With practice and qualifying done for the day most of the activity moved to the paddock area next to the garages where the less affluent race entries were camped out with some working on their cars as friends and family cooked supper over large charcoal grills and hibachis.
In the garage area the spaces reserved for the JWA Gulf Porsche team were very quiet with lights off and all three 917s in their respective spaces. Their crews were at the team hotel on the beach eating a late supper or already in their rooms trying to get much needed rest for race day. The local paper seemed to hint that some of the team members were visiting local nightclubs in an effort to scare up some female companionship.
