How does the MC12's engine sound compare to the C6-R?
And the MC12 does well in FIA GT. The C6.R engine sound is very distinctive: loud and throaty (Panoz is like that too). Honestly I don't remember how the MC12 sounded. I didn't take note of it. But the car is very cool looking. It will be at Road Atlanta. I hope some others show in in GT1 as well (Saleen, Aston-Martin), because it is effectively a dead class without. I've even heard rumor of Corvette considering a GT2 program.

BTW: I thought ChampCar was boring and lackluster (race and series). Despite what CCWS may say about attendance, there were fewer people there on Sunday for the ChampCar race. I know that because we had a much easier time parking as we drove around the track. I doubt I will again pay extra to see ChampCar. In fact I really missed the Speed World Challenge Touring car and GT races that usually accompany ALMS -- I'd much rather have them than the CCWS.
