arakis has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Mika Salo and Pierre Kaffer in the #61, excelent

It does seem that Ferrari are putting some more into the Risi effort. Maybe winning at SLC and still having BMW take over the championship lead really peeved them.

The class is so tight right now, you need to take points off the other manufacturers for lower positions.

Risi probably are peeved, but to be fair if they'd set the ride height of #61 correctly for qualifying they'd probably have been 1st and 3rd...

Looking forward to a cracking race. Off to Newark tomorrow :-) Then a nice drive up to CT.

I don't know, points wise i think they did extreamly good, considering only the first car scores points for the teams championship, the secod risi car would have only made a slightly arger points difference to the other competitiors. The points of the team cars don't add up in alms

Risi has been strong this year at nearly every track they've been to, but Lime Rock is such a challenge with all the traffic and such a short circuit. I wouldn't be surprised to see a car win that hasn't won yet this season. BMW could be tough here, and I am just waiting for the Vettes to pull one out. The outcome of this race could be heavily dependent on the caution periods for sure.

Have they given up using the West Bend Chicane yet? Or do we have that pock up to look forward to again?

Too bad we'll miss a majority of it, I think its time to take a page out of the TNT Racebuddy book and do internet streaming of different camera angles and let us pick to follow the in-cars of the GT teams if we wish.

It should be a good race regardless, the problem is creme rises to the top and I think Highcroft will win again. This is Highcroft's home race just as much as it is Dyson, Scott Sharp's and BMW's. With Dyson's reliability problems unresolved thus far I just don't see them winning.

There has been a lot of drivers moving between cars this year in LMPC, and it doesn't bother me one bit as long as the cars are on the track!

I'm hoping for a strong effort from the vettes, and a Ferrari melt down. I don't really care who wins in the LMP class, it's not really the star of the show imo this year but it would be cool to see dyson break it's string of bad luck.

Isn't Lime Rock the track where Ferrari had a melt-down a few years ago with Salo and Enge knocking each other around a bit?
