I'm watching it on YouTube, on and off as I've been watching the TT coverage as well, and with the interviews, the commentary, and the realism of the game, it's very close to watching the real thing! Having watched a couple of the Formula E races I am very surprised at how good this is.

Doesn't replace the real thing of course!

Pits don't sparkle enough but otherwise I'm surprisingly engaged... especially since FA/RB reinstated..

The racing has been really good. Probably aided by the less-than-realistic damage simulation; you can evidently stick the nose of your car into traffic at ~50mph and it'll still make it back to the pits afterward... wink Hence the drivers are giving it more stick and taking more risks than in the real races. Makes for good watching!

However, this "concert" bit can GTF. They've relegated the race to a tiny portion of the screen so that we can watch "The Avener". Whoever that is...

ETA: Porsche still streaming actual racing on their Youtube channel. Top marks. smile

Just like the real thing, a ste band to ignore as the night draws in.
Not that I’m ungrateful...

It hasn’t been too bad! No match for being there, but not terrible.

Fair play, they are giving it a good go with the commentary and guests they’ve had on.

Never seen a red flag for a ‘computer reboot’ at the real thing before!

Could maybe do with better graphics of who is where other than just numbers of the cars. Just finding it hard to follow who is who. But I haven’t invested too much time with the virtual event beforehand.

Not watched entirely, but a good amount of it and generally been on in the background. Will tune back in tomorrow morning. All seems pretty close so far.

Got my parents (dad comes with me to LM each year), around for bbq (French themed) to watch the end of it.

It has helped a bit this weekend to make up for the break in the June pilgrimage.

Front page of the local paper shows people camping out at the circuit to watch it on Eurosport. They seem well equipped on the liquid front!

Windows PC only. Not seen any chat on Xbox Series X or PS5, but don’t think it’s likely.

I must admit you tube and Eurosport have been a better option for us . I brought an Epson projector and the plan was to conect to my laptop to stream mototrsporttv as I felt none of the other channel's would show as much .
Just like the real race we dont stay at the track for the complete race .
And now this morning we are back watching but without the mad rush to leave the track at 3 to beat the traffic out of the stadium.
This really has been a great race so far .

yes

The scrap for P2 in the LMP class has been brilliant just now. Looks like the Bykolles car is pulling out a gap now, but all it takes is a bit of GTE traffic...

Exciting last hour!
