Hello,

We all know race cars get dirty during a race. But I was impressed on how filthy the C6-Rs got during the Petit Le Mans race. If this is after 10 hours, I can't imaging after 24 in Le Mans.
Now here is a weathering challenge

I think its a super idea John , but Izzy might come up we might have to go along and do it also........or some other revenge tactic....I think he can pull it off nicely...I'd like to see it.

Ya know....you're prolly right. Knowing Izzy, he could easily talk/bully us into playing along with him.
