The Riley looks absolutely undrivable. Every time you see it, it's oversteering, understeering and not steering.

They are running without the updates which should help that.

The P3 teams may have wanted it, but I strongly doubt the MPC teams wanted to be kicked to the curb. Most of them do not have the money to run an LMP3, after all. Even if P3 gets a car count boost next year, I don't see this being an overall positive move for the series.

As for safety issues... If the Conti series can manage being a two-class series, no reason PC can't.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but the exact same argument was made for the PC class staying. That turned out to not be an issue.

The difference here, though, is that the PC class was being replaced. Teams that couldn't afford a P2 had a new place to go to, even if they did still have to buy new cars for it.

This is literally just knocking a class completely out of the IMSA hierarchy. Teams that want to run cheap prototypes but can't afford a P3(which, frankly, barely counts as a "cheap" prototype) literally have no option within IMSA anymore. And there are very few options for them outside of IMSA - unless you have a Radical, the only option outside of club racing are a couple of small regional championships.

And let's be honest... Look at the field size of each class. LMP3 does not need a boost to it's car count, and MPC was not struggling for sufficient entries. (not for a two-class series, at least)

Kartracer88f should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The car is actually coming a long way. I'm one of the drivers of the Riley, and after the pit stops we were consistently the quickest car on track until I got hit by Cassels which damaged the diffuser rather badly (missed setup before that a bit). I've coached in the Ligier last year, and the cars are different. The Riley is close, but needs development from having a pro level driver in the car. We'll be there pretty darn soon

How was the car to drive? It was fast but looked more difficult to extract the speed from than the Norma and Ligier.

The LMP3 looks miles better than last year for sure. The LMP2 looks still stuck at the back of the grid unfortunately.

In some ways it's easier. The loss of grip is more progressive than the ligier, which is why you see us move around more, you can without it killing you. We're def a lower drag car (at Daytona we were more trimmed out than anyone) so high speed is a bit tough. There's still some work to be done to get the front working how I want in really slow corners, but it seems achievable. I feel the setup window is wider for the car, but right now the optimum pace isn't quite as quick on twisty circuits. With very little pro time in the car I feel we have more dev room.

Daytona we were MUCH quicker than all the ligiers at the test, but 3 days before the race the ACO told IMSA the ligier was allowed to lose 11 mm of wicker for Daytona only, and can revert back for other rounds, where we have to run the same package year long, so there's a bit of a struggle there.

This car would be allow in Prototype Challenge.

2020 LMP3 constructors confirmed

No Dome or Ave-Riley, which is hardly a surprise. I wonder if Ginetta and Adess will do any work on their cars.

How would it be in PC? I thought they used the LMP3 rules as the base for the top tier before the Lites cars are retired and it's just LMP3 cars
