      Speedsource is the benchmark for racing. I had the liberty of working with them for the 24 at Daytona. Lucky for me, I was able to run my own car in the Koni race on Friday (my car finished 8th) and then do the 24 for them on Saturday. Here's a pic of me giving David one of my animated discussions on pit strategy.

      Haha, nice! Yeah it was such an awesome experience to work with real professionals and the kind of environment that most of us only wish we could experience once. Yeah its hard work, you sweat alot, but it all pays off when you walk away with the memories, experience and new connections.
      I only hope more experiences like that present themselves to me down the road.

      There's a person without a head watching racing?

      I'll get some of my pictures from today up... drove out there after work, walked the track then left. New entrance way, new ticket booths, new bridge.
      The curbing looks steep, and the surface is soft. I have little faith that this pavement will hold up for both days.

      don't know that I'd agree with that. The ability to set up a pass coming down the hill to the start/finish is now gone with the mickey mouse chicane thing at west bend

      well put. That was always the best passing zone. Besides that, the new updates are still very narrow, and the surface is very slippery. I was wrong in my post above, but only because it's so slippery the cars can't get traction to tear it up.

    14. 07-12-2008 08:50 PM #64
      What a race!
      To begin...the new surface was slippery as all hell, especially at the chicane before the downhil under the bridge. Its was marble infested and dush for the cars cutting the angles short made it worst was prime space to watch the spintastics.
      I shot some video, very terrible to say the least, but it does evidence alot of passing... I thought SB did a good job with the remodel...now if only he can spend some on the facilities,..the bathroom? Ick...
      The Bell Motosports DBR9 GT1...WOWZERS!!! Stunning!
      The best exhaust note is 3 way tie..Ford GT, Vette & Panoz!! Everytime they passed me I thought Armageddon was coming...
      Not gonna spoil it for y'all....

      From a spectator's standpoint, the track is far more enjoyable as a whole.

      that's a purely subjective statement that might apply to someone who never attended an event there.
      I found that many of the passing zones are gone, most of the photo op sight lines are now gone (unless you're using a media credential to get trackside), and that with all the dirt moved why didn't they make more viewing mounds??? People standing 5 deep along the fence from the uphill to West Bend was
      Also, drivers as well as team owners didn't appreciate the "upgrades".
      of course it will be just swell for the Lime Rock Club members who just want to putter around

      Do yo have or have your read Lime Rick Park: 35 Years of Racing?
      http://www.amazon.com/Lime-Roc...r=8-1
      If you haven't and you want to borrow it the next time you're here (need to have Matt over soon and will have another dinner), just ask for it.

      Not sure what all the hubbub is about, the original line is still there for other races. An interview with Scott Sharp, he liked the course, and appreciated how smooth the track was, as well as the slower speeds entering the front strait. The previos year the lmp1 cars took the downhill at ~140mph and reached nearly 190mph on the front strait.
      You should camp out, or get there earlier if the crowd bothered you, and if you noticed, there were 10x more space on the back sections for people than the previos design.
      You may be a little bias to the direction the course has taken with ownership blahbiddyblah, I can sense some concern. But when it comes to driver's opinion, who did you talk to? Because all the driver's I heard seemed to approve [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      yea i agree, although the alms series clearly had very limited experience on the track, the new section is much safer for the drivers AND the crowd on the hill. it did seem to limit speed at the beginning, it was badass by the end when they were apexing it at 100+ and the crowd on the hill was being covered in sand.. adds to the experience. feel the burn
