No surprise Toyota wins, but Glickenhaus cars got 3rd and 4th. Announcers said it was the first podium for an American car since the Ford GT in '69.

Speaking of, Ben Keating won his class again but with the TF Sport Aston Martin, hope it sticks since his Ford GT was disqualified in 2019.

Congrats to Ben Keating.  Hopefully the ACO doesn't find a screw head that hasn't been turned with the proper sized screwdriver.

Sucked for Ferrari too.

Iron Dames was very impressive. Girl Power!

Porsche with it's XX win in class. I need to watch the Fessenbender (sp?) series on his road to Le Mans with Patrick Dempsey.

Commercials on Motortrend are a consistent loop of a standalone ER, IKEA, and an HIV prescription drug.

I'll take them over repetitive commercials for MTOD wrenching shows, but not even any Toyota commercials?

Interesting, I had completely different but repeated commercials. No ikea for sure. Location specific and probably search history algorithms at play.

I didn't watch most of it due to access to the stream issues.  But good racing, congrats to Toyota! I hope they can handle the flood of new constructors next year.

Aston Martin did good in class.

The GTE Pro class had an ok last run. There was a tight race shaping up but car issues and track incidents gapped them a good amount by morning. 

I loved the engineered for service concepts on display on the Toyota and the GTE Pro Porsches. Probably sending all the other teams back to the CAD machines to rethink some designs.

There is bad blood between Corvette Racing and AF Corse, but that was bad taste for sure.

Glickenhaus had a misfire issue related to the sensor problem both cars had, so it could've been closer.

Let me just say that this 24 Heures du Mans  2022 as presented by MotorTrend this weekend is by far the BERKING best presentation I've seen EVER!!!. I had the sound down to negligible, but the camera locations were like none I've seen. The overheads during pitstops ROCKED!!! And the drone following out of pit lane was way kool. Now my faves got punked (Corvette Racing) with the exception of TF Sport Austin Martin ....go Ben Keating !!!!

I was really hoping they were going to be able to challenge the Toyotas.  Just the whole David and Golliath thing, and the car looks the business.
