Here is a great recap and follow up of the last year's Corvette vs Porsche battle at Laguna Seca.

Nice that Corvette is the front most "team." Go get 'em.

And what is up with the 44 Porsche? With such a strong 45 car, the 44 is a joke.

Sounds like they have a lot of excuses:
Quote:
Joerg Bergmeister qualified the No. 45 Flying Lizard Porsche eighth in GT – with a time of 1:23.484 – for tomorrow's ALMS round three: the American Le Mans Series Monterey Presented by Tequila Patrón. In the No. 44, Seth Neiman qualified thirteenth at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca circuit.
Joerg commented, "It was a disappointing result. On my first quick lap, I made a mistake, and then I hit traffic, and the bad luck seemed to cascade from there. But over the last two practice sessions we've made a lot of progress towards our race setup and I'm confident we'll have a solid racecar tomorrow."

No. 45 engineer Stefan Pfeiffer added, "We are very close with setup, but we still have some things we have to find and improve. We need to focus on making a strong car that will last the six hours: to put it in context, that's more than half of a Petit Le Mans. It's especially important at a small circuit like Laguna, where we have a lot of traffic and the cars can easily go off course and then rejoin, bringing dirt and debris with them. We should have good racing weather tomorrow. It will be cooler than today, which will help the drivers."

Here's 2 incredible interviews with Dick Guldstrand and Dick Thompson from yesterday about racing at Le Mans back in the 60's.
