Any word if they gave the Porshes some extra weight and/or restrictions after sweeping at Denver?

Mosport might suit the Cadillacs though. Andy gets to carry another 40 extra pounds though (up to around 180 now). I think Max might pull off a win here. Archer is too heavy to keep up. Max only has 40 lbs reward weight and this is Cadillac's type of track.

Flyboy,
If you sign up for the Corvette Coral (http://www.mosport.com/roadhome.htm) ticket and show up there early on Sunday morning you may be invited to do lap Mosport as part of the Corvette parade. I did it last year. They actually were very happy to have a CTS-V in the parade and the crowed loved her. :thumbsup:
I may only be there Saturday.

Hi Flyboy,
Sorry I missed you at Mosport. My cell crapped out on me. Did you see the GT race on Saturday.
Poor Papis, he was knocked around pretty badly. :thepan:
Our local hero Ron Fellows again saved the day for the V's. And he is not even a regular driver for the Vs. :)
Great write-up here. (http://www.world-challenge.com/news/05press174.html)
Ron of course races the Z-06R Corvette in ALMS GT class. He finished second on Sunday. See here (http://www.americanlemans.com/news/Article.aspx?NewsID=1468).
What a weekend for him. :highfive:
Considering Ron is born in 59, same year as I. There is still hope for me for a career in racing. :p :histeric:

Harold,

Sorry we didn't get together. Yup, saw the race and the "Crash". I was on the hill between turns 1 and 2.....or maybe 2 and 3. Had a great view of everything. Fellows really did well for the team. I was in the Team Cadillac area most of the time.

Can't wait to see the race on TV. I heard Archer and Liddel finished behind Pilgrim so his lead on the championship is 7 pts now. Of course he probably picked up a few extra pounds.

Papis probably lost his weight since he was able to return to the race but finished way below 6th.

Fellows is a great driver. He did what Cadillac hired him to do.

The championship goes down to the final race. Laguna should be a good track for the V. Papis will be light as possible and Fellows/Pilgrim should finish up in the top 5.
