Race has been really good so far. It’s been strange to see the GT cars matching and sometimes even bettering the prototypes for straight-line speed on the banking, with the prototypes having to get their overtaking done on the infield. Shame that some of the more interesting entries fell by the wayside throughout the night. The Deltawing has been in and out of the pits and seems to have dropped a long way back, Jan Magnussen’s Corvette is no longer in the race, as is one of the Mazda LMP’s.
Sounds as if the two drivers involved in the massive shunt that red flagged the race are both awake and alert. which is always good news, goes without saying.
The LMPs high-downforce bodies just don’t work on the banking (despite the LMP2 horsepower increase over ACO spec). The situation will be reversed at Sebring, where cornering ability is much more important. GT tends to be more interesting anyway..
