Yeah it seems like a transmission problem or a broken driveshaft after a kerb hop..
Dont tell me Whincup is going to win by virtue of no one else left.

TBH I kind of want to see him win just because it would be ridiculous to have Kenny Habul winning a major race :haha:

I knew that leading Audi was going to snag something at some point when I saw him leave no more than a hair's gap to the wall through the Cutting while the second place car would leave atleast a few inches of room. You just can't drive that way every lap around the mountain.

Just over 45 mins to go, and it will all be down to who has how much fuel and who has the best rubber.
Regardless we will likely end up with a very unexpected winner to what we may have though 11 hours ago.

#911 Porsche (Makowiecki) pits and Frijns leads in the #37 Audi. Whincup 2nd 4.5 secs back.Dumas in the #911 Manthey car now. Great stop no tyres. They can definitely get to the end on fuel. I have lost track of who needs to stop and who might need to. :whistling:
