So, for a bit of perspective, an LMP900 set the fastest lap of the event in 2002 at a 1:39.618.

The pole lap in GTLM was set today at a 1:40.211, so not even 0.6 of a second difference.

Same layout? Was there a recent repave? That's pretty fast for GTE to be near old lmp speeds.

VIR's layout has never changed. Was repaved in 2000 and 2014.

And to be more accurate, the Grand Am cars in '02 weren't true LMP900s (they lacked rear diffusers) and they were also running on tires that probably weren't a good as the ALMS teams had available to them even back then.

Of course LMP1s in 2013 were lapping 8 seconds faster than they were 13 years earlier at Sebring, so who knows how much faster they'd be at VIR. Or the DPIs, which at most tracks thus far have been capable of lapping at least as fast as 2002 spec LMP900s.

ALMS did run at VIR with protos, and in 2012 the Muscle Milk HPD ran a 1:35 in qualy while GT pole was 1:45 for the ESM ferrari.

GTLM times in qualifying are close to LMP2 in ALMS 2013 at VIR. I wonder if the DP/P2 cars of 2014-2016 ran today. They would barely be faster than the GTLM cars which really are quick around VIR. But I'm glad we don't have to worry about that or DPIs. Because VIR is a great track to have all GT racing.

I am very pleased that IMSA is keeping VIR and Lime Rock to be all GT races in 2018. Also removing GTD from Long Beach is probably a good thing. Although I would have preferred that also be all GT. But I guess that would have made the DPI schedule too light.

I've got it via FS1 on the Tube. Was hoping someone would have one of those cool un-geoblocked YouTube links.

Man, life just sucks some days. I don't get to work today, I have to stay home in front of the big screen, and now because of that meddler Nick Woodbury, I have to watch a commercial-free stream and listen to the RLM announcers.
