Finally back home. Pretty miserable. Had to watch it alone as my sister and BIL had to leave before the delayed start. The racing was decent. Got to see Sato screw up twice, so I got my money's worth.

Looking forward to next year.

I bailed and watched it on the couch. Caught the Pirelli GT race and the Indy Lights one (they really need more than 11 damn cars).

As for the timed race - they were supposed to have the lower level Pirelli race after the Izod so maybe they were trying to save time for that.

Sucks about the weather but I bet Saturday was nice.

That Pirelli series has some nice cars (Aston, Lambo, Audi R8, Ferrari, Mercedes) - odd to see a Kia on the podium in the same class that has Caymans.

Makes you wonder if you bought the wrong car?

Speaking of Pirelli, I've started really getting into sports car racing this year (Tudor, PWC, etc) and loving it. Haven't figured out why I waited so long before watching it.

I made an effort to get to the track specifically for the sports car racing - the Indy racing at that track isn't that exciting IMO - not enough passing room but the sports cars always have some action going.

I would have to agree with the bolded part. The one and only year I went Will Power started from the pole and lead pretty much every lap and won the race. It was not very exciting to watch.
