Not gonna lie... I think adding some nifty aero bits to the DPs might do something for their looks.

I wonder if that's the Spirit of Daytona car sharing Roebling Road with the DW yesterday and today?

I have to say I was so excited when the series was announced. After seeing that entry list and talking to Rob Dyson this past weekend I don't even care anymore. How can Dyson racing not be a part of this? I was so excited and now I'm so bummed.

According to GA's testing list it is: http://www.grand-am.com/Portals/0/Im...ting201346.pdf

Run by Marsh racing, though.

Realistically USCR won't be very different than ALMS unless management USCR goes Waaayy overboard with race-to-race BoP to keep DPs competitive.

(I don't care which class wins, btw, so long as one class isn't crippled to allow another to win, and then a switchback, and all that.)

The P2s will be there, and if the DPs are too, that's fine; either than can match the pace or lose. GTE will be there, and GTC will be improved (IMO) by changing to GTD---more variety, something most of us have wanted all along.

We'll see if fan access (open paddocks, grid walks) remain, and I am Not happy about losing both TV and streaming for the races, but otherwise ...

Sure, losing a couple of the top teams (Dyson hasn't been lately, but that have been there since before forever) would really suck.

I hadn't heard that Dyson was dropping out, though ... only that they were easing up in 2013 to focus on the future.

Oh. I am. I don't hate the guy, I think he does an okay job....he just reminds me of a 4 year old who is constantly in your face so you pay attention to them. If he didn't exist, I don't think life would be drastically different...but...for those of you who enjoy his stuff. Good for you, I just find him annoying.

I talked to Rob Dyson, Chris Dyson and James Weaver this past weekend and all three said the same thing. There are no plans to run the current car next year. They have not been told yet by IMSA what changes would be needed. I asked about moving to P2 and both Rob and Chris said that's an option but neither sounded like that was the direction they were heading. It really seemed to me that they were preparing everyone for no Dyson car next year. All three said almost the exact same thing (rehearsed?), " It's going to be a shame next year without us on the grid. We feel we've contributed a lot to the paddock and the series."

I have to believe at this point we won't see Dyson in the series next year.

Once again, there goes a competitor due to the lack of regs...my faith is waning quickly....maybe Hindy could come here and rant about how we need to pay attention to this because there is no other option...

He still has a point IMO as frustrating as everything is. We can't really do anything to help the situation. The fans can sure as hell make themselves yet another problem for the series.

At least the bickering, for the most part, has stopped. But I still maintain the hardest part to merge is the two groups of fans.

Because he corrected you on Twitter?

Feel free to do a better job than he does. I'll start holding my breath soon.
