    Great meeting you on the weekend Ryan! You took a photo with my son Derek. I have to say that the California 8 hours was a great race! It’s too bad that there was a small crowd for the event. It’s really hard to get Bay Area fans out to the this event unfortunately. There was a large amount of advertising on the radio but I cannot help but think it was on the wrong station in the market. This was the hipster, alternative rock station. These listeners don’t even have cars. Anyway, What do you think could be done to draw more fans? Do we need a track closer to the Bay besides Sonoma which is not fan friendly like Laguna Seca. Hope for double the cars next year. Thanks!

    Any further information on teams entering the TCR class of CTSC in 2018? Aside: hoping to see a Ford Focus join the world TCR stage.

    Would the hypercars considered for LMP1 replacement be based on the production cars or more like Class One/GT500? Is Class One being considered at all in the new regs?

    Why doesn’t Aston Martin use the DB11 as their racing chassis? Is it just marketing for the Vantage?
