Meanwhile, a lead change for P2.. seems the Oak Racing #35 Ligier's problems continue.

Seems to have power issues, doesn't have the straight line speed that the others do.

Now #14 Porsche has rather bad gearbox problems... and is going into the garage too. Hopefully it's able to be mended...

And Leib's out of the car. That's a big ol' nope for the Porsches, within a lap of each other in the end. A shame, but for a first year back in a while it was pretty positive really. Just need to work on the reliability now...

Indeed, for no proper 24h tests they were quite reliable.

Looks like a one-two for Audi, and win for Ferrari in GTE.

Oh god.

GTE-Am leading Aston just backed into garage.. hopefully something minor, they have a nice lead.

Edit: Yup, just using their buffer to make sure everything is good.

Looks like Porsche are going to try and get #14 around the track once more to be able to at least have one car 'finish'.

Toyota will score a podium with the crashed #8.

The Audis are already driving in formation for when they cross the finish line.

The #14 Porsche is out of the garage. At least they'll finish. Somewhat.

Toyota had a pretty damn good showing really.. #8 was in the pits for an hour (9 laps due to slow running in the rain) repairing the front end and otherwise has been bang on the pace. Just need to deconstruct the #7 and make any fixes that they can out of it.

They say you need three cars to win Le Mans: One which crashes, another which breaks down and a third one which wins if it is fast.

Toyota was lacking that third car.

I reckon that might be a thing.. explains vast Audi's success over the years.

The 82nd 24h of Le Mans are over.

Congratulations to Audi for their one-two and congratulation to Ferrari too for having won... in GTE.
