This link shows all the driver line ups WEC reveals 28-car entry list for 2017
Kubica and Barrichello to contest Le Mans
In the last 15 minutes Buemi was 1.8 sec behind the leading Porsche and had to throw it up the inside the Loop to get ahead of Hartley
6 hours is a long time for a motor race but somehow the rule makers for the WEC have managed to equalise the car performance in such a way so as to bring very different power systems close to one another and give close racing throughout. LPM2 was super close but much faster than last year. Oh, and the leading guy in the GTE race played synchronised car dancing on the final lap.
Glad Lopez was OK though, that looked ike a really nasty full-frontal impact... couldn't believe he managed to bring it back to the pits.
In LMP1 Jani and Lotterer are on pole for Porsche followed by 3 Toyota's, as they get ready for Le Mans. The Bykolles, non-hybrid LMP1 car is way back amongst the LMP2 cars.
Alex Lynn and Pierre Thiriet have the LMP2 pole for G-Drive. Bird and Rigon have the LMPGTE Pro pole in their Ferrari and Dalla Lana, Lama and Lauda have put their Aston Martin at the front of the LMPGTE Am class. The Manor LPM2 car starts right at the back after Vitaly Petrov binned it in qualifying.
I was really enjoying the battle between the two Ferraris while the Ford GTs tried to recover.
Who's broadcasting it this year, are Eurosport still doing it?...
heard a unconfirmed rumour that itv4 might show some of it
radio and text commentary of the Le Mans Test Day today. Two four-hour sessions.
Also, the full entry list with complete driver line-ups (until they change!) is here.
Out of interest, here's what's happened to the 'refugee' drivers who raced for Audi last year:
André Lotterer: LMP1 for Porsche

Marcel Fässler: GTE-Pro for Corvette & Blancpain GT3 for Audi (R8)
