    Good stuff! Finally got to my desktop to watch it... Can't help but feel the anticipation and suspense building as we approach this first race of the year building. Cheers Sven for getting the low down with Warner, hopefully the format they have in mind is a step in the right direction, we will see Sunday. Plan to run downstairs when I get up tomorrow morning and see who did what in the Qualis.
