Le Mans 16 Hour Report (updated at 18 hours)

No.64 Corvette leads from no.63 Corvette and no.77 Porsche.  The brilliant crew on the 64 car take a slightly extended stop to change brake pads.  Then there suddenly a problem for the 63 car.  Antonio Garcia has stopped on the run down to Indianapolis.  An engine problem has brought their race to an end.

Then it’s the 64 car’s turn to strike problems.  As a prototype car overtook Manu Collard in the Porsche curves he was spun into the barriers – a heavy impact which has created significant damage to the rear end of the car.

He bravely gets the car going again and makes his way slowly back to the pits andf the crew set about repairing it – but it will put the car some way down the field.

Olly sets off again, they lost about 7 laps and are now down in 5th.  Still 6 hours to go ……………..
