This race was the North American debut for the 488 Challenge. It can’t match the scream of the outgoing 458 (of which there were many) but it looks amazing.
This is only my second year attending “The 25” but it is quickly becoming one of my favorite weekends of the year. This is true endurance racing; nobody is willing to throw in the towel. I watched shock changes, axle swaps, full engine pulls, and the Ryno Racing crew putting an entire right rear corner back on the car to salvage a second place overall, and class winning, finish. Congrats to the Flying Lizard crew for their overall win.
Another year, another dramatic finish to the Pirelli World Challenge season. I watched the final laps from The Corkscrew. I thought the championship was won. I feel for Pat Long but Alvaro Parente was fast all season and I always love seeing the K-Pax guys do well.
