Quote Norm.png
Are you ready to get out on the track for Free Practice? We've got some ground to cover to prepare for Qualifying tonight—let alone the actual race itself.

I don't doubt your driving ability—you wouldn't be on the team if I did—but the 24 Hours of Le Mans is a gruelling race, so we'd best make use of all the practice time we can get.

We're a bit up against it. Eric might have been right—I think I jinxed us.

Disaster struck in that last stint. Our steering took a bit of damage, and we've dropped down to P11. I'm hoping you can claw back some of our lost ground.
