2023 IMSA Season

IMSA is considering removing two races and adding an Indianapolis endurance race.

https://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/i...ions-for-2023/

I'm intrigued by this phrase:

(The Indy enduro race) has been rumored to feature a unique race length, potentially for marketing purposes
Maybe the Indianapolis 5 Hours?

5 minutes is 7 too long, that's a GARBAGE track. I'll accept it for Indy, teams are there, preparation for the biggest race of the season, great. NASCAR, just skip the whole place guys Brickyard races almost all sucked and the road course was JUNK last year. There's just no personality to the road course and sportscars aren't all about the oval speeds so why?

Oh yeah, the pagoda, the contacts, the press the flesh moments and Roger. Parents went to Indy multiple years as guests and Pratt & Whitney, Mom was the only person on the pagoda balcony during the race. Rest of the time was ALL about trying to sell aircraft engines and people who really didn't care what was happening outside the room. Most didn't even know what kinda cars they were, Mom would skip school with her father and watch mid-week testing at Trenton so she was a bit familiar with the older roadsters over now but at least knew a bit

That schtick is getting old, I've seen multiple legal people respond with it is not a violation, they write the rules and get to make the entry requirements. I like the car, and think the IMSA rule is stupid but the Frances aren't going to suddenly say sht our lawyers didn't read this first, and we released it again after he threatened legal action to clarify our position and we didn't make sure again? Yeah, gonna guess they're good and he'll get dismissed quick. But sell a car THEN make the claims, until we see the car ready to go I don't care

The new track for Detroit is a Caddy track if setup and drivability remains the same. Lots of straights and square corners.

If IMSA races there. I watched the TV coverage, and they made it seem as as if that was still up in the air. You'd think if it was a given, then the best time to announce it would be this weekend.

IMSA likes to confirm tracks later in the season, usually Augustish I think it's been. So nothing to see with the no confirmation, just the schedule as usual. As long as Caddy and Corvette run and fund the race IMSA will accept the check and let them have their moment. Even with GTD Pro not there, Corvette still had trackside presence.

Not that I find this surprising but had some hope before official announcement.

Just listened to Marshall Pruett And Graham Goodwin, with Marshall saying that he'd be shocked if there wouldn’t be complete accommodations for Le Mans next year. Given that both the dates of Detroit and Le Mans have been announced, complete accommodations would mean no IMSA race (or at least no IMSA GTP) at Detroit.

It would be for a SINGLE car, Penske isn't moving the IMSA cars over and CGR has the WEC already going. But we'll find out at Road America

Maybe the Detroit race wouldn't automatically count towards the championship as in only 5* results from the 6* non endurance races will count? (*numbers just for reference purposes, I'm not sure how many non endurance races there will be for the new GTP class - or currently are for the DPi class).

That's my first thought, allows a "Sprint Cup" within the series ala GTD, or it becomes a GTD/Pro race event only.
