I think the split races are the best way to go for this even though I enjoyed both the 2011 and 2012 races, and I'm really glad they switched the WEC race to Friday evening instead of Saturday at midnight.

Pretty positive that was the Jackie Chan/Jota car behind the Dragonspeed LMP1. I really regret not getting to see them testing but I couldn't make it down there for a couple days because of a work emergency.

2011 sebring is still the best 12H of recent years to me, the whole 2011 ALMS/ILMC/LMS seasons and LM have been quite epic actually.


BTW agree, if sebring 12H is an IMSA event, you just can't let dpi have a jobber role

So according to this entry list update from DSC:
http://www.dailysportscar.com/2019/0...confirmed.html

Only see one Toyota with the WEC designation next to it. Does this mean that the 2019/2020 WEC season will only have one Toyota in it???

Must have been a typo, both are shown WEC now.

Thanks. Especially liked the ending scene going down the front straight at sunset as the sound faded away. Nice.

hurray! Sometimes we get so wrapped up in getting what we want, that we forget to ask ourselves why we wanted it in the first place. They were informing us who were the next champs! Congratulations to them.

You do know Rebellion won Silverstone right? Sure Toyota was dq'ed but a win is a win! I hope there's more of a challenge to them than currently but we'll have to see.

The hybrid power is still a big issue for the private teams to overcome, as well as the fact that they've had to run on Toyota spec tires pending Michelin developing privateer spec tires.

Possibly, they can match Toyota for speed on a clear track, but the added power and torque of Toyota's hybrid system is probably difficult to overcome. Especially if EOT/BOP is still off. However, on that end at Shanghai, I do feel that they're headed in the right direction there.

If the private teams get their new tires and EOT/BOP is good, I still think that Toyota will dominate the final results, as you'd expect a factory team to. But if the privateers can make a race of it, at least for a while, that's probably the best we can ask for. And if we get that, this is how I'll feel about it (gratuitous Victoria Justice gif incoming):

If the "built-in one lap stint disadvantage or otherwise you're penalised" nonsense has indeed been removed for the nonhybrids at LM, then they might have a chance, but otherwise not. Unless Toyota returns to old ways of collapsing on their own

I'm not sure if that advantage is going away. Not from the last time they were interviewed about it sounded. Something about the fact they are running hybrids should be an efficiency advantage displayed by an extra lap. The only thing that could negate that is a faster pit stop by the privateers or a pace advantage. Neither looks likely imo.

According to this, the mandated advantage is gone.

Yes that's the one I was referring to however they might silently re-instate it for LM - as EoT is reversed on race-by-race basis anyway. The "agreement with the LMP1-H competitor" may be in place for the shorter races but do they still agree with it come June... if they just say "no let's go back to what we had"... well... ACO will just follow it
