    Seeing the inequality between not only DPi vs LMP2 but also Oreca P2 vs Every other P2 at Daytona raises a lot of questions from Fans and Drivers alike. How the Balancing should work here? Reducing the engine power of the DPi or enhancng the power of the Gibson P2s?

    I am a 20yr straight attendee of the Rolex 24 and I couldn’t be more excited for the 2018 season. I was recently at the Roar and again Cadillac dominated the time charts with the next closest competitor being the Acura ARX-05. It looks like the Acura runs a much more extreme downforce set up than the Cadillacs. Could this be the difference in lap times at Daytona with majority of the track run on the banking?

    Are there “new eyeballs from channel-flipping who convert to full-blown fans” figures in media-research data? If so, could you tell us the numbers?

    Because I’ve heard this argument since the 1980’s. And I haven’t spoken to one person yet who became a Motorsports fan from channel-flipping. I’ve met fans who came into it with their family, with their friends. Fam/friends take young kids to the track. Every fan I have spoken to got their fandom from track visits. Those engines and the all-encompassing feel of a race track just can’t be advertised on TV. Why can’t I find a single channel-flipper-to-fan in a car club or at a track?

    Is it because the advertisers use “channel-flipper” as a Trojan Horse to convince the honcho’s in race-series HQ’s to make them accept 20-minute long cuts to “full replays” or 30/30 ad/race timings, for What They Really Want? WTRW is for channel flippers to see the same ads channel-after-channel-after-channel, because that convinces them the advertised product is “viral” and “trending”. I don’t see channel-flippers as so freakn valuable as all you media types think they are. Obviously, I’m wrong, please show me the figures, Cheers!

    Time for streaming! Want “new eyeballs”? Give them race ticket prices and track days they can easily afford and justify to the banker of the house. Place ads for the streaming site on popular TV shows like the Today Show, Fox and Friends, SNL, and in particular, extreme-visual ads in movie theatres. Take a ride on Universal Studios’ Fast-N-Furious ride to get a taste of what cinemas could do for race advertising.
