Rooting for Gavin/Magnusen to come in first, and Beretta/Milner in second. I'm excited to see some good racing!

WD40 was first made in 1953, named for being the Water Displacement formula, perfected on the 40th try. Does the year sound familliar?

I'm probably just embarrassing myself here, but I've never noticed the rear tires of the C6.R being this big - look at that flair! Is this a change, or just me rubbing the sleep out of my eyes and REALY looking for the first time.

Is this a change?



Guess it's just me the paint scheme makes it look wider this year. Here's 2010:

Great race so far! Running two computer and they are sooooo slow. But feeds are hanging tough. Good pit stop being shown on Speed TV.
