I love how they reused the headlights so you can still guess it's a Corvette :-) I've always enjoyed watching the Corvettes in GT1 and GT2 (Or GT1 and GT if you prefer) race

I guess some Corvette purists don't like that it's a mid-engine mount and all. But hey, isn't the idea behind prototype racing to try new designs?

Absolutely :-) In an add for the 914, Porsche stated "One thing we learned from racing is where to put the engine."

One recent design trend that I hope does not catch on is the giant "stabilizer" some mfrs are using on their cars. [link]
It certainly must be functional but I think it ruins the lines of the race car. What are your thoughts on this?

Yeah, I have a bunch of pics of the Hondas and the Mazdas with their dorsal fins, I suspect that their primary purpose is to give the sponsors more advertizing space. I can't imagine that they would add more lateral stabilization than the old CanAm type wing uprights, but then I'm not an expert on aerodynamics.

Differences between American and European racing have always interested me... They do seem to have their own individual flavour but neither worse than the other. There are subtle differences which I cant quite put my finger on...and the obvious ones like your general lack of pit buildings...:)

I must say I enjoy listening to the announcers who call the European events. I enjoy their accents and commentary. :blahblah: I'm not sure what you mean about a lack of pit buildings stateside. Everywhere I've been there are garages for race teams. Although many race teams simply set up tents next to their haulers and perform their preparations. It's good for the fans that way . . .

Well, just based on US tracks I've seen (I have been to Laguna Seca, but that was when I was very young. And doesn't Road Atlanta have no pit building?), I think what I meant was that they do not seem as important as in European racing. You seem to have 'the wall' from which the pit crew jump over for pit stops? Completely different from over here...

Must say though, it allows street circuits in the US to be easily created, most others would need space for a new, and expensive building...

I want that car.
How many horses does it have under the bonnet?
