed enough to watch the whole thing?

    I’m looking forward to see if the might of Audi can finally be toppled this year.

    is there anywhere online i could watch free? would be interested also in watching the race.

    Porsche this year.

    Yep – I’ll be dipping in and out of the coverage on Eurosport.

    My money is on Audi again – they just know how to win Le Mans. I think its a year to early for Porsche, and Toyotas always seem fragile.

    thanks salsaboy πŸ˜€

    I’m watching on Eurosport stream as well. I think if Toyota can keep the car going for the whole race they might be able to trouble Audi; that said I’m rooting for Porsche this year.

    I like keeping an eye on the deltawing as well.

    Thanks for that, used to go every year in the late 80’s early 90’s.
    Domestic circumstances dictate otherwise these days.

    Some big accidents there!
    Never forget the full on group C cars on night laps πŸ˜€

    She who must be obeyed has stated that she is watching celebrity masterchef and reckons that I shouldn’t complain because “you still know what’s going on, you don’t need the commentary”.

    Yes dear.

    Grumble.

    She watched the catch up on iPlayer, and I’m using all my screen for racing related content. I really want to go next year don’t worry!

    have been watching this since the start (first time i have watched the race live).

    bloody awesome man (especially those monster hybrid prototype lp1 cars).

    i will go and see it live before i die (i hope πŸ˜€

    Are you planning on trying to make the whole thing? I’m going to give it a bash this year.

    will try my best to stay up,but fear i will be a lightweight and chicken out 😳

    i do want to watch the night time racing though (crazy watching the on board footage/can barely see the bonnet it seems 😯 could be my eyes are going but even so,200+ mph at night 😯

    Well it should be fully dark in an hour or so.

    I don’t think I’ll be able to do the full 24hours but I’m going to give it a good go.

    Blimey those lights are rubbish. I’d want some Super Oscars.

    No,the lights are awesome, it just doesn’t convey on tv!

    i have to say that i’m very impressed by the explanations of the cars/hybrid technology e.t.c during the race.

    you can tell the guy is an expert,but he explains in a way a numpty like me can understand it.

    really amazing technology the hybrids are using.

    EDIT this is how the night le mans race looks to me πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been sort of up but dozing throughout the night and now have a very stiff neck!

    have just woken up at 7am looking forward to the rest of the race.

    the most laps completed according to wiki is 397 laps.wonder how close to that it’ll be this year? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_24_Hours_of_Le_Mans_winners

    Everytime I’ve had a nap something has happened, bloody typical!

    Having Jeremy Vine commentating on Eurosport has destroyed it for me πŸ™

    Stop Reboot Carry On 😯 amazing Audi car.

    audi now in garage,porsche will take the lead this lap.

    Porsche takes the lead :))

    Audi are catching the Porsche, by 5 seconds a lap, getting exciting!

    tbh can get no excitement for formula 1 any more,but this rocks. between this and the iom tt as the best motorsport events for me any way.

    it’s actually been really exciting to watch this and especially those badass prototype hybrid cars πŸ˜€

    vive la france πŸ˜€

    porsche just slowed down with a problem
