The audio quality for endurance-radio this year is pretty bad. Hopefully they will fix it.

Congrats to Sonny!

Was the R8 a "cold tires are cold" problem or did someone help him off?

Mark got in about an hour ago in P3. Promptly set fast lap at a 2:03.545, possibly lap record. He's backed off to 2:06's and still managed to pass the leader. No other E3 car in this stint is even close to his lap times so he's opening up a gap while in cruise mode. I can step away from the computer and go get some work done now..

P9 overall now. Kitty (E3) would be P2 in E1 and E0. Ahead of every factory team, including Mazda.

SCCA would give you a 200# trophy for that win margin.

Last lap was 29:45 and now 5 laps down in E3. I assume had to do some repairs in the pits?

edit: Last lap was a 2:06 now, 3 seconds quicker than E3 leader. Putting in some work.

That would be ~8 minutes to make up in 2.5 hours?
