7/6/07 - The 2007 American Le Mans Series New England Grand Prix @ Lime Rock Park, Connecticut
Thanks to Audi Sport North America's amazing hospitality, Tim was able to get a ride around the track at Lime Rock Park in the brand new Audi R8 on qualifying day for the 2007 ALMS race. Although it doesn't look like they are going very fast, the car is actually going over 100 mph at some points...in the rain!
*Earlier in the day, Tim also got to take a couple laps around the track in the official pace car: a BMW M5. They went quite a bit faster in that car (about 140 mph) because it was dry at the time.
