Interesting battle between the Toyota and Porsche shaping up.

First ever Safetycar/reduced speed start at Le Mans...

Can we consider this as the first standing start since 69? :-)

That part was pretty cool actually. :)

Not sure what happened at the end but you have to feel for Toyota, the guys have no luck at Le Mans at all.

I kinda hoped Toyota would win.
Felt real sorry for them to lose it in the last 5mins. of the race, what are the odds? :faint:
This race has it written all over it: To finish first, first you need to finish..

Big shame IMO for the drivers of the Toyota: Buemi, Davidson, Nakajima. I would love to see a 'jilted F1' crew win it (maybe swap Kobayashi for Nakajima?), and apparently Davidson did a great triple stint in the night to win his team 1 minute and move from 3rd to 1st. I heard the call to take it easy with about 30 mins to go; I thought they must have it in the bag now, they could've lost a few seconds a lap and still won it.

Even tho I root for Porsche, it was terrible to see #5 Toyota losing the win with 5 minutes to go...that little off by Kobayashi in the #6 Toyota arguably costed them the win as well, in hindsight, having to run with that damage...

Interesting race overal, typical Le Mans drama! ;)
