They've been slow all season, even compared to the few other R8s that have run. Audi swears it's fine but something must be truly screwed up with that chassis after they've rebuilt it multiple times this season. Think we'll see them pack it up after this race and pursue another program if they want to race still. It will be sad to see another team head off but can't say I can blame them at all

I'm surprised that they didn't just buy or rent another R8 to see if it's a problem with that particular car. You'd have to assume that there's some defect with that car or Starworks has badly missed the set up.

I don't know, but is that within the feasibility of Starworks budget? And wouldn't you exhaust everything else first?

I mean it's the first thing I try. A slow lap, I whip out the check book and get another car. However it might not really be on for them?

I was wondering if we were going to see a track record this weekend, then I looked it up. No we are not. Audi R10 had a 1:46.9. and real track record is Dario Franchitti with a 1:39. That's fast. I think this years Indy race was around a 1:40 as well.

Colton put it on pole as the only one in the 42s at 1:42.992. I don't think they will get too close unless the hybrid really adds something or they really upgrade the tires.

Mr Chase bought the two ex-Stevenson Motorsports cars when the team folded at the end of the 2017 season. So unless they've sold the second car which they had on display at all the PWC races in 2018, then that car should be available!

3) Maclaren
4) Porsche
5) Acura
6) BMW
7) Lexus
10) Ferrari
13) Audi

GTML times were nearly all below the class record for the track. Porsche had one lap thrown out for track limits at turn 1, and Ford is close, no word yet.

edit: ford's time was also thrown out, so they are down the order now.

Great interview with Cameron after getting the pole, he didn't thank Acura or Penske, or any sponsors! It was pretty refreshing to be honest. He basically just said, yeah, I was good, and these cars are fun to drive.

not a surprise!
R10 had 700hp but looking at that car with 2019 eyes, it was just a bodyworked rolling chassis almost without aero and with a huge torque!



DPi have much better and developed aero, better tires, better chassis etc...
a DPI would easily run in 3.21-3.22 at le mans.


As expected, despite bop changes, it remains a mazda vs acura challenge, cadillacs have just been pushed back for good

I don't think you can cross Cadillac out for the remainder of the season. I think they will be riding a BoP wave come Petit time.
