You can't, they haven't allowed spectators to watch testing since they rebuilt the grandstands a few years ago. You can pay $25 for the all access track tour and hope there's cars on track for the 10 minutes they let you in the stands.

Lots of old faces though, would have liked to have seen one new talent in there.

Hopefully we can get a better rendering of the livery of that car. So a better screen shot of it can be made.

Yup, cause the season long codriver is such a household name? She's recently started racing Super Trofeo so not exactly recycling old faces. And do you want Kat to just leave racing cause you think she's too known now?

Looks like the rumors from mid-summer on Racer have been confirmed now, 3GT and Lexus are done. Sounds like they (Lexus) believe they will be back on the grid next year and MP had reported a few open-wheel teams had been sniffing around Lexus when it came to light the contact was up and there were no talks.

Also seems the proverbial "interested parties" have been talking with Nissan regarding the DPi project. Would be interesting to see who wants to pay the ransom to IMSA to run the project, Patron had been funding it and Nissan was very hands-off but who knows maybe Nissan wants in now.

that would be nice to see somebody continue with the Nissan cars. Can definitely be fast in the right hands.

Looks like Vasser-AIM got the Lexus deal for next year. No word on drivers at this point.

Wonder if anyone was sitting on Winder Highway with a stopwatch, tire test yesterday with Pipo running the 31 for the first time and on the new Michelin tires.

Should have been a good comparison for the team if conditions were similar to Saturday. As Pipo said, he can't make a comparison on the car or tires because there is no cross reference. But I'm sure Nasr and Curren (if also present) could have given some feedback on the cars difference between the tires.
