One of the Mercedes in a bad off, and the Manta followed and slid into it

The Merc was passing the Manta and thought the Manta had seen him, he hadn't and they made contact, which resulted in a hard hit for the Merc into the barriers.

Manthey clock up a 7th N24 win, congratulations to them!

Well done to Manthey, a 7th win; you can never discount them, they have so much knowledge of this track/area. There was a year they were a lap down from the start - and still won, in the original 'Grello' car.
Estre & Christensen finally win the N24.....

If you haven't seen it, worth a watch, the first couple of laps from Estre in the #911. https://youtu.be/l49Ehl4Eq6I

Note I think the video description is wrong as the #4 car was leading, nevertheless its impressive - in particular the dummy on the BMW at 12:55 and a code brown at 17:20 or so at the end of the dottinger hohe.

All in a days work!

Absolutely epic from Estre, his spacial awareness and judgement of grip is quite something!!

He is mega quick, and fully committed; probably my favourite driver currently in any discipline. His 'pass on the grass' from the N24 in 2019 was just mental....The Porsche GT manager said "Kevin is Kevin..."

Well worth watching the Porsche 'Endurance' documentary; telling the story of the back to back 24 Hour races of 2019; Le Mans and N24.
