Figure rather than fun the IMSA 2020 thread I'll start a Petit thread, sorry no fancy fact filled opening post though.

Mainly going to this one to avoid attending zero races this calendar year.

Hopefully they get rid of the bop for this race. It's not real racing otherwise. And the Ford GT actually comes back this time. And they finally allow the GT3 cars to race unrestricted. And reverse grid. And no safety car. And they combine the challenge support races. And then run the old back stretch. Not real racing otherwise.

You know where to find us if you want to talk BoP and gravity cavity from 6 feet apart. don't forget the outside of 5, since that was paved, it's no longer a man's track.

This will be my only trip to a track this year and I'm glad to have it.

So we've heard a GT4 McLaren decided to exit the track mid session today in testing. Oh, he left at 6, entered the woods and went 250' or so it to the tree line. Driver walked away but wow, expect a withdraw from the GS ranks.

I'd like to find out but sounds like it somehow launched into the tires which then propelled it over and out. They apparently had to cut down a half dozen trees to get it out. Maybe a stuck throttle?

And I just left T6 20 mins earlier....

I was thinking stuck throttle too because it sounds like it was carrying a ton of speed. Six is a fairly low speed corner.

Glad to hear the driver is ok!

Cars on track, it is cool with an occasional mist in the air. Forecast says it's sunny. Oh well.

Sun's out now. I'm about bust out the guns. Where are you? I was hoping you'd be updating post #1 for us with proper linkage.

Ah, the night humidity.

The sparks from the GTD cars over the apex curb of 3 are flying already. Lexus runs about 10'of sparks slamming the splitter

Edit-Hindy's right. The Riley AMG makes a HELLA spark show as well. And 2 and 3 both now for the Riley
