Dome of my best race action photos are from there.


Miller staff and the people of SLC couldn't have been nicer or friendlier. Hotel prices are reasonable and some of the best back drops you could ask for.

I love the place and yes I've been to laquna.
To each his own. Give me Road America, Road Atlanta, or Laguna. Won't hurt my feelings if I never see Miller again.

I hate speed tv

Finally got done with all my weekend jobs around the house yesterday. Grabbed a drink and went to watch WSBK at Portimao which my DVR SHOULD have recorded.

Nothing recorded. WTF?

No, because in Speed TV's infinite wisdom- the races will be shown starting at noon Tuesday.

Of course when I scanned Speed's schedule for yesterday, there were so many more important shows that needed to be broadcast like at 6pm

6:00PM ET Dumbest Stuff on Wheels Motoring Morons, Cruising Cretins & Buseys

Then 3 HOURS of reporting on what has already happened.


7:00PM ET SPEED Center Motor Racing News

8:00PM ET NASCAR Victory Lane New Hampshire

9:00PM ET Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain


Guess unless it has Budweiser on the hood and it only makes left turns for 99.99% of the season, it gets shuffled back into the infomercial filler schedule.

I HATE SPEEDTV

And to make it even worse, Speed couldn't care less if you hate them. There is apparently an infinite supply of bubbas for them to cater to.

GP1 is reporting that the Panigale will not carry the extra 6 kilos of weight next year that this year's Ducs have had to.

I guess Ducati's bleating has finally paid off...

I was under the impression the extra weight was because they won the championship last year?

pitstops for 2013

Possible pitstops in WSBK in 2013. In an attempt to stop red flags for rain
Could be very interesting! I like the idea

I have a feeling that team is going to get the best out of Leon. Next year is going to be better than this year.

Not yet. They're still looking to run 1800cc displacement!
