Yo Ryan you are my hero of the week. First the swaybar and now some kick-ass photos! I am seriously considering going to this now if tickets are still available. Got my fingers crossed that work will not interfere.

Going to just miss it
Heading down for Ofest on Saturday, but will not get to Atlanta until Monday (required pit stop in Tenn.).

Take lots of pictures.

I see the 92 gave up the efficiency sticker for NFS-Shift ads

Great shots rodi, you've got me really excited to see the R15 in action.

I'm coming from Dallas, TX. Any tips on routes to avoid due to flooding? The M3 is very, very close to the ground.

the R15 is truly amazing. so fast coming out of that last turn and onto the straight.

you'll know if there's flooding before you get to a flooded spot, just don't try going through a puddle or flood unless you know it's under 5 inches or so. and then go extremely slow - creep. i had to traverse 5 inches last night. the same spot this morning was twice as deep, if not more. had to detour ten times.

Summerton on Pole for Atlantics today... Let's hope he wins. Monterey could be interesting in a couple of weeks...

WTCC drivers Jörg Müller and Andy Priaulx are set to take part in the Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta, at the wheel of two BMW M3 GT2 cars for the Rahal Letterman team. Priaulx, who makes his first appearance at the Petit Le Mans, shares his car with Bill Auberlen and Joey Hand, while Müller will make shifts with Dirk Müller (his former team-mate in ETCC and WTCC) and Tommy Milner.

rain.
two laps shy of an official race.
the M3's were having some oil problems.
Peugeot in the lead because the R15 wiped out - did a 180 in the middle of the track.

I know it is sacrilege to say it here, But the GT2 Vettes/Panoz sound pretty beastly @ WOT as well. Spent most of my time at the straight just before turn 7. Pretty certain I will be attending 12 hrs of Sebring in March as well.

i was shooting for the LGM Vette team and the ECO biodiesel team (but they pulled themselves from the race due to overheating issues in our climate - with the weather we had Saturday, they should have left it in), but i did get some really cool shots of the M3's and the R15. will post tomorrow.
