    the oreca’s best time was in much more traffic than Cadillac, and if you look at best time with theoretical best lap with combined sector times two cars went under the 1:37.7.

    Happy new year everyone. With the Autosport Internatonal show starting tomorrow (Thursday) for the industry and then opening to the public on Saturday and Sunday. do you think these kinds of events as relevant as they used to be, even 10 years ago?

    -Is the removal of the front grill and smaller dive planes BoP/top speed related for Mazda at Daytona?

    -Do you guys think IMSA will modify the TCR platform at all to be a proper ST replacement? Using a platform limited to front wheel drive and 2 liter turbos seems very restrictive for potential cars in the class compared to the diversity we’ve had in that class previously.

    Good day guys.

    Question 1: Isn’t strange to see more and more GT3 manufacturers skipping the Blancpain GT Series? Cadillac first and now Honda and Lexus too.

    Question 2: Can the new FIAT-Chrysler scandal harm Ferrari’s effort in FIA WEC and the heavy factory backed AF Corse squad?

    Hi John. This will be my first Rolex 24 this year. What are your recommended spots for photos for the general public? (No press/photo pass) I understand most of the fencing is 6 feet tall and I will not have a step ladder (flying in). Any other photo tips for the 24? Thanks!
