    2017 24 Hours of Le Mans

    Green flag at 9am EST. I can't believe it's already time for the biggest race of the year.

    I'll probably watch on FS1/FS2/EuroSport streaming.

    yes, I can't wait. A couple of teams and manufacturers are going to be streaming too, like the Corvette race team, Porsche, i think even Ford.

    Been watching all of the practice and qualifying on the WEC app this week. My VP has been teasing every day this week about using all of our bandwidth - even on days when nothing was happening.

    I plan to have FS1/2 on the tube, WEC on the tablet, laptop on Corvette stream and maybe another computer on some other stream. Might turn off FS1 sound and go with either Radio LeMans or just use the WEC app - at least until Justin Bell makes his appearance and does his walkabout Sunday morning. Lots of good stuff to follow this year - I hope Corvette can overcome their last minute BOP adjustment and take a class win. I wish they had a Garage 56 entry too - I've always enjoyed those.

    Anyone have a link for Corvette streaming? I've got Ford at the moment but would really like the Vette

    Thankfully race is being streamed on YouTube, it's not on any of my cable channels.

    Just listen to the sound of the engine. Isn't that the answer? If you don't understand it, it's not my problem". alex zanardi

    I've been watching the streaming on the FIA WEC 24 Hours of Le Mans app. Has the best commentary, IMO.

    If you want to pony up the $10, the WEC app is good too. Using the same feed as Fox and Eurosport plus live timing, track map, good diversity for in car cameras (LMP1 Porsches and Toyotas, 3 LMP2 cars, 4 Ford GTs, a pair of 911s and an Aston). Good commentary crew - almost on par with Radio LeMans. Allan McNish is really good and takes no prisoners. Leena Gade has come through a few times to needle McNish, which has been fun too.

    Toyota just can't buy a break this year. We might seen a LMP2 take the overall - Senna and Prost leading LMP2 right now - wouldn't that be something.

    2 Toyota's out.... #9 I guess it was drivers fault for going too fast? maybe broke some hydraulic lines, and before it had a electric motor failure..... Toyota and Honda don't get along with Hybrid technology and racing

    Sunrise at LeMans. Really pretty shots as they roll up through the Porsche curves through to Tertre Rouge.

    Found another stream - Ford Performance. I'm liking the garage cam - great sound as the cars go by - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byfmOYqaO5U

    Wow - great finish! Sad to see the Vette lose out in that fashion, but am very happy for Porsche!

    That GTE Pro battle for the class win was awesome.

    a fellow racer was the reason Toyota #7 retired on the 24hr. It had clutch problems and when waiting for the red light at the end of the pits, one driver made a sign, Kobayashi thought it was a marshall and was leaving when the team told him to stop again. the clutch was overheated, and that is it.....http://www.autosport.com/news/report...toyota-failure
