Good news (http://www.americanlemans.com/news/Article.aspx?ID=3921). Rahal-Letterman is running an M3 in the GT2 class. Glad to have a taste of BMW Motorsport in North America again!

I certainly hope it'll be running at Sebring, as I'll be there to witness. And, if it is, I certainly hope it kicks Porsche's tail! Just like the M3 GTR did a few years back. Well, now we have a real production M3 with a V8. What will Porsche cry about this time?

Here's a link to some pictures of the M3 prototype that will serve as the basis for the actual Rahal-Letterman car.

Now to set up a visit to the Rahal facility like we used to do with PTG, of course Hilliard Ohio is a little bit further than Winchester VA.

OK, I was so excited to hear the news that I missed the fact that they won't run until next year... : (

Something to look forward to for next year though....

I will be at the BMW Performance Center on Monday.
Rahal and Auberlin will be there too. :)

Is this to do a Speed Test Drive of the new M3? I heard that Tommy Kendall will be there also. Any chance of posting some pictures?

You know I'll post pictures if I can take them.
I wish I had a video camera.

Just don't tell anyone else. ;)
