Once again. It's that time of the year for me to stock up on provisions (ie: A LOT of coffee & Red Bull) and lock myself away for the weekend. As much as I generally dislike SPEED's overload of NASCAR coverage during the rest of the year. Their coverage of Le Mans fucking rules.
We get nearly the entire race, with the exception of when they go to Montreal to cover qualifying for the Canadian GP.

So far the LMP1 class looks like a bit of a blowout by Peugeot. But we'll see if Audi has anything for them during tonights qualifying.
Looking forward to the GT1 battle. I don't remember if any of them were entered last year; but it looks like the FordGT is actually a serious contender to win their class this year. It's good to see them back at Le Mans.
GT2 is shaping up to be probably the most entertaining. Ferrari-vs-Corvette-vs-Porsche-vs-BMW. Expect this to be a dogfight for probably the entire race. I don't really mind who wins this one. As long as it's a team from the ALMS series.
