    Part of that video ( between Turns 5 & 6) was filmed just down from where we were parked.

    That looks to be some fast speeds around the 2 minute mark.

    I really like the sound of those Porsche's.



    Overall I think it turned out to be a pretty damn good season!!

    I'm really glad to see some other P2 interest along with Southard and Shane Lewis coming back albeit as a new team name. BMW must want back in P for there to be multiple entries planned. I was really worried that the P class may only have the current crop of DPs and the SkyActiv for this next year. I really am glad the LMP2 guys haven't read what the internets are saying. I'd really like to see Starworks have one of each chassis next year. That would be interesting

    One part that kinda baffles me:

    This confuses me because the person in charge of BMW's Motorsport activities said himself at Petit Le Mans that they would stick with the Z4.

    Did he say with Rahal? The uncertainty described just says it's if RLL will be the team to drive it.

    Now that I actually remember, he didn't say RLL specifically. I guess I only assumed it because they have been the only team running the Z4 GTLM (and only in the US) so it didn't occur to me at the time. Who else would they have to run the Z4s though?

    Ganassi and Andretti are rumored to be fielding a BMW GTLM of some sort.

    Could've sworn Ganassi was sticking with Ford (because manufacterer money and such). Last I heard, Andretti was gonna go P2 before talks with Honda fell through.
