    Did Porsche have a reason for changing the exhaust system on the 911 RSR after the Rolex 24? Looking at old pictures the car had two straight exhaust pipes coming out the back of the car and I noticed during the Lime Rock race that it now curves back to the center.

    Was the ACO homolgation not complete before Daytona? If it was a change after the homolgation, do the other GTE manufacturers have to sign off?

    1. Any thoughts on how well Team Nederland will perform with the Dallara at Daytona? The vanilla chassis is an unknown for IMSA competition and Daytona is pretty unique.
    2. Is RLL still evaluating an LMP2 entry for IMSA?
    Couldn’t be more excited for the Rolex 24 after your international entries article this week. Thanks!

    How is TRG able to run the Vantage in GTD? Will they be able to next year? I didn’t think Aston was interested in the WeatherTech partner fee.

    Didn’t Juncos Racing take delivery of a Maserati GT4 or two a while back? What happened to their plans?

    Are GT3 teams responding to the Florida 36H initiative nearly as much as LMP2 teams are?
