Context is everything in sports, particularly in 24-hour endurance racing where pit stops and timing rules can impact the outcome. You don’t really need any of that here. Just watch and enjoy.

I’m going to go against precedent here and not spoil the ending for these final 20 minutes, because the twists and turns for what is a tiny sliver of time in the grand scheme of a 24-hour race makes it incredibly enjoyable even if you didn’t watch any of it.

The only context I’ll provide is that in a 24-hour race you get to finish the lap, even if you cross the line with only a second to spare and that the Nürburgring is over 15 miles long.

That poor Clio!
