24 hrs at Le Mans

This is an awesome form of racing!
Any one else watching?

Looks like Aston Martin isn't doing as well in the beginning as expected, but this is just the beginning, and so much can change in 24 hrs.

I think this is the coolest race i have ever watched.

When it gets dark, and the times it rains ,it must take so much skill and concentration they must sweat bullets to keep it together

You got that one right. I think night racing is almost beautiful. The Drivers are profound, and the machines they are operating are such precision.

Last night, on the other hand, I attended a competition of a different kind, and had some great fun but not of the same caliber.............Combine Demolition Derby! That was a hoot!

Talk about two different worlds:

Audi wins with diesel power :
There's been a lot of criticism of low sulfer diesel fuel here. Even plain misrepresentation. Wait until we get the type of diesels here that they have now in Europe. They start instantly, aren't noisy, have plenty of power and get great mileage on, in Europe, cheaper fuel.
Another plus, the particulates, the biggest pollutant from diesel, of pure bio-diesel are completely bio-degrdable.

Hey, Stop picking on me!
I'm just a lowly country girl from Michigan.

But I have a winning smile. Does that count for something?

Sure, but scroll up above your pic to the top ones, then look for the well-dressed one with the glass in his hand...

If a person were to officially ask a moderator to edit a thread, the moderator would have to oblige.

However, it would only be done if it doesn't disturb the flow of the thread.

Do I hear such a request?

Aren't the ones that are here now compromised for our high sulfer fuels?
In 1999 I ran into an engineer in a pub in Doolan Ireland who was working on this project. He would travel to wherever one of the test vehicles was, whenever there was a problem.
