So, was the BMW penalised for the Lexus contact?

911 blew an engine. And #67 need to complete half distance (I thought it was 3.4 but i guess not) in order to be scored ....

Good work by the crew to pick up the extra point. 7th is 24 points vs 23 for 8th.

Could make a difference, but that depends on how the Corvette does today.

Not sure why the commentators are debating if there was a touch or not. Andy Lally just thumped the Mercedes. That's not a question.

Are Hindhaugh and Shaw looking at different footage? That was clearly Lally's fault.

So the only FCY was the #91 Porsche stalling on track due to engine failure? Say what? Since when does a Porsche 911 RSR engine fail?????

I'm glad I'm not the only one there, the guys on FS2 basically called it a revenge punt for pushing his way past. If you can't defend then punting the guy who passed you WITHOUT contact is not ok. Personally think they should be parked not a stop-go, but that's more of a long term try to cut down on this driving strategy than penalty for that driving. But it's tough on the team for that level of penalty but I think something needs to be done before someone gets punted at a bad corner and things go sideways.

Revenge punt? From the Road America last lap crash?

Need to be watching Legge. She's closing on the leader. She's making time as much as the 93 is losing time.

Ditto for Long - he's now only a second behind Legge, who is ~1.5s away from Baumann.

Best day BMW has had in IMSA with the M8 so far. Right after the car was horrific at Silverstone.

That tightened up nicely at the end. Simms measures it out in GTLM; Baumann holds on in GTD.

For daring to push past in the same corner, they felt Lally looked at his pass as too aggressive and so spun him for daring to be so forward.



Damn, think Legge burned up her tires trying to make the pass and it cost her with Long right there and he squeezed past her. That contact is tough but wasn't unfair or an attempt to muscle through. And I don't think either driver would begrudge the other for the attempt, she was on the losing end that time.

Great finish in gtd, would have liked to see Legge get maximum points there to tighten up the championship even further, but Long had the speed at the end.
