Got a couple little clips from the cars at the St. Pete Honda Grand Prix. Wasnt able to get off from work early enough to see the LMP's or GT's like I wanted to :( So I took a little video of the Light Indy's practicing.

Little snippet from today....

Good day for ALMS
- The AUDI TDI coming out on top

A couple notes:
- IMHO the 612 was the best sounding car out there. It gave me goosbumps everytime I heard it go by :eek:.
- The other best sounding cares we're the Corvettes followed by the GT40

- Best looking car had to go to the Martin. That is until the Viper took it out.

- Anyone know why BMW wasnt there. Are they suppose to be? :shrug:

Here is a clip: (the 612 is the red car towards the end. enjoy)

I was there. I was on an 84' Lazzara at Turn 10 (right across from your second clip) - that's the way to watch a race!!! I was glad the R10 came out on top - it was a nail-biter. I love how quiet they are; it's just so weird. I would have loved to punch out the LMP2 car that tangled with the other R10.

FWIW, I don't believe that is a 612 to which you are referring. I think it's a Risi Competizione F430 GT. I have a shot of it while I was in the paddock. I haven't downloaded any of the pics I took yet, though. I'll post it when I get around to it.

I was in the grandstands and walking around on sunday, Unfortunatly I coudn't make it in for the ALMS races. Rain sucks for speed, but does make alot more spinouts.

+1 on the Audi. I had my plugs out for a little while just to absorb the whole experience and the TDI was just eerie how quiet it was. I understood the driver had to adjust his driving technique due to the fact he didn’t know what his car was rev'ing by sound alone...

Ok, I must have my facts wrong. I assumed it was a 612. We are talking about the Red/Black Advant car, right?

You had a good seat! Was it your boat?

Actually.....

Here is the link to the car/team:

And I thought it was a 612 :wallbang:
Then, based on your prior comments, you must like big V8s. Because the Corvettes, Ford GT, and Panoz all run them. BTW, you're not the only one who didn't know what the car was, I had to explain it to my brother. Here's the Panoz up close. The Aston, since you mentioned it (007 was a DNS) - gotta dig the Union Jack on the roof. A couple of shots from the boat. And one of Gene Simmons, just 'cause! :D
