Man I wish I could be there. Saving up the cash for the next couple items on the wishlist for the car. Daytona was great though.

I'm an E46 //M3 guy myself, but tend to keep an eye open for Sebring threads this time of year.

The viewing in Sebring is excellent, it's one of the best tracks for a fan in my opinion, as long as you are willing to do some walking. It's not a "sit in the stands and watch all day place", it's a move around and see the different locations on the track. You can get very close to trackside at more than half of the circuit and you are close to the action.

In past years the paddock is also fan friendly and you can get close to the cars there. Not sure how that will change this year given the changes to the series, but I'm hoping much of the venue protocol is the same as past years.

BMW corral is pretty well attended as well and well located the last few years for viewing and a "home base" for walking.

I was planning on going this year, but it looks like the valve body in my E60 may have made other arrangements for me.

I'll be heading to the corral as well- arriving Thurs. evening for the night practice. We hit the early practice last Friday- here's a pic of the one of the Continental guys:

I wish I could be there, I went to the Daytona 24, so my endurance race budget is all used up. The TUSCC is a hell of a show this year. The P2-DP BOP should be nice and worked out for Sebring, so this should be a hell of a race.

I won the MX-5 Pro Challenge race on Thursday and placed 3rd today this weekend (MX-5 Cup is a professional support series for TUDOR, and INDY car).

Been a great weekend with fantastic weather and little wind. Only a few big crashes so far and hope it stays that way. Should be a great race tomorrow! (BMW is on Pole in GTD)
