He’s crewing for Rahal-Letterman at Laguna Seca. Speedhunters has been doing a lot of nice glossy coverage of the Rahal-Letterman ALMS BMW lately, but since Hatch Life is kind of like the Rota of blogs all you get are phone pix taken from Jason’s Facebook lol. Catch the race on Speed at 2:30 Sunday.

Casualties

The Big Three aren’t the only ones being affected by the economic and auto industry slow down, other companies are taking proactive steps to ensure their future, unlike the Big Three who just spend money like Whitney Houston in a crack house and then beg for tax payers to bail them out over and over again. Here’s the latest rundown of what I’ve managed to piece together;

Honda: Dropped their entire F1 program and have cancelled the new NSX

Audi: Withdrawn from both American and European Le Mans series

Mazda: American Le Mans program dropped

Porsche: American Le Mans program dropped

Subaru: WRC program dropped

Suzuki: WRC program dropped

Aston Martin: Unspecified cutbacks and so far will only commit to the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Tough times indeed
