We just went green again after a yellow because one of the Ferraris (I think the #63) accidently punted Castroneves in his Oreca #6.

Andy Blackmore's awesome spotter's guide is here.

Another caution with about 1:20 in. Than, yet another yellow at about 1:40 as the Ligier #52 hits a gravel trap just wrong and goes airborne into a tire barrier. Guitierrez is okay—car is trashed.

Another yellow as one of the Oreca #13 prototype has crashed with the Oreca #38 prototype challenge car. Petit Le Mans has become somewhat of a crashfest for the prototype cars.

The #4 Corvette goes off in the chicane and collects one of the banners and a ton of grass. In the pits to get things fixed and remove the banner.

The Fords faded at the end. Penske finished strong. More thoughts at some point.
