MaskedRacer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridMaskedRacer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. GTLM's better keep it clean this time!

2. I wonder what the DPI pole will be this time. If you compare it to the pole in 2015. I bet it will be a good 8 second difference. Between the track repave and the new car formula.

3. Why the heck do they start the race at 10:00 am! Been this way for a long time now. I always hated that. People do go to Church you know. 12 noon would be much better.

This.

While I'd love for it to be a Saturday race that runs from like, 2p-8p, I understand why they do what they do. It's a 5 hour trip home for me and I work Monday morning, so it all works out.

I get this as I go to services, but won't this Sunday. I'll be visiting wife's fam and per my usual, I'll force them to watch motor racing And it will be 9 am where I'll be.

In addition, they make these marvelous things called "mobile devices" and "ear buds". Work wonders in the "back corner". It's how I watched the last North London Derby at White Heart Lane a few weeks ago.... (just pulling your chain a wee bit).

I know. I'm going to hell.

Well, a Cadillac is probably going to win so there's no sense in watching.

10-4 also means it works in Europe. UK time that's about 3pm till 9pm. More international audience.

Does this mean you'll drink from a boot, too? I need to get that way for this one day. Do they still allow camping in the Bog?

Potentially!

...and yeah, but it's all manicured and nice and has roads going through it, so less a bog, and more like the rest of the tracks camping areas.

Scorchess has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Looking forward to watching the GTLM battle, 6 hours is so much better than these short races lately.

In all seriousness, I can't wait for this one. The lack of Risi is a bummer as I feel like they'd be strong this weekend, but this is a great field otherwise.

Will the Mazda last for 6 hours? I sure hope so. I think they're a little closer to the front now judging from the improvements over the past couple races. I'm eager to see the speeds these guys reach too.
