What's the answer then? Replace ST wholesale with TCR? Or recreate ST as a customer car class at a lower than TCR level of performance and cost, e.g. around the BMW 235IR or even the TMG Toyota GT86?

TCR.

It'll make the races more interesting too, because TCR cars are nearly as quick, or faster than GT4 cars at certain tracks.

The inter-class battles are probably not going to happen. Had a twitter convo with Karl Thomson of Compass 360 a bit ago and he thought that the TCRs would be pegged back by lower performance ECU settings. Apparently the Audi has four setting between 290 and 350bhp.

IMSA has said they're going to let them run as full-bore TCR spec cars.

The Clubsport ones in PWC are de-tuned to compete int he TC class.

For the event itself, which should have some cars on course shortly, Friday looks wet, Saturday looks dry-ish and Sunday looks wet.

Sounds like there's been heavy rain and local flooding around and on the circuit itself, where some portions of the track were under water. With the forecast, it could be an ugly weekend.

Hoping for drier weather and good luck to those attending!

Wow. I know we had a lot of rain today but those are some amazingly bad pictures. They have pumps going trying to clear that?

And more rain is forecast for the Elkhart Lake/Plymouth area. Friday there's a chance of rain, Saturday might be mostly dry, but there's a chance of rain again Sunday.

My main concern is how much water will it take to cause ponding, especially since there's already been heavy rain in the area this week.

A little wet weather action wouldn't be bad, but you're right, if the track floods it isn't good for anyone.

If the ground's saturated, it might not take much to flood parts of the track. Remember that the '07 ALMS race almost got red flagged and was under yellow for almost an hour because of heavy rain.

If the ground can't hold anymore water, a decent thunderstorm could cause the track to flood in low areas.

Nice to see under certain wet/tire conditions the GTLM's can get up in the overall top 5 for brief periods at least.

I wish the DPI/Gibson engines did not have so much horsepower, then we could get more of that.
