Well if it can be done its Auto racing. I predict that of all sports, racing will be the first to have fans again. IMSA maybe before anybody. Good podcast from S365 came out today talking about this stuff. Plus the logistical travel issues foreign drivers are facing. I guess the most impacted of all the teams right is going to be CORE/Porsche

I agree with you there. We have got the means to get it back. IMSA will be back. Interesting podcasts indeed, it can happen and they will help drivers get here via whatever means. Of course it might be a struggle for some teams, but we should have enough for a grid of cars

Corvette Racing crew chief Dan Binks announced his retirement today. 2020 Daytona 24 will be (was) his last race.

I watched the Vette team unload the C7R the last time at PLM and Road Atlanta. I guess that was Dan's last race with the team there. (Dan left middle in photo)

Enjoy the next journey, Dan!

Always good to see the guys do their work in the paddock. Probably that was it from him. I hope he enjoys whatever he does next, it'll be hard to follow what he's done

Sounds like Binks is moving on to running his own local tuning and car building shop. So a car guy's retirement

Heís basically taking a step down from his previous job, like mechanics do when they leave motorsport. A lot of them have gone on to work or run a local garage

I'm sure the travel is what eventually wears you out.

Porsche has pulled the plug on its gtlm program. Not sure where this leaves the future of the class.

Oh wow...its happened. That's stinks big time. Yeah I guess moving to GTD pro and GTD Am is possible with the C8R and M8 being grandfathered and BoP'd in if they stick around.

I also wonder if it is possible to take GT4 and make it a GT4+, such as bigger rear wings, more horsepower. They lap Daytona at 1 min 54 roughly. Perhaps they can get them boosted so that they could run 1:49 perhaps.

Yeah I feel like GTD Pro and Am makes the most sense from my armchair.

BMW would use the M4 GT3 instead of grandfathering the M8. Until the M4 comes out, they have the M6 GT3 car. It would be easier to continue bop'ing the M6 rather than adapt the M8 to GT3 rules.

The big wrench is what Corvette does if they stand by their stated commitment to Le Mans. Race GTE in WEC? Any conversion to GTD, then run GTD all year long then whip out the GTE for Le Mans?

Or will IMSA work like mad to get more GTLM entrants and keep the class alive? Or do nothing and provide the single team playground class for Corvette?

I think we are witnessing the death of the GTLM/GTE classes.

The future is customer/privateer racing with factory support at major races.

5 seconds a lap is probably asking a lot. Maybe not so much for the Macca or the Audi, but definitely for the more touringcar-ish cars like the BMW.

IMSA needs a GT pro class (no bronze drivers), and a GT am class (with one bronze driver).
