So far the 919s in LMP1 have been way off the pace set by Toyota. Hope they're sandbagging.

Saw that. I would think they would temper their enthusiasm given how they imploded last year with 2 minutes left.....

Well,they are very hopeful this year with the new Prius they've built. I hope Porsche proves them wrong!

It's about endurance not laptime

The RSR is the best sounding car in the entire field. The worst could be the 488


LMP1 is bonkers. Porsche is grumbling that Toyota is using illegal diffuser stuff in their cars. Toyota just has a bunch more top end power down the straights and VMax about 15km/h higher.

LMP2 is bananas fast. They're doing times closes enough to the old Audi LMP1 cars that it is almost comical.

I'd like to see Ford to do well for nostalgia sake. Agree about the RSR sound.

Remember what the car does in qualifying doesn't mean it will survive the race. The only way to win is to finish the race. I'm curious to see how this race goes - last year was pure heart break for Toyota.

Yes but as one wag put it "its the sound of losing" brutal but also most likely correct

LM Q1
32. Thiim/Sorensen/Stanaway GBR Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE 3m 53. 117s GTE Pro
33. Rigon/Bird/Molina ITA AF Corse Ferrari 488 GT 3m 53.235s GTE Pro
34. Calado/Pier Guidi/Rugolo ITA AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE 3m 53.123s GTE Pro
35. Turner/Adam/Serra GBR Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE 3m 53.296 GTE Pro
36. Priaulx/Tincknell/Derani USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK Ford GT 3m 54.118s GTE Pro
37. Christensen/Estre/Werner GER Porsche GT Team Porsche 911 RSR 3m 54.243s GTE Pro
38. Lietz/Makowiecki/Pilet GER Porsche GT Team Porsche 911 RSR 3m 54.564s GTE Pro
39. Gavin/Milner/Fassler USA Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R 3m 54.876s GTE Pro
40. Magnussen/Garcia/Taylor USA Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R 3m 55.047s GTE Pro
41. Hand/Muller/Kanaan USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA Ford GT 3m 55.059s GTE Pro
42. Dalla Lana/Lamy/Lauda GBR Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE 3m 55.134s GTE Am
43. Briscoe/Westbrook/Dixon USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA Ford GT 3m 55.553s GTE Pro
44. Ried/Dienst/Cairoli GER Dempsey-Proton Porsche 911 RSR 3m 55.692s GTE Am
45. Johnson/Mucke/Pla USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK Ford GT 3m 55.803s GTE Pro

The RSRs are off the pace as are the LMP1 cars. see below for Q2

32. Turner/Adam/Serra GBR Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE 3m 51.860s GTE Pro
33. Calado/Pier Guidi/Rugolo ITA AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE 3m 52.087s GTE Pro
34. Thiim/Sorensen/Stanaway GBR Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE 3m 52. 117s GTE Pro
35. Vilander/Fisichella/Kaffer USA Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE 3m 52.138s GTE Pro
36. Christensen/Estre/Werner GER Porsche GT Team Porsche 911 RSR 3m 52.177s GTE Pro
37. Rigon/Bird/Molina ITA AF Corse Ferrari 488 GT 3m 52.235s GTE Pro
38. Gavin/Milner/Fassler USA Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R 3m 52.391s GTE Pro
39. Briscoe/Westbrook/Dixon USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA Ford GT 3m 52.496s GTE Pro
40. Johnson/Mucke/Pla USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK Ford GT 3m 52.558s GTE Pro
41. Lietz/Makowiecki/Pilet GER Porsche GT Team Porsche 911 RSR 3m 52.593s GTE Pro
42. Hand/Muller/Kanaan USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA Ford GT 3m 52.626s GTE Pro
43. Magnussen/Garcia/Taylor USA Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R 3m 52.886s GTE Pro
44. Priaulx/Tincknell/Derani USA Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK Ford GT 3m 53.059s GTE Pro

Personally, I'm more interested in the GTE Am series.

Overall, Porsche will win the marketing but lose the race. They'll post a pic of a 1, 2, 3 on various web sites - podium finish for Porsche (but it will be in the Cup series lol)
