Doing the 24 Hours of Le Mans right now in GT5's B-Spec mode. 15.5 hours in at the moment. This is actually hella fun. I got my guys comfortably into 1st before going to bed last night, but awoke to find them in 7th at -3 laps.
Been pushing them as hard as I can for the last 3 hours and I have them back in 3rd about 1.5 laps behind, so we're recovering. I know I could've given them the X1 and walked away and they'd win easy, but I wanted to win Le Mans for real. So, driving an Exxon-sponsored Peugeot 905 racecar. Main competition are a pair of frak fast factory-backed Audis and a Pescarolo C60 Hybride. Gaining on them slowly but surely. If I can get this tempo up I think my guys can regain 1st from the team Audi racers in another couple hours. Then it's just a matter of keeping my eye on them at regular intervals so they don't get lazy.
Using my star driver who's at level 39 and has gold on every race in the game except the two 24 hour endurance races as the team's primary driver, backed up by a level 38 who has never lost a race and a level 36 who is a tire-burning hothead. I think between them, with me managing, we just might pull this off.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.
