Bcarr6 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
California 8H 2017

Please delete if a repeat, but couldn't find anything

With only a matter of weeks left to the California 8H at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway, I thought it'd be good to start a discussion on the race.

I'm curious as to how this event will feel, most modern Racing we see at Laguna Seca is based roughly around the sprint format, so it'll be interesting to see how the race goes, and how the multi class race format works on the circuit. I envision is being most like a round of the B12hr, as classes are the same with even a few Marc cars to boot.

Below is my accumulated entry list from various announcements, the latest being a pair of Acuras. This is only the confirmed cars, looks like we can expect K Pax, Magnus and a bunch of other PWC teams to announce efforts soon. I hope we may also see the odd IMSA GTD team too, but with the Cota 24hrs too I figure that is less likely.

S365 puts grid size estimates in the mid 30s

Where is the link, but yeah I've been wondering about estimates for the Laguna 8 hours myself. Looks like the GT3 grid will be dominated by PWC teams. Would be cool if a couple SRO teams commit too. I imagine it will be televised by GTWorld. Would be awesome if John Watson comes in to commentate.

Excited to go racing with @m_winkelhock and @Pierre_Kaffer for 8H of Laguna Seca!

While the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge season has come to a close, Magnus Racing’s efforts are actually not finished yet, with a soon-to-be-announced program coming soon, and the team already hard at work in preparation.

Nope, but got to figure SRO will ensure it runs on their GT World account right?

Another great lineup, from the announced so far my money is on a fight between Magnus and Land

Although I'm assuming we will see a full pro Porsche too, after the Bernhard success at Spa

I hope so, the GT World account is the most accessable. Bathurst was IGTC but streamed by NISMO.TV only. They do a great job but the videos are often randomly geoblocked or have embedded permissions adjusted.

Via YouTube? Most live streams remain up on YT after they're done, and I can't find it now.

YouTube is great because every device ever works with it, and it keeps it for the future. Hope the IGTC goes down the route of using the GT World account.

However:

"In addition, the middle portion – 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. — of the California 8 Hours will be televised worldwide on www.sro-motorsports.com."

Could be still full race on GT1World/Youtube since this is a press release by CBS...
