    According to the JGTC offical site, the 64 Mobil 1 NSX driven by D.Schwager and T.Matsuda won the GT500 class in the '01 Motegi race while the 19 Weds Sport MR-S driven by M.Tanaka and S.Goto won the GT300 class. The closest GTR was 6th, the 30 SOK driven by H.Okada and A.Couto.


    Oops, forgot the question...

    What cars and drivers won the 1972 Deutsche Rennsport Meistershaft (DRM) Nurburgring race? I want both the division 1 and the division 2 winners.

    Haven't had much time to think of good questions lately so here is another one that should be easy.
    In terms of championships, who is the second most successful World of Outlaws driver?

    Is it Danny Lasoski? (Been a while since I payed attention to WoO because of a lack of coverage. The magazine I used to get had it, but I had to cancel it because of a lack of funds)

    No it's not Danny. This person has a brother who also raced sprintcars.

    Oh, I know the last name, but I don't remember the first! Kinser! Was it Steve Kinser?

    No, not Kinser. Steve Kinser is the most successful driver with 19 wins and his cousin Mark has won twice.
    Sammy Swindell is the second most successful driver in the WoO with three championship wins in 1981, 1982 and 1997.
    I am surprised that no-one could answer that.
    The next person here can feel free to ask the next question.

    Heh, tells you how long it's been since I've delt with WoO. I've got one, and it MIGHT be a little hard, but if you look you'll find the answer.

    Who was the driver and what was the car that won the GT5 class at the 2004 SCCA Run Offs at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course?

    Doug Peterson in a Mini won in what should be his last appearance in the run-offs as classes GT4 and GT5 are being merged.

    Jochen Rindt in 1970, an honor I don't think anyone would want.

    I don't think he would have celebrated much. What's your question?

    No and no, but one of you is close. I won't say who because I don't want to give it away. (Finally, found a hard one!)

    Nope, not quite. I'll wait for a couple more guesses before giving up the answer.

    Nope. I really think this tyre company is the last thing of most everyone's mind.

    Nope, sorry. I'll give one more guy a chance, since you've answered more than once. This tyre is used in racing, just not as much in US racing. Corvettes have used them, BMW's have used them, and a few in open wheel racing. It is made in a European country.

    Like I said, I'm trying to not give it away, and I almost feel like I have with that clue.
