Negotiations? I would think the chance to embarrass a ford driver, and thereby proving it must be ford equipment overdog stuff making that orange car on the banner lead, would be enough incentive....

This would have been the real time to do it!!!!

Manley Machine!

"The faster you drive around the ring, the less you know, and maybe that's the best thing to do"

I could watch this stuff all day! But back to work...

Oh and Ted, cool stuff. I see they let regional ITC drivers out at the same time as GT1... Any footage of a night lap?

The safety vid rocked!... Especially liked your favorite section: "Achtung Langsame Fahrzeuge"

Damn. That lap in the F1 car is scary as hell. You would have to die, if anything happened in one of those cars. Little aluminum and plastic death machines.

I can see it now.

Kyle: Yeah, I'm here to drive the ZR1 today.
German Guard Dude: Your name again?
Kyle: Kyle. Kyle Watkins. I'm kind of a big deal...
German Dude (Distracted by the rerun of the Dukes of Hazard being shown on his 8-inch) comes back and says: We've been expecting you. Now I must see your papers!!
Kyle: Papers?? I don't need no stinkin papers!!! Now you must take me down to the pits to get to where the Corvettes are, yes?
German Guard Dude: Nyet. Says here, that's what your scheduled to drive for the 1.3L diesel-powered production lap record. Good luck Mr. Watkins. Conditions are good today. I hear the other 1.3's are getting air over the Flugplatz.

I'd fly over just to see the tryout. We could gather up some of the leftover cars from Set Up and IF they make it through your "installation period" we can then begin the negotiations for the Corvette upgrade...
Sorry for the modifications Tom. Couldn't resist

Ja.

Guess I should have had M. Allen play the role of the German guard dude.
