But I agree in principle, this haranguing between the various organisations isn't helping matters at all.
That's what I mean, the GTE grid for this has never been as healthy as the LMP grid. I'd still replace GTE Am (in all series) with GT3 and keep the Am class, but with GT3 machines.

Bit silly taking so long to get the cars gapped properly.

Excellent start from van der Garde, jumping up to second and immediately on Buret's gearbox. Alex Brundle also moving well up the LMP3 field, as expected after the poor show in qualifying.

Edit - Guido, this isn't single seater racing, you don't want to be clipping Gommendy when he's already past and the barriers are so close to the track!

Pretty sure the Panis Barthez car jumped the start massively. He gapped the TDS car before the green lights were on.

I thought that was gommendys fault. Moved over on the nose of the G Drive car.

To me Gommendy was 3/4 (of a car) ahead when he moved, so I'd put the onus on Guido to concede. Granted, both drivers were rather feisty for the opening laps of a 4 hour race.

Speaking of feisty, the leading P2s might want to take it a bit easier in traffic!

Buret is a bit crazy. Matter of time till he has his accident, or penalty.

Also, this track is fantastic. It's brilliant after seeing nonsense like Paul Ricard, and things like Bahrain and China due later in the year.

Might be a busy day in the #23 pit box, they've got to fix the front right headlight pronto.

Edit - Huge slide for Buret! Goes for a gap that isn't there trying to lap the #66 JMW into the last corner, side-slams Butcher, saves himself (thanks to the large runoff, otherwise that would have been a race-ending shunt) and rejoins in 4th. There must be damage as well.

Drive through for Buret for "Not respecting the race start".

Edit - And then he bins it in the gravel just before Wurth.

You've made quite an impact Timothe!

Then didn't van der Garde as well? He followed the PanisBarthez car, and passed the Thiriet car before the start.

I don't think they'll get a penalty for the headlight, they'll just have to fix it at the next stop. Unless the jury think it played a part in the 66-23 contact ?
