Nice Pictures Frank. You drove an excellent line on the track that night...I should know...you passed me a couple of times and I had a birds eye view!

yeah, but the Ferrari's are much better braking and cornering, I am lucky I have an HP advantage, you know the saying I think it goes

"HORSEPOWER THERE IS NO SUBSTITUE!" or something like that!

I LOVE Le Mans.. My Dad and I went there when I was 12 years old and I didn't sleep for about 48 hours.. So much to see, bright lights, fairground rides, good food cooking at all hours, the noise of the Cars.. Amazing experience, I would HIGHLY recommend going at least once in your life...

Man that sounds like an unreal experience.

We should get a group together and go down to Daytona Beach for the Rolex 24 next January.

HA!!! In the second picture, I was wondering how the hell you managed to secure a tripod to your rear decklid/spoiler and also how it would affect your aerodynamics on the straights...

Nice pictures. I just got back this weekend from Grattan with the RSR PCA club. Saw my first 997 GT2 in person. WOW this car had $40,000 in options, interior was amazing.

I had a ton of fun and was probably the fastest car at the track. Only two incidents. One a Cayman racecar spun and hit the fence. Some cosmetic damage and had to reset his alignment.

Second was the last session, guy in a Audi TT hit the fence pretty hard and had left front quarter panel damage.

Otherwise i got 13 sessions in, wasted my left front tire and wore out my brake pads!

One of mine:

Looks like a great time - some of my friends are talking about going to Gratten on July 10th with Alfa Romeo. Not sure if I'm going or not. I like the looks of the 'toliet bowl'
