The Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) will be at Road America in a few days, so thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the PWC at Detroit Belle Isle last month. Hope you like the photos.
You have probably noticed a change in how the blog looks. Been trying out new WordPress themes recently with the goal of finding a way to better present the photos.
