There's been a lot of different rumors about GT5, but I've heard this year in the fall or winter. There was a date leaked out saying December 28th or there abouts, but that was never confirmed.

The announcers thought he went wide into the marbles and lost traction out of the turn. Probably not the case though.

When the #45 Flying Lizard Porsche was running low on fuel and slowed down its lap pace, you could see that Johnny O was also doing the same.

They definitely didn't want to go out and win, then the sanctioning body penalize them with smaller restrictors or weight
Both cars were. The program did not want to come out and put 2 cars on the podium or have a car win it's first event out. Watch it live and see how easy it was for the BMW to pass the number 4 car. And JO was easily cruising around keeping pace with the Flying Lizard Porsche.

Sorry to say it was never a down pour. I never had to cover up the camera gear while shooting.

RTGordon I felt like an idiot watching that timing and scoring page update every 30 seconds, but I had to do it.

Awesome start to what is really just a testing session for next year. I'm betting they get a victory this year.

P.S. I missed my guess on their competition, but I called their finishing spots right.
