I'm quite looking forward to this one. I have made sure I am at home that weekend (and that my friends/colleagues know I'll be "busy" )

37 cars overall. Not a bad number. We are at a point where we don't want grids to be too large. Mechanical reliability is not the issue it used to be. Plus more cars means more potential for safety car periods. A place like Road Atlanta has had lots of them in the past.
Thanks, I have updated the first post now.

Mazda loses two drivers to WEC and DTM Clashes, which is a shame.
The driver clashes are unfortunate, but also can give new drivers a chance to prove themselves. Or at least we get to see proven talent in different cars

Di Grassi and Franchitti are in the cars. For Di Grassi I guess it isn't that important, but for Marino he really has to impress given his lack of drives recently.

Just 45 entries would be a bit thin for Daytona.

I wouldn't mind if it was up to 40 for Road Atlanta, but this is alright. I'm definitely glad to see Risi back in there. And though it's unfortunate to see them not make it, I can't say that another Cadillac, from SoD, was something I'd especially be looking forward to. I wish someone would wave the flag for Ligier in the LMP2 ranks, but that's not happening this time. I wouldn't have minded seeing another Lambo in GTD as well, so the #48 doesn't have to go it alone. I like Turner being out there, but I hope there's an M8 GT3 in the pipeline, as that car grabs my attention rather more than the M6.

In general, I'm just hoping IMSA's adjustments help to get healthy, season-long grids in the 4 classes for 2019.

Looks like the Yac Attack has been benched by the team after Laguna and punting Tincknell after being warned in the radio he was approaching and let him pass. He's out and Will Owen and Jose Gutierrez are in the car with Saavedra. I'd forgotten how Gutierrez ended the race nose high over the tires last year.

New livery for the GTD challenger 86 to celebrate, maybe not the right word but that's what they used, Continental Tires.

Thanks, Joeb, for your work in getting the threads posted.

This one is tough. About a month ago, I had a student from Braselton sign up for our classes. When I heard that she was from Braselton, I asked if she knew Don Panoz or of him? She had moved in from out of state and knew Chateau Elan and Road Atlanta but not Don.

Three weeks ago, she came in at the start of our Saturday morning class and showed me the Braselton newspaper while saying, "Is this the Don Panoz you were talking about? He died two days ago!"

I was hit with a brick and it knocked the wind out of my sails. Here I was standing in the middle of a class about to get started and I got hit with this shock. So many stories, so much history, so much...

As tears welled in my eyes, I had to leave the classroom.

As I returned a few minutes later there is no way I could explain and simply said, "Good morning, class!"

I still have lots to say and hope I can find the time in my schedule to do so this week.

Porsche has a retro livery for their GTE cars at Petit:

Best looking retro cars yet. But the last time the 911 GT1 raced at Petit, it flew down the back straight

That was my second when looking at the livery. After the BMW did the back flip, they shaved the hill down a little bit. Took a little fun out of bike racing

One yes please more of that, and one "come here and kick this car again Deklan" for demo laps this year at Petit. Why not have a rolling Panoz pack as they did with the Abruzzi "roll-out" IMSA?

Anyone remember what the IMSA restriction is on new drivers and required night practice for Petit? Looks like any drivers who need to run at night could be in for some fun Thursday night and potentially a pontoon requiring session. For some reason I recall IMSA just requiring those who hadn't raced before or had no night practice time could not run "night laps" in the race. I'm not sure but that sticks in my mind and I couldn't find the 2018 SR referenced on the schedule.

Either way we could be in for some fun practice sessions on Thursday and sadly potentially the drives mentioned above being cancelled, from the schedule:

1:55 pm - 2:15 pm On-track historic car check (hot track)

Of course Racer has more complete information and they will be running race day, and for those of you in Europe a treat as well:

"The recently restored Panoz GTR-1, chassis #7 that raced at Le Mans in 1998 (pictured below) and is scheduled to race in the Le Mans Historic Masters in 2019, will run a pre-race lap alongside the “Stars and Stripes” DeltaWing Coupe DWC13-003 (pictured, top). The GTR-1 will be driven by Jan Magnussen, while Johnny O’Connell will be behind the wheel of the DeltaWing."
