2009 Petit Le Mans

Here are a small batch of pics I took yesterday at Road Atlanta. The weather sucked: Rained all day, and eventually (circa 4.5 hours into the race) it was red flagged. It did not restart and the race was called around 8pm. I'll post another batch later today.

Nice... too bad the race got rained out and they had to red flag it. For a second I though that was number three when he come flying and spin during yellow.

@ 2006 go zoom-zoom, you really should! It's quite an experience (providing it doesn't rain like THIS year). I'd like to get a group of 3's to head there in force one year. Amazing machines to take that abuse for so long.

Re: 2009 Petit Le Mans

How did the Lola Mazda's sound. I am still in astunishment that those cars run the Mzr.r 2.0 engine making 500 HP. That thing most be boosted at a very high psi.

Re: 2009 Petit Le Mans

It sounded akin to the GP cars of ol' (who ran turbo 4's running WAY over 700 HP). The engine sounds are very deceiving: Small displacement V8's sound like I4's, and some F6's sound like V10's. The MZR has proven to be a very competative and (sometimes) reliable power plant.
