Here's some inside scoop heard on Patrick Dempsey's # 71 Aston Martin radio today. Dempsey surprised the team with an unexpected pit-in after a tap in the rear and a spin. The quick driver change put Chris Porritt in the driver's seat with little warning. He goes out for practice laps and the team manager continuously tries to hail the new driver over the radio without success.
"Chris! Chris! 1 2 3..."
After the second lap under yellow, I hear a young British voice:
"Radio check... Radio check..."
Team Manager responds: "Chris, can you hear me?".
Chris goes "Yes, apparently the radio went 'in the wrong hole', as she would say....", LMAO!
We took some pix of the Turner girls (gulp!) and check out the really cool night shot with the ferris wheel in the background.
