The SCs after the FCYs has absolutely destroyed the Pro/Am and Am battles. If the lead car is between 2 Pro/Am cars, then rather than a 10-second gap between the cars, it is artificially lengthened to a full lap. The result is cars with close performance are now 4-5 laps apart.

This is exactly what the IMSA wave-around is designed to prevent. SROs system is a step backwards for multi-class racing.

They should just keep to the FCY, and leave the SC out of it.

If the SC is there to get the speeds up - like John always says - they could also introduce FCY phase 2: 120 (or 150 or whatever) instead of 80 and do that for a lap (leader on start /finish to leader on start/finish). That would keep all gaps intact.

Varsha seems to think Paffett is in position. Meanwhile, Watson tries to work out "Rock, Scissors, what's the other one?"

That's all rather messy - Paffett & Christensen, Christensen & Buurman, Paffett & Christensen Rd 2, Paffett & Mies. One or more of those cars could easily have been taken off.

Meanwhile, Jarvis is still ahead of the lot of them!

Edit - Buurman can't get past Jarvis, Christensen re-takes the position.

Mies has passed Paffett (not for position). But Mies is behind Jarvis on track, so that's a battle that'll happen once this Nissan is dropkicked out of the way by a frustrated lead lap car.

I think he's retired (or retiring) from DTM and he's now being mediocre in Formula E instead.

All that effort for lap after lap to get past Jarvis, and Mies does it in the first corner he catches the Nissan!
