I was really surprised when there was no penalty for pushing off the proton. Sure each of the Corvettes had received previous contact from it, but the last shove by Corvette coming out of oak tree with the proton playing stadium truck seemed a bit much. Proton passes happened with everyone staying on track.

Oh well. Roll on petit with final bmw and gtlm class appearances

Just one of these days, with the race director swallowing his whistle, a driver will take matters into their own hands. I was a little surprised the Porsche driver didn't just decide to take out both the Corvettes and win the race, because now that's the sort of driving that's IMSA encourages.

Think of this moment next time you preach BS about IMSA's unwavering commitment to safety trying to justify their ridiculous FCY procedures.

Has nothing to do with safety, REPEAT AFTER ME, it's 100% insurance requirements of on track assistance/recovery

It’s still standard procedure, that they don’t know any different. That’s probably more the reason

Betcha Petit Le Mans GTLM could end up just like Sebring. R.L.L BMW vs Corvette vs Weathertech battles have been very intense so far this year. Its been a while so its easy to forget. GTLM at Road Atlanta will be a race to remember I"m sure. The R.L.L. team have not won yet this year but they have "brought it" for sure.

Funny that my sentiments for Corvette changes from race to race depdending where they are. I was cheering for them hard at Le Mans 24H, but in IMSA I have been cheering for R.L.L and Weathertech.

I think it’s unlikely the form book will be different, BMW are still going strong and so are their main rivals. The series may be going through tough times, but there is still enough to get excited about. I just hope the PLM lives up to it’s billing. I am sure we will be entertained no matter what.

Certainly the GTLM will be the class to watch, but hopefully the other class will be good enough. It’s what the series deserves

Now that’s an interesting prospect. I’m sure the McLaren can do well, but it will be against a lot of tough opposition

I was just coming to this thread to post that!

I think that will be a fan favorite. We haven't seen much McLaren action in the IMSA GT3 class. I know compass ran some, but it will be nice to have some a new car to look at!

Yeah, it's been limited to Sprint Cup only previously. Just been a few GT4s

So, does this mean that McLaren upped their manufacturer fee investment from sprint cup only to the big show? Did I miss that?

That's a good looking car.

As for the fee, are there different levels? I kinda assumed it was the same dollar amount matter the class.

They did offer a lower price a couple years ago for Sprint only but that appeared to be a that year thing. But it's IMSA and they don't tell us nothing so. Maybe single race entry does not require such payment but we peons aren't important enough to know

Obviously the costs have got high, so something needs to be done. The series isn’t in great shape as it is

Looks like Winward will be bringing their GT3 car to Petit and dropping the GT4 car.
