    Darn FS1, guide says 24hr Le Mans, but still has golf on - better not miss start of race!

    EDIT: FYI for USA viewers - pre race is now on FS2, not positive but think it will switch to FS1 soon, maybe at start of race?

    There's a strong chance of a red flag here.

    not yet. As the shower cross the track, best bet keep the cars rolling to "clear" a dry line.

    This really is quite ridiculous. Okay, they don't want to lose any cars early but this isn't indy cars... are they waiting for slick conditions?

    Porsche has the engine over the rear axle, helps in these conditions. Thats why they want wet/damp race.

    Ferrari and Ford racing in 2016 with 2016 reg cars. Ford played games, so should be penalised for that. Vettes, Porsche and AMR should moan about how fast we and Ford are due to fact being designed to 2016 regs.

    Not to put a dampener on things but it's raining from Porsche Curves all the way to the pit lane. Let's hope it blows over... #LeMans24

    just looking at the lap times and sector times, #92 starting to slow. The dry track is coming back to us.
