Watch Le Mans 2013! (updated)

R18 etron 2013

Need a place to watch Le Mans 2013?? Every year I put up the links I am using to watch Le Mans.  The greatest race in the world is back……on one side of my mind, I have an Audi Sport flag waving and on the other side I have a blue Alpine flag waving for LMP2.  Either way….this is the motor racing event of the year and definitely worth watching.

Here are some links to watch, listen, and follow (these will be updated throughout the next 24 hours).  Please feel free to make any suggestions to other good sources.

EUROSPORT <——- superb link, British Eurosport in with English commentary

EUROSPORT #2 (also British Eurosport, thank you Ricardo for the link!)

ACO Le Mans

24-LeMans.com 

Listen to fantastically detailed commenting at Radio Le Mans

LIVE TIMING via WEC! the best way to follow what’s going on with the positions, as well as interviews and videos

Audi Sport, onboard the R18s with Radio Le Mans commentary

My suggestion? find a video feed you like—and turn on Radio Le Mans and mute the video.

Go Alpine! Go Audi!

Crash, remove, and drive!

Romain Dumas crashes his Audi R18 Ultra into a tire wall, then proceeds to get out of the car and basically remove the entire front bodywork from both sides, get back in the car and drive it for 5-6 minutes back to the pits!  Amazing bit of effort and determination from Dumas!  Great to see.

As of right now, the #3 R18 is back in the race!  Many laps down….but still in the race!

Here’s the video!

foto of the day: TS030.

Toyota has a monumental task this year at Le Mans—with a brand new Le Mans team and race car, trying to fill in the vacant shoes of Peugeot.  Audi are trying to surpass Ferrari on the all-time list of Le Mans victories, amidst the most dominant period of endurance racing ever seen by any marque this side of Porsche in the late 70s/early 80s.

I really miss Peugeot, however am also very pleased that Toyota have put their guts into building a race car that will most definitely be competitive.  In early practices, it has been reported that the TS030 was only a bit over 1 second slower than the R18 e-tron quattro—-and considering all of the madness which actually goes down in the race and the traffic issues; I’d say Audi definitely have some competition this year.

That being said…The TS030 is fantastic to look at, and nicely fills in the shoes of the missing Peugeot blue and white race cars with their new blue, white, and red livery!
