Here are the results, replays, and photos from The Oppositelock Forza 6 2.4 Hours Of Le Mans. Also, I have an announcement regarding a future series...
Here is the link to the replay, in case you missed the race. Like the Daytona 2.4 back in January, the lobby was nearly at capacity. Which meant there was plenty going on. Special thanks to RoboRed for recording the race from a spectator’s point of view, everyone who also recorded the race and/or streamed it on Twitch, and to Little Black Coupe for being the pace car (for a short time lol).
Here are the results by class, as well as a picture of the car used by each driver.

Also, with awards of this magnitude, the winning manufactures have been made aware of their massive success. These trophies will make beautiful additions to their lists of victories.
In addition to the trophies, I also combined the pictures of the full field and winners from previous races into one image to show how the field has changed over the years. Here is a link to 2014's post race, 2015's post race, and 2016's post race.
Here are some more photos from the race. If you have any pictures from the race that you want to share, post them in the comments.
Thoughts And Comments
As with anything with the name “Le Mans” in it this year, this race was not without incident or controversy. This race had more cautions than any other Oppo Le Mans that has been held, which makes sense since it was the only one to actually have cautions. Moving away from my misleading statistics, this race did still have a good number of incidents. Especially as the race got closer to the finish, there were a lot more cautions. This isn’t exactly a bad thing, running 2.4 hours completely clean is next to impossible. Though I was hoping things would go a bit smoother. Guess that can be said of the real 24 Hours of Le Mans as well. No one’s really to blame. Just a multitude of incidents, nothing more. Not like anyone was treating this like a matchmaking lobby or anything. Also, I thought everyone did some great driving, regardless of how much time they’ve spent on Le Mans this month.
The Next Series
Oh yes, Can Am.
Because 1970's Formula Juan cars were too safe and friendly, this next series will feature tube frames with a 10 foot tall spoiler and engines that have more power and size than most countries. Chances are this will be the last series I run in Forza 6 before the jump to Forza 7 happens. And I think it will send off the game with a bang. Expect a full post with sign ups and all the details soon.
Congrats to everyone who raced! Four years now this event has been happening. Now we wait for five! Featuring dynamic day and night, dynamic weather, and some form of race car. Maybe we’ll get a good number of Group C cars. Or a Porsche 917. Or proper KERS systems. Or Turn 10 is going to take my money and leave me with a three year old Porsche 919 that only makes power at 5000 rpm...
