Helio probably could have done another one for pole but thought he already sealed it. Damn Cadillac's!

As this is the beginning of the year, I have to say once again that IMSA's website is a steaming pile of dog ****. ...there, I feel better!

Sounds like it was a good session. What happened to the Nissans?

The #2 never have leave the pits for precaution about something they found.

The #22 crashed at corner 5 I think. Lapierre went straight and damaged the right front.

Several people seemed to get wide at T5 / west horseshoe in the P cars. Lapierre went the widest and found the tires.

Top 8 entirely made of Cadillacs and Orecas, covered by a whopping half a second.

Mazda posted a 1:36.633, less than a tenth off of 8th place(1:36.567), and almost 3/10ths over 10th place(1:36.931). Good signs on their pace, though the failure of the second one to run the session is cause for concern. For reference, the fastest Mazda last year did 1:39.

The top 13 in P were within a second of pole with the 13th fastest time being set by Fernando Alonso at 1:37.008 - the only Ligier(or Ligier-based) car to go under 1:38.

From the look of things, a considerably more fairly-balanced field than last year, but still some concerning gaps. I'm of the belief that there will never be a truly properly balanced race at Daytona due to it's unique nature, there only being one opportunity to get it right each year and it happening at the start of the season making it impossible to use season-long performance as a metric(things always change a bit during off-season development, even in classes that restrict such).

But I think this is the closest we'll ever see the P class get at Daytona. Particularly considering that the difference from pole to second was 0.007s between two cars that can't get much different without being in different classes.

It's almost like they make it purposely obtuse. I only use the "competitors" section or their separate results site, because heaven forbid you would want a nice easy way to find and view results on the main site.

I agree, 13 cars in a second is a great BoP job. The fastest DPis are equal with the Orecas, so if IMSA can't apply BoP on the P2 cars, I can't see how they could improve the performance of the slowest P2 cars.

I don't know what happens with the Ligier, because their top speed is good, the engine is the same Gibson as the Orecas, but their lap time is far from the top. Maybe they need to understand better how the new splitter work.

There is nothing to do about the Riley/Multimatic. It's plain slow, the team received the last new parts before practice 1 and the drivers don't know the new P2 cars. So, it's not crazy to think that this car could be faster at the end of the race than we saw today. If they can run in 1.39 1.40 it will be a miracle.

Yowzers.

I heard in reference to GTLM that they couldn't touch the cars after quali. 77 didn't qualify so they're obviously going to start at the rear but are they fracturing a rule?

No you can't touch your car if you are in the top 3 or one of the random spot check I think. But even after those checks you are allowed to do what you want. I mean you can change setup and things for the night practice and then the race.
