Latest post of the previous page:

Yeah they said they would have the two Japanese drivers in for the finish..... still two hours left for their curse to re occur, though I hope not. They are probably in full cruise mode now.

Bourdais was actually quite angry after that. Mako was weaving a lot.

The #8 Toyota is apparently going to get a penalty of some kind for spinning the wheels in the pitstop.

Yeah one of the moves was a bit tight but it was good to watch. Probably just as well they pitted when they did and Bourdais got out as it would likely have ended in tears if they had continued as they were..
As I mentioned SeeBass managed to get in a dig at the BoP.

Two hour to go and we could have a Japanese champ? This is great! (Kobayashi from hot dog champ to LeMans champ?)
But, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of contest in LMP1. The GT battle is good.

This race has reminded of the years Audi barely had any competition.

While I write that, #7 is in trouble!

Considering #8 has a 12-lap lead over the first non-Toyota, I think they can afford to take it pretty easy from here on.
