Looks like the Cup car. Assuming they're trying to break it because that's a lot of abuse!

Yes, if they eat the kerbs in this way, it's for the Carrera Cup. It's surprising to see turbocharged engines (now on production cars) in the Cup and atmo engines in WEC. The magic of regulations...

The press release I've seen, says the Craft-Bamboo car will be #991 not #88.

And a crazy stat according to Graham Goodwin on Twitter: first time since 1963 that no Porsche has been on the podium in ANY class at Daytona.

Wow, that is indeed a crazy stat! I guess there has always been a class where the 911 could be competitive in the past.

Doesn't have anything to do with BoP.

Look at the fastest laps from the race, they're #2 -- .005 behind the #51 Ferrari.

It's the driver lineups.
