    Default Nissan Motorsports Z and GTR event at Mid Ohio, Sep 16 - 17 2011

    It's a little late to announce the event, but some of us Ohioans (from the Cleveland Z Club and the Columbus Z Club) were at the event. It was the Rolex Grand-Am championship weekend.

    Nissan Motorsports was there as a major manufacturer. They had one big tent (the "Chalet") on 'Championship row' and a big setup at the manufacturers midway, showing off the 370Z and the new LEAF, as well as Paul Newman's Nissan IMSA GTP car and the new PS3 GT video game.The winner of last year's video challenge was there, as a driver. Continental Tire was there showing off tire technology and their lovely models.

    There was an opportunity to do a few parade laps (the pace car driver didn't understand everyone behind him was capable of going over 25 MPH on the tighter turns) but people were definitely pointing and waving at the two Classic Z Cars as they went by. There were paddock tours, where we met a few drivers and the chief instructor for Mid Ohio School. Continental tire was there with 6 big trucks full of tires, and demonstrated how they mount & balance racing tires.

    We also some great catered food both days.

    I believe Speed TVs roving camera guy got some video of the Z cars on the driveway from the infield to the track for parade laps, and he seemed to focus on a certain green classic and it's driver!

    The Rolex Gran Am championship will re-run Sunday, Sep. 25 on SpeedVision.
