Acura9403.5T7050none76

IMSA P29404.28250none70
WEC P29304.2?None75
If the weights are correct, why is there any reason the IMSA P2 weight is 10 kgs heavier than the WEC one, if not to make a P2 harder to beat a Caddilac?

It is 100% to make it harder for a P2 to beat any DPi. Not in a malicious way, but weight was part of creating a small separation in performance between DPi (manufacturer dollars, prestige, eyeballs) and standard P2 cars (gentlemen drivers).

While IMSA's 2020 calendar hasn't been announced yet, the date when Sebring should be held is pretty much set: — the traditional date for the 12 Hours of Sebring is the third Saturday in March (March 21 in 2020). Sebring International Raceway usually starts promoting the next year's event (with dates) even before the IMSA schedule comes out.

I suspect this is just the WEC wanting to make sure the event works in 2019 before completely committing in 2020. I would also agree that a combined race weekend at Sebring isn't the long term solution.

Night qualifying threw a wrench in some teams times I believe for the WEC. Can't wait for the race, traffic will definitely play a part.

I'm pretty excited! Finally we have proper prototypes back at Sebring... it's been way too long. The night onboards were amazing

Freitas won't have to bother with track limits for once either lol

They're saying it might rain at some point

I just wish the ACO had saved the continuing horrendous future prototype updates for tomorrow, I really didn't want my enthusiasm ripped for tonight as I've been looking forward to this event for so long

I hope it's not a Toyota run away. As much as I'm a fan of them, I want them to have real competition from other teams.

They will disappear to the distance, but perhaps at least one of them crumbles along the way? Maybe to the traffic as they can't really pass the cars off track here, and the road is much narrower

Judging by the SC365 notebooks they are also bit more conservative still, thanks to the bumps and memories of Silverstone DSQ

It'll be a Toyota runaway on pace for sure. Reliability is the only possible spanner in the works.

Dark Sky says 17-20% chance of rain in 3-4 hours for 2 hours.

Gap to Toyota at 7 seconds lol. Maybe traffic will come into play but at least there's already passing by other lmp1s.
