Go Team Corvette. Repeat class winners? Hope so. Race starts at 9:00 a.m. I believe.

One race/event I would love to go to.

Corvettes have a long history with their big "booming" V8's at Le Mans starting in 1960.

A couple of interesting Corvette racers from the 1965 race.

Watching. Forgot how crazy this gets when the safety car is out. Truly like watching arcade racing.

Also available to watch on Eurosport 1.

Sadly I have no channel that covers it. Hope it is a good race.

Back in the day when “Speedvision” was around. They used to show it in its entirety. Always a great race.

Only two instead of four cars this year? Qualifying 12th in their class, they're going to have some ground to make up during the race. Oddly I'll admit I'm disappointed so far and sure hope they make me eat crow on Sunday!

Hey Mike what is interesting about Speedvision is that it morphed out of some other racing TV show and then the cable companies dropped it altogether. It seems to me that they lost their direction somewhere along the line with some really stupid shows. Now the cable companies have MAV TV and they want me to pay for that but never did give a credit for losing Speedvision. Rip off artists indeed. Enjoyed watching the free part but no money is leaving my pocket for it.

How the heck are you doing?

Hey Murray. Things are ok here I guess. More concerned with how your doing to be honest.

Yeah,the speedvision kinda went downhill fast. If I recall,didn’t TNN (the Nashville network) blend into them? TNN used to have some racing shows now and then. Once in awhile something cool would be on.
