The Blancpain GT races would be a lot less confusing if the car numbers were shown in the onscreen timing graphics.

If we ignore that incident at the first corner, we got quite a sensible race so far given the conditions.

Today's Super GT Rd.1 winner by the way, race was red flagged and finished in the middle due to heavy rain

Yamamoto of Button/Yamamoto car was punted off by another NSX and finished at dead last of P15

GT300

Somehow half of all NSXs look like un(der)-painted interim testing livery lol, what were design teams thinking, maybe it looked good on CG rendering but real ones look like temp livery for winter testing

Honda will not be happy!!

 

Apparently it was looking very good up to then, Yamamoto was leading when he was shunted off. Jenson never even got to drive.

After the disappointing F1 race in Baku you might want to watch a GT3 race at beautiful Virginia International Raceway.
Green flag in 30 minutes?

It's so great to see GT3 cars blasting down the verdant hills of VIR.

 

I love the new look PWC and can't wait to see it grow.

Big spin for Andy Soucek in T16b. Left rear puncture. Those three seconds were more exciting than the entire F1 race.

That was a great round of stops - more or less shuffled the order. And some strong defending by Molina.

Longmeister reeling Baptista in..

 

Such a fantastic circuit. One morning I want to wake up from one of those villas to a screaming V8.

E: The left rear is taking a bit of a beating it seems. Or then it's another case of cheese Pirellis.

Never heard of this Baptista guy before and the dude just blitzes the field. The Bentley may have had a slight edge, but I doubt it was all that.

He’s been around for a while. Those Bentleys were blazing at VIR.

The Super GT race at Fuji is only nine hours away. I don't know if there will be a legal live stream anywhere.

SC after quite a couple of laps of ridiculously overaggressive driving that led to five or six cars crashing.

Well, he had some help too. But it was funny that out of the 5 or so damaged cars 4 were Audis. Incoming call from Chris Reinke...

Cracking race this second one by the way, and the first wasn't bad either. Almost unusually action-packed for Brands Hatch.
