Road America - Raceday

Sunday August 16, 2009

9:20 am - Checkered flag on the morning warmup and thankfully, no red flags. the No. 45 was fifth fastest in the session with a 2:09.533. P1 No. 92 BMW (2:08.22), P2 No. 90 BMW, P3 No. 87, P4 No. 4; P5 No. 45. We'll be back with you for recon laps, about 1:15 CT. ** Thanks Jen

9:10 am - The No. 44 pits for driver change to Darren Law. The No. 45 pits for driver change to Joerg Bergmeister.

9:07 am - Patrick Long is currently P4 in the session. The BMWs, as expected, are P1 and P2. The No. 62 Risi Ferrari is P3. The BMWs are running larger restrictors and should show significant speed advantage in this type of circuit with its long straights which require power and speed. The Corvettes are running P5 and 6, although I expect they are not showing all they have right now.

8:55 am - Green flag. Cars are on course. Reminder that we are broadcasting our team radio this morning and during the race. To listen, click on the "Follow the Race" tab on our home page. The race will be broadcast live on SpeedTV.

8:53 am - Good morning from Road America. We are just minutes away from the start of morning warmup. This will be our last run on track before this afternoon's race. Patrick Long is in the No. 45 and Seth Neiman in the No. 44. It's a bit cooler today, with low cloudcover, a strong breeze and the possible thunderstorms predicted for this afternoon.
