Devils advocate here, but if the 66 didn't drive the 4 off the road and then wide in the corner, he'd have never spun on the dirty tyres. They were both at fault for that one.

^this.

It's late in the race, both were pushing, shat happens and the 66 gets a warning for blocking so that's that.

The warning was for Briscoe blocking Fisichella though, not the #4/#66 incident.

Oh. Thanks. I misheard that.

EDIT: The warning was given to the 66 for the incident with the 4. Just went back and confirmed it. The incident was investigated and Mueller (not Briscoe) received the warning, per fox broadcast.

Well I expected the corvette to win because bop but not like this so good for them.was not expecting the BMW to take off like they did but to bad they had a tire issue in the last minutes,not Porsche for once.

Gtd was good,glad to see the factory teams have miserable races were they don't belong.

VIR always seem to provide great races - this year was no exception, very enjoyable to watch.

It's just awesome to see the cars hopping the curbs and getting some air!

An additional, separate prototype race would be welcomed though.

If they were to send prototypes that's the only way but with the old PCs gone a just DPi/P2 race might not look so great. And adding LMP3 would be tough since I think a few of the PC series teams run both LMP3 and Lites cars

Looked like the Ford thought he was ahead going into that right hand turn. Neither wanted to yield but the Ford's nose was ahead of the Vette from the onboard. I think it's a racing incident.

Not sure how the Ford being ever so slightly ahead of the Corvette tells us anything here.

The actions of Mueller blocking / double move on the straight and then moving the Corvette wide into the dirty portion of the track attributed to the incident more than anything Milner did.

I guess Tommy's mistake was trying to pass him and Mueller's was trying to not let him. I agree, it was mostly a racing incident, once it got to the actual breaking zone.

Agreed. Could argue that if Mueller had driven cleanly then the accident would never have happened.

I got to see the race finally from the youtube replay. Could not follow it on Sunday. Some thoughts:

1) TV quality broadcast just awesome. VIR is a very very TV friendly track.

2) Great to have Owen T on the broadcast. He is good as I have heard him a lot on the Sportscar Unleashed podcast which I highly recommend (scunleashed.com)

3) Very interesting race. Even with all of the contact. Big props to race control to keep it green flag the whole way. Really helps make the all GT races look very good and proper. Big showcase for all GT racing once again. There has not been a bad one yet.

4) I had a feeling despite the domination that BMW was in trouble with their fuel in the last hour. The contact with the #4 which I did not know until I read the post race report was not the ultimate reason why it did not win.

5) Can't blame BoP for this one. The #3 Corvette executed a flawless race. They are the deserved winners.

6) The Porsche GT team has some work to do for sure! Seemed to be struggling to run ahead of the #16 Change Lambo in the early stages. Let alone running with the GTLM's.

7)Great to see the Change team finally get the victory. Well deserved and overdue.

8) Hey Lexus: Fire Sage Karam. He is a hack. Alon has to go too.

9) Katherine Legge's career is looking shaky too. She has NOT been impressive at all. I thought this year was her chance to shine. And she has simply not gotten the job done. I am gutted for the MSR Acura team. 2 straight double DNF's is not deserved.
