This is going to be a very interesting year. Can't wait for the Lime Rock event, may actually make it down there.

On a side note, the first F1 race of the year, the Australian Grand Prix, is the following weekend (March 27 -29). With all sorts of rule changes this year including "slicks", it should be interesting. Speed should be covering as usual. I will be recording practice sessions (typically they only air the 2nd practice), qualifying, and the race. Let's hope BMW is even stronger this year. They have been improving every year. Maybe they can challenge a bit more this year....I guess we will see how it shakes down in about 10 days. Woo hoo!

Don't expect a lot from this car at this race. The preseason testing has been less than spectacular. I doubt BMW will pull a rabbit out of the hat on the first race. Only hope is race attrition.

Yeah, I aint expecting much. However, the Penske Porches ran really strong in thier initial outtings a couple years ago...they were kickin some butt until they had gremlins surface. lol I got my fingers crossed for the Rahal Letterman team, but I aint expecting much.

I was at Sebring in 2000 when they ran the E46 M3 GTR for the first time. Hans Stuck and Boris Said drove it. I'll be watching the new generation race on Saturday.
