    Can you provide any detail on who may be interested in running customer 911 RSRs and Ford GTs next year?

    Besides Audi and Honda, what TCR brands can we expect to see in 2018?

    Near the end of the WeatherTech race, IMSA went to full course yellow because a car ran out of fuel at the bottom of the pit entry hill. That yellow seemed to last for 15 minutes, but the only ‘work’ that needed done was to push the car back a few feet through a nearby hole in the wall.

    A 15 minute caution feels unnecessary for such a minor incident. Are there any changes IMSA could make to their caution procedures to eliminate this type of caution?
