Thanks for asking your son to take photos. If he can, wonderful. If not, I understand

In action again this weekend at Lime Rock. The 2-hour race will be live-streamed at imsatv.imsa.com on Saturday (July 20) starting at 11 AM EDT.

The team also seems to have picked up a new sponsor, alfa9supply

Car #3 qualified 2nd (of 12 in the TCR class), and car #5 qualified 12th.

The TCR cars are as fast as the GS class cars around the short, tight Lime Rock track.

Should make for an interesting race because cars in neither class have any reason to give up position to the other class.

Please, anyone who attends the race or can watch the coverage on imsa.tv tomorrow, send me an email with what you've seen. I'm at the AROC convention and will be tied up all day tomorrow. I'll work in whatever you send me into the next article on the TCR efforts for Alfa Owner magazine.

Ciao,

Mike

#3 never really recovered position after being collected by the Porsche Cayman that spun in front of it midway through the race. It lost 10 sec and four positions.

@MALDI are you going to Elkhart? We have a group of 8 or so that is going for the 3rd year.
Great track even GREATER people. Just a fun weekend. I'll buy a round at Seibkins!
