PCM Corvette itching for action.

Pacific Coast Motorsports heads to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the third round of the 2005 American Le Mans Series this weekend, eager to get back to
action and hoping to maintain a perfect finishing record in the GT1 class.
The 2004 Toyota Atlantic Champions have belied their sports car 'rookie' status with the privateer #5 Menards-Yokohama Corvette successfully scoring back-to-back top-ten finishes at Sebring and Road Atlanta.
Sunday's race, hosted on the challenging 2.25-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, is the second 2-hour 45-minute 'endurance sprint' of the year following last month's Road Atlanta dash and the season-opening 12 Hours of Sebring marathon.
Quickly adapting to the demands of sports car racing PCM held its own in March with Alex Figge and Ryan Dalziel partnered by Canada's David Empringham at Sebring to finish 6th in the GT1 category and 10th overall.
Last month's Grand Prix of Atlanta further demonstrated the team's dedication in extracting maximum performance from the C5-R package. Despite being up against the might of the all new factory-backed Corvette C6-R's, Dalziel caught the headlines topping the GT1 timesheets in Saturday practice.
While the factory cars ultimately set the pace on race day, Figge and Dalziel's solid effort saw the #5 Menards-Yokohama Corvette maintain a 100% finishing record with 9th overall and 5th in GT1 class at the chequered flag - and both are eager to attack the twists and turns of Mid-Ohio this weekend.
"Mid-Ohio's a great track, it definitely ranks as one of America's leading permanent road courses," sad Figge. "I don't know many drivers who don't enjoy racing there and I'm looking forward to getting out in the Corvette.
"I'm optimistic we're going to have a good weekend there. We've shown we can be fast but I think the key to a successful weekend will be maintaining a consistent level throughout practice, qualifying and the race."
"I enjoy racing at Mid-Ohio as it's a great venue and a suitably challenging circuit with all its twists and turns!" added Dalziel. "I last raced here in 2003 in Toyota Atlantics and came away with a podium finish.
"It feels like ages since the last race at Road Atlanta so I'm pretty excited to be getting back behind the wheel, not least as we've been working hard on tire gains and set-up changes which we're confident will improve our performances and keep our momentum going."
Meanwhile, the generous five week break between last month's Road Atlanta event and this weekend's Mid-Ohio race has given PCM the opportunity to take stock of their fledgling sports car campaign while planning for the future both on and off track.
The calendar gap has subsequently seen Ironclad added to the PCM sponsor portfolio with this weekend's event the first opportunity for the team to sport the Ironclad logo alongside principle team sponsor Menards on the car, driver and team uniforms, transporter and pit equipment.
Back on track the team squeezed in a short test last Wednesday, 11th May, at the Infineon Raceway in their native California where Figge and Dalziel were both on hand to put the Corvette C5-R through its paces at the Sonoma circuit - home to Round 5 of the ALMS in mid-July.
"When we raced at Road Atlanta five weeks ago it was the first time out with the new aero configuration on the C5-R and it really changed the balance of the car," commented PCM team director Tyler Tadevic. "As a result we were left playing catch-up while we tried to find a workable set-up for the race.
"Arriving at Mid-Ohio we have a great opportunity to be more competitive thanks to a productive test at Infineon Raceway last week. We all came away happy with the test results and the performance of our Yokohama's.
"We're heading into practice with a good balance on the car, having successfully worked on the aero configuration, as well as a new tire compound to add to our overall competitiveness," he declared.
Round 3 of the 2005 American Le Mans Series at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course gets underway at Noon EST, Sunday 22nd May, with live network television coverage courtesy of CBS from 1pm-3pm EST.

BAWAHAHAHAHA
Do you REALLY need to use SOCK PUPPETS to answer yourself, Jim Adam! (12100 Bedford Wds Dr.#209,Raleigh, NC 27614 (919) 488-3415).
Are you really THAT pathetic that you not only resort to STEALING posts to populate your pathetic "board", but now you have to make up ALIASES to answer posts you make on a.a.c?

You ladies are just really pathetic. Worse than my ex-wife.
Granted, I thought that "Chuck" might have a point after seeing the header information but I checked and saw what the real deal to this is. As I wrote in a previous post about the forum software packages for BB Forums, I have had experience with some (just not with php bb) and am somewhat familar with the mirroring capability
If you look at the header information Chuck provided, it says the "User-Agent" is newsSync (JLA FORUMS)
I did a google search and Newssync is the software that php bb forums uses for USENET mirroring. It is similar to what is integrated with VB and others. When a post originates at a forum and is uploaded to the NNTP server and AAC, this User-Agent along with server IP will appear. I registered at the JLA FORUMS and posted a response to this thread from there and as I suspect, the header information will be the same. I also did a search for other AAC posts that appear to originate at the JLA Forums and lo and behold here are the headers

Try it for yourself and you should be able to confirm the same thing.

Hey, Padilla, you don't like the bitching, why not stop doing it. You make a bigger fool of yourself than anyone else could the way you pop in to make sure and defend JLA at any mention of the cheap tactics. What are you , the JLA police? Get lost, loser. You showed up when they did, and you don't have much powder to go blowing other people off here.

Actually, I got a simpler, up-close-and-personal, bitch about what JLA is doing. When I clicked the link and visited the site, JLA left me a persistent cookie (tagged 'machine-id'). (Not just a simple session cookie to help with navigation of his website). That cookie expired at the end of 2023 and linked my IP address with a JA internal index (visitor or customer) identifier number. That data is now in his database. Nothing wrong here--just sleazy IMHO.
I object to this sort of behavior. I trash outrageously persistent cockies as soon as convenient and block their replacement. I try to avoid web sites that "need" to store any piece of my personal information for the next 18 years. If JLA is collecting your phone number, that documents a business relationship and makes it legal for him (and disclosed business partners) to place junk phone calls to you.
I'm not going to waste the time visiting JLA again but someone might visit the site and see what his Privacy disclosure page says -- if he is operating afield from what he has disclosed then he is in violation of the law.

You guys are really a piece of work. Isn't this group about Corvettes and not about whining which you seem to be doing entirely too much of?
If all you have time to do with your life is to come up with lame gripes such as the one that Paul H has spewed, then really you should consider ending it all. Remember down the road always works better than across the street.
Also, if you are going to put something out there, at least put it in context. Yes, I also observed a cookie from the JLA FORUMS on my system that expires in 2023. But you must understand, this is a function of the forum software and many websites do the same thing as well...some of which most of you have on your systems as well.
Take a look for yourself. If you are running Internet Explorer, just click "Tools" at the top of your browser page and the select "Internet Options" Midway on that window, you will see a button that says "Settings" Click that and then select "View Files" A window will pop up. Scroll or look to the right at the top of that window and you should see a heading that says "Expires" If you click "Expires" twice, it will arrange the files in this folder by the expiration date in decending order. Here is an example of the cookies and expiration dates I found on this computer which will be similar to what you will discover unless you are using a cookie blocking program.

Again, if you have a problem with the JLA site, why the heck do you visit the site in the 1st place.
Now please, quit your "bitching" and keep this immature BS out of this group.

Physician, heal thyself. How many times are you going to make this point? Or perhaps, in your special case, bitching about bitching is somehow defensible, and even praiseworthy?
