Driver Insight: “Lime Rock is one of the most different tracks we race in all year. Every time a driver hops in a car they want a different challenge to overcome and Lime Rock offers a change of pace from the rest of the season. Strategy can be huge here due to the ease of going down a lap. Setup is much different than most of the tracks we are on this year as this track is relatively low speed but lots of momentum.” – Madison Snow, Driver No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3

    I just noticed that the BoP on the Mustang GT4 jot nailed for 10kg more weight, a 4mm smaller air intake restrictor, 3.5L less fuel and a 1mm smaller fueling restrictor. OUCH!!
