Hey I'm in Charleston SC. As of right now We're leaving here 4ish thursday evening to meet with another 7 in GA around 6. Then meet with my friend in Jacksonville with his NSX that night. THen friday heading down to Daytona. Can you work with that time line? The more the merrier.
You are showing your age... I had to dig out an old IMSA yearbook to see that they added the bus stop in July 75 (earlier for the bikes). I didn't think anyone else remembered the old Carreras or Corvettes hitting the east banking at full speed in the darkness. It's really getting wimpy now that the whole track is lit for the 24 hours.
On the other hand they had a great field this year. The Judd powered prototypes sounded great. The winning team said they backed off from the sprint race redline of 10,800 all the way down to 10,400 for the 24 hours
Hmmm... a compact 300lb, 10,000rpm 4liter V10 with a six speed sequential gearbox. Honda are you listening?
I'm pretty sure it was a couple years later than that. That was they year Danny O. backed the 00 Interscope 935 into the wall coming onto the main straight. Of course, he did that sort of thing a lot. Hmmm, I think it was the first year for the jungle-screamer rotory powered Mazda prototypes.
