Yes, all IMSA races are streamed live outside the US on IMSA.tv. If it doesn't work, try a different browser. It works for me on Chrome.

Odds on at least one Porsche magically gaining 1.5 seconds? Wonder if the telemetry showed they weren't using every rev or what IMSA saw? They generally aren't terrible with it outside of the occasional slight but almost 3 seconds as a group seems like something is off

These aren't the type of notes we usually get from the paddock, but Graham has some good gossip:

There are several LMP2 Oreca 07s here that are with at least their second owners. At least one is understood to have been received by its new team with several aspects of the car understood to have been significantly out of compliance with the regulations, the presumption being that its previous owners raced the car in that state!

You’d think they’d return it to a compliant state before selling. Not so much to cover anything up, but more so people get what they paid for!

Makes you wonder about both the team and the series. And what was out of compliance, cause we know holes in the bodywork to slam the starter with a hammer are NOT ok

Is this in reference to the Proton car? I vaguely remember reading something about it but cannot recall where & when.

I don't know which team it could be.


Endurance Info has some good facts and figures about the race:

And I added the Andy Blackmore Guide to the opening post.

Thanks Joeb!

Some really neat videos have come out recently. Marshall Pruett and Racer Magazine posted a paddock walk interview with IMSA president John Doonan, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr66BZp3Xec&t=3s

There's a whole raft of great tech videos from Racer talking about the MGU systems in the new GTPs, sound comparisons, an explanation on the ESS and alot more. Definitely check them out on the Racer youtube channel.

He also posted his interview with Kat Legge and Sheena Monk, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNhkLoceUDE

And Acura/HPD have released a 50 minute documentary about their road to GTP, awesome, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCcb7is2CJI

Also, figured I'd share this guy's video previewing the race since he's a cool canadian and has been putting alot of effort into his IMSA videos, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2uSXDoK4MI

Enjoy guys and gals!

I have only watched the first few mintues so far and will watch it all later - however I like how they just do not mention and skip over the ARX-04

Would there be a simple schedule / timetable without all the non-racing carp but with adjustment for UK or European time please?
In true US style I cannot make head nor tail of the official sites.

Not sure what's challenging about the timetable on IMSA

Bottom of the page is a simple chart of series and time they're on track each day
