24hrs of Nürburgring

Anyone going to catch the race May 18,19. 20......? I live in Canada and they don't cover it on Speed.

Any good websites?

Can't wait for it! I think that they have a live stream from their VLN website:
http://www.vln.de/index.gb.php

Also check out the ten-tenth sportscar forums at:
http://www.ten-tenths.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=7

They have all the best places to watch it online. You may also want to check out the Blancpain Series, they just had a great race at Monza last week and have a 24 hour race at Spa later in the year.

Whoever is interested in touring cars or endurance racing will love this race! For me it's the most fascinating single race event of the year.

There will be a livestream on this website: http://www.24h-rennen.de/Live.94.0.html?&L=1

AFAIK they will also provide a commentary in English.

171 cars! Here just some of the fastest:

Audi R8 LMS
Aston Martin Vantage GT3
BMW Z4 GT3
Corvette Z06 GT3
Ferrari P 4/5 Competizione
Ford GT40 GT3
Lexus LFA
McLaren MP4 GT3
Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3
Porsche 911 GT3

Uwe Alzen drove the qualifying lap placing Team Schubert at pole position in the No. 19 Z4 GT3 car! My pal Jörg Müller will have his first stint in the morning!

Jörg Müller put in a fast first lap, but undoubtedly backed the car off to save it. After the first lap he was over 8 seconds ahead of the second car. He is still in the top spot and my guess is as long as the car lasts, they will win. Problem is, in a 24h race, anything can happen.

The 19 car is in the pit for a right rear axle problem. It's lost the lead :-(
