Alright, it's that time of year again! We are less than a week away from one of the greatest spectacles in Motorsports. I might stay up and watch the entire race. Not sure if I'll catch qualifying. It's going to be awesome!

Here is the entry list:

We are getting a 60 car grid, this year.

Some interesting entries:

Former French goalkeeper Fabien Barthez will be driving a Ligier-Nissan LMP2.

Frederic Sausset, a quadruple amputee will also be in a Ligier-Nissan LMP2.

Hype hype hype.

As of right now, some of the Ganassi team members, and CGR Le Mans drivers Scott Dixon, and Sebastien Bourdais, along with fellow drivers Mikhail Aleshin, and Townsend Bell are going to be late getting to Le Mans. Tonight's Verizon IndyCar Series race is in a rain delay and it's made it so they can not leave on time, and will miss at least some of tomorrow's activities (possibly all if the race gets delayed to tomorrow).

 

edit: It's delayed until tomorrow afternoon meaning Dixon, Bourdais, Aleshin, Bell and some of the Ganassi team members will likely miss all of tomorrow's activities at Le Mans.

Wow, such a shame.

Also a massive shame is that Bamber and Tandy are not in the prototypes after their performance last year. And not bringing back Hulkenberg, screw you Porsche...

I'm hoping Rebellion racing have a better outing this year after what happened last year, but the prototype battle is going to be between the Audis and the Porsches, I think. Wonder how the TS050 is going to fare.

crazy what happened at the end with the Toyota team breaking down on the final lap while leading...

 

Multiple protests have been filed in the GTE-Pro class. Ford has filed a protest against the #82 Ferrari team, and Ferrari has filed a protest against Ford.

Well I've heard Ford repeated history with an near all top 5 finish this year with the GT, so the protest on Ferrari's end about the GT having "an unfair advantage" and the fact Ferrari hasn't won outright at Le Man since the beginning of the GT40 and 917 era, it just seems like pure Salt on Ferrari's end that Ford just wiped the floor with them again, I'm not sure about the leader lights thing Ford is on about (guessing those are important?), still typical Bulls*it, so nothing new here.

I managed to catch about 18 hours of the race.

Absolutely gutted for Toyota #5, but such is fate. No comment on what happened in GTE-Pro. This is one of those races that'll never be forgotten, I think.

Results stayed the same, though. It's absolute bullsh*t that the Risi #82 was being penalized for something so late when the lights weren't working for quite a while.
