It seems like one lane always has a huge advantage in putting power down out of the final corner.

Don't know if this has been covered, but it looks like all the 2017 IMSA races will now be shown live and many of them have been moved from FS2 to FS1.

Good news for them.

I hope that's a sign that the ratings for Rolex were much higher than anticipated.

So Fox won't even be showing the race live on FoxSports Go? BeINSports also didn't show the MotoGP race at CoTA live either a few weeks back either, but at least they streamed it live on their app. Even F1 qualifying's been relegated by NBCSN to online streaming once so far this season.

T1 would be great for watching the start. Most of the passing opportunities will be at T12, so sitting by there or in the T15 grandstands will allow you to catch a lot of the action. But yeah, walk around a bit and watch from different vantage points.

quote:

The pole-sitting No. 7 Toyota of Kobayashi retired in the 10th hour with clutch failure, in what Vasselon said was triggered by a bizarre pit lane incident.

He said it was the “most amazing” problem they had during the race.

Kobayashi pitted for routine service while under the race’s second safety car period before going into the queue at pit exit, where Vasselon said he was signaled to re-enter the track by a fake marshal, believed to be a driver from another team.

“It’s amazing… Someone came to tell him, and we have it on video: ‘Go go go!’ And normally, our drivers are used to the human action dominate signs,” Vasselon explained.


“From our side, we told him stop because the safety car queue was coming, and it was not possible.

“There has been, as you can imagine, some confusion. Start, stop, start, stop.

“So he had done several restarts with the clutch and the combustion engine… and burned the clutch because he has been thrown into a situation which should not exist.”

Kobayashi ground to a halt moments later and was forced to retire the car at the Porsche Curves.

Yeah I would guess Penske puts an experienced endurance driver in the other seats. Lots of good talent out there, especially with the demise of Audi's LMP1 program. Maybe somebody like Romain Dumas, who used to drive for Penske in the ALMS Porsche Spyder days, or Loic Duval.
