#43 is currently 3rd in class, five positions from the lead car, roughly a lap back.

At this point, I'd be curious to know the percentage (%) of time the race has been under green and/or FCY/SC conditions.

Up early to discover red flag - no restart until at least six hours of red flag - so most in the pits seem to be getting shut eye.

Rain actually ruined this race. Never seen so much downtime in a 24 hour race before, but I haven't watched too many of them either.

Your experience/enjoyment level should only get better.

Meanwhile after a monster stint ‘The Christina’ hands off to Fumanelli

Agreed. A barrier repair might go to the end of the race.

Anybody knows where to find race attendance numbers?

 

On TV, even the grandstand (with a rain-proof roof) opposite the 24h pits were half empty. Whereas the conditions during the 6-hr WEC race were considerably worse (camping fans waking up in the snow, the pits tower showing 0 degrees C when the snow/sleet hit the track during the race).
