wow, .5 sec faster a lap after the first practice. Hope they keep it up, they certainly have the drivers and team for it!

I can see it now, clipping the heels of the big guys this year and next year, then the year after they take the same car and turbocharge it and kill everything out there, then ALMS changes the rules to try and give the french teams an advantage, and the Porsche is no longer legal to compete.

No wait, that's the FIA. They don't run ALMS and they don't have Panoz in their back pocket, do they?

Well ....
The radio coverage of qualifying was pretty good.
The official results should be up soon. Porsche on pole for LMP2 with 1:15.6.

Leitzinger did soma amazing laps in Dyson's Lola to drop the LMP1 track record to an amazing 1:14.1 or so.

It was interesting to hear Maassen claim Porsche has never tested the RS Spyder set-up in the wet. (you think?)

Best,
Grady

Awesome car...I hope they whip LMP2 and are nipping at LMP1's heels.

RS Spyder sets fastest lap in class by nearly .3 sec! (Practice 3)

No, Sammy, the FIA don't own the ALMS, but the specs are leased from them, and the do own LeMans.

And there's always John Bishop. You "old guys" (like me) remember him.

My mistake, it was the Zytec that qualified at 1:14.185. Leitzinger was second with a 1:14.906. Third was the other Dyson Lola at 1:14.991 and fourth the Audi R8 at 1:15.392 all in LMP1. Fifth was the RS Spyder at 1:15.606 for pole by 4.453 seconds(!) and new track record. The next LMP2 was 1:20.059.

There are eight GT3 RSRs entered in LMGT2. Long live 911s.


Here is the
Track Map for Laguna Seca.


Here are the qualifying results from Friday afternoon.

Best,
Grady

Just got back from the track, I hung out in the Penske pits as they
prepared for qualifying this afternoon. Penske has an amazing organization, equipment on a par with anyone's, very good
teamwork and an incredible car. There are two obvious camps, the factory guys reading the data and obviously offering information and help to the team and the Penske guys themselves, working like a really well oiled machine. There is only one chassis at Laguna, I don't know about engines. The transporter is beautiful as well. The other LMP2 guys know they
have their work cut out for them. I think just finishing 4 hours tomorrow will be a victory, I think the team has higher goals.
The press is everywhere, probably one of the biggest stories we've had at the track in a long time. Roland Kaussamel (sp?) was in the middle of everything, the brain trust for sure.
If you can come out tomorrow, do it. It will be fun.

I know, the problem is I'm supposed to be working. I think tomorrow I'll sneak a camera in and do what I can to get some
photos. Penske is pitted just across the fence from me so
I'll get over there and get some close-ups. Tonight I'm repairing trophies for the Speed World Challenge race on Sunday, really glamorous, this racing business.

Interesting that the car # is #6. That was Mark Donohues number in the 917/10 & 917/30.

I think the car is running under the 67 number for this race, if memory serves. I'll do my best to get some photos, it's frustrating to be right next to all these cars and not be able to
take advantage of it. By Sunday night my voice is gone, my ears are shot and I've had a great weekend. We now have an elevated podium for the victory celebration so I'm also worn out from climbing stairs. No complaints though.

The next LMP2 was indeed 4.5 sec behind, but had some problems during qualifying and did few laps. Earlier they set their best practice lap just .3 behind the Porsche, so they could still be a threat.
