    Attended a presentation on careers in racing at DIS this weekend put on by Chevrolet. In the room, Corvette driver Oliver Gavin, Crew Chief Dan Binks, and Doug Fehan, the Stan Lee of GM racing, with whom I had a 20 minute conversation on alternative fuels in racing and what changes were coming. A very nice guy and a treasure trove of information resulting from many years in the industry.

    As for the cars, GTLM in particular, after several years of listening, I can say that on acceleration, the best sounding cars are the vettes, sorry Chip (but congrats on qualifying 1st and 3rd on Sunday!). However, there was something about the Porche's downshifting from high speed that just about gave me a hard on, or at least the Fahrvergn├╝gen equivalent. :rolleyes:
