    Tom (Motorrad), Larry (Jester), and I headed over to Laguna Seca to check out the ALMS races this weekend. I think we all had a great time. Here are the pictures.

    The first picture is in the paddock. The last four are from the grandstands in turn 4.

    Some Mazda's headed for turn 4. These guys ran something like 4 laps under green in a 20 lap race. For some reason they kept running into eachother.

    Then the Le Mans series was released onto the track. The LMP cars were incredibly fast. They were running laptimes about 6-7 seconds faster than the guys from MotoGP.

    See those three circles on the door trailing edge, next to the flag? Some sort of green flashing LED lights during the race...dunno what they mean.
