Crazy hour or so there, first the Manthey Porsche crashes then the 100 Audi that had just taken the lead for a few seconds crashes out. Right now the Hybrid Porsche is leading and if this continues I have a feeling they might be in it for the win being able to go 2 laps longer before fuel stops. Should be an interesting night and day.


Also if this attrition rate continues the NFS Z4 will have a chance to be on the podium lol.


Where are these standings reported? I'm having no lucking finding them explicitly listed....


Keep it up guys


6th place so far, 3rd in SP9 GT3. GO TEAM NFS!!!!!!


Grand Am Champ Leh Keen is in the number 43 Farbacher Ferrari


Nice to se an hybrid ine the second place. Have fun in the Nurb'!



Rank 4 after 19 hours.


LIKE IT...Cause I don't like Porsche


Just came home from Nordschleife. It was great, fantastic atmosphere everywhere. I've visited all the bigger spectator locations.. very very crowded. Every petrolhead should visit the 24hr race at least once in their life to experience this :)
