Well you can't change the engine during the race anyway.
Lol @ the people on youtube saying it was Davidson's fault

Also:

Quote from Youtube :6.8 on the Webber Scale

From Twitter:

"Anthony Davidson has tweeted from the hospital that he has a broken back from the earlier incident in the No.8 Toyota"



-edit-
Seems it was posted earlier, must have missed it, my bad.

I think the tweet is joke/exaggeration:

Anthony Davidson was taken to the circuit medical centre following his accident during the Le Mans 24 Hours. Doctors at the circuit have confirmed that Anthony is suffering from shock and back pain, however there are no signs of any injuries and he is walking and talking with no problems. He will be taken to a local hospital for precautionary checks but the team is relieved and happy to hear he is okay. Further updates will follow in due course.

Wish that car had some better luck. They "should" be in 4th right now.
Safety car, not sure what for because I only just turned it on.

Big crash of a single car, which even climbed up the to the catch fence down in porsche curves. Also there was a stationary Aston Martin.
any vid of the big crash? I saw the stationary audi.

SPEED must have shown replays, Eurosport didn't yet. But ACO just said that the driver is ok.

Yeah, only place I saw it on. Basically lost it in the porsche curves (the first of the double left). Seemed to be a Porsche losing control on entry (or something broke) and he hit the wall with the left side of the car. Car hit hard enough to lift it abit and clip the catch fence. Quite a lot of debris over the fence and on the grass/track. Came to a rest next to the wall.

BTW, when I say clip the fence, I don't mean like the whole car, I just mean the front went up barely above the concrete wall and clip the fence.
Oh wow. I just woke up and Audi no. 1 in a bit of trouble.
Lolwut. What's flammable at the front? Fuel tank?? :O
Decided to do a small onboard of Audi while the sun comes up. Might have took a bit of a nap on accident and ended up with a 4 hour recording. Oh well, caught all the #1 drama with the onboard.

Uploading to YouTube with time codes to all the stuff that happen. Will just take another nap and hopefully be up for the finish (if my alarm wakes me).
Offtrack air time in the LMP2 meanwhile.
