Does anyone know what TV networks (if any) are going to broadcast the race?

EDIT: Just read up some more and found out that Toyota is fielding a Lexus LFA supercar. The team is called "Team LF-A." The car number is 14, and it's in class SP 8. Whatever SP 8 is. Here's some autoblog info (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lexus+lf-a/) about the LFA. Apparently designers were intrigued by the Top Secret V12 turbo supra.

Also of note, Volkswagen is fielding 3 Sciroccos, 116, 117, and 118. One of the four drivers for 117 is none other than Carlos Sainz. Here's some autoblog info about the scirocco (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/scirocco/), it's a pretty neat car with a cult following.

A Porsche 911 GT3 (Car #1) took the race... Austin Martin V8 Vantage did very good (1, 2, 3 in class), and so did the VW Scirrocos (1, 2, 4). The best performing Scirroco had Carlos Sainz as one of the drivers -- pretty cool.

The Toyota on the other hand, did not fare so well. About one hour into the race, she done blow'd up. Transmission troubles.
