    Very Goodyear photos.
    I do not like the livery.

    Like it. N24 remains probably the last prestigious Sportscar race that a Ferrari has not won. I thought I read that Rinaldi and Wochenspiegel are the same entity?

    Wochenspiegel hires Rinaldi Racing. Like they did last year with their Porsche GT3 with Manthey Racing.
    AT Racing, Formula Racing, Vista Jet etc do with AF Corse and Scuderia Corsa with Kessel.
    Some lease their cars, some buy their own.

    yes a pity, but I understand the situation. You can not win if you are not German.
    Maybe it is for this reason the race lost variety of cars and brands the last years.

    Sadly I won't be there. I've been fortunate enough to go three times in the past five years and been able to tag along with SCG every time. It's an absolutely wonderland of a place and experience. Thankfully, there are live Youtube streams.

    Good luck to that Ferrari. It's going to need it.

    At Pitwalk later this evening.
    Ferrari (with a GT-am driver) was very quick but for the race no match for the huge squad of Mercedes', Audi and BMW's GT3s with only Pro-drivers.

    Not to mention the durability of those cars.

    Side note: I'm hoping Bentley does well this year.

    What a result! A privately backed team putting it´s car on pole on such an event is mind-blowing! Congratulations Jim & crew and all fingers crossed for the race.
