It remains to be seen however if their entry request will be granted and if not, how that will affect their plans.

Very disappointing news nevertheless...



And... they ran one car against two-car opposition, which is a disadvantage. Plus the others were full factory teams. Second place seems like punching way above their weight and I'd hope they'd be proud.


Disappointed we won't see the red Risi 'rari again in IMSA this year.

Yes... I "liked" how on the NBCSN preview show the only notion of P2 to ever even have existed came from one of the DPi interviews (I think from CORE, in regards to 2018)

It was almost as funny as the FOX preview show couple of years back when they said that "Corvette Racing is perhaps best known" for giving rides to Dale Earnhardt and Earnhardt Jr at Daytona years back. (Pretty much the same was repeated on NBC of course but without the sickening best known -bit)

That's the one of the saddest things about American motorsport media coverage for these races. Without an lmp2 none of the dpi's even exist but that's ok, dpi is super fast and record setting. There's little to no recognition for stuff that's not American involved. Vette being known because Earnhardt, dpi because of Caddy etc.

While I understand the grievances, considering who he was and what happened a couple of weeks later, that Earnhardt podium is a pretty big deal, whether you people like it or not.

One of the smartest things about American motorsport coverage is that it is geared toward its actual and potential audience.

Look, IMSA knows We will be watching no matter what. So ... why cater much to us? IMSA Wants more North Americans to watch---ratings are money, eyes are dollars. And North American viewers are a lot more likely to have heard of Dale Earnhart than Hughes de Chaunac.

Yo and I might Prefer if all the coverage was geared toward our particular taste and knowledge levels .... But IMSA and NBC would prefer it if people who knew nothing about the sport, could be attracted.

And frankly, if IMSA and NBC cannot attract those people, we All lose. We could be watching Every race Only on third-rate, low-bandwidth streams with three cameras and two NASCAR-radio commentators who spent the whole time talking about winged sprint cars racing in Terre Haute.

What is wrong with some enthusiasts putting together some equipment and doing live internet broadcasts from the track, using just the kind of info we enthusiasts would want to hear? Oh, money and initiative and the willingness to work hard at a very speculative venture.

You know, it could even be done remotely---for years F1 in the U.S. was broadcast from a booth in North Carolina where the commentators watched the F1 world feed and called the action off television. That is something people could do---try to get a few ads, get a few subscribers, and see if people are interested in tuning in to listen to your commentary on the races.

I am not trying to be a smart-mouth here. I understand your complaint, but I also understand the situation from other points of view. And the only way I can see an enthusiast-oriented commentary being viable would be via streaming---and your competition would be Radio Le Mans. it's a tough topic.
