The streaming feed from the corvette #73 is very cool... Just saw the leaders lap him from his perspective, and then look up at the TV and see the big picture...

whoa! They have a rearview camera too!

I have 3 streams going, Speed on my TV, Corvette racing on my laptop, Eurosport on my desktop. I just ordered the new LeMans stuff from BBV, it actually looks classy.

Do you know if we will see streams from any of the other corvettes?


based on pit stop live stream on internet is a few seconds behind speed tv coverage.

They're talking a lot about the driver but oh my god those photographers got lucky. That car was inches from making it over the barrier. One of the tires went straight up in the air and could have easily hit several people. Its amazing nobody got killed.
