A course that has a reputation for being a "driver's course"---very challenging, needs perfect rhythm, not a lot of easy overtaking spots. Could be major carnage due to impatience, or a near-parade.

All LMP2/DPi stuff put aside for the weekend---I am eager to see those big Cadillacs booming down those short straights. And I am eager to see which drivers manage the course best. I have hopes for Helio on this one.

Oh, and what's the odds? Mazda in flames, or electrical failure, or cooling problems? is there a book yet?

I hear Mazda's new logo is a broken heart.

I don't care if it'll be a parade or not (I'm confident it won't), it's a proper old school type road course, best schedule move (venue wise) in a long time!

Looking forward to the race very much - wish I could have been able to get over there but alas.

I put on my tinfoil hat to note that the Acura's are quickest at their home track....

And there are multiple GTD cars in the midst of the GTLM's.

Also Trummer 4th overall in the JDC Oreca

If it rains for FP2, I wonder what they might learn for Sunday given that right not it's forecast to rain.

I noticed that too. That'd be cool to see if it stays that way but I somehow doubt it.

Yeah, I expect the GTLMs to pick it up, once they get some more dry running. Especially at a track like this, I should think the new cars will be quicker than the 2012 GTEs, and they haven't crossed that threshold yet with the FP1 times.

Ah, Continental. Why have you never actually bothered trying to make a rain tyre?

I do wonder if Continental did say screw this, Michelin will be in next season. Also, there's rain forecast for Sunday as of the last time I checked.

Huh? The GTDs on Contis are right there with the Michelin-shod GTLMs!

I think he's meaning the GTLM cars being well into the Prototype field.
