The Superfans of Super Sebring

The Twelve Hours of Sebring ended several days ago, and as I sit at home with a hot cup of coffee, I’m still utterly exhausted yet on such a high from the weekend. That’s not because the KBru Comm clients had good results (spoiler alert: we didn’t), and it’s not because we had amazing weather…

Roundtable: Finding the Balance Between Censorship and Common Sense Part I
