: : That's it, BMW has won this year's very tight Grand Prix right in front of the Toyota's.
: Actually Toyota was leading when, 1 hour from the end, the leading car blew a tire and spent 4 minutes in the pits to repair damage. (Like the leading Ferrari in Steve MqQueen's Le Mans movie).
: During the final stages the Toyota came within 22 seconds of the leading BMW. JJ Letho stuffed the second BMW in the guardrails four hours from the end.
: The Mercedes that crashed caught air and summersaulted five times coming to rest, on its wheels, among some trees. Mercedes then pulled the rest of its entries.
: Overall some pretty exiting racing.
