I think it's just a case of not as many want to watch GT cars only.

Was funny, Ford shouting about how this is an overall win. Yeah...I suppose it is. Kinda.

I wonder if IMSA is just plain losing the fanbase ... if the series can no longer inspire and excite people with their product?
For most of the US based fans, it's mid-summer and hard to get even 5 people together. It's a hard time for all sports and feels like it's just a tough event to sell and all of the US sportscar area has been quiet for a while now. Even the WC event had mainly race report posting

Was it not? They were the first car across the line so they won overall I guess you can look back at other GT only IMSA races to see if the winners bragged the same. Kinda 'cheap talk' by Ford but it's still true.

It is true, but it's not like Porsche at Petit. I think it was actually one of the drivers, rather than Ford to be completely fair. It just made me chuckle.

"We won overall! Because the fastest class isn't allowed in this race!"

Sportscar Racing: where the the historic ledger of results for each race, each season, is loaded with asterisks, footnotes and whatever to clarify that a win in a particular race was not as impactful as a win in another race, and of course this era of prototypes is not the same as that of other eras, and the same with GTs, and yada yada.

Oh well, it is all fun

Obviously, no apologies required.

This our site, and all of us are responsible for what we share here.

People who want a race thread and have the time and energy should create one---it is no one person's responsibility.

Couple thoughts going on right now.

1. VIR entry list is posted on IMSA web site. No Risi Ferrari at VIR. This is very upsetting. In 2017 its when they came back from a sabbatical. We'll be lucky if they come back Petit Le Mans now.

2. Very rare I am interested in a full season points championship. But this year the prototype one is interesting. We should all be cheering for CORE to pull it off.

3. The last 5 all-GT races has had 1 or 0 full course yellows. And the ones that did have a yellow in it was either during the first 10 minutes or the last 10 minutes. Hope that streak extends to 6 with the VIR race.

4. Which Porsche team will show up this year at the VIR race. The one that dominated in 2015? Or gave the worst performance for the 911 RSR gave in 2017.

5. Too bad CORE did not show up as a guest in the GT3 Porsche for the all GT races.
