so I  just asked Darren Cox  of NISMO if he would be open to a meet&greet and a tour of the car some time that weekend of the COTA race for us and he said he absolutely would and loved the idea.   so as the time gets closer to event I will sort all of that out and follow with them. right now the focus is to see this car get on track at Le Mans and confirm it will compete the rest of the season after that.

but yeah "if" everything works out im working on like a Q&A session and an up close and personal look at the LMP1 car as part of our meet maybe the night before the race or something


I also asked about what trickle down tech the R36 could gain from this car specifically an off the wall possibility of a FWD bias to the road car and he said the reason this racecar was FWD just to take advantage of an opportunity with the aerodynamic regulations.

Nice!  :clap:

sounds like we are getting quit a few folks in Charlotte pinging the forum now.  Maybe it is time to try an informal uptown GT-R meet again

^ I am starting to make a comeback.
Will be posting lots of updates from OLoA this year. Getting my typing thumbs back in shape.

Ugh... I saw the map for this year's event.  Insanity.  It is nice of them to switch it up, but there is a lot more ground to cover this year between events.  Reminds me that I'm very impressed by the engineering that creates theo super-high HP cars that compete in TX2K and similar events, but they are pretty much utterly useless in the real world.  IMO, not one of them would make it through One Lap let alone podium.

Saw a full display of these at Target the other day.  I mean, it is cool they made some GT-R toys, but they look like ass compared to some of the better GT-R diecast you can already get.

In Topic: jeremy-clarkson "LEAVING" top gear, & no top gear "EVER"

one article said BBC is trying to regroup and pull something together for a 2016 Top Gear season.  Really wondering how that will play out.  Richard and James stated they don't want to continue the show without Jeremy, and all their contracts were do to expire.  Will either actually come back?  I doubt Top Gear would be as successful with a new set of hosts.
