Was looking back through a few notes from last year.

For context, Glickenhaus did a 3.29.115 to top test day last year. Which was 5.2secs off the best lap we saw all of last year (Kobayashi in Hyperpole - 3.23.900).

In GT-Pro it was basically 7 seconds off the ultimate pace in the test day - for obvious reasons.

Another thing I'd forgotten about was the slight controversy around the qualifying format from last year.

You only get an hour on Wednesday in Qualifying practice to get into the top six for Hyperpole. So very hard to nail a lap without traffic. We saw Albuquerque mess up last year and that was the beginning of their race unravelling.

Unfortunately there are still so many hours upon hours of inconsequential free practice prior to the race. Too much IMO.

Yeah, I can't see a reason, why they can't make one or two full practice sessions giving the teams more time to set good laptimes qualifying them for hyperpole.


Meanwhile both Toyotas gone to top but then Glickenhaus gone marginally faster.

3:33s so far.

Toyota could be much slower this year, more weight, less power and most importatnly hybrid boost from 190 km/h instead of 120 last year

I think UA were spread too thinly last year across three cars (a lesson WRT seem to have learned from), but the race definitely began to fall apart with Albuquerque popping off about not getting a clean lap in qualifying.

As for why I think it's there, it increases the drama. Guaranteed stories to write about pre-Hyperpole. It's here to stay, unless an almighty fuss is kicked up about it, or someone ends a race week - or more - on the back of trying to get a good lap in.

Looks like both Pro Porsches have had mechanical issues and needed bringing back to the garages on flatbeds. The 92 particularly has lost a lot of running this morning.

Not listening to the RLM coverage (saving that for the drive down) so not sure of any specific issues. Porsche's twitter described 91's issue as a "glitch".

RLM said the 92 was a broken drive shaft.

why alpine just can't get back to its 600hp? Toyota and glickenhaus top speed is in 330km/h range, alpine top speed is the same of lmp2... they will be nowhere in race pace if unable to overpass the (supposed) slower army of lmp2.

I don't know if that means anything but Alpine ended slowest LMH in the morning session.

But regarding BOP I guess that Toyota can't run as quick as last year mostly due to the min. 190 kmh boost activation speed.

So Alpine must be slowed down also due to it's Sebring performance showing.

And both Alpine and Toyota could run quicker ofc, so this has to be due to Glickenhaus?

bop aside, it's a matter of logic... even if alpine can set overall faster laptimes than lmp2, it has however same top speed of lmp2, it means that alpine drivers won't be able to pass lmp2 on straight (unless divebombing all the time) and that would kill their race pace because they'll be stuck in the traffic for the whole race considering the amount of lmp2 around the track. That's just unfair IMHO.

I would like ACO would really hit the spot with the BOP for the three including stint lenghth and refuelling and Toyota would have to really sweat and show its team, pitsop etc. advantage to win.

Any other round, sure!

Sadly that's not how it works once we arrive at Le Mans
