Looks good to me!
Would look even better if it was the actual 911 GT1 '98 running around the race. But this is the next best thing

That is fantastic! I can't wait to see the GT1 on track, one of my favorite cars off all time.

This isn't exactly new, but wanted to link to the BOP summary for this race:

https://racer.com/2018/10/08/imsa-co...petit-le-mans/

Main takehome is that the Acura DPi's get more boost.

I like the Paul Miller Lambo color scheme. Never liked the red. That color just does not fit on a Lamborghini. Certain colors you can associate with certain makes now. For Lamborghini it is the lime green. So at least they got that trim going on with the black.

The last I heard it sounded like the storm was to blow through leaving a very nice weekend. Have there been any changes?

Current forecast suggests all the rain will hit today and tomorrow, and it will apparently be sunny, cloudless and with 0% chances of rain on Fri/Sat.

Yup, after it blows through a little east and south of the Road Atlanta, it's going to be a beautiful weekend.

I'm unfortunately east and south of Road Atlanta so hoping there's no repeat of Irma last year and I can get out of town once everything clears out mid day Thursday.

Ahead of hurricane Michael, just about the only place it's raining in Georgia is at Road Atlanta. It's a soupy mess but they still have some green sessions with all the WeatherTech team haulers currently arriving.

Everybody coming in today drive safe and batten down the hatches tonight!

Close enough!

Areas just south and east of Jackson and Hall Counties are now under a state of emergency. Tornado watch until 2AM for Athens-Clarke County. Hopefully all that stuff misses the track and me! There were already tons of people there when I left late morning.

Instead of naming counties, for those very few of us that haven't a clue what they mean in regard to RA, how about just giving us an idea how far and what directions it is from the circuit.

Anywho, try to stay earthbound and dry.....

From 1998 Petit Le Mans qualifying times:

Porsche GT1 98: 1:13.7
Porsche GT1 (champion): 1:16.3
Panoz GTR1: 1:16.9


The GT1 98 would fit just behind the DPI grid today. The Champion car and hte Panoz are still faster than the GTLMs.
