I just like the look of time attack cars–the more wings, the better. Looking forward to the updates.

I'm psyched for this!

I thought Amir might be ready to debut the NSX in unlimited, and Ryan Passey would be out with the improved HyperMiata, but I guess neither are quite ready... Both must be close to turning laps though.

I want to see how Eric Sutton does. I have no clue what he's done to that car but it scoots... Looks a bit soft for COTA perhaps?

And I thought Jonathan Wheeler won E class last year? Shouldn't that disqualify him from E class this year? 

GT-X is a new class this year, right? Should be cool to get a comparison between the street car tuned in a guy's garage and a factory GT3 or P2 car. It might help motivate people at the pointy end of unlimited to figure out how to go a little faster.

GT-X is essentially what used to be Pro/Comp.  Factory built race cars, whether production based (e.g. Porsche GT3 Cup) or not.  Getting more popular, though emphasis is still on "cars with Vins".

One of our local guys Thomas Smith is competing; the guy is hugely talented and does it all himself.

Will there be a live stream?  Has been in the past, but I can't find any info for this year.

Good morning from a chilly COTA. How's this for a Max Effort entry? 67 Camaro. 1100 hp. 2900 lb. 3900 pounds of downforce. Owned by Mike Dusold, driven by Jason Hart, who has Le Mans, Baja, and dirt sprint car experience.
