Sebring

There's under 2 hours left now. 1hr42mins if you must know.

It has been confirmed that Allan McNish is a robot: he is in search and destroy mode.

There was more to this, but I can't remember it all. Might check back through sometime when I'm awake.

Quick update on positions: Bourdais leads with McNish hunting him down. Next is Luhr in the Audi 1 who's covering the stint for 3rd driver Marco Werner who has cracked ribs and is unable to race now. Luhr and Rockenfeller are splitting the remaining time between each other. In P4 sits the 07 Peugeot, currently being driven by Pedro Lamy. This is good, especially as they've had the problems with the air conditioning in that car. Unfortunately they're still 8 laps behind the leaders, but well, what can you do now, short of the others having problems? Christian's been out already in the dark and I don't know if he'll do the very final stint. Pedro might stay in and do a long stint, or they could put Nic in, but Christian has shown to be very quick in the dark. Who knows what they'll do. I'm a bit lost with the pit stops etc now.

However, this is my favourite time of Endurance racing: night. There's something epic about them racing with essentially only the light from their headlights. None of this namby pamby lighting of the track nonesense. However, I do think that the night racing at Road Atlanta was more epic than this, but maybe that was due to who was racing who at the time... and the fact that by that time they'd already had numerous yellow flags, moreso than here, but there you go.
