It's quite amusing reading a lot of the comments on SC365 and Facebook etc. A LOT of butthurt people.

Vista AF Corse (LMGT3) have also been fined 60,000€ (30,000€ suspended) for concealing operational personnel. They ended up submitted three different staff lists with engineers names appearing and disappearing. The engineers were spotted working in the garage by an official and then proceed to lie when confronted.

You've now said EVERY team needs to 3D scan every piece of equipment to verify they're compliant, I'm sure that's not something you grab from the bargain bin at Amazon

No, I am not against booting cheats, I would have preferred MSR booted from the series for the nonsense last year cause that wasn't a little issue. But for a deficiency that can be verified as Friday afternoon build at Dallara strikes me as fine or yellow card like strike. And would require open disclosure of yes, this is was found, this is the documentation of issue and supplier comment. And the next time, yup that's paddling time Jasper

The deficiency could have gained them an advantage though.

Indeed but I still prefer when it's possible to write a comment about the article, even if it's dumb On some sites you can't write any comments.

Could have, but doesn't seem like much here. My biggest gripe isn't about the penalty, but why has this taken weeks to announce? I presume they scanned the car at the event after the race? If it was deemed bad then, why wait until now to announce.

Also, don't they do pre-event scrutineering, so this was maybe a different body panel? Or do they not scan pre-race?

You've defined the dumpster fires that are S365 and Racer comment sections. If every driver ever in an IMSA event posted there still would be 500 extra I've raced before experts posting there

That's my problem, and from the comments from all parties it appears they all agree there was no benefit to be had from the part.

It's hard to believe how bad the WEC is at basic comms. The website and app have no news of the Caddy disqualification, the results still show the Caddy in 4th place, the points tables have not been updated on the app and I couldn't even find the points tables on the website. Just amazing.

it is pathetically bad, especially when you pay a fair penny to watch it and it doesn't even cover a full year, I desubbed the moment I found that out and will NEVER sub again.

Just a cheap effort at money grabbing, one of the worst websites for a top line series in the world, mind you IMSA is not much better.

Habsburg may miss the Imola round after a crash at Aragon in the Alpine resulted in him fracturing 2 lumbar vertebrae.

On the topic of bad ACO websites, the ELMS website current states that the ELMS race is at 11:30 UK time, and 11:30 Spanish time. However, Spain and the UK are an hour apart.

I didn't know how to do software development and literally managed to build an app to do this. And the ACO still can't.

Ooh, that sounds nasty. Hope he makes a full and swift recovery. I wonder if Gounon will get a run or if they just run with two drivers.

Hopefully he makes a speedy recovery. Not sure how severe it is but I'm guessing he sits out Imola and returns for Spa.

Just thinking about it...

If McLaren produces a Hypercar, what would they choose to base their chassis on? LMH or LMDh?

They do have a 3.8 L V-8 engine they make and race. Just add turbo and hybrid system, ready to go. As for outer body styling, originally was thinking 670/720, but with a few tweaks, I'm also thinking P1/Senna.

Habsburg still recovering so Gounon makes a quick debut after joining Alpine's factory roster.
