The endurance season is back with a bang, with ELMS for the 4hrs of Silverstone (today) and the 6hrs of the WEC tomorrow.

Slightly damp for WEC practise this morning, which dried up for the qualifying at lunchtime. Holy moly the LMP1s are impressive. cant wait to see them from the Maggotts and Becketts complex tomorrow. gonna be a fantastic race. I'll post up pictures tomorrow of the WEC Sunday, or maybe Monday (depending on time)

ELMS had qualifying and race today, so get to see the whole event in 1 day. For the US opponaughts, Tracy Krohn has brought his Ligier Judd over from TUSCC, and had a great team race up to 4th. The end of the race was a sprint between the two Gibsons (zyteks) and the new Oreca 05, which was absolutely enthralling to watch. If you've got 10 minutes, search out the end of the race. really exciting stuff with the three cars closing on each other at an impressive rate. High quality awesome racing - always good.
