First photos are in from Daytona:

Big Beemer has a big rear diffuser.

It seems that only the Ligier-based cars are running a true LM-like aero trim. Cadillacs have trim tab dive planes similar to what the LM and sprint spec Audi R18s used to run. And the Oreca based cars are running a single HD dive plane.

That's pretty cool, even for blue and orange. Need snow blinders to look it!

BAR1 wants to emulate ByKolles even in the colour. It need just a bit of yellow.

Maybe they can borrow some yellow from the PR1 car nextdoor.

Just an FYI, we will be running a Fantasy Racing Challenge again this year for IMSA. The Daytona thread can be found here:

Rules are pretty simple. Pick who you think is going to win and you get the points that car scores.

Much better than last years IMO. Did you see the other side of the car is running blue wheels?

This will probably be about the 30th year of attending this race for me, my first being in 1984 (I missed some of them along the way) and I still get hyped up every year to be attending. Getting there early Thursday morning and will be back and forth throughout the week since I live only about 45 minutes away. I'm ready to do A LOT of walking and hopefully the rain holds off until late Sunday.

I'm driving my "camper" over to NASCAR 2 for Qualifying and taking pictures on the stand they've got back there.

Good summary of the setup compromises for Daytona that GT cars have to make from Rick Mayer at Risi.

This might be the most excited I've ever been for any Daytona, bar 2006 (because I attended...so not a fair judgement).

IMSA is just looking absolutely brilliant now days.
