    So, I spent a bit more time in the Porsche and I think I finally have a grasp of how to drag the Porsche above the mountain. Unsurprisingly, I'm slow, currently turning laps somewhere in the 2:13-2:14 range. And one little mistake and the car is in the wall, which is not really reassuring.

    Anyway, I guess I'll expand my earlier question: Anyone interested in ending up in one of the lower splits in the Merc or Porsche for the Saturday race?

    Cant say for sure yet but I think I may be able to get out of work that weekend. If so would be interested in BMW preferably or Merc as an alternate.

    I'm changing my primary to the Ferrari. I love the Porsche, I really do, but after going over the mountain a bunch of times, and seeing the kind of wheeling you needed to do with that car to get competitive times, I just can't see getting that car through a 12 hour race. There is just no room for error.

    Can you make it for 4 hours? I likely can't join until around 7:00 central.

    Oh, I have something for you from Daytona :)

    Nate - can you move me and Bedo to the Ferrari? I'll check with Reid and see if he is driving.

    @Anson Bennette @Deb @Duke @Fromthenavy @Sam Roselaar @Bedo @reid and anyone else planning to jump on board at the last minute...

    Please don't forget to fill in your Availability ASAP.

    @Noodleguitar Added a .csv file to the File Browser for the Audi R8 GT3.
    Full service pit stop is 1:08.1.
    Been hitting the pit-in line with 0.2L left in the tank and chugging down pit road. Gonna have to do a little lifting on that last lap... :p

    This is about the worst thing that could possibly happen during the race... Don't do this...

    Or just use a bit more fuel, then you won't be going fast enough in the pits to overshoot the pit stop :)

    What was the tank size for the Audi again? 120 L?
