Carrera PanAmericana

On a slightly different note by now you know that we are fans of Rendez Vous by Claude Lelouch. If you are of a certain age, and an enthusiast or gear head at the time you went to see "Un Homme et une Femme". An informative story with background information of Rendez Vous and thoughts on Un Homme et une Femme....here.

ALMS at Mosport

At times you simply have to take in the entire 360 degree atmosphere of motorsports (racing), although you see more actual racing on TV, when you experience the entire spectrum of racing in person there is no substitute.

VP by the barrel + Extract the transmission folksWhat better way than at Mosport one of the Canadian shrines of racing, who has recently come under Canadian ownership. Yes...Mosport is a storied venue, and hopefully the Canadian owners will continue what the previous owner (Don Panoz) started. By the amount of folks that were present, motorsports is alive and well in Canada. 

To start a Sunday morning with the unique fragrance of racing fuel...yes that familiar fragrance wafting through the air. In addition its a glorious day, its warm on the direction of being hot, it will be totally cool.

Its the ALMS race with many familiar players on the scene...we appreciate fast cars, and the folks that make an effort to go fast.

Jake...Yes we have our own preferences, or soft spots, or whatever else you would like to call it. When you have preferences, you have a better understanding of the competition, rivalries, and the intellectual games that will get played out during the afternoon.

One must get up close and personal with this years GTI Class winner at LeMans, and take in the entire experience.

As well as understanding that their major competitiors for this race are set up next to them (BMW), and the other is not very far (Risi/Ferrari).

Access to the Patron Hospitality was so exclusive that there was hardly any folks all day. Almost comical, a good lesson that you can make something so exclusive that no one will show...although its only tequila.
