I hope to make it to that race in person one of these days. This time will be catching the live streaming feed offered through the alms website, live timing and scoring and tv coverage Pulling for all my favorites, Mazda Porsche and BMW.

Therefore I will be in Buttonwillow with PCA this weekend

Yeah, a week later and edited down to one hour, at most! I'll be watching online from the ALMS feed...can't wait a week to watch the Corvettes get dusted by the RSRs again. Looking forward to the show coming to Road America this August.

ALMS is actually gaining market share and the series has never been stronger. Granted it does not get NASCAR coverage but it is doing very well.

well i stand corrected! didnt know that it was getting more popular. I sure enjoy it of course!


but nascar... that stuff is just beyond me. only left turns and cars that dont remotely resemble their names sake except for having 4 wheels seats and a steering wheel.

I will be there... but as a guest of the Bell Micro racing team in their suite rather than the Corral.

I will also be bringing my Cayenne rather than the Boxster since I am taking some other people.

Still should be a fun event, as long as the weather plays nice!

I will be sure to make the rounds and visit the Porsche Corral. I have some friends from my old Yosemite region that are supposed to be there as well. Looking forward to it.

Let's make it a point to meet.

Let's meet in front of Gerry's car at noon ?

Or my car since it should be easy to distinguish.

beside the euro plate...my car still dirty

let's meet up in front of your car by noon and grab lunch right after...that is if you're not going to lap parade

by the way, lobo...if you see someone wearing a orange Napoleon Dynamite hat...that would be me

More like we'll be watching the Corvettes and the RSRs getting dusted by the BMWs and freakin' Risi Ferrari. I hate that team.
