Day 1 Update from Sebring
 Date: March 15, 2007 20:05
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV News
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


Night practice for the ALMS cars should be taking place at the moment but a torrential downpour that ended about a half hour ago seems to have put the brakes on it for now. We're typing this update from a parking lot situated just outside Sebring's front straight. Unfortunately we didn't arrive in time for the World Challenge Touring car qualifying session earlier today, but we were able to walk around the paddock for a little while before the skies let loose in a BIG way. To avoid spoiling it for those who are waiting to see the televised coverage of the Speed World Challenge race, the qualifying results are posted "invisibly" below. To read them, just click and drag your mouse over the following "blank" area and you should be able to see them.

The World Challenge Touring Car race takes place tomorrow AM at 11:05 so we'll be up bright and early to hopefully see some TSXs and/or RSXs on the podium. We can't wait to see the Acura ALMS cars in action too, and hopefully the night practice session will begin soon. In the mean time, enjoy a few pics from today.
