Toyota just won the 6 hours of sao paulo. Really well done to them in only their 3rd race back and already beating the audi's is quite remarkable they are doing a phenomenal job.

Also good job from Lucas di grassi in his first race for audi and luizzi as well in the lotus.

that's the best official stream ever, and timing is good too, check out theme button and you can switch to nightmode.

shame the hot girls got taken out :thumbdown:

the winner will come from outside the top ten as it stands.

I can't get the timing page to work for me, the organizers say its overloaded and to just check back later

The ladies would have been a lot better off if it didn't take FOREVER to get the car back. So frustrating.

If you're wondering what code 60 is... there is no safety car and no cautions :uhoh:

Invisible safety car makes so much sense for this kind of racing, would make sense for britcar, nring, etc. too.

It does make me want to create a "Code 60....INVISIBLE SAFETY CAR" meme though

Quote of the race so far:

"vroom........vroom.......vroom....."

I can tell the commentators have been drinking. :P

80 cars started the race, that's crowded everywhere but the nurburgring. Dumb driving by the leader there though, absolutely no way that would have worked.

Maybe the way forward for F1?

The Toyota TS030 is basically an F1 car underneath.
