Corvettes posted 1st and 3rd fastest GT2 times after the Free Practice today.

Interesting thing, the GT2 Corvette posted a 4:00.888 and the GT1 Corvette posted a 3:59.752.

Last year I believe the GT1 Corvettes were running 3:42-50. Big difference this year. But it is just the first practice.

Easy. You've got Bondurant instructors driving both cars.

I'm loving this thread, thanks for all of the updates, everyone!

Looks like it's going to be a Battle with Risi this year. Surprising, the Flying Lizard is a few seconds off the pace.

Risi is the defending GT2 Champion at Le Mans so this should be exciting.

Rain is expected for the rest of qualifying, so the qualifying order as of now is probably what the starting order will be.

Also for LMP1, Audi is way off the pace of Puegeot and has admitted they are slower. They will be hoping for some bad luck for the French cars.

I agree and I would like one, but I just order this a few weeks ago.

Here's an in-car video of the #64 doing a lap. It's not a hot lap though, he was bedding the brakes.

Good interview with Oliver Gavin after the 3rd and final qualifying session. The whole team seems very excited.

CLICK HERE

Friday will just be the Pit Walk, and Driver's Parade.

Qualifying order is set. Corvette's 1-2 (Unofficial), leading the pack. The Risi Ferrari that was on poll had some Tech issue and may have to start from the back. We should find out tonight or tomorrow morning.
