    Thankfully when we were at the Roar we were able to use one of the garage spaces and qualified high enough to secure one for the race this week as well. It's nice having a garage to work in since it eliminates the time required to setup and take down the trailer awning, the only downside is that you have less room to work on the car. This past week we finished up all the final prep for the car, including almost an entire day of fuel drop tests to match our required BoP for the weekend for in-car tank volume and flow rate. I always had heard teams complaining about how long it takes to get their setups perfect and now I finally understand why. So many factors are at play to ensure results are repeatable: fuel level in fuel rig, length of hose, height of re-fueler, distance of car from fuel rig and of course restrictor size. Today we officially released our livery for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, a very Canadian buffalo plaid. At first it started off as a joke between our team manager (Steve Bortolotti) and the Pfaff creative director (Laurance Yap) but our sponsors got on board with it and we may even be securing a sponsorship from Smoke's Poutinerie because of it.

    Just some pictures from preparing for the Roar at the start of the month. The car has been under development for a while in Europe, but the North American tracks are presenting a new challenge for Porsche so we are all learning together at this point. It has been a big help having Lars Kern as one of our drivers since he has done a lot of the development for the new car in Europe. All pictures were taken by Jordan Lenssen (https://www.instagram.com/lenssenphoto/)

    This is a sweeeet venue. Good work on this Steve. Makes a guy want to scheme to show up and race without the wife knowing. Oh, will you look at who is looking over my shoulder, "Hi Pat, how are you?", "No, not me honey, I was talking about Bill"

    Some big news today for us Canucks north of the border; all IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Challenge races will be broadcast live on the Discovery Velocity channel as well as TSN will be airing tape-delayed "cutdown" recaps from events. Of course that is on top of the live streaming that has always been available at https://imsatv.imsa.com/.

    80 had a great line today. His bash bar is completely ludicrous however...

    This is an urgent call for corner workers for Saturday January 19th in Beausejour. 10:00am - 4:00pm Bring warm clothes, especially boots. Since you are protected by a barrier you can stand much closer to the action than we do in the summer. This makes for a great view of the racing. Please Contact @ScottMcD for more info.

    Hey Ken! As a technical writer for a Publications Department, I can appreciate the amount of work that goes into one of these newsletters. I haven't seen any previous issues, but I must say that the current issue is extremely well done. Do you think we should also mention that the track resurfacing donations can be made electronically on the WSCC homepage? The PayPal or credit card option is nice and even offers monthly payments. That works better for people like me who would rather spread out the payments over several months, rather than a lump sum payment. Again, kudos to you and all the contributors that made the newsletter happen!
