Hello fellow motorsport enthusiasts!

I apologize if this introduction gets a bit “long winded”.

My brother and I grew up watching motor racing on TV and visiting the local 1/4 and 1/2 mile dirt tracks on weekends. Being in the USA, most TV viewing was NASCAR (when it truly was stock car racing), Indy Car (USAC) before competing interests split it apart, and Race of Champions (an early spec car series involving drivers from all forms of International Motorsports. On occasion we got a rare treat when a Formula 1 race was shown on ABC’s Wide World of Sports. Can-Am and Trans-Am racing was also big at the time but neither series got much TV exposure. My introduction to Sports Car racing was an evening at the local theatre in 1971 watching the movie Le Mans. Finally, whenever the movie Grand Prix was shown on late night TV we just had to stay up to watch it.

Now to the present. I’m looking forward to watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend on the Velocity channel. I’m curious to see how LMP1 ends up since the Porsche 919’s are no longer participating. Considering last years late race events, I suppose fate will favor Toyota this year.

Thanks to all for allowing me to participate in the discussions.
