To be fair, I think the claim does stand now. I think it's quite reasonable to make that suggestion in 2018. 2017 was quite far off for most of the year. But, we've got to be fair - first year of a brand new formula. It wasn't going to be perfect, so really that's fine.

The best part of doing science on this topic is gathering data. Qualifying at noon, let's see what comes of it.

At Watkins Glen, CORE were able to burn up the Am driver time early and use Dumas and Braun to recover the lost time. That won't work quite as well this week as they're down to one Pro and one Am. Proportionally, the Am gets more time this week, and the Pro has less time to recover. Shorter lap means they'll probably lose a lap if they started with the Am as well.

They've improved a lot and done a lot of work on simulations, hence the gap to the rest of the LMP2 field. But I suspect this will be a simple DPi win.

The nature of this track may mean lots of caution periods. I wouldn't put it out of the realm of another p2 win. Traffic is a killer too, that might be the biggest factor. So far it's usually only the Oreca that's competitive, but that's not their fault for making the best lmp2.

And I think the victor will be in the Oreca DPI Acura. they have looked strong so far, but the Alon laid down a great lap in the JDC oreca in qualifying. If he has that pace in the race then they could also be a contender.

do you mean in relation to the spread in time of the top 10? or laptimes?

Trick is that BoP racing is on the other side of the fair or equal argument. It's core to the cost reduction premise that BoP will offset any deficit in resources or development while single make racing specifically only ensures everyone gets the same starting platform.

I have to say that while it pretty much invalidates what I was saying about the Cadillac in isolation, having a lot of different winners isn't really my basis for good BoP anyways. The easiest way to get everyone a win is to have terrible BoP in favour of a different car every week after all.

And that's how it usually turns out. If you win one week, you might as well not show up for the next race since you won't be allowed to win again.

The spread. Many times the spread across the Indycar field (quali or race) is more than DPi. Sometimes quite a bit more. My point with that is that there is a lot of race engineering and other variables that we on message boards sometimes forget about. Even some drivers click with certain tracks and some drivers are just better than everyone else, etc.

This is probably not the thread for this question but I did not see a PLM thread...

And chance Porsche will bring their un-resricted 919 Hybrid Evo to PLM as part of their tour with the car? Getting to see a demonstration lap or two would be worth the price of admission. Also, it would be interesting to see if they can break Peugeot's 2008 record.

Trying to imagine how you can modify a LMP2 car to look like a Ford. Changes to the front to make it look like the GT are obvious. I wonder if you can have some sort of bar that links the side by the fin to the side pods to have that look you see near the back of the GT. That open part on the top/side where the air goes through. Keeping the Ecoboost engine seems obvious too.

I'm saying that's highly doubtful. They've advertised all of the stops they've done for the car on the website.

And... I just checked the website, https://www.919tribute.com/en/stops

I do not recall that October date being on there before. So.. who knows? Maybe. It'll already be in the States for Rennsport...

Which I am attending and counting the days until! (41)

You could just follow the Cadillac method and not worry about it.
