    A quick bump, want to make sure everyone sees this. Tricky place, few passing zones, very quick lap times!

    I'll be there. I'd like to have a few pit parties with the GT3s going out first to provide some practice for overtaking and being overtaken..

    Exactly. This could be the ugly race that Lime Rock was supposed to be!

    Thanks for the host. Hit some really weird lighting effects with all the clouds and the sun low on the horizon blasting some light in under the clouds. Good times!

    Had a big crash in T1 with a GTE early and the driver seemed very surprised that the GT3s were so slow through that corner. We decided that the entry into the Keyhole and the end of the long straight are much better passing spots. GT3s should hold a line on the left side and slow a little early to let the overtaking car get clear on the inside. GTEs should flash their lights to signal their intentions. For some reason, it seemed like they were able to overtake from farther back than usual, so we need to communicate clearly.

    Again, it's a tough track but if we can survive Lime Rock, we can survive here as well.

    And this is why we need these practice sessions, it's like a driver's meeting to get everyone on the same page going in.

    Unfortunately something has come up and I will be missing this race, so best of luck to everyone, hope it's a fun time!

    Oh, and I agree on the time of day setting. This track and it's lack of lighting along with the sun setting, the end of the race will be tough. I think Afternoon would be a better start time.
