THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS

Out of all the races we’ve had so far this year in this series, I’d put this up there with Sebring as one of the cleaner races. I mean, it didn’t go completely perfect, which one of these races did. Other than some problems with the start in LMP as well as a lag related crash in that field on lap 1, there were not any major race ending incidents that couldn’t just be chalked up to “it’s racing, shit happens”. That actually kind of coincides with Le Mans races in the past, as they’ve all been pretty much incident free races. The race definitely had a good response. Viggen took the time to write an excellent post race summary of his battle for 7th. The turnout was the largest we’ve had for a Le Mans race since 2014. The GT field was the biggest we’ve seen since Daytona, although the LMP field was small, which is fine. Some of the driver’s that signed up had to back out last minute. Hopefully we’ll have a big crowd for Spa, too.

Speaking of Spa, I have some exciting or terrifying news, depending on your viewpoint. For this next race, I am not going to hold a vote on the weather and make the executive decision that this race will be run in the rain. While that has the potential to make the race a bit messy, I feel that this series would not be complete if we didn’t race in the rain. On top of that, I believe that Spa is one of the more forgiving tracks to race on in the rain. Also, depending on the voting for December’s race, this might be our last chance to race in the rain. If everyone is not okay with the breakdown of democracy for this month, I can always reinstate the vote on the weather. Moving on from that, expect a round of BOP adjustments, especially in LMP. I have been in the process of testing all of the cars over the past few days, but got delayed by an illness. I should have the testing done by Wednesday, though. Based on the testing I have done, I can give you some early advice: don’t be afraid of RWD. I’ve been running traction control, and the RWD cars will run just as fast if not faster than their AWD counterparts. The race itself has the potential to happen any weekend in July other than the first weekend, so their is a lot of flexibility for this one. I know some of you won’t be able to make it later in the month, so we’ll have to see how the voting goes.

Congrats to everyone who raced! As usual, this race was very challenging and very fun. I look forward to seeing everyone at the fourth running next year. I might need to start practicing soon. Now I have a reputation to uphold...
