    Really? Might I ask why?

    No slight intended for Woulter but a first-up google of 'amazing car picture' produced this

    That's a rather big off...

    Anyway, the Quail got his brand-spanking new digital cable box hooked up, and after ****ing with my modem for almost an hour, it's working too, although not very well.

    So, be prepared for coverage. In a style true to my American heritage, I know next to nothing about the inner workings of any of the teams and I'm going to actually try to write the thing up based on gut feelings and my indefatigueable sense of self-importance.

    I haven't had time this week to figure any of the team dynamics or storylines out, what with me working my ass off for pennies per minute and being sick Thursday and having horrifying recurring fever-dreams about being back in high school; horrified about the thought of going through it all over again and not knowing who anyone was or where to find my classes.

    My fever broke today while I was at work, I threw up in the company bathroom, and I feel fit as a fiddle now. So there you go. It's on.

    I hope you all enjoy. Next post from me will be at the start.

    How did you get those pictures?

    Anyway, I wonder what the hell the Peugeots are up to. Are they going slow to conserve the car or are they just off the pace of Audi? Anyways, an interesting 2 on 2 battle in LMP1. The Oreca Saleens also are a bit of a conundrum; where is all the pace they showed in qualy? Are they not living up to their expectations?

    Not only that but it seems a Pescarolo is between the leading Audi and both Peugeots. However #1 Audi is fifth behind all. I think it's still too early to tell.

    F1 is good. You want to keep track?

    Times

    Radio

    The combination of the two give you a good idea of what is going on.

    By the way Dino Scuderia, SPEED only has 16.5 hours of the actual race, the extra hour is a half hour pre-race and half hour post-race.

    What a scam.

    Better than nothing still

    And the Peugeots seem to be closing on the leading Audi.
