Lots of drama in Le Mans warm-up

There was a lot of drama when the warm-up was run for the Le Mans race.

Both Panis Barthez Competition Ligier #23 with Paul Loup Chatin and Baxi DC Racing Alpine #35 with David Cheng ended up hard in the barriers after driving erros from both drivers. Both touched a wet cerb and thereafter lost control and crashed at the end of the Porsche Curves for Chatin and at the entry of Indianapolis for Cheng.

So the mechanics have a big task to prepair the cars fo the race start at 15.00 CET. We will cross our fingers that the cars can actually be repaired, since both had contact with the barrier with over 200 kph.

Porsche #91 and Race Performance #34 had a trip off the track each, but nothing that damaged the cars, so they just need to be emptied from small stones.

There is no need to mention any times here, since nobody were able to set representative times due to the 2 red flags.
