That's indeed what they were for. No vision for this one.

At least Tincknell is going for it 1:37.2, fastest lap of the weekend for Mazda, still 0.9 off the top though.

If IMSA makes with BoP the Cadillacs 1 second slower, the rest of the grid it's all in the same second. A lot better than last year.



The Multimatic showed finally some speed. Still far but for the first time into 1.39

Well at least we can't say the Cadillacs are filled with sand.

13 cars in the same second, it's really impressive. The Cadillacs ruins the party being so fast. I'm not sure if the Ligier and Nissan were benefited with the aero upgrade.

Acura, Nissan and Mazda mixed with the LMP2 as they look today is what we should see all the time.

Makaze has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Still shows the Cadillacs engines should be max 5.0 L.

At 6.2L they was very little stressed performance wise and at 5.5L are still stressed little(but revs better now).

IMSA should try to give 40kg extra ballast to cadillac's and cut 30kg from oreca/ligier. Caddys need to lose more than half second, oreca and ligier need to gain one.
5L is the worst displacement for a NA; too much large to have good consumes, not enough large to have turbo torque levles.

Best solution: IMSA should force GM to drop the V8 and suggest them to use the V6 twin turbo from the cadillac gt3.

Good run by the Acuras, 1 seg behind the Cadillacs in their first meeting. They´ll be a match for them once they evolve the package.

Grasser is 2 car team. They will be very happy with the garage/pit location. Ford too. I don't think Mustang Sampling can pair up with Whelan though.

The team that will have the longest distance between their garage and pit stall. CORE autosport Oreca will be right at pit exit I think.

Cadillac again fastest in the last practice session. Looking like a walkover for them barring any issues. The only hope is the race-pace isn't as big of a gap we've seen.

It doesnt explain the gap with the others, but who really thinks penske is showing their full pace? Or that they won't find more between now and daytona?

What were the performance gaps last roar? Are we at least dealing with a lesser gulf this year? Because if so, considering the balance was about perfect by seasons end, I wouldn't be discouraged. Also, I'll mention again, cadillac is the most sorted package with the most testing and the most number of teams working simultaneously on the same package for more ideas to come through and realize greater performance. I don't know that I would feel quite right if the best and most sorted package was nerfed down to the lesser packages' performance.
