Just in case Mom doesn’t understand, you might want to set the DVR to record the American Le Mans Series race being televised on Sunday (ESPN2 at 1:00pm on Comcast). Watch and see if BMW Team RLL can repeat with another 1-2 finish like they did in Long Beach in the last race. The new Z4 GTE should be even better suited for the rolling twisties at Laguna Seca than it was at Long Beach. Watching this with Mom may even get her excited to go with you to Oktoberfest and try her hand at tossing the bimmer around the track during one of the many driving events being offered at Laguna Seca (you are going, right?).
