It was a toasty day in Atlanta with surprises o’plenty. In the Speed World Challenge Touring race, Bimmerworld finishing 1-2-3 overall. Realtime Racing followed just behind.
The Speed World Challenge GT race showed us a McLaren SLR getting a warm welcome at turn 10 and another KPAX win for Volvo.
In GT2, the Privateers ruled the day with the Robertson Ford GT and LG’s rebuilt Riley C6 stealing the first 2 grid spots. Left in their wake, the factory Pratt & Miller C6.R’s, RLR M3 GTR’s and the gaggle of Porsche RSR’s.
Ratcheting up the speed, Peugeot Sport didn’t waste any time ripping off their fast laps, uncorking their diesel 908’s to dominate the prototype field. Audi Sport’s pair of R15’s were left to contend with Simon Pagenaud in his downforce laden Acura ARX02, the first of the petrols.
