That's not the car Wilson will be driving up the Mountain, that's the #60 Shank Ligier-HPD that's being used for the full season of TUSC and has been re-liveried again. The ARX-04 is still in Patron colours and looks totally different.

you need more.

before each car was a compromise between track and dirt
now they're full-on track-attack!

Um...it's more dangerous now.
Who said anything about danger? I said it was BORING.

you need more(balls).

No, before, the track was completely dirt/gravel. They just slowly paved it bit by bit until there was nothing fun left. And anyone that thinks you need bigger balls to run grip style on pavement clearly has no idea.

Sad about the motorcyclist. :(

As for the track, a large part of me will miss the off-road aspect of the track, but another part of me is excited to see full blown race cars go up the mountain, Swiss hillclimb style. Should be pretty cool to see.

Fastest car this year (but not of all time) was all electric! Kinda crazy watching a car go so fast with just wind noise (and a safety siren). :)
