Default Lemans 2010

Interesting race so far. Very aggressive early-on, some people knocked out. Saw a F430 knock out a Lola Radical, which sucked.

Comp. Vette is doing great leading in GT2, a GT40 is leading GT1.

The Frenchies are really kicking *** in the 908s, though S. Bourdais is out. Which also sucks.

I wish S. Pruett was driving rather than talking about driving though. There should be more U.S. drivers in the mix.

Speed camera guy got tagged in pit lane, still down right now, but he is awake and moving a bit. A mirror got taken right off of a R15 in the incident too. Ouch.

Lead GT catches fire, fills with smoke, and proceeds to pull next to a guard rail right by a fire marshall, which would have been a good move, save that the effing rail kept the driver (who has a broken leg) from opening the door. She got out the pass side, but it sure took a minute. Pretty scary.

I had a bad feeling for the race with 56 cars, and I still do. So far its tried to kill Mansfield (SP?), a journalist, and a GT driver.

A bit of porno will add some character to the somewhat dull sounding diesel P1 cars. Good call!

Shumacher qualified 11th in second round. He seems to be a bit rusty.

The streaming on Speed.com seems to be pretty good, even on my old Toughbook.

All cars today, almost! Went to the road course. Stripped my whip because it failed yesterday. Going to watch Le Mans at 6 until the fight and Gator baseball too. Gonna watch Liddell get his *** beat. Then me and my boys are doing our all night Le Mans tradition thing.

And we own GT2 right now as well

I wish I could watch the fight. I missed Evans/Jackson too. I wont be missing Lesnar CArwin in July though. Now way. That's either going to be sweet or a total blow out. Not much chance of a ho-hum mediocre fight there.

I dont know that it will, IIRC they will cover this thing to the end on the TV now. I wish it was on both, but it probably costs a ton for them to do it.
Edit:
I do know that I bought a 30 pack of Extra Gold last night. I used one can for the badd-*** stew I made, and the rest of the upper half of the box is now empty save for two cans. So I guess that means I am on beer number 12.........and now beer number 11. Go Lemans!

Edit Eidt:

My math makes no sense. I am not drinking my way to less consumption. I am on beer number 13, not 11. Stay tuned. I will update through the night.
