IMSA Sportscar Championship...Motul Petit Le Mans

Such awesome racing and intense competition with multiple lead changes in this ten hour "sprint" yesterday....Road Atlanta's annual race never disappoints.

So great to see world-class sports car racing playing out this late in the season.

I was there yesterday, hadn't been in 20 years (the year Bill A flipped the LMR). It's an incredible event to attend, and I highly recommend it.

SO awesome!
Tell us about your experience; the TV coverage was awesome and the signifiant number of lead changes was intense; the onboard footage of the DPi cars carving their way through the lower classes....AT SPEED was incredible; did you have specific seats and if yes, which turn were you at?

I really want to see this race in-person....it's on my bucket list.

Unfortunately my son and I weren’t able to attend this year. Got to see some of the race on TV. Those final 5 minutes were pretty intense. How was vendor row this year? What did BMW have on display?

Vendor row was there, but about 50% of the normal amount of vendors. No BMW booth, no BMW hospitality, no BMW corral.

Indeed!
The final minutes were CRAZY!!!! Really intense to see the three classes flat-out and aggressively taking risks for track position.

They cancelled the BMW corral for Sebring next month as well.
