I just read that Kobiashi in a Toyota P1 has broken the lap record by nearly 2sec, and Q2 isn't over yet...

Once again the BOP has required the Corvettes to decrease the intake size. It gets smaller every year. I'm surprised they're not required to suck air through a soda straw.

Refresh my memory, who did Kobayashi drive for in f-1? I know he had a big set on him, no fear at all.

Regarding the question of where/how to watch, you can buy the race via the 25 hour app or on the FIAWEC website. Note if you follow the enire WEC season you can also purchase the season including Le Mans via that app ($35). On this weekend the app (for some reason) converts to the 24 hour app. The app and website can be a little confusing.. but once you figure them out you can have the live race (no commercials) on TV and use 4 other devices for live scoring, feeds etc. IMO way better than TV coverage... but not as good as motoGP app. All is streamed.. so need internet connection and way to stream/hook to TV unless you want to watch on that specific device.

Le Mans 2017
Lifted from blackflag.jalopnik.

Full article (w/ the half dozen or so links missing from the snip below, and more): Your Guide To Enjoying All 24 Hours Of Le Mans In 2017

How Do I Watch The Race?

Letís get the most obvious question out of the way: how do you tune into the race itself? Fortunately, you donít even need a TV, although the online stream is a bit fiddlier than it has been in yearsí past.

Hereís how you can tune into the race if youíre watching on TV in the U.S., starting on Saturday, June 17 (all times Eastern):

Fox Sports 1: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (Sat.)

Fox Sports Go only: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Sat.) 

Fox Sports 2: 1:00 p.m. (Sat.) - 1:00 a.m. (Sun.)
Fox Sports 1: 1:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. (Sun.)


May other sports have mercy on this broadcast and not preempt it a bunch of times like last year. Alternately, the race will be streamed in its entirety online on Fox Sports Go if youíd rather spare yourself the channel changes and likelihood of Foxís main TV feed screwing over racing fans yet again. 


The World Endurance Championship itself has a paid, commercial-free live stream here (which is also accessible on the WEC app for iOS and Android) of both the qualifying sessions and the race itself. However, itís been more finicky to use than in years past for some reason, requiring me to mess around with different browser settings before it would ever open every time Iíve tried to use it this year. If you go this route, allow some extra time to tinker with browser settings or restart your computer in case itís not working for you.

You want to watch a few onboards, even if itís just for a little while. Itís completely surreal to see these cars speed through zones of complete darkness late at night, with only their own and their competitorsí lights in some parts on track.

Several teams will be running onboard live-streams, both through the WECís streaming site/app as well as on their own. The Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Team will have their own onboards from all four Ford GTs and garage cam on YouTube.

Le Mansí official live timing screen is here, and a fan has made a more detailed live timing screen with sector splits here. If you just need audio, Radio Le Mans will have coverage here.

If youíre interested in any of the other events happening at the circuit this weekend such as the Road to Le Mans or Carrera Cup support races, r/WEC is a fantastic resource, and the full on-track schedule can be found here.
