    Can you please speculate your initial thoughts on what additions or deletions there will be to the 12 Hours of Sebring entry list compared to the Daytona 24 field?

    -With the huge interest in McLaren in the Conti series, do you think we’ll finally see them pay the IMSA partner fee for GTD?

    -The news of the Nissan DPI bodywork redo for next year was unexpected. Is Nissan finally stepping up to help ESM out with the branding? Was there a hint that it will be modeled after the GT-R?

    -Any updates on possible DPI prospects for next year besides Honda or guesses who Joest could team up with?

    John, any ST teams share their thoughts on the TCR platform as a replacement? I saw the RS3 LMS at Daytona and had mixed feelings myself.

    How can you ignore Corvette’s fantastic pit stops. It didn’t make the difference in terms of a win, however if they continue to have those performances on pit lane and are a little more competetitive on track they would seem unstoppable.

      Good point. They were tremendous all race long and basically kept Corvette in the mix. Hard to include everything when recapping a 24 hour race in 15 minutes but that was definitely a worthy storyline and could be one to watch the rest of the year.

      Thanks for listening!
