      Total chump move by the LMP2 car on the Risi car. Damnit. Was pulling for Risi after last year. ACO better sit that driver. That Risi car was a brand new 0 race chassis!!!

      It's binned, yes. It continued for 92 laps (sorry) before losing compression in the V6. It was slowing on the track the last laps. Sorry, the crash itself was not the cause of the retire, but it didn't help.

      Toyota #8 is in the garage. Apparently it is a brake caliper.

      And damn #64 Corvette has also had a blow out.
