LM 24H – Setting up

Taking the opportunity that the cars and drivers are taking part in the 3rd free practice session to set my viewing centre for the weekend.

Live video on the main screen, live timing and position board on the smaller screen.

Commentary courtesy of Radio Le Mans. I can confirm they still talk a fair amount of crap and the race is not started yet but a Le Mans weekend wouldn’t be the same without them.

The 3rd practice session is now over with the Alpine #36 taking the best time.

I am catching up with the different cars and am quite impressed with the new hypercar team Glickenhaus. The front of the car looks like the old Ferraris did. Glickenhaus Racing is making its WEC and Le Mans 24 Hours debut this year with its 007 LMH. The American manufacturer has chosen a French engine to power its hypercar prototype. Cock-a-doodle-doo! Pipo Moteurs has designed a V8 engine that has given complete satisfaction up to now. A great performance for the engine manufacturer who is also making his debut in endurance racing.

Tonight 9pm, the so-called hyperpole qualifying session will take place. Followed by another free practise session at 10pm.

I shall of course be watching.
