Round 2: the Long Beach Grand Prix

I just wanted to kick off discussion for the next round (even if it's a ways off), so here's a bit of news: Alex Job Racing has just received their Lotus Evora GTE. I doubt they'll be able to do much with it, but I guess we'll have to wait and see...

I know AJR can run a decent show ..... but how might they developing this , I dont know ?

Is there any support or wedge going their way ?

I wish them the best with this striking machine and hopefully add some more flare to the ALMS GT class , which imo is brilliant .

I hope it works for them, and great to have them back in the big(er) GT class. Also, I wish I had invested in the Black and Gold paint pigment companies.....

36-car provisional entry for Long Beach

3x P1
4x P2
9x PC
12x GT
8x GTC

Effectively the same as in Sebring but with second Dyson, gues starring AMR Vantage and AJR with Evora (minus GTC Porsche). Very impressive entry, makes the ELMS list look kinda lame

So it looks like the 2nd Dyson is last year's car for now, what's with the /66 though? Did they upgrade it from last year's /86?

P1 looks like it's gonna be another great year even with 3 cars (again), but sadly Level 5's probably going to be unstoppable in P2 unless the Conquest guys can get their act together.

Lola 1x/6x is the designation for LMP1, they use 1x/8x as the designation for LMP2.
Tim Pappas told me at Sebring Black Swan are upgrading their B11/80 to 2012 spec mid-season to take the fight to Level 5 although the Dempsey guys told me they didn't think he'd be able to as they believe the tub is different? Perhaps Mulsanne Mike can set us straight? I thought the upgrade could be done based on the Radio Le Mans interview of the guys at Huntingdon in the offseason.

I'm excited to see how Black Swan do. Sebring was a bit of a learning experience, and the shortest race of the season will be quite a different event. I have faith BSR will be competitive. Also hoping Conquest figures out the game, to make the class even better.

Is 36 the maximum number of entries at Long Beach? There is one car (GT - can't mention names or manufacturer as I would be breaking confidence, hoping the program comes together for round 3) I expected to see and it is not there and the Libra Radical is absent too...

FWIW, World Challenge is also capped at 36, I think, so it's a GT/GTS only round for them.

He said that he wanted an entry but the list was already full.

Funny thing is, counting the Challenge cars, the ALMS Long Beach Grand Prix has a bigger entry list than the Grand-Am race this weekend

Perhaps so but CTSCC has around 75 cars lined up for Barber, which is quite astounding really

It's been like that for pretty much all of last year.

But then, it's of course easier to live with a < 30 car field when you only have two classes.
