No 8 Toyota had to have f/r brake change and has fallen behind a Rebellion but can't see it being a setback.

My UKM5 and MBelgium friends -
Indeed - a number of SC's and a huge shunt involving an LMP car losing it's rear wing at the end of the Mulsanne and under heavy braking....

SKY announcers Paul di Resta and Anthony Davidson piloting LMP cars!!!!

Right now it's Rebellion in 2nd and 3rd with the @3 Rebellion just one lap down on the @8 Toyota.
The @7 Toyota had one turbo replaced putting it 6 laps down; Will Toyota bad luck strike again and Rebellion come through for a one-two.

#8 Toyota has a 5 lap lead over #1 Rebellion. Hopefully Toyota holds on for its third consecutive win.

It was 1 lap but increased because @1 Rebellion came in to have front nose mounts replaced as they were twisting with risk of nose flying off.
Toyota has had it far too easy with no Porsche so got fingers crossed for Rebellion.

Nakajima wins though I bet he was praying the Toyota wouldn't stop like on a previous LM race when his Toyota broke down on the last lap while leading.

Circuit de La Sarthe....
Such an epic world-level competition....of machine/driver/crew/weather/time/design/engineers/strategy.

I am convinced if I ever have the opportunity I would walk as much of the spectator areas as possible and stay up the entire 24.
