Wow, a 18 year old German guy with only one functional eye is heading the Xray campaign in Miami.

Cudos.

Can only imagine how hard it is with one eye, since your 3D vision basically goes down the drain.

I can't drive with 4 eyes anymore

Looking at the feeds, I'd say another 10-20 mins, I think, they are running catch up rounds from yesterday in the lunch break on right now.

I would so love to stay up and watch the last qual for Hara and Rob etc, but they are the last rounds of the day, so probally another 2+ hours away, and it's already 3am here now...

it really doesn't bother me, it's just my wife brings it up now and then(like every other week) she took her vacation on the perfect weekend so tomorrow and saturday I can be at the track all days, I'm afraid i will have some pit duties though!

Hara/Hot Bodies/Mugen update:

Barry was talking during an intermission on liverc and said that Hara wanted to run the 1/8 onroad worlds. Since he runs ZAC tires, and the Japan Mugen team runs ZAC tires the logical choice was to run a Mugen. Hot Bodies bought the car so that is why he doesn't have any Mugen stickers on his shirt or car.
