When we hit the road for the 2009 Petit Le Mans powered by MAZDA6, we knew we were in for a special few days at the race track. With the weather reports predicting gloom and doom over the skies of Atlanta, we prepared for the worst and figured the weather would at least for some interesting racing. We weren’t disappointed in the least. Thankfully, the weather gave us a couple of days of fantastic weather with blue skies and sunshine before the heavens opened up on Saturday.
Now that we’re back home (with a few bumps, bruises and fire ant bites), we can get to work. Jack Baruth will be posting up his thoughts on the weekend in a new Avoidable Contact post that will be up soon, and Nick Salvatore is busy twittering away about the weekend. So, I guess that leaves me to produce something of value from the trip by way of these photo galleries. I’ve created several galleries from the various events throughout the weekend and inserted them all into this post. I probably have a few more photos to upload to each of the galleries throughout the day, but this should get you started.
