Latest post of the previous page:

IDEC Cars #17 & #28 to start from pitlane +1 lap

With the accidents to both cars restricting their running and not running qualifying or P3 the Stewards have ruled they must start from pitlane after the field have completed one lap.

The #17 was repaired but the #28 was rebuilt using a new tub.

Which gives the following starting grid: 59 cars to start.

Warm up on now... and the track is damp but drying. Only a short warm up and not long before the race but we have had a couple of off track excursions. Hopefully no one is going to do anything silly with little time for repairs.

Most birthing rooms have a TV. (We had the Ohio State game on during my daughter's birth. My wife is an alumna.)

Just saying...


Congratulations man! Welcome to one the best adventures in life!

#36 Signatec Alpine already in the garage with engine cover up after 1 lap. Horrible way to start.

Yeah the Ferrari lost it all on its own, and then recovered and drove off with no damage. Shame for the Porsche, maybe they can get it back to the pits and back on track.
