The "/live" option they use on YouTube doesn't always work. Because PWC doesn't use YouTube properly (schedule a live event and allowed it to be turned into a recorded video afterwards) and instead takes the videos up and down several times a day, sometimes the live page doesn't display the session that is actually streaming live. Often the stream is live but not listed as such because YouTube hasn't caught up to the chopping and changing. Also, that link doesn't work on other devices a lot of the time - some mobile phones and games consoles can only find videos, not account pages.

And during St Petes, the PWC official site was down.

In theory, you are correct, it isn't that hard. But as always with PWC, it could be and should be easier.

Looks like Callaway ran out of money.

Here's the entry list for Long Beach. The original car count was expected to be at least 20, but only 19 entries so far. With Callaway being a no-show, that would explain the drop in GT Sprint entries, and good to see TR3 is entered with Daniel Mancinelli. And big kudos to Tim Pappas/Black Swan Racing for his two GTA and one GTSA entries!

If this was a privateer team it would be more understandable. This is the factory though.

Plus it's a manufacturer using an American engine in America yet had a hard time finding one. It's kind of ironic as to who helped them out too.

But they don't build the engines so factory might be a stretch. I'd say they are the builder, do they get anything beyond permission from GM for their program?

But then again, it's not like the engine they use is a rarity. So for me their excuse is bs, esp as a few articles I've seen elsewhere have referenced inquiries to dealer networks reported 12 hour delivery of their LS9s so why couldn't they find one?

Several news pieces regarding entries for the remainder of the season.

Second Truspeed Audi set for the rest of the Sprint-X season.
http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...er-of-sprintx/

Plans are also in place for the GMG Porsche to complete the Sprint-X season + potential for more sprint races.
http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...sprint-season/

TR3 and Mancinelli have apparently gotten over their issues from St Pete and now say that they will contest the rest of the Sprint races after all.
+ DXDT claims that they will actually bring their Lamborghini Huracan GT3 to VIR for the Sprint-X race.

I think RFerri also has the Evo kit now, so there's really no difference between the cars now

Correct! The R.Ferri car had the update kit at CoTA last month.

The team themselves consider the program a factory. There's no excuses for them. It's pathetic.
