Petit Le Mans 2019 - Road Atlanta

October 9th - 12th

It's my annual fall trek two counties over to one of my favorite places in the world, during my favorite season (which just arrived today) for one of my favorite events.

This year, the race starts at 1205 PM Eastern Standard and ends 1005 PM (2200), so make those changes to whatever you've been doing. Track time starts Wednesday. Weathertech Series doesn't go on til Thursday. One race on Thursday. Bunch of races Friday along with qualifying for Weathertech.

It'll be weird seeing the Corvette C7Rs, current version of Porsche RSR, and possibly/probably Ford GTs and Nissan DPi racing for the final time.

Still excited for the race though, I hope to get there before noon Friday.

It will be a LONG Monday tomorrow before loading the truck up on Tuesday for my fall vacation. Here's to the rain coming early and dampening the clay dust but not Tuesday afternoon.
Hopefully the Vettes go on to good homes like the GT1s have in a few cases. And hopefully we see/hear them back on track this spring at The Mitty

If everything goes normal, I think Acura takes the win and the titles in prototype. I think Porsche wins GTE and takes the titles and in GTD I think it'll be Acura too.

THanks for making the thread mr field. I have so much left to do to get ready for this, and it might be my cars final, or penultimate trip to Road Atlanta.

The racing is going to be great, the weather is going to happen, and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.

What the hell is this BS? Guess Corvette didn't want to pony up for a C8 this early.

From Road Atlanta's page: supplying a 2019 BMW M4 CS to pace the field of IMSA WeatherTech Championship contenders and a specially modified 2019 BMW M5 Competition to serve as Safety Car

BMW of North America will host the North American premiere of two new BMW M models: the all-new, 600 hp, third-generation, track-capable 2020 X5 M Sport Activity Vehicle and X6 M Sport Activity Coupe

UMMMM, NO, bad BMW. X things should not be track-capable. Maybe capable of pulling your track toy but not on the track.


And I received confirmation, the free IMSA gift is ONLY for the first 1,969 on SATURDAY morning. The diehards and campers who want to be there all week get nothing.

Agree on the "sport activity vehicles". You'll have to get up early Saturday and drive out and then directly back in to receive your prize. It's probably just an autographed glossy of Bibendum or a free can of Coke and a frozen Bubba Burger or something anyway.

Fun fact: Bib autographs are verboten.

The dilution of the BMW M brand has been sad to watch from behind the keyboard. You get the feeling that if they put the energy and effort correctly into sport sedans instead of humpback SUVs you would end up with a more enjoyable sedan. Having driven the X6M on a track, I don't feel they wasted their time.

It's easy to make the humpbacks as fast in a straight line, but I guarantee you won't notice the difference while driving the M cars and M humpbacks legally on a street. Even on a track you would have to be fairly experienced to know what is missing in the handling to be sad after driving the humpback.

It doesn't solve the problem of them being the second ugliest, as a group MB and Audi included, thing on the road behind the Rolls SUV.

Anyone else got any thoughts /feelings on the later start time? I mean, I still wish it was 394 laps but I'm sure it won't change my actual enjoyment at the track...
