Thanks for the link!!! I understood "onboard camera" , but the video was great SLS blow-up was sad

Thanks again

Speed tv could learn from this broadcast

Yes to bad about the SLS which looked like a steam iron, but did you what happened to the 911 which was running 3 rd on the last few laps. It appeared to slow down at the finish line in the last few seconds trying to crawl across the finish line in third when it was struck hard in the rear end by a much slower car and stopped running putting it out of "running at the finish" and surrendering third place to one of the other SLS's.

The 911 crew went a little nuts. From podium to junk yard.

Coverage was excellent and compared to Speed Coverage of Sebring and LeMans you knew what cars were in the lead. They seemed concentrate on the make of the autos as opposed to concentrating on the drivers as does Speed TV.

Scary when you think about it, the R8's seems to manage it much "easier" than the SLS's did - I can't wait to see if MB (or anyone?) lets us know what caused the magic smoke to be released from the SLS...

Chances are you will find out on that side of the pond and we won't hear about it over here. Very few people in USA even knew there was a 24hr race yesterday let alone live coverage.

It looked more like steam to me than smoke

True - did you have a link to a video that show that part? I did some googleing, and didn't find one?
