Good race tonight. I really enjoyed the race finishing around dusk. A shame they didn't stick to the original start time, we would've had a properly dark end to the race. PWC really should explore adding at least one night race next season.
Agreed, that race was absolutely fantastic. James Sofronas got it right, PWC needs more of this. Imagine a day-to-night sprint at Road America...
Great win by Bergmeister & Long in the Wright Porsche, and a great charge to the podium by Morad & Dalziel in the CRP Mercedes.
Also, how about the KPAX guys getting the radiator on the #9 fixed quick enough for Parente to complete half the race, and thereby score points? That was awesome stuff.

Mega GTS race. Awesome drive by Scott Dollahite to take the win, and a nice run by Parker Chase to finish third all the way from the back of the field. Good solid races from Ian James and Rodrigo Baptista as well.

Definitely one of the best PWC races of the year so far.
Fantastic win for the Lotus team!

Interesting Sprint-X race. Some really good racing with a really sloppy broadcast and a few questionable officiating calls.

Strong run for Gainsco, Wolf Henzler's stint was fantastic.
Some really good pace from both #58 Wright Bergmeister/Long Porsche and the #2 CRP Mercedes w/ Dalziel/Morad. Impressive recovery from both cars after the afore-mentioned questionable calls. Last lap, last corner pass by Dalziel on Taylor in the #8 was brilliant, GT3-at-it's-best stuff. Tough late race sprint for the #8 Cadillac, lost positions to Henzler, Barnicoat and Dalziel in the final lap.

Impressive win by the #31, not a wheel put wrong the entire race.

Ride height infraction on Scott Dollahite's Lotus. Ian James and Panoz inherit the win: http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...ts-race-1-win/

Lotus Team was DQ'd, not classified and sent to the back of the pack for race #2. Panoz wins.

What was the reason for the disqualification?

Awesome GTS Race 2, the battle between Baptista, Chase and Gottsacker was fantastic. Tough race for Panoz, so Aschenbach takes the driver's championship.

Results cite TR 2.2.3, which is a ride height infringement. http://www.tsl-timing.com/file/?f=PW...3506rc1pw4.pdf

That is a bummer.

Great race by Rodrigo Baptista today. It looked like the Ginettas were faster. If they hadn't been racing each other so hard, I think they would have been able to get by the Lizard Porsche.

SCOOP! Race team angry about penalty that they don't think they deserved.
http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...nalty-protest/
Clearly this is huge news that warrants a big article.
Since when has any team (in any series) agreed with a penalty call against them?
Apparently, in addition to feeling that their penalty was unjust, Short also feels that the post race penalty against the #3 Cadillac was unfair.
Quote:
“I sat down with them yesterday, and the easiest way to put it is that [Race 1 pole-sitter] Johnny O’Connell who led the field to the green flag is getting a three-grid spot penalty for jumping the start.
“How does the guy jump the start that’s leading the field to the flag? You wave him off, or you green flag him. As soon as you green flag him, you’ve okayed him. He’s supposed to accelerate first and get the advantage on the field.

It is my understanding that the #3 car was cited for balking the start. (Speeding up and then slowing again.) Not for jumping it. IMO most of the confusion further back in the field was caused by that uneven acceleration.
I'm not sure what I think about the penalty against CRP. I think perhaps the call was a bit harsh, but I can say that I'm not particularly impressed with the teams reaction. It's understandable to be angry, but I think that there's probably better ways to voice their frustrations.
I think that I should probably give Mr. Short the benefit of the doubt and assume that most of the quotes came closely following the incident in question and that the tone would probably have been different if more time had passed. I was delighted to see the team rebound with the victory in Race 2. That was a much better note to end the weekend on.

I only saw highlights - but how good was the battle between Sofronas and Pappas in race 3?

Even with the contact (which Sofronas yielded back to Pappas afterwards) it appeared both sporting and intense. Highlight of the race by far.
