It's nothing new, they denied entry from Riley Viper 5 years ago at COTA as well for no reason

Both Ginettas have been withdrawn from COTA for yet to be specified reasons.

Also, Jan Magnussen and Mike Rockenfeller are reportedly getting called up by Corvette Racing for COTA. This after Magnussen left the team as a fully-fledged factory driver at the end of last season in IMSA and Rockenfeller wasn't expected to run for Corvette Racing this year due to Audi Sport DTM commitments.

I think they're trying to not wear out the drivers and run separate programs for the WEC and IMSA teams at both COTA and Sebring. I'm guessing free weekend for Rocky and there was more in the background than Jan being fired. It didn't seem like he was angry about it, upset it was over but not angry.

Getting my conspiracy hat on... Ginetta sits out cota and gets no negative bop so it can be easily be faster than the others at Sebring, which pays out more points

Can you get bop changes by not running?

Dcs reporting the team was planning on chassis refeshes after interlagos, but won't have time now with cota. First time cars have been back to factory since start of season.

Well you couldn't gain more success handicap but should a skipped round count? I think it should be exactly what you would have run the round you skipped. No loss but no gain either. But I have not read the rules at all for that bit. And you could end up being the reference car that everyone is penalized against to set the success handicap.

No changes for them but potentially changes (for the worse) for their competitors.

Juntos is heading for a stewards' enquiry!

This is the Prologue of what is about to come with the new Hypercar concept.

As much as I hate to say this (trying to avoid gloom and doom), but the ACO and FIA made this bed by their go big or go home attitude with hybrid tech and EOT, and now they're reaping what they sowed. Such absurdity resulted from the usually inevitable factory implosion and shafting the privateers for years.
