What do you think of the schedule of the race starting at 4 pm? The majority of the race is going to be in the dark which is not TV friendly at all. I know there are night racing lovers out there, but I don't like looking at a TV screen with headlights glaring the whole time. Wish it started earlier.

I like it. The endurance championship needs to have more than one race a season with darkness running.

And I don't understand this complaint that the cars are unidentifiable. With intelligent camera positioning (i.e. not looking straight at the headlights), the cars are relatively easy to tell apart.

The LMP1s are 40 km/h faster than the GTEs down the Ullman Straight! That's a Le Mans-esque diffenence but on a straight barely a kilometre long.

I wish it started later so people working aren't screwed for seeing the start.

With the clocks forward this time of year it should get dark around 7-7:30, that's still a few hours of daytime racing.

Toyota tops FP1 and FP2. Followed by Rebellion in FP1 and SMP in FP2. Good to see competition behind Toyota.

Toyota handing the bumps better? Well, let's see--factory developed car, I'm pretty sure that Toyota uses the Cambridge inerter/J-Damper (LMP1 privateers might have them but I don't know), and FRIC (which the privateers don't have).

I was wondering how different the track conditions are now vs qualifying time in the dark. Currently it is sunny with the air temp of 28.3 and track is 37.8. I expect the track to cool a bit for qualifying.

Yeah I guess they just skipped it because the track will be a lot different. I didn't see anyone go for really quick laps on the timing.

I wonder how far from full potential are the Toyota running at Sebring. It does not take a great supernatural hero or magical hero to give them a win this weekend.
