That GTD finish was exhilarating.

Ford just wasn't a factor at the end in GTLM. Oh well.

Congrats to my main GT lads in the #912 for the well deserved championship.

 

Also, some warm Cheers for Monty and Dane for the DPi crown.

 

GTD was stellar again, both in the race and overall. What a wonderful year we had.

 

This is still my favorite Motorsport series out there. Been a pleasure y'all.

Damn annoying, seems all I watched was the calm before the storm, hard week at work meant I was flagging by about midnight CET!  Had to go to bed, will try and catch the full race somewhere hopefully and catch the last hour or so when it all kicked off!

 

Not a huge fan of the track however, bit small for these cars, but it certainly offers a challenge

Doonan wasn't exactly impressed with the ACO's Hypercar concept last June...

To be honest why would he be, they have a reasonably successful Prototype category in America, that seems to be working OK.  Other than the P2 class which seems a waste of time sadly. They have been doing their own thing a lot over there for years, why change for a class that in cost terms would probably mean Cadillac, Mazda and Acura would likely quit. Especially when P1 in Europe is such a dead category really.

Apparently, manufacturers ain’t lining up for hypercars so maybe DPi 2.0 will be the thing.

That place needs some natural track limits. Like grass or gravel or something.

Come to think of it, this should really be a night race with a hundred neon lights - "1.5 hours of the Strip".

 

Think of the sponsorship opportunities.

Well someone ought to try a bit harder. How many spectators did you see on the feed? 

 

There was this one cyclist, but that was before the race and beyond the track area wall..

You may get your wish. Blancpain Race 2 is at 7:30pm Vegas time.

Back when I was with Dario we filmed a demo run down the strip as a precursor to that dreadful 2011 LV race.

Everyone was of the idea that here was indeed the place to hold a race and there’s been so many attempts at doing it that the City Council now defers any inquiry to the bottom of all motions put before them as a ‘FU...we don’t need no stinking race on our hallowed Strip.’

That's a shame. Could be one of the signature events in a number of series, if there was the will to do it.

I was just wondering how much money Vegas might make on Indycar racing. I see that sports books have odds, so they must make something.

BTW, GT4 race starting now,

Spoiler alert for the race above; there are still winners in the Andretti family. Jarrett, son of John.
