Yes, that's running back to them.
No, that's not. Running back to the privateers would have been hastily creating entirely new rules to ensure their participation, not adapting the current balance of performance - at the request of Toyota.

All the ACO did was adapt to how the situation changed. Which is exactly with the separate hybrid and non-hybrid P1 rules were created to allow for.

Ignored when they were rolling in Audi and Nissan money, and then made sure they could be competitive once the big teams left. I never said the Porsche announcement was the tipping point.
The ACO didn't "ignore" the privateers - the rules were there for them to build the cars all along. The ACO "do" anything to make them competitive. The rules for the privateer LMP1s are the same this year as they were last year. Most of the programs were already in the works before Porsche left.

The timing just happened to work out well.

"The rules are the same, except the BoP". It's the same, except how they're applied. Very good.

You keep talking about Porsche and how projects were in the works, as if I've implied that the sudden change of direction from the ACO was in reaction to Porsche. I didn't say that.

If you want to continue that, there's an ACO forum for it. This is the IMSA forum, and IMSA shouldn't change anything just because the WEC is sucking up to one person and disregarding everybody else. Again.

You missed the point. The ACO wasn't going to change anything until TOYOTA asked them to.

You did imply it with your repeated claims that the manufacturer situation has caused the ACO to go "running back" to the privateer teams. There was no cause for concern when only Audi had left, after all.

While we may have been dragging this a bit far, since it's all directly related to the matter that's causing some issues for IMSA, I wouldn't call this being too far off-topic. But if you're really worried about it, I'll be glad to make this my last reply. You can make one last response if you wish and we'll move on.

The ACO isn't sucking up to one person. They're sucking up to a PROMOTER. Ignore the promoters, and you'll lose them. Without promoters the series has to promote events themselves, which costs them more money, which makes it harder to survive.

This should also make it easier for non US based P2 teams to come over and make guest appearances in IMSA*

* provided the blue blazer scheduling department in Paris is on their A-game.

I wonder how imsa will decide which teams will do the testing for Michelin? The Daytona testing seems like it will be the most important.

Change is coming to GTD in 2019, though exactly what that means is still being figured out:

Quote:
IMSA President Scott Atherton says to expect “material change” to the GT Daytona class next year, in a concerted effort to reduce costs for competitors.

The GT3-based category, which has seen an influx of manufacturer support in recent years, has been hit with skyrocketing budgets, largely triggered by the increased professionalism in the Pro-Am-enforced platform.
