They're supposed to be about halfway between the old P2 cars and the 2013 R18 at Le Mans, so you'd expect around a 47.5 for pole. Low 49 is probably fine for testing.

I would call it expected based on power and aero... they dip below the 1:47 i'll be shocked.

Being expected does not mean it isn't a significant gain.

Fact is that the DPIs won't be going any faster than an Audi R8 could do nearly 15 years ago. Granted, DPIs weren't exactly designed to do sub-1:45 lap times, but at the same time, something faster than a 1:48 would be nice.

Especially considering that LMP2 cars on LMP2 spec Dunlops were running 1:46s or 1:47s in testing last fall. I'd believe that tires make up a lot of that difference.

I guess that I'm lamenting that a decade in a half's worth of development means that the top class won't be any faster than those 15 year old cars.

***Filipe Albuquerque’s pace-setting 1:49.759 time set on the opening day of the IMSA-sanctioned test at Sebring was reportedly more than 1 second slower than Action Express Racing’s best lap set in a private here in December. However, it’s unclear what power configuration the Cadillac DPi-V.R was running in at the private test, as the cars have faced a decreased air restrictor this week.

Did I say it wasn't?

No. I didn't. I just said it wasn't that much faster. Nothing else to infer.

And even with that private test, they're still not that close to what ACO spec LMP2s were turning in the fall. Again, I'd have to think that the difference between the Dunlop and Conti rubber has a lot to answer for.

Also considering that most of the field it seemed spent most of the day still off the Dallara-Cadillac pace.

I think Caddy has more pace. The conditions may be different from their previous test, but I expected them to go at least in the 1:48's. I doubt any DPi will get that far under 1:49 at this test because fear of negative bop, which is sad imo. If the dunlop tire'd p2's were in the 1:46's, there's definitely performance left on the table from the rubber.

I would like to know the Dunlop test lap times to compare the chassises with the Gibson engine.

4th test session underway and currently Derani leads in the ESM Nissan with a 1:50.974 which I think is their best so far.

It's almost the same temp in North GA as it is in Central FLA today. 83 at the old airfield but I bet it feels like 110 with something burning close by.

Can't wait to be at the race and already in preparation for the heat...
