IMSA 2021

Early stuff from S365 looks like Wednesday's announcement could be interesting and honestly not so great for me but I'm willing to give it a bit.

LMP3s will be integrated to the big show, teams have reportedly placed orders specifically to use there.

GTLM will be the 4 car show for 2021. But likely not in 2022 with a GT3 pro. Would make sense as BMW will have their new GT3 by then.

Sept 9 announcement from IMSA in a virtual meeting.

FLGTFAN has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Aesthetically, I'd rather see a "Cup" GT class of Lambo/Porsche/Ferrari. Make GTD a "pro" class (it already is).

Cup GT of GT3s but with only Silvers? I think you'll see the Am celebrated in GTD still with something each round and potentially the LM entry offer again in GTE.

Keating is looking at IMSA next year, as well as WEC, depending on how the class rules breakdown.

https://sportscar365.com/lemans/wec/...on-2021-plans/

He seems to really like the GTEAM class in WEC, and is less of a fan of the factory backed GTD teams with pro drivers......

Think he's hopeful the GT Pro category gets created and LMP3 in the main event. I could actually see him do both again with GT for all rounds and his LMP3 for the enduros if they're invited.

Next year will be an interesting one for IMSA.

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2020/0...mpionship.html

LMP3 and LMP2 will be in and out of the championship for various rounds, with Daytona being a non-points round for both classes.

There are also some changes to qualifying, with GTD, lmp2 and lmp3 having a 2 driver format, one driver sets the grid and the other gets points for qualifying. Points for everything will be different next year and I'm still not sure why the change was needed.

Forgot that was today.

And we have our first bite, team moving from GS to LMP3 for 2021. Riley moving their entire GS Merc team to LMP3 Ligier with the possibility of a second.

https://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/r...ith-murry-cox/


Wonder if any LMP2 team can afford a Platinum in the car to assist the Bronze? Platinum will be allowed as full season codriver in 21. Maybe a holding place for a Platinum not signed but can stay in a Prototype until LMDh rules come in?

Also MP wrote ONLY new LMP3s or Evo cars allowed in the main show. Stick with the old ones and you're in the sub class of the support race. Prototype Challenge will retain LMP3s as well with a class for new and Evo cars and a class for the previous.

Interesting times at Daytona between LMP3 and the others. DPi at 1:46, LMP2 at 1:51, GTLM at 1:55, and LMP3 at 1:57. GTD were just over 2 min. Could be interesting with the GT cars.

Road Atlanta this weekend was DPi 1:09, LMP2 1:10, GTLM 1:17, GTD 1:20 and LMP3 at 1:41. I'm going to guess that 1:41 would fall by a not insignificant margin and the new cars are rumored to be about 2 seconds faster in Europe now in testing.

Per S365, IMSA announces new point structure, qualifying format for 2021. The highlights of the qualifying changes:

Quote:
Qualifying sessions for WeatherTech Championship LMP2, LMP3 and GTD classes will be broken into two segments and split between two drivers. The first segment will see Am drivers on new sets of tires in each car to set its starting position.

At the end of the Am segment, there will be a mandatory driver and tire change.

The driver in the second segment will qualify for championship points, also using new tires. The tires used in both qualifying segments must be used in the race, and all qualifying tires are considered part of each team’s event tire allocation.

canaglia should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridcanaglia should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
honestly IMSA points system has always been a joke since in low number class like dpi at example, a car has just to run one lap to automatically score 23 points for 8th place at worst... but now they are getting everything worse....
guess IMSA is too proud or stupid to use FIA points system...

IMSA's old ALMS points system is that you had to run a certain number of laps or time to get both drivers and team/manufacturers points. Then around 2003 they adopted the ACO 70% classification distance. Since the merger, it's been basically the old (pre-2003) system aside from the fact that you just have to take the green to get entry points and have to complete a certain number of laps or time to get drivers points.

I don't get it either, do they just think that a larger number of points sounds better?

That's a great point. I also wonder if this is to allow some drives for "sneaky platinums" (those exist, right?).

I'm not positive of the driver for the change, but bumping up the race points by ten allows the normal pts to be given for qualifying. Otherwise we'd have 35 for the win, and 3.5 for the pole. Would have rather seen a 3-2-1 point allocation for qualifying, but, my application for rule writing hasn't even been reviewed by HR.

I can tangibly tell the different between 63 and 58 points. 745 and 680 takes a split second and a smidgen more mental math effort.

Well if they all show up we'll have a podium at least for Daytona, Muehlner is planning for 2 Duqueine LMP3s for Daytona at least. They had run the 2019 IPC LMP3s before returning to Europe this year.

https://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/o...lmp3-addition/


The only thing I can come up with for Platinum in LMP2s is the guys just out of a factory ride or from Indy/Nascar to get in as well. There had to have been some asking about it for them to decide that but who asked. Other thought was teams trying to sell themselves as LMDh programs with a pro in the car to get the cheaper path to LM.

The points makes zero sense, even Nascar redid theirs to cut the number a couple years back I thought. Enough with quali points, make it a couple or something for pole if you must but 10% of a win? No way.
