Ok, so this is the one motor racing event which genuinely floats my boat. It's going live to the US on Speed Channel this year too.
161 laps, 1000kms. For those overseas who haven't seen it, this is a brutal race over a circuit which climbs, then descends, over about 300 metres. Just an amazing circuit.
Here's an in-car clip from 2010.

Hope they all get around safely this year.
