Agreed, at no VIR. I didn't see that one coming.

I'm astounded Montreal, Homestead, and NJMP are on the schedule, but VIR is not. I'm also astounded that Lime Rock will not be on Memorial Day weekend, if it happens.

I requested to use some of my vacation time in mid-Feb when I saw the schedule this morning. It's going to be an awfully long time between Daytona and Barber, and I don't see the logic behind moving Homestead from early March when the weather is perfect to late April when it's probably going to be a lot hotter.

I'm aslo surprised at the Laguna date, mostly because it was listed on laguna's website as being in mid-July. It actually works better for the schedule where it is, though.

...and here's to hoping that the big early season hole in 2013 will be filled by a race at Circuit of the Americas with the V8 Supercars.

No VIR.... booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Getting the feeling from Twitter that a LOT of drivers are unhappy with this omission mainly... but also the omission of Lime Rock.

From what I've seen, there is a very good chance that Lime Rock will be the Finale. It also makes sense how it could end up as TBA, since the track offices lost power for more than a week because of the storm that hit up here. I don't think they got power back at the track offices until Tuesday.

I'm disappointed about VIR. A friend got me into F&C with the SCCA and other than one little incident with a Smash Miata rear window, I've had fun with it. I was really looking forward to Grand-Am being my first "big" race working a corner.... and now it's not going to happen.

Oh well, now we just have to convince all the disappointed Grand-Am drivers and teams to put something together for the 13hr "Charge of the Headlight Brigade" next year *hint hint*

My wife is glad to hear about the break between Daytona and Barber. She's due any day now and keeping me home for a couple of months is pretty high on her priority list right now.

The June 29-July 1 is the 6-hour, and August 10-12 race is with Sprint Cup, if it makes any difference either way.
