    Some Lamborghini liveries were unveiled today.

    GEAR Racing #19

    [​IMG]

    Grasser-Magnus #44

    In typical Magnus fashion, they made the unveil more entertaining.

    “With Magnus Racing broken up, I thought the car should reflect the new wedding that is GRT Magnus: something old (the drivers and Flex-Box), something new (GRT), something borrowed (the GRT crew), and something blue.”

    Finally the Paul Miller #48

    Two of of those look pretty solid, but the Lambo has great lines for most liveries - they just work well on the car.

    Would someone please render up that Gear Racing livery for GT Sport?

    It is the case, but it's an odd one. I guess the Japanese fiscal year runs through....March or something bizarre? Basically Joest/Mazda are still a thing on paper until....Sebring? The work behind the actual scenes is already being handled/done by Multimatic and that started last year more or less.

    So for appearances sake, and honoring their contract, Joest/Mazda will exist for the first couple races until the contract properly expires. It's been a month since I heard the explanation on a podcast but that's the short version. Someone can probably elaborate for me.

    PS: Is the white Mazda the new livery, or is that a customer car? I thought I had heard a rumour about a Mazda customer car at some point?

    Unless something has changed, 77 is definitely a Mazda "works" number.

    Just wait for @anthaliscious to finish his up. His IMSA liveries are always on point.

    Here is the passenger/rear angle.

    Apparently they will change liveries every 2-3 races.

    An interesting little snippet was in the Sportscar 365 Notebook.

    https://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/daytona-thursday-notebook-9/
    2/3 are likely Compass and Park Place, but the potential Acura entry is interesting. RealTime seems to be the most likely as they have said a return/expansion to IMSA was in the cards (albeit with a TCR, not a GT3), Gradient also seems possible as they've yet to announce anything for 2020. Racers Edge also runs the NSX in the SRO series, but they seem focused on expanding there.

    A completely new team is also an obvious possibility, but that's not as fun to speculate about. :p

    The new Mazda livery for the 77 reminds me of the old Muscle Milk Aston Martin :D Good times...

    With so many talented IMSA drivers without a solid ride this season, it'd be easy to replace him - but I know he brings the money, etc. That would truly suck if they can't make it because of such a minor thing.

    Yeah I think Dalla Lana was funding a huge chunk of that program. If he pulls funding due to the fact that he can’t compete, they’ll be in trouble

    It's a damn shame that I have to use a VPN to watch the Prototype Challenge now.

    Just pay the less than $2/mo it costs for NBC Gold.

    Yeah $20 for the whole season is a pretty good deal considering how much they are including. I paid twice that for the IndyCar pass last year and that didn't even have live race coverage of the primary series (hopefully that changes this year).
