Thats definitely disappointing news, hopefully they will indeed be back at Sebring as the article suggests, as well as the 2019 Rolex!

This is a disappointment. They will be missed. Thankfully there will still be a stellar grid. I really hope they do enter LMP1 again.

I really doubt it, what sense does it make to skip Daytona (especially given the timing of the event plus if they would solely focus on P2) and basically forfeit your possible NAEC changes, only to reappear at the next round?

If they do decide to return to P1 a 2019 Daytona entry doesn't seem logical either but they would be back at Sebring (for the WEC race).

I highly recommend it. You can walk the entire perimeter of the infield course and then go over by the highbanks to watch the cars. Only place you can't really get close to is the backstraight and chicane. You can walk through the garages before the race and see all the cars and all the drivers at the autograph session, then walk out to the grid before the start and walk through the pits and on the track.
From the grandstands you can go up high and see the entire track, or head down to the front row and be just several feet away from the cars as they fly past at close to 200mph.

The bulletin about the roar time trials to set pit and garage assignments is interesting and unique. Also from it I gather that dpi and gtlm are still red numbers. While GTD stays green. I donít agree with that but I like that gtlm pits with dpi from this point on.

I assume you mean the "P"(rototype) and "GTLM" classes numbers are to remain red? I would agree, that they will.

Jackie Chan DC Racing's rumoured 2 cars now have rumoured driver line-ups:

Thomas Laurent - Ho-Pin Tung - David Cheng
Lance Stroll - Felix Rosenqvist - Robin Frijns - Daniel Juncadella

A stacked race lineup gets even more stacked.

Unusual line-up that one, wouldn't have called that. Tung and Cheng were probably a given, and Laurent is not unexpected. But the second car is a hell of an entry.

There's some serious cash behind the second car, wonder how Mr Stroll feels about burning his cash in two series?

How dare UA release a press release with statements! They should have phoned the journalists to get personal quotes directly from 'Nando to them! He'll never get anywhere in sportscar racing like that!

In a less sarcastic note, I can't wait to see his performance at Daytona!

Yes, Job was a formidable team to be dealt with, but sad is not what I get from it. More of a privilege in having the opportunity to see Alex and Holly orchestrate many of the feats that they achieved during their presence in 'pro' racing! Stellar 'Job', Alex and Holly! (yes pun intended).
