Although Brady declined to offer specifics, he did confirm the sizable financial commitment required to register Nissan as an official IMSA manufacturer for 2019, which served as the biggest hurdle other teams faced while considering the Nissan DPi package, has been satisfied.

“Watch this space,” he said. “There are more details to come, and it has been fulfilled.”

From an outside (and utterly unreliable) source:

Snow and Sharp will race in the ELMS next year in the one of the ex-Core Oreca P2s (obtained in the 'Nissan DPi' deal with Bennett's team), allowing Snow to 'honor' his IMSA retirement. The renewed 'ESnow-M' team will also apply for a LM24 entry.

I actually figured he would pop up in Europe with some events just to keep himself in racing shape and he seems to very much enjoy it. And outside of IMSA he's still Silver and fast so a good option for many teams wanting a third for LM.

ESM is no more according to S365, even the LMP3 stuff was apparently sold. Wonder if Core picked that up as well to run a full service program. They seemed to be a good but of the LMP3 field and had a lot of Lites cars.

Everyone who is ticked off should remember Bacardi as the new owners of Patron pulled the sponsorship dollars. The boss wanted to retire and apparently sold everything and even cut off the daughter's cash for her drag racing. Ed didn't really have a choice in the matter other than to inform the team they were sponsor-less for 2019.

Teams come and go. There have been other departures that were bigger blows to the series. Dodge Viper and Falken Porsche are the two worst ones in the past few years, not ESM. And lets see what happens to PMR. That one is up in the air now that Madison is out of the picture

Their departure still stings for me. I was such a massive fan of that team and the car (the '96-99 Dodge Viper GTS was my first ever dream car). I had trouble keeping it in my pants when they decided to to run the red with white racing stripes for 2014.

I haven't read the rules for years, but there's nothing that I remember stating that a listed driver MUST drive.
I meant that I'm opposed to 5 pro drivers.

Compass Racing will run the rumoured mclaren 720s GT3 in the sprint cup.

Paul Holton / Matt Plumb

Was kinda hoping compass would run the car in PWC so we saw Flying Lizards run a mclaren in IMSA

Well who says they can't the door is open for anybody to run McLarens in the sprint cup now. Great addition! Finally one of the GT3 hold outs comes aboard the IMSA series. Hope we can get a Nissan since CORE settled that fee (along with some unspecified support). All of course without losing any of the 8 GT3 makes in 2018.

And it sounds like they'll aim for a full season in 2020:

“The new Sprint Cup is something we’d hoped IMSA would implement, as it provides a perfect ladder for our McLaren program, with steps from GS to Sprint to a full WeatherTech effort.”

I understood that. My question was what it was before I knew that the entered drivers must drive a min./max. amount of time for the team to get points. 'Silly to me.

Interested to see what colors will be on the CORE Ligier Nissan. Wonder if they'll stick with the blue and orange? I kinda wanna see something different because the Acura's have the orange theme too.
