    Even the old and obsolete Vette can win with favorable BoP…

      Yeah, the Corvette Prototype sandbagged the entire weekend. I have it on good authority that Ford has been warning IMSA about this exact scenario. They can just turn it up whenever they want and disappear into the distance…

        Oh like at the 24 hours of Daytona? Oh wait that’s right the Vette was getting passed on the oval like it had a parachute strapped to the back of the car.

        Please don’t mention sandbagging and then Ford lol.

      That is one of the points of BoP, keeping costs down by not forcing everyone to design a new car every year. See the Aston in the WEC.

    Can you further analyze the GTLM race at Sebring? What do you think was it that made everything work out right for the Corvette to win. What went wrong for Ford, BMW, Ferrari, and Porsche?

      Ford mostly. Ford led the majority. What went wrong for them? And Ferrari kept coming back to 3rd. Read: VILANDER: Sebring Debrief. That has the details. BMW has been struggling for a long time now. And Porsche was forging to #1 and then blew a tire, ran over the hose in pitlane, scrubbed the tires in pitlane. Drive thru. Game over.

      Corvette just turned up the boost and pulled away after sandbagging all weekend long.

    With the formula e race cancelled in the beginning of July, would Buemi and Heidfeld be able to join Jani at the Glen?

    These comments sum up the problem with BoP. Whoever wins is apparently now cheating.

    Anyone that watched the race will n all the cars were pretty well balanced, the Fords and Ferraris had the pace in the day but suffered as the temperatures went down. #911 may have well won if it didn’t have the puncture. Garcia’s outstanding drive was what won the race.

    If I was a Ford fan I would a) not mention other teams sandbagging and b) wonder why they ran 3 cars at Sebring on the exact same strategy, kind of defeats the point?

    Why is Ricky Taylor not returning to Le Mans with Corvette Racing this year?

    • JamieR

      Because Marcel Fassler is now available for one of the cars at Le Mans.

    What happened to Lucas Luhr at BMW?
