Tc2000 is awesome. I think Pechito,this year, has shown the world that Argentina knows how to race.
TC2000 is fine, TC is better.

Last race of the season about to start, not the most important one. But it should be closes battle we have seen so far between the three LMP1-H teams.

Can't see from the current footage. But Webber was trying to overtake a Ferrari GTLM car. But Mark got a neckbrace and was waving. But the whole car distroyed and broken in half, was big impact.

German Eurosport commentators said that there is a "predeterminded breaking-point" just behind the monocoque. This is why it maybe looked more terrible than it actually was with the whole rear bent aside. No doubt it was a big impact and i really hope Webber is ok (he waved and Porsche says he's ok but we've seen people walking away and passing away later-so lets wait for further information).
