That was pretty damn sweet. I can't wait for the race! I'd also like to add that if I ever get famous and die prematurely, I want Alan McNish to narrate my the film about my life.

My Lizards are struggling a bit with setup in GTE-Pro, but their GTE-Am car is in P2.

Don't you mean "dial in their low"?

They did change rear springs, but no mention of ride height.

Adding this to the first post:

Direct Radio Le Mans stream: http://direct.sharp-stream.com/radioshow.mp3

Not sure about other phones, but if you drop this into the browser on an Android phone, it loads right up and starts streaming Radio Le Mans.

Probly got a leak in an airbag, or maybe -5 degrees of rear camber wasn't enough. Hahah or maybe their wheels were hitting the fenders from so much omgstance poke.

Nine hours until race start. Final qualifying was last night:

http://www.lemans.org/en/races/24h-d...ve-timing.html

Detailed breakdowns are available in the PDFs on that page.

I'm in for the full 24, as usual. Anyone else watching?

They're streaming on http://stream.speedtv.com/corvette for the next few hours, then again for awhile tonight. That page has two streams: an onboard camera from Corvette Racing that is running for the entire race, and the main Le Mans stream that is running during the breaks in coverage on Speed channel (for NASCAR, F1 qualifying, and motocross).

Also, in case you missed it, the McNish/Capello/Kristensen #3 Audi Sport car is out. McNish rolled the dice on a mid-corner pass vs a GTE-Pro car and had a nasty wreck. Almost took out a group of photographers when the car went airborne against the tire wall. Everyone seems to be okay, though. Video:
