bridesmaid reception


Hokay, so Sebring has now been on for 25minutes and there's already been enough drama. It started off with my setup all bodging but then I got it sorted out, thankfully before the race itself started. I'll just have to splice in the pre race coverage later.

The 08 Peugeot started from the pit lane, due to hydraulic issues, but it doesn't seem to have bothered Franck Montagny whatsoever!

McNish leads, Lamy in p2 followed closely by Rockenfeller. PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN LAMY!

Will update later in the race, when we're more into it. 30mins into a 12 hour race isn't a lot really.

By the way, this is the 100th race at Sebring.

Sebring, 6hours

Half way through the race now and it's been great so far. Before I launch into anything, let me share my race updates from Twitter (most recent first):

So yes. Half way through. At the moment, Franck Montagny leads in the 08 Peugeot. Unfortunately the 07 car had problems with its air con and they had to fix it, which as left it a few laps behind I can only hope for all the cars infront to have problems. They can come back in after a few laps. On the plus side, they spoke to Christian twice after that stint, 3 times if you include the Speed TV time as well as the Motors TV ones! Our commentators seem to love him, which is good :D

There has been some amazing racing. Watching Montagny and McNish fighting for p1, driving side by side, omg just epic. John Hindhaugh was starting to go hoarse with his excitement!

Aside - I've just been distracted from my rambling by the news that they'd just caught Nic Minassian lounging around on a golf cart so they had a natter with him about the air conditioning unit. That's really rather amusing.

Um yeah. Can't think what else to put now! Thanks guys! Anyway, I'll be here for the next 6 hours, providing updates as and when I deem necessary/remember.
