Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge

Round 6 of the ALMS 2012 season is less than 2 weeks away, and we get to see the debut of the Vipers!! The entry should be a bit larger compared to Mosport, but most of the additions will likely be in the challenge classes. This is a double header weekend with Indycar, so the track should be packed with fans.

I though Indycar was skipping Mid Ohio this year? Excited to see the Viper debut in ALMS once again. Maybe not this year, but next year for sure the Viper vs Corvette battle will be fantastic. Looking forward to the race Mid Ohio is a fantastic track.

Sure. Mid-Ohio is my least favourite track of the season actually, though it's obviously much better for sportscars than it is for IndyCar. There's just something about it that doesn't thrill me... but oh well, I'm sure it'll be a fun weekend rain or shine and obviously the Vipers bring extra extra excitment.

US viewers particularly, please remember that the race will be not broadcasted live on ESPN3, only on ABC (and even that cuts off the first hour)

ESPN/ABC have really messed up the live TV broadcasting stuff this year, it's sad when you realize that a 90min highlight package of a 6 hour race is more comprehensive than a live broadcast of a 2h45min race that cuts off the first hour for no apparent reason.

ESPN America is also doing one-hour highlight reels for the series, and as funny as it sounds I actually found them to be more informative than the ESPN2/ABC ones. You know, they actually show some coverage of qualifying and stuff. Plus you get Richard Nichols's voiceover, of whom I hadn't heard commentanting since 2009 FIA GT at Zolder.

Of course, it's always recommended to see the Hindy/Shaw version before watching any of these

Mid-Ohio is actually a pretty good track to see the cars at, but I agree not very thrilling on TV.

TF110, the ALMS uses the same layout they've always used. All the professional series, as far as I can tell, have used the 2.259-mile configuration ever since they added that link road back around 1990 to bypass the first portion of "the Keyhole".

(With the full "Keyhole", the lap is 2.400 miles around.)

Does anybody have any idea what happened to Performance Tech Motorsports and NGT Motorsport? Both of them have been missing from the races for quite some time now. Heck, Performance Tech was listed on Mosport's entry list but they never showed up for the actual race!

Will be there, sadly my camera will not. May be my last ALMS race in a while as I'm saving up a trip for the Belgian Grand Prix next year.

Mid Ohio isn't the most exciting track, but it is one hell of a deal. $110 for three days of Indycar, American Le Mans, SCCA WC and a "road to indy" race all with paddock access.

The proxy trick of awesomeness, eh?

Gotta agree with FCP, that's some really good value for money, though as a package Long Beach is better (IndyLights & Celebrity Pro/Am are more interesting than the other spec single seater supports)

I've always liked Mid-O from the standpoint that it is fun to drive. There aren't many passing zones, but that isn't an issue with multi-class sports car racing where the pasting is built in.

Entry list is out
http://www.imsaracing.net/2012/event...try%20List.pdf

03x P1
04x P2
08x PC
13x GT
04x GTC

The Vipers are there to brighten up the day as expected, plus Dempsey is back in P2. Oddly enough GTC stays at four with only the teams from Mosport returning

Obviously P2 drops to 3 when Tucker eventually parks the #95
