    Well, I know for a fact that we get directed pictures when the german broadcaster (sport1) is showing it on the television. So it might be a cost thing… with the track being as extensive (and surrounded by forrests) as it is, you need helicopters to relay the onboards etc. And it might be just too expensive to operate the helicopters just for the internet streams.

    that puts its sister car into contention for 3rd place though… gripping battle on track now, after 23 hours and 55 mins

    For everyone who missed it, the Porsche was battling for 3rd position, so he had to unlap himself. He then slowed down to led the leader pass again (I guess the fuel wouldn’t have lasted? I just woke up after a power nap, so I’ve got no confirmations yet) but still crossed the start / finish line…. Well, and then the Clio (whose driver apparently concentrated on the chequered flag / the pitwall and not on the road ahead) added insult to injury

    So I guess neither of them are classified in the end result?!
