Tommy Milner doesn't need to be asked twice. Fords were fighting each other and Milner took both.

Hey Westbrook, remember you are fighting the yellow cars and that blue/white/red thing is your teammate.

great manouvre mate, that's 5-6 instead of 3-4.

In saying that, one was a move, the other was contact. So it's not that simple I guess.

I was actually surprised they didn't give them both penalties in that situation. I am glad they let them race.

I guess they'll just stack the tyres up and try and get 5 minutes in.

Glad to see Keeting/Bleekemolen find their rabbit's foot and take GTD win after the year they have had.

Porsche winning GTLM again!

Interesting race, but I still ask myself the question what Porsche is doing to avoid bop. Sucks for the #14 Lexus. I thought a win was theirs. Not the most action packed race in GTE but decent action here and there. I think they should have prototypes in the race again honestly. Might need to with the drop of Fords next year, GTE is going to be kinda sparse.

I was wondering that myself, and I can't believe it is they are showing their true hand after reports Core was one of the BoP radio "offenders." I would assume that's not something that would stay on one side of the garage, BUT they are obviously doing something IMSA can understand and not slow them. That then makes me feel like everyone else might be holding back more and more each event and IMSA has caught on, but that assumes first that drivers can resist pushing and second teams are better off not winning again and again until they are so far back as to not win the championship.

The race itself seemed entertaining in the parts I caught, was in and out with saw and sander running so missed more than a few things. I do wonder what the difference is with GT drivers and not having prototypes around that brings out seemingly calmer racing. I don't know if it's prototype guys wanting the corners and elbows out driving or GT guys having to push more to make up time lost, but GTD still has to contend with faster GTs and amateur vs factory pro drivers and they still make it work. It would be interesting to see lap charts and overlays with only GTs and then the whole field running to see what changes.

To get an idea of how quick the Porsche 911 RSRs are today. The last time that the prototypes ran at V.I.R was in 2013 with the American Le mans series. Linked is the qualifying times for that. The Porsche would have been 5th overall just slightly behind the Level 5 P2 cars of the day. Lawrence Vanthoor in the #92 car won the pole at 1:40.6

Certainly less of a chance at collisions. GT drivers don't do mirror driving as much. But yeah I wonder still how Katherine Legge could have had the crash she had. It was late in the race and her stint too. So that was unexpected. Biggest crash at V.I.R in a race since the ALMS.

Well down one team in Michelin Cup, eEuroparts apparently was struggling and got bought out recently and the team has closed shop. That's 4 Audi's gone, GT4 and 3 TCRs I believe.

Is Audi even going to bother paying the IMSA fees if there are no teams left with interest in campaigning Audis?

They said they were interested (as they were at the end of 2018), however nothing firm so far.
