F1Show 053: 24 Hours of Le Mans Special

Somehow we felt it would be a good idea to follow the 24 hour race in real time, to share the sleepless experience with the engineers. Hear our series of quick updates throughout the 24 hours.

  1. Great show guys. I love this race every year.

    Do you guys watch Top Gear they have a 24 hours race show its was epic but the show is great.

  2. Hey guys- I was at Le Mans (got back last night) – I only managed about 20 of the 24 so well done. Couple of interesting rumours running around – mainly centered on Ferrari maybe leaving F1 and goin into sports cars! – Montezemola (can’t be bothered to check spelling) started the race, and in the GT2 category – Ferrari wiped the floor with Porsche!

    One interesting thing was how different the winning Peugeot was to the Audi and the Lola/Astons – maybe some lessons learned for F1 there – 3 manufacturers (2 “factory” teams, and Lola/Aston) building cars to the same regs for the same race – with different fuel types, numbers of cylinders etc.

    As you said on the Turkey podcast following my “RIP” post – maybe these new teams will help change F1 for the better – I really hope they do, I don’t want more cars that make up the numbers on the grid – I want 4 or 5 manufactures have a shot at each round and I would love to see different solutions to the same problems. You are right – there’s hope.

  3. Great show and a great idea. I never knew White Castle was open 24 hours a day. Eating there at 5 a.m. is never a good idea though.
