Right the first test for this year is this friday and saturday at Paul Ricard.

Really looking forward to this weekend to see how the new Toyota Hybrid gets on. :)

Can wait. A week to go.

This could seriously interest me more than F1 this year. The cars are simply wonderful, great variety in looks, engines and with multi classes there is so much going on.

Bring it on!!!!!!!!

Race will be streamed live

Some good news from the FIA today – there will be an official live video stream for the 12 Hours of Sebring – the opening race of the 2012 World Endurance Championship – at http://www.fiawec.com.

It will be available in “all parts of the world with the exception of North America” where presumably there is some other contract in place.

I've always found the way that the French grammar works with 24 Hours of Le Mans a bit weird, maybe it's the reduced number of words. I understand why, it just doesn't look right!

Anyone got a TV schedule for this sort of racing?

Watching it via the ALMS website atm.... been a few collisions... track quite tight it seems.

Also have to say how annoying it is that the site can only have audio for the on track action... anything else has to be silent. There was a decent looking Porsche memorial clip earlier that they couldn't have the audio on :thumbdown:

Boring race. ESPN showed more Bowling Masters commercials and shots of the Queen Mary than on track action.
