I took my son to the Monaco F1 race and then to Le Mans. We were fortunate enough to watch the F1 race from a yacht by the chicane after the tunnel. It doesn't get much better than this.
David Murry Wins Pole, Leads in No. 73 American Harvest/DeMan Motorsport Porsche Boxster; Rick DeMan Unhurt In Race Crash, Saturday, May 14, in GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) Street Tuner (ST) class competition at Virginia International Raceway (VIR).

On May 13-14 David Murry will drive the American Harvest Porsche Boxster at VIR in the Grand Am Continental Tire race. Murry said, "I can't tell you how excited I was when John Frank asked me to be part of of this program. The car is being prepared by DeMan Motorsports and my co-driver will be Rick DeMan. We will actually be testing the car at our David Murry Track Days event at VIR, April 20-21. This is a truly first class effort and I can't wait to get back into a Porsche".
Next race for David is the 12 Hours of Sebring, Saturday, March 19. Watch live all week during practice, qualifying, and the race on www.espn3.com
Mike Levitas and TPC Racing bring tremendous technical expertise and professionalism to our paddock. We're delighted they're with us.
Next event: April 20-21
Winter ALMS testing at Sebring for the 12 hour. Our Ford GT's are fitted with Michelin tires for 2011. We ran some good lap times at the test and have a large list of items that we still need to test. I feel like we will be in the running this year. Anthony Lazzaro will be my co-driver for the season and Rob Bell will again join us for the longer races. Boris Said will be co-driving with the Robertsons. We have also entered both cars at Le Mans and we have been accepted in the #40 car and the #04 car is first alternate. That is great since I can't tell you when the first alternate didn't make the race. The whole team is very excited about this year.
I ran Daytona this year with Dennis Spencers team in a Mazda GT. The guys at Team Spencer worked super hard to get the car prepared in a short time. The car handled well but we had a few electrical gremlins that kept us from showing our potential. We were down a few ponies due to that. Thanks to Dennis and Rich Grupp for making it happen with such a great family of a team. We finished 18th.
