bridesmaid reception

Le Mans

I'm watching Le Mans.  I like it.  Am going to see if I can stay up and watch it all.

The commentators keep on about their forum and questions on it from viewers.  These are responses to one of the questions.  I find them highly amusing!

'just how fast would a f1 car go round this circuit?'
'probably about the same speed as the peugeots'
'maybe just a little bit quicker' 
'they wouldnt let them race here' 
'but the real question is, could a f1 car last this long?' 
'thats what we should be doing... 24 hour f1'
bridesmaid reception

Le Mans

6 hours gone.  18 more to go. 

They've hit the 100 lap margin and Franck Montagny (9) was literally right behind Jacques Villneuve (7).  Now Franck leads and they're on the 104th lap or something.  He had taken the lead by the 102nd lap.  Its looking good.  I like it, but it's probably a good thing that Le Mans is only on once a year!

Franck's gotta be taking a break in the not too distant future.  He must have been driving since around 5pm...  Christian's up next though, whenever that is. 

Edit: yeah, its like 8.20pm and Christian's going in the car now :) 
Edit: he's leading at the moment, but Marc Gene (7) is catching him :(
