Went to Watkins Glen to see the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race. It was supposed to be a 2.5 hour race but half of that time was with the safety car for silly reasons. Had dinner at the Seneca Lodge, that was good. They have the race winner wreaths from a bunch of the Formula One races from way back plus Justin Wilson's. His is still green the others are gray.
First baby duck in the pool.
This guy got the pole, the announcer was ecstatic.
The new bodywork on the Daytona Prototypes make them look much better in person.

Cyndy was a grid girl.
Good job, probably the second most important part of the race. The win shot is obviously the most important part. She checked, Dalla Lana, not Auberlen.
Braking for the bus-stop.
View from the relatively new grandstand looking at the last turn. Very tall, you can see the esses, and backstretch from there, but they are quite far away.
Both Aston Martins at the end of the race, the first died exiting the boot with two laps to go and the second on the last lap entering the boot.
Two Saturdays ago, I took the wrx to Homestead for a track day event. Do to track improvements, we used the Grand-Am road course layout, which utlizes oval turns 3 & 4. Click here to see a video of my car passing on the banking and click here to see a photo album of my car on track from the event photographer. Also I have a sample in-car video from my car, however this was filmed during the final session when i realized that I had brake issues, as evidenced by the two cracks I found in my front brake rotor. Therefore, these were not my best laps of the day.
The air tanker that crashed on Sunday in Utah while performing suppression activities on the White Rock Fire was not one of the ones in the images I posted in July 2010, but the same model and owner as the P-2Vs numbered 10 and 55 that I did post.
