If the rain is so heavy that a gt win is in sights, then the rain will be heavy enough for safety car or red flag.

At least GTLM and GTD will get some respect and discussion during this thread unlike the WEC Spa discussion thread where nobody (accept for my attempts to trigger talk) talked about the great GTE race it had. All anybody wanted to talk about was the boring LMP1 race.

I don't like or understand this rule. The car that leads the race, whether through conditions or pit strategy as the BMW did at long beach, should he allowed to lead the race until passed. It makes things more interesting occasionally. I wish they would do away with this rule.

I put on my tinfoil hat to note that the Acura's are quickest at their home track....

And there are multiple GTD cars in the midst of the GTLM's.

Also Trummer 4th overall in the JDC Oreca
So about that tin foil hat.....

Acura 1/2 in prototype, Acura pole for gtd.... Rll gets pole at home track after being nowhere last race after being up front the race before..... I love the series and all, but I wish these thoughts weren't a part of it.

Hopefully this is like the split start rule that went away after the first year or two, where they realize it isn't allowing for the best show to be put on.

Great point as well. That was silly. Both the old start and current re-start procedure is from the Grand Am side of things.

Sunny and warm near Mid Ohio right now. Anyone think that the rain will hold off until about 4:00 when the race should be over (scheduled for between 1:00-3:45 approx).

If I'm around and get errands done. I'll do it the usual way. GTLM streaming on boards, IMSA Radio, and live timing
