Mazda / Lola Coupe. That is the former B-K Motorsports car and a second is on the way from Lola.

Cool shots JT, nice to see the coupe actually running as I saw it up for sale near the end of last season. How's the grid looking so far this year, fairly sparse?

There used to be Canon gear here but it disappeared.

Actually, the test was about the same car count. Sebring will be good (2 R15 Audis and 2 Pugeots). After that, it's going to be tight. I hear there are a few announcements coming soon... but I'd guess we're going to preaching quality not quantity. :)

I was hoping to catch Sebring but work is busier than expected so I'll miss the R15 debut sadly. Agreed on Quality, we've got very few events here in Canada this year so I'm going to have to make the best of it though the return of the Toronto Indy should make for a great weekend.

Any news on GM and the Vette's? Last I heard they were pulled indefinitely due to scrutiny over GM being in such a poor financial state that funding racing efforts was not a wise idea.

Just noticed as well, Acura's running two models this year? Looks like the Lowe's team is using last years chassis but the XM and Patron teams are running what looks like a new front diffuser.

Awesome photos, I love them all.
But my favourite one is the 4th. The BMW and his angel eyes have got something special.

The XM and Patron teams moved up to the P1 category this year.

Makes sense then given the loss of Audi and Porsche.

The Patron car in the pic is the P1 car, the Lowes is the P2.

Running rear-sized tires for the fronts. Would be interesting to see how they do vs the P1 giants.


a couple of cameras + eyes that are starting to open + boatloads of patience
