Dito with L8 and TA. Even though I'm 15 mi. from there, I gotta give a little time to the wife and home.

Also, every year it has grown exponentially and getting around has become a miserable task now. It's a journey to get from the turn 11 bridge back to turn 6. You used to be able to sit on the hill outside track between 9 & 10a but now it is totally inhabited by RVs and snobby turds that block off any walkers. It's just not as much fun anymore. I think watching it on TV will do fine this year.

Well, I'm NOT missing it. I have not missed one since it started and I'm not planning on starting this year. TA? House Chores? WTF? I'm gonna have to work on that.

Lego, my base camp will be overlooking 10a-b as usual.

I am out. I might get to watch a wee bit on Fri, but doubt it.
RR the week before and Barber week after.
Gotta work the weekend in between.

We just got tickets to the NCSU vs FSU game. Last two times we went, we beat FSU, so we have to go again, even though this season doesn't look too good. The game's is on the 6th, so I'm going to have to Tivo this now. Go Wolfpack!

This will be my first Petite...can't wait! I'll be there Friday / Saturday and will certainly be cheering for Ben Devlin to throw down some mega lap times in the Mazda LMP2.

Anyone else viewing from the Mulsanne Chalet?

sorry I didn't get back to posting. My bf wasn't driving this race, we were just with taffle racing (the 2nd place gt cup car-71) It was a long end of the race for us as he battle between Dom(71) and Tom(18) went down. I was standing down at turns 10a and 10b watching and plotting how tom was going to spin out..and then he did for us to take 2nd! yay!

I LOVED the Audi P1 cars! They were truely awesome..although, the DHL on the porchse chasis handeled a lot better.

A fantastic race! Both battles at the end were just awesome! It was a shame that Milner spun on the last lap but he was certainly under heavy pressure from Farnbacher - getting that 2nd spot must have made for a good time in your paddock!

Romain Dumas was really impressive - he seemed to be the only one that could hang with the Audi's at any point during the day.

Shame for the Mazda, they ran strong and stayed out of trouble all day...had some sort of mechanical with about 30 minutes left.
