If anyone's interested in watching the remainder of the 24 hour Toyota Benefit race at LeMans it's live on the Quest channel available through Freeview and Sky.

At the moment the 2 Toyotas are a lap apart and 6 laps clear of their nearest rivals so it's their race to lose.

The best 2 works Porsches are running 25th/26th and are 3rd and 4th in the GTE-Pro class a lap down on the lead 488 and Corvette.

I'll be switching between the Croft BTCC / Carrera Cup meeting (ITV4) and LeMans for most of the day.

As I typed the above the GTE Corvette hit problems so 911 RSRs are running 2nd and 3rd in class about 90 seconds behind the leading 488.

So as expected an easy 1-2 for Toyota.

I feel sorry for the #7 crew who lead for nearly the whole race only to have a couple of tyre issues in the last hour and lose the race by 17 seconds to the #8 car.

A respectable 2nd and 3rd in class for the 911RSRs giving them 21st & 22nd overall.

Amazing that 50 of the 61 starters finished the race.

Quest coverage has been quite good all weekend, although not as informative as Radio Le Mans.

Disappointed that the hydrogen car didn't get to compete.

I watched most of the race on Quest TV, the start and the first couple of hours, then found a good live feed on t`internet until it was back on Quest overnight and for the finish Grin

What a surprise Toyota won, didn`t see that coming eh!

One for the conspiracy theorists. Apparently car #7 had a puncture but had to stop a second time a lap after as the pit crew changed the wrong tyre. Surprised

No conspiracy, they just use the same TPMS batteries everyone else uses....
