You are right of course, I misread the article.. Farnbacher and Riberas were with the team when it raced in GTD last

Compass has said it's another Sprint Cup season for them, budget doesn't seem likely to come for full entry fee and full season sadly.

I didn't see drivers announced with the team line-up for Heart of Racing last night. Assuming James might want to run in the enduros or just Daytona.

Well Paul Miller seems to be the early favorite for GTD now, Brian Sellers and Madison Snow are back in the Lamborghini. It seems IMSA is returning him to silver as the FIA rated him

Probably saw it coming I guess it softens the blow some. Felt similar to the Falken Porsche team finishing up in 2015 as well. The opposite was the sudden shut down of the Dodge Viper team in 2014. Something thing that I think still set the series as a whole back until Ford came in. Its a blow to GTLM for sure. The new Corvettes and Porsches will help some just in terms of interest since obviously it does not help in grid numbers.

Does anybody else think we are looking at a 2020 Daytona 24 grid of under 45 cars? The positive is that it can allow for much fewer potential for safety cars to come out. That part I am looking forward to. The negative is the prospect of unemployed racing crew members and drivers will feel much more real. The Ford GTs especially will be missed big time. But I will also miss the screaming Porsche 911 RSR 16s. The 19s will have a cool sound too, but it won't be same. Also the liveries are not impressive one bit. I did enjoy the white/red/black Porsche crest one, which we said good bye to after Laguna Seca. I would have rather Corvette keep both of their cars to yellow as well.

I think in the 40-48 car range is about right and deceasing after that.
As for the losses, I can't say I'll miss the Ford or the previous Porsches. Wasn't ever a fan of the Ford, nothing against it but didn't like the look and my God it sounded bad on SC laps. But then the BMW does there as well. As for the Porsche, that wasn't a pretty noise at all. It was just painful, and not enjoyable at all. It wasn't the volume but the pitch, it was piercing without any character.

No Mirko Bertolotti in IMSA full time 2020 now. He has left Grasser Lamborghini after many years with them to drive for Audi. We really don't know the Grasser driver line up yet. Will be curious to see how they do on a full time basis nevertheless. Especially up against Sellers/Snow. Who have proven to be a great team. Lamborghini should hook them up with GT World Challenge races too. Sellers/Snow would do well at places like Spa I think.

As far as an Audi presence in IMSA in 2020? Who knows. Have heard nothing.

Is the Grasser car the one Legge and Nielsen are running in?

Hard disagree on the porsches. Those things sound awesome. Ear splitting, but awesome. I won't miss the fords as much as I will what losing them represents. A 6 car gtlm field looks like the beginning of a downward spiral like what gt1 became. Lot more subtraction overall than addition this offseason, which is not encouraging. Hopefully there's a bounceback in the near future.

I thought they're running 2 cars with the Legge and Nielsen car being one of them.

DSC saying today a second Grasser car could feature Mr Potter, essentially absorbing the Magnus racing programme that was previously in doubt for 2020

I thought that Magnus was in doubt due to Potter retiring from driving? Same reason the Core Nissan DPI program is no more due to Jon Bennet retiring from competitive driving. Am I correct on that or did I mishear/misread something?
