I want to thank everyone that had a part in making this event happen. I know the crew from Texas had a great time and we look forward to coming back next year with more drivers that didn't make it this year. You guys definitely have a great facility and the race was run very efficiently and organized. Special thanks to Doug and John for putting up with us racers, lol. It was surreal to be out racing our GT cars while hearing the sound of Nascars running laps at Homestead Raceway just behind us. I look forward to coming back next year.

Just arrived here in Atlanta. 9 more hours to go. Well, a spur gear went away (due to bad gear mesh) and later the receiver battery went away that prevented me from continue to race in the final. Although I did not get to race the entire final but I still had plenty of driving time throughout the entire event over the weekend. I would like to thank Doug for being an awesome Race Director and organizer for this fantastic international 1/8 GT competition at its best. Thank you John for ensuring all the racers have the best track condition available. Thank you Joaquin for the Saturday's pizza party and the parts support! It was very nice to see most of my friends from Texas and New York again, although I did missed all my friends from Utah as well. I would like to say a big Thank You for all the racers around the world who continuously support the growth of this awesome class. I am very humble to be a part of this great event. Thank you Sweep Racing Tires for sponsoring this event as well. Until next time.........

What a great event special thanks to Doug and Desoto racing for putting on a great show. GT racing has come such a long way and as more events like this prove its here to stay. It was great racing with my old friends from New York and meeting new friends from Texas and my fellow international GT racers. It was a honor to be a part of the GT Grand Prix. The final between Poalos Serpent and Scotty's Leno prototype X-ray was epic and Maxy stayed in the mix till the end. The quality of racing could not be better with the pits playing a pivotal roll. And Chris ironman bumping from the last spot to the final very impressive. Congrats to Leno for all his work on the Xray car it was great to see that hard work pays off. Can't wait till next year.

Would be nice to see a final ranking including the brand of car driven.

Also a picture of the winning XRAY would be of interest.

Anybody here who can supply the information.

Dear fellow drivers

Me and my son, Õcaro, would like to thank all the people involved with the 1/8 GT Pan-american Grand Prix. It was a great race, we had the opportunity to meet new friends and meet again with the old ones, and we also had a lot of fun. We hope that next year there is a huge event like this, and we will do our best to attend it.

Special thanks to Paolo Morganti, Doug, Ricardo Jord„o, Joaquin DeSoto, DeSoto Jr, Maxy Velazco and Rino.

PLEASE VISIT MY RACING CLUB PAGE IN BRAZIL AND SEE SOME PICS:

Private message Rino Lino he built both XRAY prototypes there are a few pics around but he put a lot of work in on the platform so It wouldn't be fair to post pics without his permission. Hope Xray takes notice.
