2020 Roar Before the Rolex 24 - Jan. 3-5



YES! It is that time again...It is nearing the end of December, and that means only one thing, the ROAR is right on our doorstep!

Below are some necessary resource links for the 2020 ROAR, including the IMSA Competitor's Portal, which is an excellent resource for some in-depth information in regards to race weekends.

Official ROAR Schedule

The weather looks divine for the upcoming weekend, with it cooling off significantly by Sunday. Slight chance of rain on Friday the 3rd.

Thanks to Racecast weather for the forecast.

1. The ROAR is coming up pretty fast eh? I forgot it was this weekend almost. That is because I'm typing this in 2019 still I guess.

2. Love that the Scouts has made this event their own and attends the event. This WILL generate new fans for sure.

3. Been discussed but I think the ROAR should only be required for full season and NAEC entries in the future. For one offs it should be optional. Still have the pit lane/garage space time trials. Any one off that elects not to attend the ROAR will have to accept that consequence and have a bad pit stall or garage space, but that's ok I think. I bet we could gain 5 or so more entries if this adjustment was in place.

4. Can't wait to get some cool youtube videos from this event come Friday evening. If any of you guys are reading this who take the videos. Lets get some vids that are over 20 minutes each :-)

Great thread start! I'm really looking forward to the Roar this year, well I guess I'm looking forward to Daytona more, but this lets me know it is right around the corner!

S365 article posted says that WRT is going to run Sebring this time. So at least one good thing is that there will be fewer Daytona one-offs in comparison to Sebring. Of the 40 cars on the entry list for Daytona. I can only see at most 3 not being at Sebring..62 Risi Ferrari, 98 Aston Martin, maybe the 2nd PR Matheson P2 as well.

If you want to watch the Prototype Challenge race during the Roar, you'll have to purchase NBC's new Trackpass thing which you have to pay for to watch, blech. Not that it's an arm and a leg by any means though.



I hope this doesn't mean we will have to pay to watch Pilot Challenge, Porsche Cup or Prototype Challenge throughout the season from now on.

That pretty much ends the interest in them for gentlemen in the PCs and businesses on the Pilot Challenge cars doesn't it? They already were airing much later on NBCSports but now live has a fee and NOT the fee with Gold Pass where at least you could get Indy stuff as well. How dumb is management exactly?

Went and reread the announcement article. Sounds like Prototype and Pilot challenge races will still air on cable packages and youtube delayed as they did last season. This only impacts live coverage.

I briefly thought about it since $20 a year isn't that bad and you would get weathertech activity as well. Then I realized it's probably the NBC broadcast feed. For all the crap RLM receives, I still prefer their commentary and lack of ads so I'll continue using the vpn for international feeds again this year.

Did I miss a new livery for Mazda for 2020?




I missed the US, Japanese and German flags on the front before. German to be peeled off after Sebring?

Interesting. Was Idemitsu on the cars at all in previous years?

Looks good to me. The cars were incredibly hard to tell apart before, so this will make it stand out a bit.

Also had to look up that new sponsor and it says:

I've never thought of a oil company enriching my life, but i guess it's true

Thanks for the thread and links Nick, you're the man!
I'm excited to get the racing season started again, though it seems like Petit Le Mans just happened.
Not real excited about the weather. Local forecasts showing it uncomfortably warm Friday and rainy most of the day Saturday. Could be worse though and things should be real nice for the Saturday night session.

Maybe I missed something, but where’s the GTD McLaren on the entry list? I thought they were just doing the sprint races last year and a full season this year? As lately I’ve only been attending Sebring and Petit I was hoping to see it for the first time in March.

RWR has appeared and are targeting adding a second car for their LM program, and more LMP2 races this season.
