    Seems to be the right choice. Pipo Derani is already over 3 seconds faster than the DPis on Wets.

    The line is definitely dry enough, however whenever they have to negotiate traffic and go off the line and into the puddles, it'll be pretty sketchy

    Doesn't seem like a big fire, but after all it is a fire for Mazda again.

    If old Top Gear ran a professional racing team, it would have to be Mazda. :rolleyes:

    If Mazda didn't have bad luck, they wouldn't have any at all. :(

    It made it back to the pits and got a new front end, it's going to take a miracle for them to get back into contention though.

    Greetings, GTPlaneteers! Enjoying Sebring?

    Man... Mazda can't catch a break, seems like. I have enjoyed most of this race that I've been able to see.

    I have to say that one of my favorite things about IMSA Radio is the segments when Scott Atherton joins the booth for a few minutes. I've always liked the fact that the President of IMSA is willing to actually join the radio team for some segments of the race broadcast.

    That Grasser Lambo just always turns up at the end. Nasr had one hell of a restart to pull away from Taylor.

    That is what I call racing. Great battles to the end, door to door GT fights... IMSA just keeps delivering.

    Super Sebring was super fun to watch, hopefully we have another one next year!

    I think it was a pretty good race, it would have been better if Mazda hadn't had their issues as they managed to set the fastest lap. Of course there are already people complaining about Cadillac and BoP, but I don't see how IMSA can BoP teams having their act together (plus Derani). Penske just can't seem to be in contention at the end and Mazda can't seem to catch a break. CORE is doing pretty good, but they're fighting an uphill battle considering how late they switched to the Nissan.

    GTLM and GTD should be fun to watch all season. It's a shame Grasser isn't doing the full season.

    I'm still surprised at how Penske is dominating pretty much everything in sight elsewhere but are struggling so much in IMSA at the moment. That is the most un-Penske thing ever.

    Anyone know when that race is supposed to be uploaded to their YouTube channel? Usually it's the following Tuesday but nothing yet
