    WRT was cheating!! full stop too much inlet manifold pressure!!! means some air by passed the restrictors so much more engine power!! Penalty was given for “unsporty behaviour” so one wonders when else they where cheating

    With respect to time penalties in the race, I wonder if SRO would implement a similar idea of slow zones for certain corners a la the FIA World Endurance Championship.

    Question:
    What are your thought’s about Class One regs for DTM and Super GT?
    Should we look at these regs as a premium touring cars, silhouette race car, a premier sportscar, or
    a combination of the three?
    How does these regs fit the sportscar racing landscape?
    Your opinion, positve or negative.

    Why did every “full course yellow” follow up with a safety car during the Spa 24? I thought they did that only for major accidents that took longer to clean up. This procedure seem to artificially kept the cars close to each other throughout the race. If not for this, the Walkenhorst and ROWE BMW’s would have been at least 2 laps ahead of everybody else by the end.
