My main interest is in GT2 class, hoping that AF Corse Ferrari of Vilander/Bruni/Melo/Salo will have great race. I just hope Melo doesn't crash the car, he have destroyed two cars in ALMS this season. Other car i'll be keeping my eye on is Prospeed Porsche of Forsten/Palttala/Henzler/Horion.

Zacchia destroyed the Saleen that was on pole in the dying seconds of the warm-up.

I wasn't sure of Steve Zacchia from the # 33 Speedy Racing – Team Sebah Lola B08/80 Judd. Larbre put in such a great effort.

I've changed my GT1 pick to the # 6 Chevrolet Corvette C6.R of Phoenix Carsport with drivers Mike Hezemans, Marcel Fässler, Jean-Denis Deletraz, Fabrizio Gollin and Michelin tires. The same drivers and car won last year's endurance race.

EDIT: Never mind I found it.
