Curious. What I have right now is 42 Drops from Daytona potentially are: 2 Jackie Chan DC's, 2 Grasser Lambos, 1 United Ligier, 1 Manthay Porsche, 1 Risi GTD, 1 AF Corse/Dalla Lana Ferrari.

Anybody think a couple from this list will show up?

Probably 3. Or maybe it includes the possible 4th NSX in GTD?

It says 17 protos + 9 GTLMs, leaving 19 GTDs.

another email from SIR now mentions 44 cars, still 17 prototypes so 1 GTD entry has dropped, thinking either Grasser or the unconfirmed 4th NSX.

Based on history, I think it'll show up at three or four races. It will start two of them, but retire within five laps on one of them, and retire from the other after about 30-45 minutes.

The Transformers franchise should have gotten behind Performance Tech or JDC who both have a stellar track records instead of the Dawson clowns.

I'm not into Transformers but I'm sure it potentially would have brought a whole new group of fans into the scene. On that subject: why isn't the Need For Speed franchise involved (or did I miss that one)?

Assuming you mean Fast n Furious? I don't think there's much cross over between street racing and actual motorsports. I don't know about IMSA, but the FIA is huge on road safety, so I don't think they'd look too kindly on a franchise that glorifies illegal street racing on their cars.

Need for Speed, the game franchise, sponsored a BMW Z4 before.

The Fast and Furious franchise really isn't about street racing. Not anymore. They're just car-heavy action flicks.

And are we supposed to care about Mr Todt's vanity platform?

Sadly car accidents on the roads is a fact of modern life and regardless of anyone's concern, is not going to go away any time soon. The more cars on the road each day, the more accidents will happen.

I think most people don't "glorify" any films or video games with a street racing theme, it's just mindless entertainment.
