Great race, end of a short era, no more Contis, maybe no more Nissan, and we will have almost a formula Caddy with at least seven cars of the brand.
No penalty I don't believe, they were running low on fuel and possibly had a puncture towards the end. I may have missed it but it seemed like Paul was calling them out right after the "last round" of pit stops that it was prob 8-10 laps too early.

Thanks. I couldn't see the car stopping, and the commentators in FS3 said it was a passthrough penalty. The car was slowing down the laps before to enter to the pits, so it have sense what you said.

I read somewhere that Pipo had a puncture and had to make their (originally planned) last pitstop many laps early. In short, the puncture likely cost them the victory.

Not sure if it was tounge-and-cheek or serious, but there was a hint of Porsche GT team running special livery at Daytona. If so then I suggest Champion and Rohr livery. Having 3 or 4 911 RSRs there would be awesome and thankful as well!

The Ford GT never seemed to be best car in the field at night. I don't think the car has ever won Sebring nor the Petit Le Mans. The two races that finish at night. Fading in the last hour again shows this.

I saw it in a few articles about Petit so I think IMSA will be pushing for special liveries related to IMSA 50th anniversary for 2019. I think we will see old IMSA liveries on the Porsches over international ones.

I hadn't noticed this until today, but the 3rd place Mazda had to go on the grass to take the checkered flag and get past the ailing Action Express car. RvZ posted a link to the final lap on twitter and you can see the Mazda go wide. I think it was the 55 with Pigot aboard

Crazy.

Yeah, best race I've seen in a bit. Sure, there were some ugly parts, but all 10 hrs can't perfect!

If we take in mind what we have thought at the beginning of the year, I think it was a lot better than what we expected. There wasn't a Cadillac or Acura strong domination, even the P2 cars were part of the action in most races, and the Mazdas did it better than the most crazy expectations. Some races were rare, as Mid Ohio, but at least I'm very happy with how it all was.

We all want diversity of cars and engines, but beside costs, and looking at the WEC I think IMSA did it very well.
