It's a slow weekend overall, but the the quality is high. the Petit Le Mans will be raced at Road Atlanta on Saturday morning, but will need to be seen online in its entirety. This six hour short endurance race will have every team and racecar in attendance and class winners will get an automatic invite to the next 24 Hours of Le Mans. There's some V8 Supercars action from Philip Island, which is definitely a must-see. Last but not least, the new season of Chasing Classic Cars is now here on HD Theater (now called Velocity). Before the premier two episodes of Season 4, they will play a marathon of all previous episodes on Sunday afternoon. This works out great because I've gone through another DVR from my cable company so when the new one arrives there will be nothing on it. Silver lining says what? Enjoy the weekend.
