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.

I agree. Beretta was easily holding him off and then let him by and gave him 5-6 car lengths. It was a safe play, but to the trained eye must have looked obvious. I kept waiting for the announcers to say that the car was having trouble and slowing down, but I guess it was all part of the plan. Sneaky sneaky...

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

In honor of Road America this weekend, I made a GT2 C6.R replica on Forza Motorsports 2. Sorry for the quality, I had to take a picture of my tv since I don't know how to transfer pics for the X-Box 360 to the computer.

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.
