Two Ndinjas finished 25th and 26th in the two World Series by Renault races in Missano this weekend. Technically he was unclassified since he finished several laps down, or didn't finish at all. In two weeks they go to Spa Francorchamps, the best racetrack in the world.

The Acura ALMS teams will be announced Friday. It is rumored that Andretti Green will field two cars, Adrian Fernandez will pull out of Grand Am and field two cars, and Duncan Dayton/Highcroft Racing will have one car. It is also believed that both Rahal and Newman/Haas applied for teams as well.

If anybody tried to call me this weekend, it didn't work.

Formula 1, dead.

Ten days until the new Champ Car Panoz DP01.

That makes a possible 5 Acura cars in P2. That seems high. I would think 3 tops.

It could be one car for each, it could also be none of those teams, that's just what "people" are saying. Considering right now there are 3 cars in the P2 category since Mazda is taking a month off to repair the Limerock damage, anything will help. Expect a lot more Porches too in the near future when the factory Penske operation shuts downs and the cars are supplied to privateer teams just like Acura is doing.

I sat in on an SAE web conference at work this afternoon and they were talking about the Diesel car in the American market. Three of the four presenters mentioned the Audi R10 in their presentations and the wins at LeMans and Sebring, one was even quick enough to mention Saturdays win in Utah as well. Obviously in reference to trying to change the public perception of the Diesel cars.
