Great footage, thanks for posting. Don't know how you guys can remember all those bends at 11/10ths speed. Good fun and more!!!

Did the Mclaren spin because it was hit by the Porker?

There are a few thing going on. That video is from a race before the 24 before we got our KERS working which really dropped our lap times in the 24. At the start of the race there are 170 cars banging around and we gave our driver explicit instructions not to push until later laps when things calmed down. The McLarens pushed and many crashed out. In the 24 they were way back. Hopefully the McLaren drivers will calm down and do better as time goes on.

Will you be at Silverstone this weekend for FIA World Endurance Championship ?
No different class than we run in not sanctioned for our class. Probably our next race will be at the Ring on October 27Th as the FIA hasn't sanctioned the September 29Th race at The Ring in time.

FIA World Championships are a bit tricky.

That too bad, I will be up at Silverstone to see a friend race in LMP1 on Sunday. Would have been nice to finally see the P 4/5 Competizone in action.

One thing I've been wondering...in the E1XP class I thought there wasn't a limit on engine size or cylinder count? The V12 would sound soooooooooooo good in the P4/5C M ;)

There isn't but as it would be BOP'd and a V12 would be very fuel inefficient it wouldn't be competitive.
