      Unlikely the Acura will be ready. But Team Penske WILL be there in a vanilla Oreca Gibson. mostly to re-hone endurance skills..But..could win…

      Currently they have to call a plumber. They clogged the garbage disposal in the sink trying to get rid of the whole thing.

    Would IMSA be willing to open up the maximum number of cars allowed to race (57) at Daytona next year since we’re expecting additional international interest?

    There was a piece published by another outlet last week outlining the “aero dilemma” in PWC. Do you think that GT cars, GT3 more specifically with its additional driver aids, have gotten too caught up on aero development that the cars are almost too easy to drive for pro drivers and in some cases decrease passing opportunities too much?

      GT3/4 cars consistently have the best racing in whatever series they run.
      So I don’t think they are too easy..at least not in a detrimental way.

      GTE/GTLM isn’t as good because for whatever reason those cars are harder to BOP to the same closeness.

      In my opinion.
