Third place in range?

Whisper it: Aston Martin could get on the podium this afternoon at Le Mans. At least, that’s what we – and everyone else rooting for AM – are crossing our fingers for.

There’s just under a couple of hours to go, and the 007 Aston – currently being driven by Stefan Mucke – is only two laps down on the number one Audi.

If something goes wrong with one of the front three cars, then Aston will be up there.

Touch wood, and do what other superstitious things you do to ward off evil.

We’ve managed to sneak into Aston’s trackside pad, and the atmosphere is electric at the possibility, but as I say, no one’s wanting to talk about it incase of jinxing the car.

The TG Crew is somewhat the worse for wear, but we’re holding it together.

I think it’s called endurance racing not because the cars are fighting for 24 hours, but because all the fans have to keep it together for that long. This last couple of hours is going to be tough for us.

And the teams.
