Chassis quality hasn't been crucial to RWR's business model thus far, so I'm not sure why it would matter now...

Exactly. Would think car and spares are probably priced lower, which would equate to being able to offer seats at a somewhat lower rate (still have the overhead of facilities, crew, transport).

With the field growing in P2, how will the media coverage change, or will it?

Wasn't BAR1 selling the chassis at 200k or something by spring 2018, the price must have been quite low by the time they were actually purchased

The 86 MSR car gets 3rd and 4th drivers today, Jules Gounon in for Daytona and Shinya Michimi for the enduro rounds, stepping up from US Super Trofeo and SuperGT.

Another Aston Martin for Daytona, Dalla Lana with factory AMR team in GTD for Daytona only. He's running with I think the usual cast of characters, Ross Gunn, Mathias Lauda and Pedro Lamy. It sounds like a Daytona only program without any thought to further IMSA rounds.

Remember that the Riley/Multimatic received all the Mazda updates (new rear suspension and bellhousing) after the debut year when the car got the podium. When BAR1 made the race with the updated car they did almost no practice with the car. It was fitted with the Continentals that year.

So, the car should be a bit better than in 2017, but the team have to know the car. On the other side, the Orecas have made million of miles of testing and races with tons of data.

Rick Ware should try to get all the possible data from Mazda team about the Michelin tires throught Multimatic if they want to be near the Orecas.

Gtd could a Nice size grid for daytona. Maybe 20 cars?

Entry list has come before Christmas in past but also after as well. I will guess it will be 42 cars overall.

Well it is a Mazda and those are his engines so why wouldn't he want to race it? Dyson possibly eyeing a privateer Mazda DPi?
