CTMP Mosport IMSA Round

Since there's no race thread yet and the action got started yesterday, I'll start a thread for Mosport's IMSA event.

Weekend race hub from IMSA:

https://sportscarchampionship.imsa.c...car-grand-prix

Any moderator or admin who has elements that they'd like to add, feel free to do so.

One noteworthy piece of news is that the #48 Paul Miller Lamborghini has been withdrawn after it was damaged beyond immediate repair after a heavy crash in FP3 this morning.

-Wow the GTD grid has taken a beating in the past week. Hopefully we can get as many as possible to be there for Lime Rock. Important since that is an all GT race.

-Trent Hindmans' Acura did not win the pole this time! But we have seen the BMW M6 does well at these middle of the season tracks. This driver Robbie Foley, don't know much about him. But he ain't no slouch though.

-And also BMW M8 wins a rare pole in GTLM. I don't think they have ever gone 1-2 in qualifying but they did so. I feel Porsche's win streak ends on Sunday. Don't know by whom, but advantage team R.L.L for now.

-Glad to see Porsche going back to factory livery at Lime Rock. Like the white/black/red look ever since it came in 2017. Worried about that going away with the RSR debuting in 2020.

I feel bad for Bryan Sellers. Still one of the top drivers in IMSA and we have not even heard much of him at all this year. He goes from having the best co driver in Madison Snow to the worst in Ryan Hardwick. Everytime Sellers gets the wheel the car is already out of contention. Did Sellers even drive at Watkins Glen during the race? I think the #48 Lambo was out by the 4th hour. And now they are out due to Hardwick's practice crash.

Paul Miller has a spare chassis at the shop in Braselton so I'd expect they're going to be at the race. It sounds like they aren't happy with the P2 car that punted them off track though.

On the Porsche color schemes it probably will be like the car run at Goodwood. Porsche motorsport has said that the WEC cars at least will be mostly white and greyish silver. Daily Sports Car has an article about the color schemes.

Yeah, I'm hoping GTD is a little more back together for the next round.

It's good to see the M8 having a strong showing in GTLM.

I can see why the Nissan sin't getting the race results. Holy hell! The way Colin is having the fling that thing around and hang on for dear life over the curbs like that to get the lap time, jeez; it's little wonder that car's been going off the rails at some point during the races.

HighParker should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For many years now, going back to at least to the time of ALMS, there's been a promo event on the Wednesday before the race, usually at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto, though once it was at a big box store complex in Bowmanville. I don't think there was one this year, unless they somehow failed to mention it on their website.
To get a little off-topic, I didn't realize the likes of Roger Penske and Bob Holbert had been racing here in Ontario even before Mosport existed.

Harewood Acres became an oil refinery, while Edenvale is still an airfield and was in the news last week as the location of a cancelled classic rock festival.

Braun sets the lap record on way to pole for Core Nissan

http://results.imsa.com/Results/19_2...Qualifying.PDF

The other Japanese cars make up the top 5 before you get the the contingent of Caddys


Edit: I wonder if Core will elect to start with Bennett instead of Braun like they did last season and start from the rear of the proto field?

Undoubtedly a record for the DPI era, but Dindo is still fastest man around Mosport. How long, though, is a question.

That's like arguing a GTLM record shouldn't count because Dindo was faster. It's a different class and the lap record for the cars on track was reset and improved from last year. They didn't say anything about fastest ever lap time which would be a different class of car.

I don't see why CORE still tries to win poles then. Are there bonus points for that? Well if IMSA really wants to discourage the qualifying/starting driver change, then have them start in the back of the overall field behind the GT cars rather than just the prototypes.

Also I think they should do away with having all of the DPI's start in front of the other classes automatically at the restart after the safety car.....

or something better.....

institute Code 60/FCY for any situations involving stalled cars or debris.

The Code 60 bit will never fly with either IMSA or their insurance. They just aren't going to let people on track without a SC style bunching. That ship and ability has sailed away and it's not coming back and time soon.

As for them running for pole, they like it so why knock it? They're here, they've spent millions of his money to play so let them play. What does it hurt the series, the race or other teams if they want to go fast and throw down a lap time? It keeps their pro driver happy in the car.

In keeping with their usual habit, according to everyone's favorite "reporter:"

The No. 54 Nissan DPi, however, will start from the rear of the DPi field on Sunday following a decision to switch starting drivers to team owner/driver Jon Bennett, as well as changing tires. Braun said in the post-qualifying press conference that he would be “surprised” if he were to start the race. From S365 notes for the weekend.

Including a few comments about next season with some unrest in the GTD ranks with a couple teams looking at new manufacturers for 2020.

Well, if we're comparing top class to top class, then the Core Nissan DPI is still over .5 of a second slower than the old Audi R10 was. I do suspect that with some development that a DPI will be faster around Mosport in a year, two at the very extreme most.

It's just like comparing GTE/GTLM to GT1 They're basically as fast as GT1 cars now. And with their aero packages, they're only 1100kg minimum weight, 600-650bhp and carbon brakes away from doing what a GT1 could do now.

Big reason for this, of course, is tires. GTLMs also have less rubber on the road than the GT1s did, same with LMP1 vs DPI. But that's been erased by what Michelin have done.
