Poor traction from the Ford GT?

EDIT: Oh like Evans with Lotterer behind him in the FE race.

Ran out of fuel. (That's what Jeremy Shaw believed anyway and it makes sense to me.)

Another entertaining race this weekend after the FE. Next up is the F1 and also the Super GT if anyone can get a stream.

Then there's the IndyCar and Moto GP as well.

Spring has certainly arrived.

There's also Nascar at Richmond, but I'm gonna go sleep for 6 hours. Need some rest before it all kicks off tomorrow. Cheers y'all!

Notes: - Oliver Jarvis posted the fastest time of the day in WeatherTech Championship practice with a best lap of 1:28.158 (92.206 mph) in the No. 77 Mazda Team Joest RT-24P DPi. Eric Lux led the way in LMP2 practice at 1:37.375 (83.479 mph) in the No. 52 PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA, while Nick Tandy topped the GT Le Mans (GTLM) time charts in the No. 911 Porsche GT Team 911 RSR at 1:32.142 (88.220 mph). Jack Hawksworth – who won the GT Daytona (GTD) class pole here last year – was quickest in GTD practice Friday at 1:30.190 (90.129 mph).

- IMSA Prototype Challenge points leader Austin McCusker set the fastest lap Friday in a pair of wet practice sessions. His lap of 1:50.697 (73.432 mph) in the No. 47 Forty7 Motorsports Norma M30 came in the day’s first session and was 0.669 seconds quicker than Stevan McAleer, 1:55.366, who paced the field in the second session in the No. 43 Robillard Racing Norma M30.

These Porsches must have a special engine mode for getting out of the gravel/grass/swamp without excessive wheelspin. Everybody is spinning off but get going again!

Weird for both Acuras to be so far down. Weather was somewhat of a factor, but I suspect that was not the entire story.

It was crazy for sure, even cars getting out of the swamp.
