Thanks for that, sometimes it's easier to ask rather than trawl round

Hi all,

Ahead of this race this weekend I'd recommend watching this video from SAFEisFAST that they did from the Rolex 24. Features some IndyCar drivers and their thoughts on how different racing in sports cars is compared to single seaters.

Juttner praying to make it to the end of the race, and the P1 AER engine maybe for next year.

So they are running into engine problems because they solved the cooling issues and the motor is running at full capacity (which it can't handle)?

You cannot make this stuff up.

If the AER engine was a horse, it would've been sent to the glue factory a long time ago if I were in charge.

Joest never had these issues (certainly not to this degree) with Audi Sport or Porsche, but that probably also shows the differences in how Audi and Porsche handled their programs vs Mazda.

I'll tell you this: the Riley-Mazda is no Audi R8, R10, R18 or even R15, all of which are Sebring winners, and winners with Joest as the head man at the helm unless you want to count Wolfgang Ullrich.

They should drop AER completely imo. What they do next is up in the air, but imo AER is a problem altogether.

First practice is finished, and the times at the front are actually pretty close! The best of all dpi manufacturers finished within 3 tenths of each other. The only thing is the best of the lmp2's was 1.2 seconds behind in 11th, also behind ALL dpi cars. Not sure if it stays that way but it doesn't look like the p2 guys are as quick. In GTLM it's Ford and Ferrari up front with Chevy at the rear.

Chevy at the rear not BMW this time eh?

Yeah I noticed the DPI/LMP2 gap as well. But that is just for one session so far.

Look forward to the race of course. I don't have cable/satellite. Being in the USA the good way to follow the race is having 4 browser windows open: 1)Live timing 2)IMSA.com onboard cameras page 3)IMSA radio 4)Ten Tenths forum thread

Given the way the program has gone it certainly seems cluelessness continues. I guess the dark cloud hovering over the program isn't going away.

But, it bothers me that they would not have done dyno runs at different coolant temperatures and have found the issues before.

I like how the rumors about the Sebring WEC race are all negative It's like they never raced there before or something.
