^SpeedSource and Riley Technologies make the chassis for like $280,000

it is an all motor 3 rotor though.

it just retired at 10:45 :(

about race, this will be my 5th year watching most of the race.

i always try to see sebring, lemans, and daytona as i am huge fan of sports car racing.

also want to see how the drivers from nascar, cart, and others fare out on a classic enduro.

danica patrick, justin wilson, patrick carpentier, paul tracy, eddie cheever, rusty wallace and others are in the race this year.

for those that can actually watch a car race, this is one of my favs

yeah, they make the chassis, but I made the carbon bodywork for it. :D

yea and i saw that it had retired this morning right before we headed out for the track. do you know what made it retire? I had to miss a lot of the race since I went to bed at like 9pm to wake up at 4:30.
the 24 hour race is great because it brings in all kinds of drivers.
McNish was driving too, i thought that was awesome. then you got georgia's own Johnny O.
