I don't mind too much. Garage 56 should be reserved for the projcets that are truly out of the leftfield, and if there aren't any proposals, it doesn't get used.

On the other hand, I can't deny wanting both the DeltaWing and the ZEOD-RC to succeed.

If you find a Puffalump passed out in a field somewhere, please feed it fries with mayo.

The Nissans seem really slow. That's disappointing. :(

Because they're basically driving without their hybrid system, because none of it is working ... shame. But to be expected, since they already said this beforehand.

None anymore...
Practice now live: http://www.sportingvideo.tv/20150610/vv5578a5067ce199.44471679-1089383.html

[edit]
The acceleration and grip of the LMP1-cars is nuts - when they come up behind GTE-cars around the corner which aren't slow they are just eating them up in half a second or so. :blink: There was a replay of a Porsche 919 in the Porsche curves and it literally jumped about 20? laterally in the corner while doing 200+ kph...

I'm so annoyed. I was planning on sitting at a bar all day drinking and watching the race on a big screen. Just checked the TV listings for this year

Saturday, June 13 ? 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (FOX Sports 2)
Saturday, June 13 ? 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (FOX Sports 1)
Saturday, June 13 ? 11:00 PM to 12:30 AM (FOX Sports 2)
Sunday, June 14 ? 3:30 AM to 7:30 AM (FOX Sports 1)
Sunday, June 14 ? 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM (FOX Sports 2)
Sunday, June 14 ? 9 AM to 9:30 AM (FOX Sports 1)
Thats literally useless. What is FS1 and FS2 covering the rest of Saturday? FIFA Women's Soccer World Cup, NASCAR Qualifying (yes, qualifying, not even an actual race), UEFA Euro Soccer qualifier (again.... a qualifier), more FIFA, more NASCAR.

I don't understand how the most famous once-a-year race is getting cut for qualifiers. Was there really that few people watching last year?

For reference, this was last year's schedule

Saturday, June 14 ? 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM (FOX Sports 1)
Saturday, June 14 ? 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (FOX Sports 2)
Saturday, June 14 ? 6:30 PM to 1:00 AM (FOX Sports 2)
Saturday, June 14 ? 1:00 AM to 7:30 AM (FOX Sports 1)
Sunday, June 15 ? 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM (FOX Sports 2)
Literally flag to flag (minus 1.5 hours in the early evening on Saturday)

Crazy Russian, got your TV hooked up to your PC?

If so:
http://henno.info/

Got it from /r/wec, apparently the stream even has its own sub. Multiple stream sources with IRC chat and broadcasting in English from the official WEC stream and British EuroSport.

:)
