I followed the ALMS since late 1990's (for the obvious reasons)...

BMW TEAM PTG have been good for me (fan wise)... and I am a huge fan of the Aston Martins....

Yeah I am lucky to get to see both an IRL race and the ALMS race all in one weekend. And the best part is, as I have relatives who live in Tampa....no hotel fees!
