Latest News & Results
The engine sound is just the belching exhaust on deceleration when he’s feathering the throttle turning into the corner. The other car is already painted up, that tested at Road America, so that might be the one headed to France.
Haha! Very interesting concept!
Starting every race day with an hour and a half drive from Milwaukee, or two and a half from Chicago, followed by having to drive all that way home each evening, sounds utterly hellish.
LOL!!! “A Cayman based GTE spec racer Maybe?”
That is funny!!
It would be SO disappointing if Risi isn’t at the Rolex with the new car!!
Dagys, any word if Risi would or could run the 458 chassis??
I can’t tell the different between this and the current 458.
But its a looker. Can’t wait to see it at Daytona and hope AF Corse gets 2 for Pro and keeps the 458 in Am.
Thank you Lanky!!! Great video!!
I can’t tell if the sound of the engine coming into the corner is the rev limiter or if they are on the rumble stripe already…. Anyone else tell?
Also, I wonder if that is a different chassis than we all saw at France. Isn’t the FIA BOP test coming up shortly??
Not a fan of Laguna, yes it looks nice and the corkscrew impressive, I find most races processional, they can only hold 5 major events a year, are severly noise restricted and local board looking for a new track promoter.

Not sure why hotel rooms matters, they can drive less than an hour to Milwaukee, or Chicago, both much bigger cities than Austin. Race tracks do not have to be independent cities, just improve infrastructure contingent deal(as they did with building of COTA) with less stringent requirements. Business is about basic math. Interest in Watkins Glen or Road America would be huge from outside.
