Just after the clock struck 11:30AM US time the Mazda 6 safety car pulled off the racing line and into the pit lane. Taking up it’s spot at the head of the field was the mighty Pug and fifty two other cars. With ten hours of racing and many many miles ahead of them, who knows what might be the out come at the end.

A gaggle of Middle Eastern racers are out there so tune in and enjoy – You can stream the race LIVE onĀ  the American LeMans website >>>

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
