    Indy Car @ Sonoma 8/29-30

    Anyone attending this weekend? I rarely have time to follow and only watch the highlights. I'm sure this weekend will be a memorial for all that's happened in recent events.....

    I will be there Saturday and maybe Sunday.....

    World Challenge was very cool!
    I recognized one of the drivers from 7 years ago; he was an original Noble owner that had tons of custom parts from 1G.

    I had a chance to speak to Team Kia. I was interested in their transaxle- Xtrac. After each weekend, the engines are removed, inspected and replaced if necessary (they have one extra motor for each car). The technician told me that the exhaust manifolds normally crack as well as exhaust. They are based out of Georgia, but since Laguna Seca is in two weeks, they must have both cars prepped by tomorrow.

    The Porsche GT3RS is a beast. It took everything and the kitchen sink from Team Mclaren to win one race. Non-stop action between Porsche and McLaren and congrats. to both for a P1 during the weekend. If time allow, I'll watch them race at Laguna in two weeks.

    The World Challenge GT class run 1:33 + around Sonoma. A race prepped Noble with the same configuration is 1:35ish....
