I am so glad they got this race in this year. There was a genuine concern that it may have been
canceled until next year.

As a former Porsche race car driver I was very disappointed by the performance of the 911 RSR. Did the organizers add some extra weight to the Porsche in order to give Aston Martin and Ferrari a better chance of beating them ??? I know IMSA usually tries to keep things closer to equal... Only 7 Porsche vs 12 Ferraris entered..

My first car, parked in the garage before my 18th birthday, was a 356 C, and my best friends mom had a Carrera 2 we used to sneak out at night.
There is a pretty cool Porsche thread Porsche 917
and for those who also like being on 2 wheels The Bravest Man on Earth?
Cheers
