ALMS

Hey I know this should be in Off Topic Discussions but I feel like a racing sub category would be more appropriate for ALMS. Can we get a thread for this? It may be a stupid question but I love GT1 and really like how its in the US. Want to go up to Lime Rock this year. Also there is an M3 running this year, so it is relevant to us on the Bimmer forums.

Just a thought, feel free to yell at me if you want.

Good point, as much as I love F1, I think a general racing forum would be more appropriate. Maybe see how much traffic that gets, then consider sub-dividing it into F1, ALMS, and Club Racing.

Too bad most of the tv coverage is on those damn Prototypes, they are cool and all, but I really wish you could chose what part of the race to watch. What ever happened to interactive tv?

Was thinking exactly the same ... watched ALMS sebring ride yesterday and all i saw for an hour was audi R15's (who won btw) , the peugeot competitors and GT2 ferrari's ...

all i saw of the 2 M3's racing was the rolling banner that said they were in last and third to last place
