Hello everyone! It’s Sunday! I’m expecting the daily to be pretty quiet today given the amount of sport that continues over the second day of our weekend. No doubt there’ll be a thread for today’s world cup action, I’m not going to pretend I’m personally very interested in the Football but if you are there is of course a very lively place to live comment it. If you’re like me and not a fan of the football you’ll be searching for alternative sports or links to keep you interested and entertained, and that’s my job today. Let’s get on with the bullet points;

  • The famous and rather epic Le Mans 24 hour race continues today, live commenting for the first part of the race can be found here and I’m sure a thread for the second half of the race will pop up at one point too. If you haven’t had the chance to check the driver snaps section on the autosport site then I really recommend it, it provides a great glimpse into the life of the drivers throughout the duration of the event. Plenty of photos of Ant and Franck too! :)
  • On the topic of motorsport, the Formula 1 circus is in Canada at the moment with today’s race starting at 12pm local time, which is 5pm in the UK. The later race time makes a nice change for many of us, I’ll be making the most of the time I have to revise but I’m sure many of you will be doing something a lot more interesting. How does the later start affect you? Qualifying yesterday was important for lots of different reasons but the main being that we were given our first non Red Bull pole of the season. A Red Bull slip up or have McLaren made significant improvements? Everyone seems very excited for the race tomorrow (including Jake Humphrey) let’s hope it’s a good one!
  • Oh and one quick mention for Jenson’s fund raising page for the London Triathlon too. it’s such a good cause, I’ll be donating soon, come on everyone I’m sure Sidepodcast can help him boast his current total!
  • I wanted to mention the Lotus racing notes. They are a great read and act as a little emagazine preview to the weekend, with a great Heikki interview and even a photo of Catherine I can’t help thinking the team want Amy’s support! It’s certainly a great little addition to their website and I would love to encourage more teams to produce such publications.

That’s about it for me I’m afraid, I must dash off and revise some more. I would like finish the daily by wishing everyone who is currently taking exams the best of luck, whether they be GCSEs, A levels or anything else. Good luck to everyone, don’t worry, they’ll be over soon!
