    John and Ryan: Hopefully you can give your opinion on this question after this weekend’s racing:

    Question 1: After your experience from watching the Long Beach IMSA race in addition to your observations walking around the paddock. What is your opinion on how the 2018 Long Beach race should be conducted? Should it include all 3 major classes (P, GTLM, GTD) or do you think it should revert back to P/GTLM only?

    Question 2: Did you get to talk to regular race fans while at the track? Did any say what series was the main draw for them to buy tickets for Long Beach? Was it IndyCar, IMSA, or PWC?

    Do you guys think street circuits in dense populated cities help grow the sport to people that may not even know professional sports car racing in the US even exists or do you think most people living in the area find the shutting down of roads more of a nuisance? Is there any city you wish you could see a new street circuit at to break into a new geological market for say IMSA?

    With Jose Gutierrez not doing the street courses or Mosport, is it to do with budget, or a lack of experience on those specific tracks?

    In terms of time, where is the cutoff point for manufacturers considering DPI see no return on investment for developing a car in relation to the next regulations cycle? Is developing a car for 2019 with changes in 2021 still an option? (thinking of Audi)

    How important will it be for IMSA to hold to their DPI concept with little change for the factory/teams stakeholders going into 2021? Especially if the ACO will look at major, unexpected changes again.

    Is there any precedent for IMSA to have awarded the GTLM win to the #3? I know it’s a slippery slope, but having your race decided like it was in the hairpin doesn’t feel satisfying.
