WolfsburgRS should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Something that was brought up on Motorsport.com was that Conti was pretty flexible with CSTCC teams selling off lightly used tires online. This was a great way to pick up cheap / decent track tires for HPDE events. It'll be bummer if this comes to an end.

I am worried about tire prices going up in 2019 for the race teams. I hope IMSA is aware of this.

You hope Imsa is aware of your concern?

Or you hope they have simply looked up what Europe teams are currently paying for tires? It's not exactly hard to determine...

Michelin has been working on/towards the 'deal' since the merger.

I wonder if Conti knew that Michelin had been planning this for 40 months!

And I love Marshall Pruett interviews. He asked if he could just wear a white T-shirt to audition for Bib. Lol.

S365 has a a very interesting interview with Scott Atherton on the decision to switch to Michelin in 2019.

Quote:
Atherton admitted its deal with Michelin doesn’t exclude IMSA from opening up other classes to tire competition in the future, although it’s not in the plan for the short-term.

“It’s not something we are prepared to embrace now,” he said. “But I would say the potential for it to evolve is there [in the current contract].

“There’s nothing that would prevent it but right now that’s not the vision.”

Should it happen, Atherton said he would see the Prototype class, which could see a convergence with new-generation ACO LMP1 regulations in 2020, being the most likely possibility.
The full story is available here.

We didn't Nascar-ize sports-car racing. Instead, we helped the series thrive by giving it sustainability and access to resources it had never had.
I admit it's true.

IMSA has enjoyed a resurgence in viewers

Under its TV deal with Fox Sports, ratings are up dramatically
I don't think so

Well, costs are escalating.

de Chaunac seems to think we will have 2 (at least via Oreca) new DPis in '19.
