Thanks for the photos. That was a great race with an exciting finish, but even though the corvettes are 1 and 2 in points, I never seem to catch the races they win. Also what is wrong with ESPN that they make us stream the races live on the website and not show them on tv until a day later? Also will anyone here be at the Baltimore race?

I rode around in this Icon FJ yesterday to find a suitable place for photographs. While it is pretty drat cool I don't know how I feel about the $150k+ price tag.



Are there more photographs? Tell us more! I irrationally want an Icon FJ so bad.

Yeah, I just uploaded a few more. I have about a half dozen more to edit still but here is the gallery:

It is definitely a really sick vehicle and was a ton of fun to have out in the rain/mud. If I somehow fell into $150k I would go for the Bronco personally, but the FJ is awesome.

Do you have a picture of the dash that doesn't have the aperture stuck wide open? It looks gorgeous and I'm curious what gauge is below what I think is the speedo.

I've been looking at these, and I dare say it's one of the last of the models focused solely on going fast too. The Z4M doesn't compare because it's not as focused. Knowing BMW somehow they'll make the USS ///M6 run the 'ring faster.

That is the tv package ALMS negotiated with ESPN this year. It makes a lot of sense actually - the people that want to watch the whole thing live will (getting direct viewership stats in the process), and the casual fan who goes "oh hey some cool cars" while flipping through channels the next day get a nicely edited highlights package that can play up the excitement a bit. I love endurance racing, but it's more of a background noise kind of thing than something I actively watch most of the time. Listen for the announcers to get excited, then pay attention.

I'm sure if you spent one minute on Google you could probably find all of the photos you want that don't have "the aperture stuck wide open."

What about the E92 GTS? Good on BMW for continuing the "hardcore track variant" of the M3, the GTS seems like an evolution of the CSL.

Anyway, this is my favorite picture my buddy took that weekend. Granted it looks like rear end because I stole it off of his facebook for the sake of a picture thread. I can probably get the full rez version if someone really wanted it.

We've been going for the last four years or so. This year we had a group of six, and between us, we each payed about $200 bucks-which payed for the entire race weekend, four campsites, and all of our food and beer. It's such a great time, and the area and scenery is beautiful. Not to mention all of the awesome cars people drive up there.

Yep - the ALMS cars were easily the loudest the entire weekend at Long Beach. I'd say the Patron Ferraris might've been the single loudest cars there. The turbocharged Indycars can easily be done without earplugs, the naturally aspirated Indy Lights and other sports car series can maybe be done without them, but those big uncorked NA engines in the top level ALMS cars are just deafening.

I could swear that white car is a late 50s Buick of some sort, but I'm honestly not sure.

e: definitely a 1959 Buick. The slanted "angry eyebrows" were new for 1959 and they made them a lot less prominent and brought the headlights further forward for 1960.
