Spectating weekend! Road America Aug 8-11. Friday...

After CTSCC qualifying we walked through the pits.  We also later caught Rolex GT & DP qualifying.  Rounding out the rest of the afternoon was ALMS practice.  We also spent some time watching cars go through tech, and a few drivers get their gear teched just like the much much lower weekend racing we do!  I would estimate we covered 5-8 miles criss-crossing around Road America. 
Races scheduled to start Sat morning!!!!!!

Here's a few additional shots of cars from Friday going through tech and a wreck of a very expensive ALMS LMP car:

Spectating weekend! Road America Aug 8-11

Could not pass up this opportunity to visit Road America as a spectator.  A combined weekend of the newly formed GRAND-AM / ALMS Series takes over Road America's 4-mile circuit.  Not being much of an ALMS (American Le Mans Series) fan, I was much more interested in the Grand Am and Continental Tire Sport Car Challenge (CTSCC) races. 
We showed up early Friday morning for CTSCC qualifyin g.  First up was the ST class and directly after was the bigger bore GS class.  Some pics of those specific car classes are below.  Tons more pics and short vids coming.  It was a super cool weekend and we had full access everywhere around Road America including the pics.  So cool!
