Danathar should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I really wish the DPi's could be made a Little faster. Mind you it does not have to be the speed of the LMP1 cars, but within a couple of seconds would be nicer. The time difference as they stand now makes IMSA's prototypes look down right slow.

This is an ongoing conversation point here. But since they aren't on track with the LMP1 cars, do they really look slow?

Also, they have had 1 practice session, they will likely improve laptimes. Plus they are P2 based cars so that should be the comparison, not vs P1.

If they left lmp2 alone, it'd be just as fast as the 'sped up' DPi. When they separated the two, I thought they'd make DPi a good bit faster than what lmp2 is actually capable of. But when you look at the wec's lmp2 times it seems kind of like their reasoning behind separating the two wasn't because lap times or DPi's being 'held back'. Interesting to see GTLM is quicker than GTE but that's probably the BOP differences.

Practice starts out with a red flag. But still got time to go. I expect times to drop vs first session, but we'll see how much. I'm going out on a limb and saying Caddy will be fastest

Very weird how the radio on both IMSA.com and RLM are synced but do not coincide with the on track action. RLM is correct on RS3 for the WEC sessions?

Final practice ends with both Acura's topping the timesheet in DPi, and an Acura tops in GTD as well. Porsche maintained control in GTLM but the times are sure to fall in 30 minutes when qualifying starts.

I think a low 1:46 will take pole overall, and a low 1:56 in GTLM

I was thinking real quick why the the GTD pole is slower than in 2018 with the Michellen tires but then I realized that silver/ bronze drivers have to qualify this year.

Looks like IMSA has done a good job of keeping out sneaky silvers this year.

Thought times would be faster than they were, but not terribly surprising. I know ams had to qualify gtd, were the pros allowed to qualify last year?

Question answered, thanks MR.

Potentially of note, Trent's Acura did go faster than that car's time last year.
