    I’d like to know when Greg Gill is: 1. Going to listen to the vast MAJORITY 90%+ of Fans and FINALLY get rid of the HATED SPRINT-X! 2. Going to listen to all of the Fans, Teams, Drivers, and everybody else that has complained about the HORRIBLE Officiating that along with SPRINT-X have given the series nothing but NEGATIVE press at a time when the series had reached it’s highest point in its history!

      It is an issue.

      100% agree. This guy needs to go back to publishing magazines, and get off Stephan Rattelle’s lap. Sprintx is a terrible idea. I really don’t care how many amateur pay drivers PWC can take entry fees from. Trust me, no fans are lining up to applaud James Sofronas or Tim Pappas on their purchased podiums, or to congratulate Harrata on his triumphant wins in a single car class. If I wanted to see amateur racing I’d go to the local circle track. The concept blows.

    Ask Double Stint: In the Lamborghini Trofeo series, how Austin Versteeg, *driving alone* be in the ProAm class? He’s either a Pro, which should put him in the Pro Class, or an Am, which should have him in the Am class.

    How on Earth can a lone driver be in the ProAm class??

      When driving as an Am, he ties one hand behind back.

    What are the implications of another exclusive tire contract in the top class of IMSA affecting the potential merger of P1/DPI?

    There are lots of news about additional IMSA series prototype entries in 2018. Is there anything rumored that could see additions to the GT classes?

    With all of the new machinery and increased level of competition within IMSA now, what do the full-time budgets for DPi/LMP2, GTLM, and GTD programs look like?

    If Absolute Racing don’t return to PWC next year, are Bentley still expected to be back in some capacity?

    Also, I just want to say hopefully PWC decide to have GT3 race at St. Pete next year.

      Looks like they will not bring the GT3. Cost for the teams is too much with all the walls. GT4 is 100%.
