Another Porsche 962C, this one driven by Aaron Hsu. Aaron overtook the pole positioned Charlie Agg's Nissan R90C at the start and was having a great fight with him for the lead until the car hit head gasket problems.

This is the very fast Nissan R90C driven by Charlie Agg. Agg scored the pole position and cruised to the victory after Aaron Hsu's Porsche 962C abandoned.

Powered by a 6,3-liter Chevrolet engine, Ron Ciaravella's Spice thundered through Elkhart Lake long straights. The car qualified well in third place, but did not fulfil the expected performance in the race.

Great pictures. Wow. I must get to see some Group C this year. Last years race at the Silverstone Historic Festival was fantastic. Brought back memories of watching it for real...

Remembering Bob Akin

Steve Southard drove his ex-Bob Akin Porsche 962 with a black stripe painted over the number of the car, remembering the late Akin, recently killed in a Historic GTP qualifying session in Road Atlanta.

Bob is missed by us all.

MickJ,

Man, if I only could go to Elkhart Lake in two weeks... Let me tell you that my girlfriend found a sticker with the following content in the official Road America merchandise shop: "We interrupt this marriage for the start of the racing season"... She almost bought it (I think I should have bought it!)

This is a lovely Rondeau M-382C, driven by Steve Simpson.

It looks like a guppy fish (especially that one with the VSD livery!)

Hello, Adam Ashmore,

Sadly, I never saw a Group C race. I grew up in Brazil, and sportscar racing was something completely unknown there. Since I move abroad - quite many years ago - I am trying to make up for the lost time, but sadly it will never be the same...

I just love the sound of rotary engines. What a pity I could not record the notes sung by the Kudzu-Mazda DG3 driven by Dennis Spencer, but I keep them very much alive in my mind, as my ears are still buzzing from last weekend!

All shapes, all colours, all engine sizes. That's what racing should be.

The pack storms through the Thunder Valley, between Canada Corner and the Billy Mitchell Bridge.

Dear Paulinho,

Especially for you, Le Mans memories: a beautiful Porsche 962C, driven by Alec Hsu.

Regards to your Dad!

Dump your girlfriend and take me to Elkhart Lake with you (we can pick up more chicks at the track)!
