The California 8 Hours of the International GT Challenge series, along with the support races offered some good racing. The World-Challenge TC and the Mazda MX5 Cup races were particularly good.
Some commentators suggested the SRO pitstop rules were weird (minimum stop time), but I don't think they are any different than ChumpCar and certainly less weird/more fair than the bizarre "wave-by" procedures that are used by some series. WRT and Land intentionally violated the minimum time and took drive through penalties as the first offense penalty was less time than the minimum time, but they still weren't able to beat Magnus (who were told by Audi that the other Audi teams were going to do this, but opted not to take the risk. Second offenses were stop and hold penalties).
Hiking from the campground to the Corkscrew along the Rahal Straight.
Believing in orange.
Some cars on display in the paddock. The Team Land guys invited Silas and I into their garage on Friday.
We had a racing break with a trip to the Monterey Aquarium.
We also saw some wildlife at the track.
Some of us were really tired at the end of the weekend.

VIP (falkenstein at hairpin)
Two of Palm Beach county's finest racing teams.
Infield was packed with spectators.
Of all the tractor mowing photos Cyndy took, she was most proud of this one.
Night stint, she said the vibration was getting a lot worse, what to do?
