    A lot of close racing in the LMP2 and GT classes, collision between the P2 pole car and a GT Am car in the Porsche Curves that took both out.

    Toyota lead with Kobayashi in #7. Davidson in #8 is falling back towards Porsche #1 driven by Nick Tandy.

    And the Porsche #1 has moved ahead at the stops. So it's Toyota-Porsche-Toyota-Porsche-Toyota. With the third-placed Toyota significantly slower than the rest.

    that privateer lmp1 got to be up there as 1 of the worst le mans attempt ever been in the history. within 45secs its all over & hes effectively retired

    very warm. which is going to be interesting because might have few more electronic problems. i got to say i am hugely surprised by Kamui Kobayshi he was a talent in f1 but unpredictable as he could be fantastic like suzuka podium or on other occasions a hazard as brundle once called him kobaycrashi, as would never had said he would be currently the star driver of lmp1 class

    absolutely huge that Kobayshi the guy who was star of field this week. had victory in this grasp already has to be had 2016 dejavu as he cant get power above pit limiter 50mph & now retired

    trying to figure out whats the bigger shock a LMP2 car winning or the porsche that lost 20laps in the pits comes back to take victory

    im not feeling smug honest LOL

    unbelieveable drama at makes 2016 look tame. but i said last night like to say #1 porsche got this in the bag with 19 & 30 lap lead to nearest LMP1. but we werent even halfway anything could happen. i had sneaking worry as it was only LMP1 hadnt hit trouble. but as like 2016 when leading car broke down on final lap. 2017 proof sports is never over until fat lady sings.

    current state of LMP1
