    Hi guys, great podcast as always. I had a few questions. Firstly, It was mentioned on the site that IMSA was planning an encore race at the end of the season. What is the likelihood of TCR cars being allowed?

    Secondly, What would the GT1 class be like these days if it still existed?

    Finally, have you ever considered having a fan meet up at during a WEC weekend?

    There has been some speculation that the City of Toronto and promoters Green-Savoree may not renew their contract for the annual July race on the streets of Exhibition Place, and that Mosport/CTMP could take over that date on the IndyCar schedule by 2018 or 2019. If this did occur, could it have an impact on dates at Mosport for IMSA and PWC? The most realistic suggestion I’ve read is that they could in effect exchange dates, with PWC on a July Mosport IndyCar weekend, while IMSA would then move to the May weekend formerly occupied by PWC.

    Do you think Shank will stick with GTD in 2018 or move up to Prototype and run Acura/Honda DPis with Penske? Like AXR and WTR with Cadillac for example.
