Scott Pruett saw his time was probably up. At his age one bad season would do it. And he was horrific in the Lexus in 2017.

GTD full season prospects looks a tad better than a few days ago:
-#14 Lexus is set for full run
-#Turner BMW is optimistic
-#Shank working on expanding #86 Acura
-Wright looking at 2nd Porsche

I think we are still wondering why Alegra disappeared so fast and perhaps we'll get answers about Park Place during the entry list day for WEC?

Was it widely known that IMSA have started to use fuel flow sensors?

They announced it a while ago, supposedly for information purposes and not fuel limiting. Ast this time was left out of that sentence in the announcement I'm guessing.

Yeah I thought it would be for getting more data for the BoP process.

FormulaFox is a back marker
All DPi models within two seconds during the session for determining pit box selection. Mazdas still the slowest, but I'm not convinced Joest wants to push it yet - I doubt they consider pit selection all that important for an endurance race. Fastest Mazda did this "qualifying" session 1.3 seconds faster than the fastest Mazda at the Roar last year(1:37.263 to 1:39.574).

For the record, Mazda's race weekend qualifying time was 1:39.940 last year.

For the record, when I say "all DPi models" I do NOT mean all DPi ENTRIES - I mean each DPi manufacturer has at least one car within that range. Nissan and Mazda both had a car well outside of it.

Makes sense. It's easier to use such things to figure out how big or small a tank a given engine should be, after all. Fuel flow restrictions should be an all or nothing thing - something everyone has to build to in an open class rather than a BoP method.

Performance Tech confirmed Masson and French for the season. they feature the youngest driver lineup for Daytona, with French being the eldest at 25. All drivers are silvers.

They also complained about the pace of the DPi's. And said their budget for the season is roughly $2.5 million to run a P2.

Allegra are PWC bound in theory. But not sure why, I guess budget?

At least two of them are fake-silvers but alas.

I don't see the point in emphasizing the all silver line up either - it's not like you a need a silver in IMSA as full pro line ups are the norm in the class.

They let you know to make sure you know they are the little guys and the underdogs.

I'm rooting for them, Team Colombia, JDC and Core to be competitive. It's good to have teams graduate through the ranks and run near the front. Getting whitewashed by the DPi teams doesn't do much to incentivize teams moving up and developing.

Nice sponsor pickup for Turner...hopefully that is enough to get them through a full season.
