This was my 5th time at this event, the season finale for the Corvette Racing team in the American Le Mans Series.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay for the actual race!  {8-(

 

Thursday, October 2

Departing Decatur, AL

 

Arrival in the Corvette Corral at Road Atlanta.
 

After checking in, I walked down the hill and to the far end of the pit straight to the Corvette team paddock.
   

By the time I reached the pits my knees were killing me! I realized that I would NOT be able to do it again, and the 3 day event would require many repeats. So-o-o, decision made, I made my way back up to the Corvette Corral.

Pits and straight as seen from half way up the hill.

Back at the Corral, I paid my respects to the staff, left word for Connie and Bobbie Tow, who were hosting me in their home again, and headed for home, thoroughly bummed out!

 

Back home by early evening - final stats.
     

Saturday, October 4

So I watched the race from my couch over a few beers.
