Regretfully there was no visit to La Sarthe for me this year, but I've been avidly following the Le Mans 24 Hours via television, laptop and tablet since the race got underway.

Le Mans really lends itself to the multi-media immersion, so I've got the Eurosport feed on the telly, a lap timing feed on the iPad and Nissan's NISMO.TV on the MacBook.

Autocar.co.uk is carrying NISMO.TV's stream this year, offering all manner of high-speed action across four camera views, although the opportunity to watch from onboard the ZEOD RC hybrid sadly disappeared when the car retired in the early stages of the race.

The other onboard camera is fixed in the cockpit of the G-Drive by OAK Racing LMP2 prototype, which is being driven by Jann Mardenborough, Alex Brundle and Mark Shulzhitskiy.

It's easy to overlook the LMP2 category, with the quicker LMP1 prototypes hogging the headlines and the GT classes populated by readily identifiable super cars of the sort that fans can see on the road.

Nevertheless, LMP2 traditionally throws up some stern competition, and the Oak Racing Ligier-Nissan has been right in the thick of it this time. As I write this the car is seventh overall and leading the LMP2 fight.
