Over the Easter Weekend of April 16-17, 2022 here in the Western US, the FANATEC GT World Challenge Series had one of their America Races at Sonoma Raceway in the Bay Area just north of San Fransisco in California. They ran both the GT3 and GT4 Spec Cars along with some of the Touring Cars that compete both here and abroad in Europe. Both of my Sons, one from Sacramento, Ca and the other from here in Nevada from down in Las Vegas, were able to head over and catch some of the action for the first round on Saturday the 16th. As usual, these series do not draw a huge amount of spectators, but they do get the diehard true Sports Car and GT Fans that want a chance to see up close these fantastic race machines on an iconic road circuit.
Now with great Internet feeds, we are able to stream many different races and I was able to watch a good chunk of the GT3 and GT4 Heats on a You-Tube Channel, while my Sons sent me Live Updates and pics, which was really cool.
