Latest: Olivier Beretta is suited up and ready to hop into the #73 Corvette next stop. Robert Kauffman, the driver of the #71 AF Corse Ferrari that took out Mike Rockenfeller in the #1 Audi R18 was retired by the ACO for the rest of the race after the incident occurred.

Patrick Long (the woodsprite, as Paul calls him) is back in the #80 Flying Lizard Porsche.

Damn, Rockenfeller's wreck was intense - glad he's okay. Looked like the rear of the #1 Audi simply came away on the pass (from the video on Speed), the C6R went along unscathed so it seemed. Stunning impact, that is a true testament to the build of the Audi and the safety regs in place.

McNish was a dolt for trying to pass the Ferrari as it set the apex on the corner, but glad he came away okay too.

Yeah, it was rough. It was actually the AF Corse Ferrari that had the incident with Rockenfeller. He moved over on him despite ample warning, essentially running him off the road.

Holy--the lead Corvette in GTE-Pro went off bad at the pit entrance!

Right you are - totally misunderstood that encounter.

Crazy carnage going on this year.

#74 Corvette is done. The #51 AF Corse Ferrari is now in the lead, followed by #73 Corvette one lap back, then the #80 Flying Lizard Porsche another lap back. Real bummer for Corvette Racing, after what happened last year.

Damn Le Mans coverage has robbed me of my Sunday!

Serious smash-fest this year...

Hey Tit! Hahah, I'm pretty much giving it my entire weekend.

Just lost the #81 Flying Lizard Porsche (GTE-Am). "Lost all drive" is the reason I heard. No additional details through Flying Lizard race radio.

We've lost our coverage for a bit - so no Le Mans love until later tonight (my time)....
