The car is the star

I watched the Grand Am sportscars from the Fontana track in California on Sunday on the Speed Channel. With only two top class sportscars in a thin field the commentators were struggling for interest - but they told us nothing about the cars - the very thing that got me interested in racing in the first place. You can get better information from the organiser's website.
You would not have learned that for example the Crawford sportscar is built in North Carolina by a Kiwi; the Mosler comes from Florida and the Ultima from the UK. Lastly the Picchio which I'd never heard of comes from Italy.
