Not only does it look like a blast, but looking at past results, it looks like it was not a very highly contested event. Sure, the overall winner was fast, but the pace seemed to drop off pretty quickly. Heck, I might WIN something in some category for once!

Where do you see that there's driving a Porsche as part of the race? It says run-bike-run-bike-run.

The entire day is Porsche racing, the du is in the evening. Hence, you get to *watch* Porsche all day, then run and bike.

Sure, but being on the East Coast, I feel obliged to tout local tracks. I've been to (and driven at) the Glen a bunch of times, biking on it will be awesome. I bet it's gonna be weird being on such wide pavement though, I'm used to little teeny country roads.
