    In the spirit of WEC calendar speculation; Can you forsee the possibility for a combined GT race involving GTLM, GTE Pro, GTE AM, and GTD sanctioned by both IMSA and WEC?

      You can disregard this question

    Why doesn’t IMSA and WEC count team points like they do for manufacturer points?? Best placing car scores the points for team???

    1 – Any predictions on the revised 2020 P1 regulations? Could we see manufacturers like Peugeot and Mazda step up if hybrids are no longer mandatory?
    2 – What is the state of GT convergence? Are manufacturers still pushing for it with seemingly so much more interest in the GTE platform?

    From a history stand point, will IMSA’s race be considered the “real” 12 Hours of Sebring and the WEC race just another event that happens to be 12 Hours in length?

    -Do you guys think the ACO and IMSA will try align on the P1 regulations for 2020 if hybrids aren’t required or do you see IMSA continuing with DPi with the 2021 P2 regs?

    -Do you foresee JAF going their separate way for new GT500 regulations with the shaky state of DTM? Doesn’t seem like that relationship has helped either party with no cross play to date.

    Is the Cadillac GT3 car available for customers? Given the success, I’m curious why GM hasn’t made more of an effort to get it into other GT3 based championships with privateers. Is it all about return on investment?

    How long can the ACO keep the world championship status with just one LMP1 manufacturer? Do you think the ACO will revert back to the ILMC?

    For a car that has such a strong track record internationally why is there seemingly so little U.S. customer interest in the Audi R8 LMS?

    Doesn’t back-to-back races at Sebring effectively rule out WEC teams like Rebellion and any additional Fords from competing in the IMSA race? Between availability of equipment, crew, and drivers it doesn’t seem feasible.

    (Sorry for the late submission. Feel free to answer next week, or disregard if you answer indirectly in this week’s episode.)

    I’m having trouble seeing many benefits of starting the WEC Sebring race at midnight. I can’t imagine that those start and end times will help Sebring sell more tickets, and I had the impression that poor attendance at COTA was a reason that race went away. The race will end in prime-time in Europe, which could help TV ratings there. What else am I missing?

    I do believe all of the concepts you have presented for your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts
    are very quick for novices. May just you please prolong them a bit from
    subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
