Just an fyi, if anyone can get to a TV today go to the Speed channel @ 1pm to see the Speed World Challenge GT race which features the Exige S racing against other cool cars.
The actual race was last Friday but it is airing today. :crazyeyes

Will they re air? I'm not home now so I can't set my DVR.

Any idea what modifications were done to the Exige?

I checked the guide and as far as I know it's not reairing. It's a condensed version of last week's race. Only 1 hour. Hyper Sport is the Exige sponsor. Their link is hypersportengineering.com.

I don't think you'll see the Exige in this race...

From what I've heard from those who were there, Hypersports didn't go to this race because the Exige was not ready. The engine they wanted to run was not allowed, so they are developing a new engine.

Speed's coverage of the World Challenge has gone downhill bigtime. I guess they need to run the cars in circles on an oval for them to become a higher priority.

A few years back they would show the races live or same day delay.

I thought Hypersport's Exige wasn't going to make its debut until Long Beach?

Wow. Maybe it's good the Exige wasn't there. Are those cars ever taking a beating!
Heavy rain, looks like they are racing on ice. From what I've seen half the race is under the yellow flag.

We were there and it was carnage. Only good thing was that the ChaseCam driver Randy Pobst won.

The Exige as mentioned, did not make the race.
