ma.
Anyone else still pissed about last years race?
GTLM with out BMW. Corvette and especially our beloved Ford GT just isn’t the same level of enjoyment

The whole BoP thing has destroyed racing.

Yes, and congrats to AMR and Multimatic Motorsports' Harry Tincknell on GTE-Pro win. I caught a couple minutes. Still one of the best places on earth.

It was so strange not seeing any crowds.

Caught several moments on radio Lemans. Lots of interesting info on the future and what's ahead.
It was truly strange with no crowds but still a good race.
Keating was racing and it was mentioned how his AM win
in the GT was stripped away on a minor technicality, and how he responded as the true sportsman
he is, truly the gentleman racer.

+1, still one of the best places on earth!

Racing to the very end! Odd without spectators.

Loved the British announcers! Very knowledgeable and sharp witted humor.

I hadn't heard much about 2021 til this broadcast. Proposed "merger" of ACO, WEC & IMSA. 12 manufacturer's possibly entering cars. Semi-common rules. Entries at LeMans, Daytona, Sebring and other world events will be allowed, with preparation to "home series" rules at all events.

A major push to support amateur and non-factory teams. Which are the "true backbone of endurance racing's future".

The future sounds promising.

Some news and rumor from Lemans.

1. Hypercar in 2021!?!?

2. Peugeot & Alpine/Renault return to the top class. Peugeot and now Toyota both have 3 overall wins, should make for a good competitive rivalry between the two.

3. A major remodel of pit lane, including additional Hydrogen fueling stations added.

4. Europe looking at Hydrogen Fuel instead of electrification for future vehicles. Ease of using existing infrastructure as one reason.

5. Rebellion Racing to quit racing at Lemans.

And 😆

6. Free Ham and Cheese Croissants w/coffee, and unlimited bottles of Champagne for all Americans attending next years race.

I guess it was AMs turn to win. The BOP adjustments on the Fezzas and Porkers were intense
