SPEED TOURING CAR - FULL FIELDS, FULL OF DIFFERENT CARS
Over 50 cars are set to compete in the Speed Touring Car Championship this weekend, with 10 makes represented (Acura, Audi, BMW, Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, Nissan and Volkswagen). At Sebring, an astonishing six different makes (Acura, BMW, Volkswagen, Lexus, Mazda and Honda) made it into the top eight.

DESPITE PARITY, RULES CHANGES MADE AFTER ROUND ONE
At Sebring, Speed Touring Car had six manufacturers in the top eight. Speed GT had six manufacturers in the top six. Despite that fact, the Speed GT Audi S4 Competition gained 75 lbs and lost 1.3psig of turbo boost, and the Acura NSX SC gained 150 lbs. Will the adjustments be enough to slow down Michael Galati and Peter Cunningham, who have dominated Speed GT the last two seasons? We'll find out this weekend.
