It'll probably have strong crowds for a couple of years, but just like with the Brickyard 400, once the novelty wears off, it'll probably turn into just another race. Basically the curse of the 500 at Indy.

I have no doubt the crowds will be lower in the later years. Much lower than the seventeen that are their in year one.

I think the problem is success will be measured by the pagoda sales and not the fans by the track. Trying to convince the bosses at Company X to invest and let's meet and talk it over at Mid-Ohio while we watch the racing you're buying in to. Or hey, we've got this box in the pagoda at Indy and we can show you what you're buying in to there. Much easier sell as even the average person could find Indy somewhere in their memory bank.

I get it but no reason I have to agree or like it

IMSA borrowing Ferrari's foot aiming shotgun this weekend. First Indy and it's expected enduro future and then removing EVERY GTD team but Hardpoint for 2023. That seems like a GREAT plan, if you believe S365's comments the manufacturers are pushing for that.

The announcement of IMSA going to Indy was joined shortly after by SRO confirming COTA (to replace Watkins Glen) - that's a pretty bad day for American sports car racing.

And having the 4-hour MPC race there is just taking the p*ss!

SRO is very much a side note - and has been for a while now, so I wouldn't bother too much about that.

Sadly that seems to be the case lately. The TV coverage seems half assed, even compared to the choppy IMSA product, and 345 and half divisions make it seem like everyone wins something. Which is sad cause they have that great middle between GT4 and TCR racing there too. Lots of decent cars, good teams but just feels like an oh yeah they're still here series.

Hopefully IMSA can keep from going that way but decisions lately don't seem to indicate that. But the France family ain't having good luck in their original product either

Well the rumors about Bronze only for GTD went splat, no announcement so many of the GTD teams will still be running GTD not promoted.

Petit moved back 2 weeks, Indy Sept 15-17 all classes, Detroit only MPC GS class so IMSA teams can focus on LM. Mid-Ohio gone, no mention of Road America to evening race as has been rumored.

GTD Sprint Cup discontinued, could impact some of the teams that ran only sprint races.

Daytona again optional for LMP2 and LMP3.

Top Bronze driver in GTD will get a mention at each race and season winner gets the Akin Award to LM.

Happy about this. Ams are obviously the bedrock of the sport, but any rules essentially mandating the top series becomes more bronzey just doesn't feel right - especially given the influx of factory supported prototypes.

Watching to Michelin Pilot Challenge race. 1h 45m to go. So obviously we’ve just had the IMSA infomercial. Turns out that going to Indy is “great!”. Seems we’ve got it all wrong.

That was a fun race, although not one for gert, obviously.

Enjoyed the Alfa action at the end. Made use of those tyres
