"A 24 hour race... 145 mins to show it. So I figure we are going to fly into some race action to cram in everything, right? Wrong?30 MINS devoted to testing
30 MINS devoted to qualifying (a fairly meaningless excercise for a 24 hour race)
15 MINS to the pre-race historic race
And then FINALLY we get to the raceAnd here is the worst part. This is blatantly a bunch of Le Mans shows (three of them, the testing show, qualifying show and then overall weekend/race show). So what do they show during the weekend/race segment... a COMPLETE re-run for about 20 mins of what they just showed during the qualifying segment! I'm serious, I thought I must have hit back a chapter on my remote control since I was looking at what I just watched.A complete waste of time and money this disc. Next year I'm just going to tape some of the footage - it's what's on the disc anyway (since there are also no extras) and save my self a few bucks."

"If youre a real fun of LeMans or Bentley then this DVDs for you. Definitely, its one of those DVDs you have to get if you missed it on SPEED channel or cant afford cable. Forget those. Buy this DVD and youll see the development of LeMans from the May testing, thru qualifying and of course the race. It covers a lot of the most important moments of the race, everything other than seeing the Bentleys run away 1 and 2. Well, theres not much to look at those two, they are gorgeous but boring to look at since they ran flawlessly for 24 hours. But the DVD really focuses on a lot of the races and teams aspects like the Nasamax entered alcohol car, its great to see it battle thru the field even though its burning more fuel and losing a lot of time on the pits. The epic battles between the courage and panoz at the end. and the wailing Domes are just wonderful to see battle in the early stages with the Audis. If you just want to sit back and relax to see the sights and speed of LeMans then this DVD youll love. its great for collectors also coz this is perhaps one of those great races when we see a manufacturer win after 73 years."
