Wow, I was a little late to the party. The 12 Hours of Sebring started 3 hours ago lol.

One question:

Why isn't Audi running the R18 that I posted a page back? They're running the R15 still. Are they waiting for the 24 Hours of Le Mans? Same with Peugeot running the '10 spec 908 when they unveiled a new car just a couple of weeks ago. As I'm typing this, I just noticed Aston Martin is still running the same car also.

EDIT: Wait, I seem to be wrong about Aston Martin. They're running both last year's car and the new open cockpit car. There is a black sponsorless closed cockpit LMP sitting behind the 2 Peugeots. I haven't really gotten a clear view at it to see if it is the R18.

Johaness Van Overbekk just took a large hit to one of the Corvette Racing C6.Rs, then contacting the tire wall soon after at a very high rate of speed. They're still trying to get him out of the car. It seems he is injured, hopefully not seriously.

The #01 gas-powered Highcroft HPD ARX-01e just passed the diesel Peugeot 908 for the lead and kept it for 2 laps until an LMPC car wrecked and put out a full-course caution. Now to see if it has the pull away power from the green flag. They have matched the power between diesels and gas, so it's an equal battle.

EDIT: By the way, if you haven't noticed (if you are watching), this is the first time in over a decade that all Big 3 Japanese manufacturers are competiting in this. Well technically. Nissan and Honda have factory backed teams while Toyota is just powering a privateer's car.

Peugeot takes 1st and 3rd, while Honda brings home an impressive 2nd place finish.
