Rain trending for next Saturday at the Roar.
Always good to get some slippery practice in.

Still waiting for IMSA to post an entry list.

Such an ugly thing, and so true. I look at Petit in 2009 when they only stopped it when the Audis started floating on the puddles, and Petit 2016 when most of the race was a parade because the world's best sportscar drivers only drive in optimal conditions ...

All rain will mean at the Roar is misery for the drivers and the spectators.

Rain at the Rolex will mean a parade or a parking lot.

There is a slight chance they will be required to run
the car at race speed during damp conditions
even only a 1/2 lap. Therefore ,one would like to know what the
(especially a new ) car will do in the damp. Its nice to know
the wet limits when the trophy is on the line.

Play your cards right, you can pass the folks in the damp
who are waiting for the yellow to be thrown.

Then again , some teams might not want to risk tearing there
stuff up in practice if its wet.

This. Since the race won't run in the wet, why risk the car for nothing?

Oh, there will be some GTD teams running around out there---there likely won't be any standing water, and for teams with limited test time, like one-off GTD teams, it might be worthwhile to run even at low speed.

And who knows? Maybe IMSA will officiate differently this year.

On another hand---Continental is debuting all-new tires this year (http://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/qa...mp3-expansion/) so possibly they will want teams to test their rain tires---or possibly teams will want to.

Rain will still be miserable for the spectators.

Not sure if they are 'required' to run, but it is probably prudent.

Wonder why an entry list has not been released yet. Cars unload in 3 days. Maybe waiting on some team announcement or something?

Qualifying started bad and got worse, too ... I forget that stuff because, why remember misery?

I also remember Petit 2015, when it wasn't raining hard at all ... and the cars weren't racing much at all.

Worth being soaked all weekend, to see the Porsche win.

I lived it.

Many hour were spent in the back of the van after qualifying with the heat on full blast to dry my shoes.
