OK.

We’ve had enough. It is getting in the way. It’s boring and it makes us boring people.

Many people like the old days. But liking them, or whatever you think about current series, should not get in the way of talking about today.

But not in every thread and repetitively and all the time.

There is plenty of space in the 10-10ths house, let’s not paint the walls of every room the same color.

Let’s get back on topic, this series still has enough going for it

It’s going through a tough time atm, but then after the racing and the size of the field the past few years, it can still can get back on track. The chanpionship hasn’t been too bad this season, even with teams struggling with budget. Let’s hope it survives, although there are uncertain times ahead

I like IMSA for the cars and the circuits they race on and it’s a shame to see it struggling a bit atm. I am hoping the series will still survive, even if we don’t quite go back to how it was prior to this season

This is true for sure. GTD has been good by the way. The Lexus guys actually had a tough last 2 races. Quietly I think the Wright Motorsports Porsche is in contention for the season long championship.

That is great to see! I guess we don't have travel restrictions in place, so shouldn't be any issues getting from the elms weekend to petit.

Any team that is NOT in a season championship fight in some way I can't blame one bit if they decide to skip Laguna Seca race. Would not surprise me to see a few. Porsche GT, GRT Magnus teams for example. Maybe or maybe not. Just a random thought.

I think you might be right, already teams are struggling, hopefully we can get enough cars in for a good race at Laguna, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a few drop out. We'll see, those who are on a tight budget and have nothing to fight for might just pull out now to save on bills. Either way Laguna should be a great race, always a great track where action happens

Well Laguna is in a category of tracks like Lime Rock and Long Beach where you can have smaller grids and be good still. So anybody on a tight budget are probably thinking about it now or made a decision already.

Well one TCR car has already decided just that. JDC-Miller Audi has withdrawn from the rest of the season given the travel out west and having already run at Road Atlanta and Sebring this year.

IMSA web site has Laguna Seca entry list. DPI, GTLM, and GTD same as usual. Only #52 Oreca for LMP2. A 3 class race effectively which is fine by me. Hope it is a safety car free one. Have had one of those in a while. The driving standards this year have not been as good as it was in 2019. This year has seen more crashes that have been quite avoidable.

The InterEuropol car will be back at Sebring and has hired the recently crowned Imsa Lites champions Rao and Bell! That is a fantastic thing for the team to do, give the junior class guys a chance to step up. Not sure if either of the drivers has raced a P2 before, and Sebring will be a baptism by fire I have a feeling, but classy move nonetheless.

Remember Guy Cosmo, considered an up and coming driver when in 2013 he left a solid ride with Extreme Speed for a bigger pay check with Level 5. And well we know what happened to Level 5 less than a year later..(ahem jail bird Scott Tucker)...been a journeyman driver ever since. Guy Cosmo I think hurt his long term career to get the quick buck back in the day.
