The wheel rolled on for a kilometre after detaching! Lynton is parked up. Out of the race. Needless to say another SC.

This will be an interesting finish. I reckon the front three cars (the American #5 BMW, the Johnson #29 Mercedes and the #6 Mercedes) are all about equal in terms of pace but the #27 will be right behind them. Can it get through them and all the traffic by the end of the race? There will only be maybe 10-15 minutes to go when the race restarts, maybe even less.

Can Sherrin do it? He is 4th atm. Or will it be an AMG day with Johnson.? I dont think Strom the current leader has the speed in the M135i. (Which is Lynton's last year car)

The Lynton car sheared its wheelnuts off. All 5. Maybe too tight? Or too much heat. Who knows. It happened. Feel sorry for them.

Green Flag 10 minutes to go.

Johnson passed the American BMW for the lead and then Sherrin got him at Hell Corner a couple of laps later. 6 minutes to go, this is tense stuff.

Iain & Grant Sherrin win the 6 Hour for BMW. The Americans Strom & Jorgensen take a fine 2nd place with a great move on Johnson using lapped traffic on the last lap. Nice finish.

Grreat final few laps. I never thought that when the Sherrin car got a DTP they could win, but I guess SC assisted and Lyntons late DNF made it all possible. The BMWs had great speed. A great drive though and good rewards after last years DNF for them. Feel sorry for Beric Lynton and Tim Leahey though.
