Too funny!

John Doe is actually Gerardo (BoBo as we call him) Bonilla. He's a fellow autocrosser from Martin Sports Car Club that has moved up through the ranks to finally get a big time ride. We're his biggest fans and I think there will be a bunch of us going to watch him race at Sebring.

He's an incredible driver and teacher too. He still gets a chance to come out to an MSCC event and offer his services as a top notch instructor (for free of course) every now and then, although the scheduling requirements of this opportunity will probably mean the end of that. Here is his more about him.

***EDIT*** Go! Go! BoBo! The Martin Mafia is "representin"!

Were you between turns 3 & 7?



That looks like turn 3. I spent most of the day on the outside of turn 3. I wish I would have known you were going... I would hAve called your cell.

This was my first Sebring race as well as first ALMS race. The BP car ended up having a fuel cell leak that they weren't able to fix. After they didn't get it repaired in time (only had like an hour after the start) they were DQed. They'll try again at St. Pete in 2 weeks. What sucks was that Gerardo has thousands of laps at Sebring. I think he could have given Mazda a good showing.

Next time....

It was my first ALMS too. For some reason I didn't think you where going. Post your pictures. Chuck, are you going to the St Pete ALMS on April 5? I'm planning on it... I'm going to change the title to "2008 America Le Mans Series (ALMS)" thread.  ;D

It was kind of a last minute decision to go. And I didn't take a camera. Both of the guys I went with were photography junkies and they had their cameras. If they post any I'll post the link. I won't even be on the mainland of Florida by the time the race starts. Hopefully it will be televised and I can Tivo it. If you get a chance in St Pete to go by the BP garage and see Gerardo tel him Chuck said GO GO BO BO!
