Higher cornering speed. Some GTLM cars do have trouble passing the GTD cars on the straights (the Lamborghini last year was pretty fast)

The Lambo was illegally fast lol. That car and it's restrictior is one of the main reasons for the IMSA homologation being separate from the Blancpain set now.

Question...'haven't read the regs. in years....Is the field now maxed at 56? The article (http://nasportscar.com/2017-weathert...before-the-24/) states "mandatory test" which I don't remember (one way or t'other, 'know it's so for Le Mans) and am curious if any add'l entries would be allowed....thanks.

That's a good question. Did not really know the ROAR was mandatory
for entry into the 24.

I found this link to the Regs.

Thank you very much Coach. At least someone understood the question. So we're maxed at the 56 Roar participants.

55 cars were entered and participated in the Roar tests. Page 4 of the competitors supplementary regulations here http://competitors.imsa.com/sites/de...24h_122116.pdf states that the field is capped at 60 cars for practice and qualifying but oddly 57 for the actual race. But since the regulation of only allowing cars from the test to race exists I would think 55 is the max number. Perhaps IMSA would allow a team already entered to add a second car for the race up to the maximum of 57 allowed.
