Juntos should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

Perhaps you don't need that much beer. ACO is specialist in creating classes and sub-classes.

As much as I take the mick out of the ACO, I think that's a bit unfair. SRO Manages to have Pro, Pro-Am, Am, Silver and more out of just GT3. If your car doesn't fit into a class, then Creventic will make a new class just for you. And VLN more classes than we have forum members. IMSA just split up the Prototype class and managed to mess up the LMP2 class because Bop and stuff and reasons and lap times. Back in the ALMS days they added one-make classes to try and bump up.

ACO isn't alone in this. And I wouldn't even say this is a modern thing either - I think we had an unusual level of stability in ACO racing with the LMP1/LMP2/Pro/Am, where as before classes were inserted and removed all the time.

ByKolles is not in a sub-class. It's racing against Toyota, Rebellion, SMP and DragonSpeed.

Well, Akrapovic went and gave a serious and thoughtful response, and all I am capable of is a mocking 'would it be called the Beer Goggles class' response...

Without trying to drive the conversation to another place, let me remind you that to be "racing against" someone, you need to show up on the grid in the first place. Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in our lives for something new to emerge. Perhaps they are not showing up in Sebring cause they are not able to "race against" some of their competitors.

Because they don't have an engine. They can't just switch to Gibson and throw it in the back of the car. It needs mounting and all the work required to make it fit. Then the gearbox needs to be adjusted etc. It looks like a job that takes too long to make Sebring, sadly. That doesn't mean they will never race again. For all the crap we give them, they are a more reliable entry than others in the class (Ginetta).

Missing a race for an engine change, and not showing up for a race are not the same thing.

Correct. For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written.



Let's see what is the next excuse. The super-season is not yet over.

I was thinking more a good long deep pull on something leafy and green before you try helps it make more sense
