cor123 has an excellent of resources here but I do want to put in a special plug for Andy Blackmore's Spotter Guide—I find the race essentially unwatchable  without it.

The entire race is on Velocity this year, if you are in the United States.

Good morning, all.

Hunkered down with about half an hour to go.

Rafael Nadal is the honorary starter.

In LMP1, the race is Toyota's to lose—their two factory cars are the only ones with manufacturer support.

Cruel and heartless, Marcus. It is rather depressing to think that the lasting overall memory for most of the C7 ZR1 may be that crash. Such a strange fate for such a beautiful car.

Ivelis' immediate comment; "cold tires."

Reuss is a car guy—he helped our Corvette Museum tour group secure nice grandstand tickets at Le Mans in 2016, so this view is thanks to him:

The biggest story, of course, is Toyota finally winning overall after years of horrible luck. Yes, they had little competition, but it is not their fault that all the other manufacturers in LMP1 "went home."

In GTE Pro, I think it was the same story as the Rolex this year—the winners have absolutely no problems. Even five years ago, you could have a minor issue and still win. In 2018, you'd better not put a wheel wrong or you are not going to be on the podium.

Congratulations to the European Porsche teams—the pink pig livery will be immortalized yet again. I loved how they were all-in on the retro theme—even having fake brick facings in their garages to make them look a little more old school.

I'm proud of the Corvette Racing team. In particular, the #63 worked for that 5th place after dropping as low as 10th. Magnussen drove like a banshee in the late night/early morning hours—perhaps one of the "old men" in Corvette Racing has some years left in him.
