(We were told repeatedly last year that a Nissan DPi wasn't happening, regardless of what S365 et al were suggesting)

The good thing is that if Joest and Penske come to DPI added to the Cadillacs, we will finally have a fight for the over all victory.
These teams come to win.

The #22 ESM with Derani & JVO should push the Caddys pretty hard from here on out

Okay, seriously? Drop the attitude already. So I missed something. Big freaking whoop. Nobody can catch everything. I never said or implied it was any kind of conspiracy, I asked for the source because I hadn't heard anything.

No, Acura and Toyota are not the only factories supporting teams in GTD. Ferrari and Porsche do so as well. Come to your own conclusions about why IMSA doesn't do anything about Ferrari and Porsche, I won't make assumptions.

But the simple reality of the matter is that there's only so much IMSA can do. If a factory wants to support a team, they'll find a way - just as Ferrari and Porsche have. Just like GM and Ford did in Conti.

When he's reporting on general occurrences? Sure. He's rather good at that.

But he is developing an increasingly strong reputation for taking comments about a manufacturer being "interested" and playing it up like a program is in the works. If he were to be believed, every manufacturer in GTLM and GTD is working on a DPi!

Until he comprehends that a manufacturer showing interest/evaluating a program means effectively nothing, he will continue to gain a poor reputation.

BTW, he did it again today: http://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/fo...nterest-grows/

Well highlighted.

Ford “Keeping an Eye” on DPi as Global Interest Grows
Quote:
“We’ll always keep an eye on it, for if and when it makes sense,” Pericak told Sportscar365. “But right now there’s not a plan to get into it.

“Right now the DPi, for us, is not relevant, and there’s nothing we would want to leverage it for. In the future, if we want to leverage it, then we will.
Whilst technically correct, the headline reads very very differently to the content.

I'm basically self advertising at this point, but watch this space for the coming months for a new sportscar news website.

Ferrari, Porsche, AMG, and Audi are customer supported programs.

Lexus and Acura are currently de facto factory programs being run through a satellite team.

Look at how many programs, before SC365 and in the days of Racer Magazine being a monthly print mag (instead of by monthly now and mostly being a web mag now) and DSC's early days, were promised but never saw the light of day. Like the Lexus GT2 sports sedan program, CET Solari RS Spyder, et al.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch. All we on the outside looking in can do is gather evidence and see where it takes us.

Just like Porsche leaving LMP1 isn't a done deal yet. But sources, especially within Germany (Motorsport Akutell/Auto Motor und Sport and Motorsport Total) are saying that it's possible, and they do seem to have info that we're obviously not privy to.

Because Porsche is NOT paying teams to run the 911 GTD car and Ferrari is NOT paying teams to run the 488 either. Lexus and Acura are footing the bill for both of those teams to race and they have both said that. It's not a conspiracy, it's listening to the words out of the horse's mouth. I take what they (IMSA) say with a grain of salt, and they change their mind quickly, but if either of the Acura or Lexus programs continue as they are now I'd expect the GTD teams to protest or leave. Getting factory shoes to help out a team with true Silver/AM drivers is VERY different than CASH to fund the team.

As for the attitude, it comes from those who pontificate, preach or other denigrate others' comments when they have actually read something. Then claims come in about hidden and mysterious sources that are wrong WAY more often than right. The fact that you preach insider knowledge and then have NOTHING accurate to share is the root of the dismissive tone to my replies to your posts.
