    Here's some of the pictures from the Petit Le Mans last weekend. Some of the photos are from Friday's practice session and walking through the paddock. The later photos are from raceday on Saturday. It was my first time going to one of these races and I was absolutely enamored by it. The things these cars can do is unreal. Needless to say, I'm absolutely stoked for Forza 4!!!

    This video is shot on the back straight away coming into turns 10A&B. It's easily the fastest part of the track, so listen to these babies hum!



    One of the things that I found really amazing is that the LMP1 prototype cars, Audi's R18 and the Peugot's are completely silent. They are the fastest cars on the track and they don't make a sound except for the woooosssshhhhh of the air as they go by. If you watch the video closely and listen, you can somewhat pick them out.
