So after a week in Seattle (working) I came home for a day at the office only to find out I was off to Miami on Friday. I was not happy as I was hoping to get out of work a bit early and head up to the race to camp out overnight.. owell.
I woke Saturday in such a great mood. I was stoked, it was 10hrs of Petit Le Mans. I headed up around 9:45am w/ the turbo loving every moment of the cool morning air. The dub hasn’t stretched his O.Z’s in a while so we we’re movin!
The race was great! Well the first 30sec’s we’re not fun as Lehto (Champion Audi) and Hayanari Shimoda (Zytek) hooked up and spun into the kitty liter with Lehto hitting the wall. After some fixing the #1 Audi R8 was back on course only to have another bender w/ an Aston Marton and pulling off a 3rd place finish. Thats climbing back from 30 laps/45 minutes down. The Audi R8′s are just plain ruthless. As the saying goes, “they take a lickin and keep on tickin!” this is why they will go down as the best car in autoracing history!
Here are my pics from the day: (not good. was more into watching than taking)
