IMSA 2018 year in review

So much talk about the future. Hope this thread can focus on the events that occurred during the 2018 season.

Best race: Virginia International Raceway

Best cars:
1) Prototype: Oreca 07
2) GTLM: Ford GT
3) GTD: Lamborghini

Best drivers:
1) Prototype: Colin Braun
2) GTLM: Dirk Mueller
3) GTD: Alvardo Parente

Biggest underachievers: Acura Team Penske

Dumbest move: tie- Gainsco car hitting Action Express Caddy at start of Laguna Seca race triggering chain reaction crash
Yacaman/Mazda collision also at Laguna Seca

Best liveries: Porsche GT Team (traditional), Paul Miller Lambo (black/green trim at Road Atlanta)

Worst liveries: Shank Acura (just too much going on), BMW M8 black (just does not work this time, prefer to have 2 whites and match their WEC counterpart)

Won't be missed: Continental (punctures galore at Daytona and Road Atlanta), Gustavo Yacaman (please don't come back to IMSA....ever)

Will be greatly missed: Don Panoz

-The TV coverage on IMSA's in-house broadcast (not FOX), took a step down this year. TV director's shots and decisions were poor. Not enough
coverage of the GT racing. Prototype got a very disproportionate amount of the coverage. I think Prototype, GTLM, and GTD should get equal time
at every race.

If you think the best race was the Petit Le Mans I understand completely. Just thought it had too many cautions still at certain points.

If there's LMP2 entries next year, it will be worse.

I had some very personal "challenges" this year that compounded other portions of my hectic life and watched very little racing overall this year.

I was just happy to watch just about every minute of PLM by a fence, under a water oak, on a hill or in the T10 complex. It meant a lot to me this time.
