I'm not so sure. The Ferrari driver should of seen the Toyota coming from way back, Ferrari driver stays left which makes the Toyota think its letting him past. Then at 1:06 the Ferrari driver turns in (which is the correct line for the corner) which to me looks like he didn't even know the Toyota was there. At 1:06 the Toyota is far enough up beside the Ferrari, the Ferrari should of yielded.

That was my thoughts on the collision, the Ferrari hit towards the rear end of the Toyota after giving it the space on the inside.

The Ferrari was one of the gentlemen drivers in the GTAM class

Hearing Anthony Davidson broke his back in the accident with the Ferrari, nothing officially confirmed just talk from some teams

Have you been under a rock lately?

It was originally designed as a Indycar concept for 1 of the 2 "tenders" for the Indy car which went to Dallara which is being run this year. After all the development and Don Panoz past Le Mans experience they re-engineered the car to lemans specs and got a special entry pass ( next year going to a Hydrogen Bomb... sorry i meant Hydrogen car, just hope no-one hits it)

designed to be 1/2 the weight, 1/2 power, 1/2 aero drag of the other prototype cars and the same performance, although it hasn't worked with it being 10-20 seconds off the "competition"
