These are not going to be the most exiting Sebring 12 hours ever, but it's not looking that bad. Lack of Audi makes it loose it's salt, and overall despite Peugeot and Aston presence, the P1 class won't be the center of interest this time. GT2 seems to be the class to watch, although I fear that Speed TV's feed will indeed show an exclusive GT2 race, as they tends to do everytime...

The intersport car won't be replaced. They've withrawn their p1 entry.
On endurance info there's an interview of Peugeot's Bruno Famin where he says he's surprised to see the Aston car has come to Sebring with the Le Mans aero package! That sounds crazy indeed, and explain why they struggle to do a competitive chrono since the begining of the week.
On the other hand, running such discharged aero provided them with the best top speed (largely), so they will be extremely hard to pass. But with Peugeot coming once again "to prepare Le Mans" and Aston not giving themselves the means to win, I feel Drayson's the only P1 entry worth cheering for... With Pirro at the wheel they look good, and have shown credible pace.

Sebring being Sebring, we shouldn't burry the three P2 cars, and even if three cars sounds lame, at least they're three different beasts, entered by three credible teams.

I wonder if the LMPC will be as interesting as they look. They're own battle will be very close obviously, but will they manage to be a threat to P2? I'm looking forward to their fuel and tyre consumption relatively to the other classes.

Yeah, the live timing has choosen the worse moment to stop working. It had been ok all week, but it's always when it matters...

And now the Speed Stream has died too ](*,) Last year it was perfect... sigh

I can only get the "waiting..." screen, be it on IE, FF, chrome or Opera :cry:
Sometimes after a ctrl+f5 I can get as far as the "loading live stream" screen, but it never try buffering. 5 mn to go now.

At least the live timing is back online...

Two cars were deemed illegal at the scrutineering after qualifying, the BMW M3 #90 - best GT qualifier -(failed the airbox test) and the FLM09 #36 (below minimum weight).

Being just the qualifying, it's of little importance, but it's interesting to see that Porsche seems in even better position in the GT's to keep their traditional domination at Sebring.

Be carefull folks that the exact schedule can be tricky to get right since our american friends switched to daylight saving time the last week end.

So the usual 6hours delay between Sebring and Paris has become 5hours. But as my country switch to daylight saving times during this night, it means for me the race will start at 3.30 p.m and end at 4.30 a.m ...

Anyway this means the start of the race is at 2.30 p.m GMT, in half an hour that is!

Enjoy the race. :wink:

someone posted that one on the ten tenth forum:

:arrow: http://www.garthytv.com/flust-2.php

It works currently.

I've been told also that the speed stream might work periodically during the race. I remember last year there was a full race stream but it was only from a Rahal BMW onboard, witch was a pretty view, but made it unpossible to understand the race...

EDIT: Ups, you were faster to find it! :)
