Round 3: Lime Rock 8-9 July 2011

The first on track activities are less than 2 days away. It will be a compact race weekend. All practice and qualifying takes place on Friday with the race on Saturday.

There are no LMP2 cars this round, but we have an additional LMP1 car bringing the total to 3.

Entry List

Schedule

Don't forget the race will be streamed live on ESPN3 or the ALMS site depending on where you live.

Also has anybody heard what track layout they will use? Specifically which versions of the Uphill and West Bend sections will they use?

The preview on DSC said they were only skipping the West Bend chicane.

Thanks for the info. Running without either chicane would be madness. I saw on a Jaguar story that PJ Jones has the all time lap record at Lime Rock of 43 seconds, but that was without either chicane. so I was thinking maybe they were removing the chicanes to make the old guy comfortable!

That Jag lap was with the pre 2008 iteration of the track with the concrete uphill chicane just at the crest of the uphill. None the less, a very quick lap. I believe in 2007 one of the RS Spyders did a lap in the 44's, and that was during a practice session. Qualifying was rained out that year. I think the new uphill chicane is slightly slower than the old uphill chicane, and with the slower cars, I think we'll see 47's or 48's from the LMP1 machines.

Same here, although the 4.00am Sunday start is nothing to get excited about.

I'm actually very excited, much more than when we were heading to Imola. Sure the LMP "battle" can be a bit lackluster, but with a GT2 field like this and wicked track as Lime Rock we're in for a treat again. The circuit isn't loved by everyone (incl drivers), but I think it's still a worthy event! Got a little worried last year when those grim rumours started to appear...

Does anyone know the latest weather forecast for the weekend?

The race should be dry, but a chance of showers on Friday's practice.
