Baltimore Grand Prix - 2/3 September 2011

Thought I would start a race thread since this round is only 5 days away! There doesn't seem to be a lot of excitement about this round. The area had an earthquake and a hurricane, but everything seems to be ready to go for the race. A brand new circuit should leave all teams and tire makers on even footing, and we may see some interesting results in GT.

I'm excited, seeing sports cars in tidy little street circuits is always fun. Especially since we have no idea what to expect really

That weight break for porkies won't probably affect their pace too much, but Flizards were mighty fast at Long Beach. Expecting similar speed here

Lets hope that this one does not have railroad tracks, bumps the size of foothills, makeshift high school football stands and a 1st gear hairpin.

Glad there are only 2 of these every year.

I love bumps and two dollar chicanes, long live Reliant Park Speaking of which, I hope Indy makes comeback there someday so we'd have excuse to return as well

I haven't been to a street race since the early 90's, but I agree it is a fun atmosphere. I hope those forum members who are lucky enough to go to the race let us know how it was.

Wait I just checked the entry list, have I missed something or where have the two Robertson Fords disappeared?! Smaller GTC field as well.

There's no Le Mans test day during this street race, Andrea and David

Should be a great race as per usual in the ALMS.

So glad i can see this over the internet. And I agree we need to go back to Reliant Park, I was just watching the Champ Car race from 2007 about 2 hours ago, fantastic crazy track.

And now, they will close off a portion of downtown for some racing. Helluva couple weeks for these folks!

They are saying that because they didn't go to Long Beach, they don't have a baseline street setup. I'm not sure I'm buying that, let's hope there's nothing more to it.

Just read that from their facebook page. Must be the poorest excuse I've ever heard, this way they surely won't beat ESM in the team points...

I just hope there isnt any issues within the team, especially money problems. After their year so far with a podium at Le Mans and Lime Rock, it would be heartbreaking to lose this team.

If it was budget issues they would've probably dropped the second car already. They claim to be back at Laguna so I guess it's not all doom & gloom

By the way, their Road America race report claimed:
-- "Robertson Racing, as well as H, will be back in ALMS action at the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix on September 2/3."

Righto...
