As far as I know, the only racing organization that mandates a specific exit time from a burning car is the SCTA at Bonneville, etc. Is there any others out there that specify you have to get out of a car unassisted in a certain amount of time or else you aren't cleared to race?

V8Supercar:

D3.10 Cockpit Exit Time
3.10.1 The Driver seated in a normal position at the wheel, wearing his complete racing
equipment and with his safety belts fastened, must be able to exit the cockpit in 7
seconds through the door on his side and in 12 seconds through the opposite door.

It's probably the weight and added complexity of those devices that kept him away. It's easier to package and hide the weight in a touring car or GT car versus a single-seater.

Although in WTCC he did have to run 30kg heavier than the field because of the sequential gearbox rules of the time.

I remember Ralf Schumacher (I think?) getting his qualifying times disallowed for a session at the British GP one year, because he wasn't able to get out of the car in the allotted time in an impromptu inspection.

Heard a bunch of the P2 cars had problems and probably more look at Muscle Milk's time. I've seen a lot of people going ape poo poo even though they aren't too far off. Honestly only hope is surviving the race and the new engines and so forth don't live on the DPs.

Knew GTD was going to be close as hell. That's going to be a fist fight from start to finish.

Well theres also the issue of fuel consumption. P2 are going to make less stops with the lighter car and less HP, especially compared to the Vette which is gonna be a burn machine with the new power.

Also that the P2 cars are gonna murder the DPs come Sebring.

Whole thing is really complicated and I'm glad I'm not the one setting the BoP regs.

I try like every year, but the beer normally gets to me around 3am.

Also I don't get Fox Sports 2, so I'm gonna miss 5 hours regardless. It's only in one package on my Fios, and its the SECOND best tier... I pay for the top tier, and don't get it. Thanks Verizon.

I'm sure that's something that could be fixed in #NASCAR.

Milka qualifying at the back and leaving Andy Wallace to play real life Daytona USA and get back to the front was always one of my favorite things about Grand Am.

She even has a win as well at Homestead... actually 2 because they had 2 races at Homestead in 04. I have to feel sorry for the Franchitti's who drove with her for 2 consecutive Rolex 24s in the mid-2000s.
