The end of Sebring is nigh

After yet more technical problems, the 07 car finally draws to a halt. Pedro Lamy pulled it slowly off down the service/escape road. It's now being towed off. Goodbye 07 car, I shall miss you. You've had all the problems today, which is a shame because your three drivers have driven well. Apparently it was broken transmission that made him pull out.

McNish leads. It looks like he will win in the Audi 2. I assume that Montagny will finish P2 and the other Audi will finish P3. We still have a few mins left, so anything could happen, but I think most of the interesting racing has taken place now, it's all too calm there. Besides, I'm not that bothered now, because the 07 car has gone. There's a possibility that they might still manage to stay 4th overall, but it really depends on how many more laps the 15 car behind them manages to do.

The commentators on Motors TV have really kept me amused today. They're rather odd, but they're funny.

Good for LeSeb though.

It's a shame yes, but in the end, the better man won (and has done every time I've watched Endurance racing! grr). It's good practice for 24hours of Le Mans though, so I await that now. It's just unlucky that the 07 car had problems, but these things happen. The guys all drove well. Yes there were a couple of mistakes, but Christian was one of the youngest people in it, and the couple of younger people in it have all been doing that kind of racing for longer. Last year he was a Le Mans rookie, and this year he's not had much practice time at Sebing due to the problems with the car before, so I'm still really impressed with him. *squishes Christian*
