CTMP - Mobil1 Grand Prix

Just sharing my weekend. Went to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park to watch the Mobil1 Grand Prix IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Honestly it was the first racing experience I've gone to, and it was totally more real and exciting than my living room

Here are some photos and some videos at the end.

Nice pics and videos. Love IMSA with so many manufacturers and classes racing on historic circuits that we don't get to see often enough.

As impressive as the bellowing V-8's sound, there's nothing like the rip of the Porsches.

I watched it on NBCSN that sometimes replays motorsports events in case anyone's interested.

Edit: Online repeat here:

Yeah, it was quite the sight to see! There were in total 4 different classes of cars there, all of which were amazing in their own right.

Those Porsches were definitely the most badass. The sound was amazing. They placed 1 & 3 in the GTLM class.

I will need to watch 2018 from your link, but yeah waiting til they upload the 2019 one somewhere to rewatch as well.

I was more of a fan of IMSA/ALMS when they ran all four classes of cars that also competed at Le Mans. It was especially wild when LMP675 would outrace LMP900 cars on shorter tracks like Laguna Seca.
