    The DeltaWing feed listed at the link above was supposed to be an in-car but it looks like it's just a garage view now. The in-car cam was a last minute addition but the car had electrical problems during the warmup and they decided it was telemetry-related, caused by the camera, so they eliminated it.

    Anyone not watching at the moment, there's been a huge crash between one of the front running Toyota hybrids and a Ferrari.

    They actually are calling it "off" rather than "out" as the driver (Motoyama) has taken out the on-board tool kit and is still trying to fix the car well enough to get it back to the pits for, they hope, real repairs.

    I was out for a bit and missed the incident, who was the Toyota driver who did the deed?

    By the way, while out I noticed Radio Le Mans is being broadcast live on satellite radio XM 208.

    Understatement of the race: "Seeing a set of headlight coming at you during a race is a bad sign and something to look out for". :lol:

    Nakajima it was... Sadly he not only took out the Deltawing, he suffered his own teams chances of winning... Unbelievable that he was making a move like that, that early in a 24 hour race...

    Ok, now the DeltaWing is officially "out." Too much damage to get it back into condition to limp back to the pits and officially retired by the team.
