It's a shame the coverage ends at 1. We've been yellow most of the morning.

59 minutes of yellow in the first 90 minutes of the race. GT coverage is practically none.

I'm on Live timing to keep up with GT classes.

When I lived in Orlando I went to Sebring 18 years in a row it is a fantastic venue, however this current TV coverage if you want to call it that really sucks ! Who's the dumbass that thought 3 hours of coverage was enough ??? Bunch of dopes lets watch reruns of Pinks or some other god awful mindless dribble !!!

You would think they could have negotiated to show 1 hour of the start and the last two hours of the race.

What's the complaining about? I've been watching the live feed on imsa.com all afternoon. Fox Sports coverage sucks, unless you really want to see Crapcar or UFC.

I do think it's kind of dumb they don't show the last hour or so on Fox 1 or 2...at least they have a three hour recap show tomorrow AM.

My complaint is from the first 3 hrs of coverage from Fox. Hardly any GT coverage.

No complaint so far with Live streaming.

Agree...the streaming coverage is excellent and I don't have to watch the same commercials over and over. I guess I'm still longing for the old Speedvision days when the full 12 hour was covered, but time changes and so does technology.

Even if you don't have an internet TV, you can still plug the 'ol laptop (or tablet, if HDMI equipped) into the flat screen.

Tough GTLM battle thus far...far too many full course caution periods, but that's the Crapcar Grand Am influence.

Another win for Porsche! Sorry to see the EMS P2 lose out to Ganassi, but at least one of the frickin ugly Corvette DPs didn't win.

Off to Long Beach...great coverage.

What gets me is that long yellow. "Why so long"......

Props to #912. Two in a row for PCNA
