Thanks all for the votes of confidence on the new GT. I truly hope you all are on the selection committee.

Right now, just like you, I'm still in the "dreaming of a new GT" phase.

The white one at Daytona blew me away. In the pictures it was great, up close and personal it was spectacular. If my number comes up 'snake eyes' … bright white is my current favorite. Terrible problem to have, making a color decision.

Jeff that is awesome! I have 18000 miles on my car but if it was stock it would have more lol Big Hp problems lol I did put 5500 miles on it in two weeks tho driving it around the country and it was a blast!
Glad you are enjoying driving it, great way to see what's out there in this really big country of ours. Truly a Grand Touring car.

Daytona, Free Practice 2: Ford GT before two Ferrari 488 GTE !

January 28, 2016

After a wet track while ago at the first meeting, the rain came to set in during free practice 2 benefiting GTLM. The best time of the session was signed by Sebastien Bourdais in 1: 56,024, driving the Ford GT # 66 Chip Ganassi Racing. After the best time in Free Practice 1, the Ferrari 488 GTE # 62 Risi Competizione now points to second place with the second fastest time in 1: 56,420 Giancarlo Fisichella. James Calado takes over the third fastest in 1: 56,492 at the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GTE SMP Racing # 72 he shared with Gianmaria Bruni, Viktor Shaytar and Andrea Bertolini. The two Corvette C7.R # 4 and # 3 Corvette Racing follow in fourth and fifth place.

Gentlemen,

I'm sure you will all have a great time at Daytona, I'll be watching as much as I can (My daughter's birthday is Saturday and as much as I love these cars, I can't miss her birthday), and rooting for a big finish for Ford. Hoping to hear some good stories from the group.

Great seeing the cars run, the Ford hospitality was a nice touch and seeing everyone again was loads of fun too

I made it to New Orleans last night (about 650 miles) and went to dinner with a good friend/biz associate at Dragos for their charbroiled oysters and now only have about 350 miles and I'll be home

I'm sure you'd agree that it would look far more 'bitchen' if it were red with a white stripe. Maybe next year. ;-))
