    It was a nice show, when I walked in I noticed the 275 GTB wasn't there. I was there a little after the show ended (about 11:05) and they pulled the 275 out of a private garage... It was a beautiful car and all of the chrome was taped.

    Anyone going to the Oak Brook Polo Club "Horse & Horsepower" this Sunday? I've never been but was thinking of doing it. Never seen a Polo match before.

    IMSA 2016 normal entry list for the most important sports car event in this region. Just look at all those top factory backed teams!!! There will be a few more cars added as more teams usually attend the Road America event. Porsche will get better tires so look for a Ford, Ferrari, Corvette, Porsche, BMW dual in GT Lemans class.


    WeatherTech SportsCar Championship |


    IMSA / Continental Road Race Showcase Elkhart Lake's Road America, Inc.



    If you have never been to a pro event at Road America or a real road course track it will change your perception of speed in one day....

    Just got back and this is one of the best Road America IMSA events I have seen in years...The Ford GT was very nice, and the 488's and Lamborghini's were also great. Best sounding GTLM car had to be of all things the Porsche works cars....I don't like the Turbo sound coming from both the Ferrari 488 and Ford GT...The 458 sounded a lot better.


    Just look at all those Lamborghini Trofeo cars, and 5 are not in the photo.


    The P1 photo is of the style of prototypes IMSA will use beginning in 2017. They also announced the 2017 schedule in a very nice press conference everyone was invited to. The only major changes are they flip the Circuit of America's and Laguna Seca dates around.
