Here's a link to the story and video. All I will say about the video is this: Lucas Luhr is hilarious! Don't make him mad! I was afraid he'd turn into The Hulk on a few occasions!

Is that Sascha Maassen they are chasing in the yellow RS Spyder throughout the first half? Looks like Penske’s ride...

Pretty good stuff, the article is a nice touch to show you some things to look for.

I like how you can hear the GT40 over the spyder and the audi (altho the R10 is scary quiet).

The pit lane stuff was more than interesting.

They were at 180mph at the end of shorline drive. Pretty impressive for a street course. Add in the 900lb-ft of torque, and the R10's are beasts...

I have this race at home on my computer.

Also...watch when they go into the hairpin before the pit lane straight (passed 95% of the competition there).

Do not anger Lucas Luhr! Much fist shaking will ensue! (4:28, 9:06, 9:15, 9:18, 9:22)

Do not delay Lucas Luhr on pit lane! Driving below the pit speed limit will inspire Luhr to push the Intersport-Lola to match his own speed. (9:08)

The Intersport team isn’t quite sure if the undesired assistance is necessary, as witnessed by the brake lights coming on. (9:09)

Lucas Luhr has a loud voice. You can hear him yelling at the Intersport car over the sounds of his V-12 engine! (9:19)

The Audi Sport team does incredibly fast pit stops. (9:29-10:02)

The Penske Porsche’s employ an innovative car widening technology of some sorts. It gets used at strategic places on the track, preventing the Audi R10 from passing. (3:20-3:25, 7:09-7:15)

Its over-use also gets a touch dangerous (5:50-5:55)

After many laps of dealing with Penske’s widening technology, Luhr executes a brilliant fake to the left, the direction he’d gone the last few laps, sees the Porsche respond and ‘widen’ to the left, and Luhr pulls to the right to get by. Nice. (7:25-7:29)

It’s wonderful to hear the chirp of turbo wastegates again—something that was a staple of turbocharged IMSA GTP cars, but had been lost for some time. Modern ALMS-spec turbo engines don’t make enough boost to warrant heavy use of wastegates to release excess turbo boost. (Yes, I know, I’m a geek). (2:21, 3:36, 7:45)

The closing rate of an LMP1 car over a GT2 car is alarming. (3:17-3:21,…)

Marco Werner is stunningly good at choosing when and where to pass cars. If Luhr is the hot-blooded half of the driving team, Werner’s the calm, collected, silent assassin. (10:02-14:37)

Finally, after winning, Marco lets his guard down and belts out a cheer and engages in some celebratory fist-pumping. Somewhere, the Intersport team thinks he’s also mad at them. (13:51-14:03)

It’s neat to see ‘Bib’, the Michelin Tire man awaiting Marco as he pulls into the post-race impound area. I have no idea why this amuses me. (14:19-14:25)

That was my favorite moment.

OK, turns out the player Speed is using just hates firefox.

1) The Audi sounds HORRIBLE, especially at low RPM. However, hearing the GT* cars it was passing in full song was glorious

2) Was the Audi lapping the Penskies that fast towards the end, or was the footage omitting the Penskies passing them back?

3) Does anyone else thing that the viewing experience would be immensely better if the driving who obtained the fastest lap time on the prior lap was awarded a horn (of either the Bombay cab driver or ah-ooo-gah! varieties) for the following lap?



Either that, or red shells.

That's odd--most of us use Firefox and do our beta testing on Firefox as well as IE.

Penske cars got back ahead during pit stops.

Either that, or all the driver seats have a low voltage *zap* that gets triggered when the leader is within 5 seconds. That might cure the blocking and door closing. Maybe.

Either that, or red shells.

Under Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008050209 Firefox/3.0b1, the player loads, but the player doesn't load any video. Actually, as of a few weeks ago, the player didn't even load, I just got the logo for the player, so some improvement is being made.

I had to launch safari to watch the video.
