    Friday Morning Update from Milan

    The weather is here, and I wish you were beautiful, or something to that effect - We had a pretty good rain storm this morning but it's blown through for the time being and trailers are being parked by the score while the track crew grooms the strip in anticipation of the 3pm test & tune session and the first round of quals at 7pm.

    One of the special events going on this weekend is the Ford Racing Media Invitational, which pits a wide cross-section of the motoring press against each other in a bracket race format. Representing Race Pages this time around will be the esteemed Jason Reiss...



    Here's the full lineup for the Media Invitational:

    Christopher Ihara - The Corral - GT500KR
    Jason Reiss - Race Pages - GT500
    Shaun Bailey - Road & Track - Shelby GT
    Don Roy - Mustang Enthusiasts -Mustang GT
    Doug Glad - CarCraft.com - GT500
    Ben Wojdyla - Jalopnik - Mustang GT
    Mark Houlahan - Mustangs & Fords - Mustang GT
    Steve Turner - 5.0 Mustangs & Super Fords - Factory Five Coupe
    Sam Abuelsamid - Autoblog.com - GT500
    Evan Smith - Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords - GT500
    Dave Freiburger - carjunkietv.com - Factory Five Roadster

    Considering that they just started test and tune an hour ago, I'm not sure what you want pictures or a play-by-play of. People parking trailers?
