    The best result so far for this very young team. In todays practice we ran 1-2-3 as a result. The second session was cut short by an accident in the ST series that ended up destrying that ST car. Very scary when all you see is a car further up in the wall and a ball of flames. I thought we had a fatality today when it turned out the fuel cell ripped out of the car and burst in flames. The driver was okay but we did not get any times in the second run.

    Lets see what tomorrow brings. We are hopeful.

    oh and Barber is a wonderful racetrack. If you ever have a chance to come here, it is more of a country club than anything else. Very very very nice. Great motorcycle museum as well. Manicured lawns....oh my....very nice.

    Also a picture of the score board. :)

    We are 85, 88 and 89 Porsche GrandAm Cup

    no...sorry I was not clear.

    This weekend is the GrandAm series event here in Barber. Cup and Rolex series are here. I am working (not driving) with LNS Performance. I hope to hitch a ride next year with one of the cars once I have some more experience.

    My first official race will be in September in Homestead, CHRA in a 355Challenge.

    An accident at a GA race? Hard to imagine!

    Barber has even been mentioned as a venue for F-1.

    It would be a fitting event for F1 like the Bahrain and other new venues.
    Was at the museum today and was flabergasted. Oh my God. What a museum. You have to see that when you get anywhere near here.
    This is amazing. They have some 800 motorcycles, some super nice F1 and F3 cars and others. Just amazing. A real treat.

    #88 came in 5th
    #89 came in 10th in a field of over 60 cars.

    From the 60+ cars almost all finished. We had some 5 cars fail or crash on track and there may have been another 3 that quit during the race in the pits.
    This is ST and GS

    As for my job, Rammer, I don't have an official job description. Saturday I was the jack man during the race and am general help during the rest of the time.

    no mentioning of a Navigator. What are you looking for?
    Worst case I will find it for you when I get back. I am going to the local auctions as well. Unless this is another "special order" .

    Heading out to Montreal tomorrow morning for the next race. We have excellend drivers on board for this race and hope for a podium finish.

    Mr. Espenlaub, well kown in Speed Touring and two very well known local drivers in Tres Riviere, one of who won the GrandAm Championship twice in a row.

    I will forward info if I can from up there. Hope my e-mail works.
