    It'd be nice to see a post from you that's not negative in any way. Seems like that's all I see lately. ;)

    -----------

    Also, can someone check the start times for me? I used timeanddate.com to make the conversion, but it says the start time is on Friday for all times I posted and that doesn't seem right to me?

    I'm just realistic, and old school ;)

    Sportscar racing is, aside from VASC, my number one sport. I want to see it do well. That is way too many cars for the track size. It's nearly double the cars that'll be running at the Rolex 24, on a track that's shorter overall, with no space to spread out like the banking at Daytona provides.

    That's funny, a previous edition of this race had more entries, others have had high numbers. None of them turned into a never ending secession of Code 60.

    Anyway. Yay, the racing season starts again. :cheers:

    For the last 2 years there has been 90+ cars on track, and everything has gone exceptionally smooth,

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing Audi's new beast,

    Added the qualifying results to the OP.

    #123 RJN 370Z qualified P2 in SP3 with Jann behind the wheel. :tup:

    Edit: I will update the live stream links when they become available.

    Updated the OP stuff a little. If any of the links change, I will update them ASAP. Going to bed now to get a few hours sleep before the start.

    The NISMO TV stream is now live and includes an on-board camera for the 370Z. If anyone knows of any other on-board streams, let me know and I will add them to the OP.

    Nice start, no yellow in lap 1. I'm a little bit impressed. Jan already leading Sp2 in the Nissan. Will following this class as my favorite (Reiter Engineering KTM #246) is also competing there.
    Impressive lap 2 by Bleekemolen

    Looks like an impressive grid for this race, would like to see the Renault's do well. I still can't say I agree with minimum laptimes, if your racing to the limit of the regulations rather than the limits of the car and driver it's no longer purely a race in my opinion.

    GT Academy car in the garage. :( Broken suspension. Hopefully a quick fix, plenty of laps left to make up lost time.

    Edit: Car is heading out of the garage now. Super quick fix, good work from the team.

    And another crash, sadly #246 also out of the race :( At least the other Reiter Engineering KTM is leading the SP2 class.
