    I live 10 mins from the track. I'll probably go at least one day and watch. Looks like fun!

    Do you know if this will be televised? I love watching them on Youtube, but would really like to watch them on TV.

    I'll find out more info Friday when I get there, re access. Would it be that restricted for this series? Hoping you can just come and find us all, garages 28 and 39. I'm staying right by the track on Speedway Boulevard (as I have a broken foot at the moment, can drive auto, but can't see a rental company keen on giving me keys!). Both Saturday and Sunday races are early 930am and 945am for the Vipers. I see there is also a local entry Mickey Craig with his early Comp Coupe, 2003 in black / silver stripes.

    The GTS-R's have just arrived at the track!
    12 years after the Vipers won at the Year 2000 Daytona 24hours, C27 #92 is back, also with C20.
    Both are stunning cars:

    I think Nadine knows better than trying to fix something by kicking it. You need a hammer.... :)

    Ok I'm going to be a nitpick again, in one picture the 4 extra front bumper canards are visible but in the others they are not. How Come? And I never knew GTS-R's came with collapsable rear wings (first picture, the #52 GTS-R on the left) :)

    Awesome pictures, good to see that Viper heritage is being kept alive :2tu:

    That was an old pic NOT taken at Daytona

    But you can swap the front ends ;)

    Not sure what you mean about the rear wings?
