The 81st 24 Hours of Le Mans started at 4 p.m. GMT (I do believe) with the Audi team heavily favored to win for the 3rd year in a row. Looks like they're leading pretty handily at the moment.

Also, big news at the event: Vipers are back and it looks like they've got enough to hang with the Corvettes.

Indeed... I missed that part, but I had seen that they were under full-course yellow for a long time and that part of the guard rail had been torn up pretty good. Never good when someone dies behind the wheel, but worse when it's that early in the race. Not quite John Woolfe in 1969 (first lap in his new Porsche 917, crashes at Maison Blanche and the car breaks in half), but not good.
