Yes, I hate it. less daylight racing. How can anybody watch this on TV. Its just headlights blinding the TV screen. Daytona is the only one that is watchable cause of the track lights. Better to watch at night too. Sorry if I am not this night racing purist. Some might see me as this sportscar racing heretic. I don't see the appeal. Some of it is fine, but I actually like to watch the cars race.

You sir are king of bad takes.

More night racing is by quantifiable universal truth, better than less night racing.

Not super excited about driving home half an hour later than usual though. But ultimately it sounds like a step in the right tv direction.

More night running is almost always good. And Road Atlanta has decent coverage with lights for camera views to not be just headlights too much.

Dear God are the Honda TCRs LOUD with backfire at 4. Almost every one of them makes a hella crack once they're up to speed.

Glad I got the chance to get by the circuit today. Beautiful day. Overcast for the most part but the sun did peak through for the last couple of sessions.

Here's a few photos I got of the teams unloading and going to tech.

I haven't seen a time yet but the announcement for C8.R is this afternoon some time apparently.

From S365 notebook
***Technical information on the Corvette C8.R will be announced Thursday during a presentation with GM and Corvette Racingís engineering team. It is expected to include confirmation of the carís normally aspirated 5.5-liter flat-crank V8 engine.
***At least one additional change to Corvette Racingís driver lineup is believed to be possible for 2020 beyond*Jordan Taylorís move to the factory squad, who is set to replace Jan Magnussen.

Sounds like the move was from GM not the team and the team didn't like it much

I have been playing around with pics from 2018 while learning new web techniques. Last year, I took a variety of hats from over the past 20 years and had photos with people associated with the hats. My favorite was when I was wearing my Doyle - Risi Ferrari hat. Wayne Taylor saw it and said, "Hey, that's the hat from when I won the first Petit Le Mans! Come into my paddock and show my team. Maybe, you will bring us some good luck!"

Good views from practice 2. After an overcast and cool start to the day, the sun came out and the weather is great.

He clearly bought a ticket for a pumpkin patch, then scratched out the name and wrote Road Atlanta. Smart.

Also is it just me or are more people realizing Petit is in October so it's time for pumpkins and halloween decor? I feel like it's everywhere this year.
