why do we spell them "b-i-m-m-e-r-s" but pronounce it like beamers, it should be spelled b-e-a-m-e-r-s lol

ETA is 6:30 PM on Speed, following the NationWide race ... Looks like this will be rescheduled to a later time or date ...

We had Two (2) 2010 Camaro's running in the 24hr race. We we in the top 3 and lead a big part of the time for the first 16hrs of the race and had lapped the GT field by 3 laps. Robin Liddel, Andrew Davis and Jan Magnussen were the drivers during the 24hr.
At around hour 16 we lost 5 gear. We went behind the wall, removed the gearbox, rebuilt it and reinstall.....in about 45 min. Back on the track 28 laps down and managed to fight their way back to a 4 place finish. The Drives and Crew did a excellent job.

OK, now you got my eyes open this morning. I would like to see more of the cause and affect report with that rebuild on the gearbox, please?

Was it stock? - Why 5th Gear? - Significance?


Thanks.

DONT BOTHER, the "Camping world" crappy Nascar event is over rideing it.
http://www.speedtv.com/
I sent a nasty email to speed..there is plenty of other nascar stuff on all the time, re-broadcast the truck junk at midnight or something.
Heak they arent even REAL trucks.
Hats off to the Continental tire racers and SMP for working so hard at a sport that gets such little coverage and respect from mainstream media.
These are the REAL racers in my opinion, Left/right/stop/go/ pass at 126 mph IN A TURN!! Thanks for some great racing guys!
Good luck in the series!!
