    I'm with my client Speedvision, which is apparantly a cable channel with nothing but racing, all the time, round and round, 24/7, cars, boats, snowmobiles, etc...

    And we're editing this race together they shot on Saturday, November 3rd. The Daytona Grand Am. I guess it's basically open to teams with alot of money, but who aren't necessarily professional. Lots of different classes of cars, fuck if I know the terms for them, but we're talking badass Formula types, and alot of Porche 911's including one with those patented red, white and black stripes we've all come to instantly recognize from a mile away.

    Apparantly the car is sponsered by Van Halen, according to the producer, but I'm not sure if it's Eddie's project, Mike's, or the band as a whole.

    Whoever was driving was pretty shitty, cause I saw it spin out once, and get lapped several times.

    My question is, is it a tax write off like the producer said, or does Van Halen really have that much disposable cash to burn on an entire team?

    Anyway, thought I'd report my findings like a good linker. Check out http://www.speedvision.com for a schedule.

    Hmmm.. Mikey seems to be the one into racing, just from recent tidbits, but I wouldn't be surprised if the band was involved considering the paint job.

    Very cool, though - any pictures, diddle? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I'll try and figure out how to do a screen grab so I can post it. But the whole car was red, with the stripes and a little logo on the back fenders. I did see some other decals that might have been other sponsers. Let me work on a picture.

    cool, although i don't really see a reason for them to sponsor a race team, especially one that sucks. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
    it would be cool to see a pic though. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Got a car number or driver name? I poked around here a little bit - Grand American Road Racing Association - looked at the results from Saturday and also some photos - didn't see anything, but there's probably pictures I haven't checked and I don't have time to do it right now!

    It was probably Eddie driving. We all know what happened when he was driving a golf cart!!!
