Yes, some heavy-breathers at Fox came up with this byzantine schedule. Not only will the race be broadcast in patches, but you have to remember which channel to tune to. You’ll be giving those rabbit ears a work out!
If you’re willing to see the spectacle on a tiny screen, you do have the option of seeing the entire race on Fox’s app, Fox Sports GO. This way you can watch the race and also stand in line at the pharmacy.
Porsche 919 Hybrid sets new qualifying record at Le Mans; takes front of the grid
When Porsche triumphs in Le Mans on Sunday, do NOT FORGET that Legendary Car Guy gave you the heads-up over a week ago. Further evidence he is on the right track: the Porsche Team will start the 83rd Le Mans from one, two and three on the grid. This is the ninth time since 1968 that three Porsche race cars have locked out the front of the grid for the Le Mans 24-Hours. Last joyous occasion was in 1988.
ACT NOW!. Porsche is auctioning a rare collectible for charity: the 919 hybrid 1:1 model car rolling chassis may not be an actual drivable vehicle, but it looks every bit like the real deal. Until Sunday, June 14, you’re invited to place your bid on the limited edition model car on eBay.
Rolling chassis of Porsche 919 Hybrid being auctioned on ebay right now!
The highest bidder will receive a pair of Business Class tickets to Singapore and a two-night stay in a 5-star hotel. Why Singapore? To attend the “Porsche Circuit” event on July 23 and 24. Bidding is up to $11,000 as of noon Friday.
Please share this with anyone who follows 24 Hours of Le Mans or is an insomniac.
