Apparently the in corvette stream is available on motor trends app...I thought they used to have a free log in, or at least that was the claim when roadkill moved there. Fk em I ainít paying for that.

It's been a tough race for Corvette Racing... it'll be interesting to see how the C8.R does next year....

For real, the driver of 64 was fined 7,000 pounds for the accident that took out the car.

Team corvette describes the incident as their car was hit from behind.

Corvette Racing got screwed by the FCY/SC rules. The 63 was out front, pitted and got caught in the pits because of a SC/FCY, and had to sit for over 3 minutes. As you would expect the tires got cold and Magnussen put it into the wall on the out lap. And that's all she wrote.

Safety cars are tough on an 8 mile course... It's pretty much a no win when ever they bring one out, whether they do a single safety car or multiple cars, someones going to benefit, someone else gets screwed.

Toyota took first & second.
Looks like they're for real.
Not that they weren't prior to LeMans, but geez, that's quite an accomplishment considering the competition.

2 years in a row that they've won LMP1 and obviously overall. It would have been 3 but the car died on the last lap in 2016.

They've been dominant since Audi let WEC.

yup the vette was 3/4ths car length in front of the gte/am porsche. LOFT on the part of the porsche driver played a huge role in that debacle.
