    ^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.


    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.
