Thx. Figured it was something like that, but Sebring is it's own little deal...

We could see DPI/LMP2 full season entries running between 15-20 cars in 2018. If GTLM and GTD remain the same as they are this year as I think they will. IMSA should look to start running split class races at places like CTMP, Mid Ohio, and Laguna Seca.

Why would they do that? In '16 there were that many P and PC class cars on the grid and they did not split them. The thought of running split races as a more common occurrence, is not what IMSA's model looks like!

Not the case. In 2014, CTMP did not run LMPC and did not run GTD in 2015. Laguna Seca ran split events in 2014 and 2016. Those are 2 of the tracks I mentioned in my previous post. The 3rd is a new track for the united series: Mid Ohio.

'17 CTMP full IWSC grid (all classes) 36 cars
'17 Laguna race full IWSC grid (all classes) no split
'18 Mid Ohio = 2.4 mile track > we'll see the full IWSC field.

Atherton has repeatedly stated that split races will only occur where it has to and that IMSA does not want to split the grid. An expansion of split races is not on the horizon!

I am sure that Lime Rock, Long Beach and Detroit, as long as the remain on the schedule will be 'split' races.
VIR may see a full grid at some point

As I've said elsewhere, I hope the P cars do make a return to VIR. I'm glad they plan to keep splits to a minimum.

I would expect IMSA to use the 2.258-mile layout, which straight-lines the first part of the Keyhole, as has been standard practice for IMSA, ALMS, GA, IndyCar, etc. since the new option became available in 1990.
