i think the only problem with the flying lizard car is seth Neiman is driving no offence to him but compared to teams like Pruett/Rojas/Rahal/Hand and Dixon/Montoya/Franchitti/McMurray he is not the strongest driver.

Cannot wait for this race now. There is a live streaming link here: http://www.justin.tv/johnathangregorio#/w/810517808

Hopefully BMW-powered cars win.

Pitch black now in Florida. Cool

This race never fails to amaze me, the Rolex 24 has to be the most action packed 24 hour race in the world. So much overtaking, accidents and contact.

The Flying Lizard Porsche looked dominant...until moments later it got hit on a restart. The Ganassi cars still have a great shot at this race, because other contending cars have also had their problems.

Agreed, the Rotary engine in the Mazda RX-8 sounds sensational. It sounds like a de-tuned Formula One engine, probably because it revs until 9000 rpm - it has a wonderful high-pitched scream.

One thing that annoyed me a little bit, a DP brought loads of mud onto the track at the Bus Stop when it crashed off. Cars afterwards slide off and got punctures. Yet a caution wasn't called. I don't want a car losing the race over getting a puncture over debris.

Great to hear from Jimmie Johnson. Cool

What a legend Montoya is, he's like a tiger waiting to pounce. He easily un-lapped himself on the restart, avoided the oil in the best way possible and is still overtaking cars. You know when Montoya is behind the wheel, he'll drive the heck out of the car.

The 02 looks really quick right now, they should keep Montoya in there for a while. He is gaining the positions. Still cannot believe how close the cars are, this is a 24 hour race and we have nose-to-tail battles amongst the top five cars!

I loved the BMW feature on Speed comparing the M3 and the new 1M. The Safety Car is awesome, hope we have more cautions so I can see it.

I think I can see some debris, time to fire up the BMW 1M Safety Car...

Caution for fog? Fantastic reason.

So its a BMW 1-2-3. BMW 1M Coupe Safety Car and both BMW Ganassi's.

Brundle and Blundell in the United Autosports car are doing a fine job, they were matching the leaders laptimes. Despite the fact that they have never driven these types of cars before the Daytona month.

Britcar still holds the record for safety car out while foggy though, over 5 hours iirc.

17 cautions is damn impressive, the record for the Rolex 24 is 26. affraid

Glad that the 02 BMW is in the lead, I got a bit worried when Autosport reported that the Action Express Porsche was in the lead.

Brundle is superb, he wasn't driven in anger since 2003, yet he's driving a new car that he hasn't driven before at the leaders race pace. Not sure the BMW Ganassi's can be beaten, but you never know...

Somebody else who is mighty impressive is Jimmie Johnson. He's a NASCAR driver, he doesn't have to drive in the Grand-Am Series. He does it because he wants to become a better road course racer, he has the desire to learn in a more low-profile atmosphere.
