Legge seemed to have the quicker car for the last hour, but made a lot of mistakes under pressure and while pushing on sadly.#~Long was on it last few laps and you kind of knew a move would come, shame as Kat made a great move.

Superb racing though

i was at the top of roller coaster looking down into hog pen for the last bit of the race, and that pass that Long put on Legge was awesome.

That was a good, entertaining race. I'm glad that I've joined the ranks of people using a VPN to get the world feed, because hearing people complain about the lack of racing shown on Fox brings back bad memories.

However... 18 cars on a 4 mile track is not enough. It's okay at Lime Rock, but I can't imagine the gaps in waiting for a car to drive by in person at VIR. It's the reason I decided to sit this one out after having attended every race since ALMS started coming there. The Prototypes were amazing to see at that track and they need to bring them back there.

Got back to the house last night.

WRS, I spent roughly the last 20 minutes in the bleacher there watching the Roller Coaster and the guys dropping down to Hog Pen. I also spent a good part of the Prototype Challenge race there; I've never seen so many cars come off the road in my life as I did watching them come into the right-hander at the top of the hill in the rain Saturday evening.

It was a little tough for me to follow some of the stuff. The cars with liveries that maybe don't stand out quite as much can be a bit tough to identify. It gets even harder when they're all clumped together so the engine notes are all mashed up as one.

I had a really good time. I will say, there are a few places I wish spectators could get to, or get closer to. I also think that zone by the Roller Coast could do with an extra PA speaker or two, and maybe a video screen somewhere there.

I also went down and spent the final portion of the Prototype Challenge race along the support pits at the South Paddock, and that was a pretty darn good view too.

Apart from the racing itself, the food at the track was good, though I decided to eat fairly light while I was there, and mainly just down liquid of one kind or another. I also got to catch up with our favorite Belgian lady bookseller, so that was quite nice as well.

Nice! I was just up the hill from there, with the big silver motor-toter Freightliner RV. (not mine, my bosses ) I totally agree that roller coaster and hog pen could use some more coverage with speakers and some kind of screen. It was a bit hard to follow; I was listening in to our next door campers who were streaming IMSA radio.

Agreed that the food there is pretty decent. Also there's a little taco trailer there for the IMSA races which is outstanding, and they're only$2 each. VIR is without a doubt, one of my favorite places ever.

I have to say, re-watching the first bit of the race I'm surprised the 912 got the penalty with the contact made between it and the #4 Corvette. Tommy bumped Bamber going through 4-5 on that same lap, then finished it off on the back stretch. At best I would think it would have been an NFA call.
