DETROIT GRAND PRIX 2018

There is qualifying about to start and the race is tomorrow. I know there isn't much interest in this round given the test day this weekend, but it is the only IMSA race of the year featuring Protos and GTD.

Looks like a tight battle during practice between the Caddy, Acura, and Nissan teams.

In Detroit a Caddy win is expectable!

Mazda was in there on the time sheets as well.

Already, the Prototypes are more than a second under the previous lap racord, and GTD is close to a second under theirs.

The 2.35-mile, 14-turn, Belle Isle parkland circuit is about as quick as Laguna Seca on average speed.

And I wonder if the pick-up in speeds we've seen already is partly a result of surface improvement. Yes, it's still quite bumpy, but I think a good portion of that, especially when compared to the old CART days, is that much more of the course seems to be paved in concrete rather than asphalt.

It's qualifying time!

I'm getting the video stream quite nicely right now but no sound.

Qualifying delayed a few minutes while track is getting cleaned up after a crash in the Porsche race.
Magnus won't be qualifying due to an engine failure.

Nothing like IMSA timing and scoring, it's over, no wait, more time, no wait curfew, it's over.

And what's the penalty for hitting a car on track in qualifying? Think Montoya spun Derani a bit there at the end. Pipo is crushing it, .5 sec faster than everyone else like a switch

Drama in proto qualifying, Alon pits the bananaboat in the wall and then some teams didn't follow proper red flag proceedures. But Derani puts it on pole! Looks good for ESM tomorrow.

What a mess ...

But I think everyone ended up pretty much where they belong.

A couple quick laps from the P2s too.

I think it was sharp in the same that got hit. Looks like rain is coming to Belle Isle this evening.

Yeah, they (picture and audio) were keeping up with the action like it was their first time. And I'm watching on the phone so not exactly giant picture

There's a new leader up front ... but we know you would rather have seen the middle of the GTD pack.
