Porsche #92 rebuilt and ready
After its major incident during the Hyperpole session, the #92 Porsche GT has been completely rebuilt and is ready to race again.
In past years, cars have been taken away and tested, often on the nearby airfield, but a change within the FIA rules has stopped this practice. However, a request was submitted by the team to the stewards requesting limited authorised running, which was approved, and therefore at 8PM last night, the car was given a 20 minute period to test all of its systems.
And to proves its worth, the #92 car ran fastest in the warmup session this morning.
Slow zone and marshals postes
Whatever your source of feed, radio or television, you will no doubt hear the commentators talk about these during the race, and wonder where they are talking about. Fear not, the map below shows where each of them are located.
Endurance Legends Race 2
The second race for cars and drivers was held this morning, which resulted in a win for James Cottingham in his 2002 Dallara SP1, nine seconds ahead of Shaun Lynn in the Bentley Speed 8, and Florent Moulin in his Dallara SP1.

Martin Short had an interesting race, running fourth in the early running, then getting pinged for speeding in the pitlane, and incurring a drive through penalty. This started a typical "Shortie" drive back up the order, with excited dicing with Mike Newton in the MG-Lola, and then Xavier Micheron in his Riley & Scott.
This has proved to be another exciting collection of race cars put together by the Peter Auto organisation, and we can only hope this experiment will be repeated in the future.
