Le Mans Grand Prix

Super exciting race - yet completely heartbreaking (depending on who you're rooting for).

Last lap crases are heartbreaking no matter what.

That was just crushing. Just feels like the end of an era. I shut it off and couldn't watch the podium or interviews.

Yeah, I nearly broke the glass on our living room coffee table at the end of the final lap.   Been a rough week.

Great race the end was(for me at least)predictable. When you push too hard  mistakes happen!
I don't understand why they did not mention Nicky Hayden at all. Hopefully he will survive.

 There were some signs and banners on the starting grid, but I agree, no mention in any of the post race interviews that I heard.

They ran a piece during the GP "prerace" show after the Moto2 broadcast. If you just tuned in for the GP broadcast, you would have missed it.
