Bernhard and Dumas join Muscle Milk Team CytoSport

When team owner Greg Pickett was injured in testing at Mid Ohio, the team, of course, required a new driver. Based on the high performance of late of this team, Porsche stepped up with not one, but two "Factory" drivers! Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas now join the CytoSport team for the season.
The next race is Road America 20-22 August, my favorite track, and Klaus Graf will have expert help at this long and tough venue!

The Schumacher/Barrichello Incident

A quote from Rubens on the near disaster caused when Schumacher moved him over, almost into the pit wall.
"You know Michael, you talk to him and he will always feel that he is right. He has been out of the sport for three years and he is still the same guy. If he wants to go to heaven -- in the event he is going to heaven -- I don't want to go before him."
This move by the former 7 time World Champion has been discussed at length in the F1 press and by former F1 drivers. To say Schumi has been verbally attacked is an understatement.

At Spa, Stephane Ratel announced plans for a GT2 Championship in 2011, with FIA approval pending, running GT2, GT3, GT4 and GTN cars running together in an endurance format, rather than 1 hour races that GT1 is running.
GT2 cars would be allowed larger restrictors in order to insure they are faster than the other classes.
