Ah, didn't think of that. It was a multimatic branded hauler, looked like they were offloading tools and carts, but no car-identifying item that i could see.

The only downside of Lapierre in the ESM is that it probably means DragonSpeed won't be returning. Hedman has said he's not been that interested as well.

I imagine they will be more focused on LMP1 in wec for 2018

Since they've rebuilt the stands at Daytona all testing has been closed to the public. Hopefully that changes at some point but I'm not going to hold my breath. They will however sell you a track tour for about $20 that gets you in the stands for about 10 minutes and in the infield where they keep you as far away from the track and garages as they possibly can.

They should do a prologue type thing the wec does. I know they have the roar though.

Good point brought up in MWM. Olivier Pla is in the ESM Nissan in DPI. So what about Ford? Maybe they will just run 2 cars at Daytona in 2018.

Or maybe Pla will be out at Ford after Bahrain? I don't think he has been that great in the Ford if you ask me.

I'm more surprised to see Lapierre in a ligier, that basically is the oreca point man. Or maybe was.
Has he been dropped by them too? surely chances to see him again in a toyota are really low, considering that they need to free a seat for alonso at le mans.

2 car Ford effort would not be surprising. Ford won D24 last year.

Lexus and 3GT continuing for 2018. Will be interesting to see who moves over to drive and where the money comes from for the season. Doesn't seem like people will line up to drive for PG.

How does the overall spectating experience at Daytona compare with other international endurance races? I'm in the area on holiday but due to go home the week before the race. With the bumper entry etc would it be worth staying on?

With the grandstands you get high views of the whole track. Plus you get the space where you can sit anywhere you want. Thankfully Daytona speedway was built to hold the 200,000 fans for the 500 so for the 24 it is something to take advantage of. Plus with the new renovations you get to sit very high now and they have great facilities too. It has gotten to the point that I like being in the infield for everything prior to the green flag of the 24, but for the race itself. The grandstands right at turn 1 and the exit to the oval is the place to be for as much of the race as possible. The lighting is good so you can watch the race at night with no problem as well.

Disappointed not to have them for Daytona, but this makes it sound like they may be leaning towards a P1 campaign to me.

Yeah. they've never really committed to US racing and sounds like they were always maybe, possibly, we're thinking about Daytona than a firm YES, we'll be there. Course they liked building a car so LMP2 was a stop-gap measure I felt, but it doesn't sound like LMP1 would be more than an advanced LMP2 car. The actual builder is homologating the car but guess win LM and take home the competition's watches has always been their goal and LMP1 gets them those fancier watches.
