I'm definitely looking forward to it. Should be an awesome show.

The top class should be a bit more interesting as well. Not only will Penske be there with Acura, but so with Joest with the new and improved Mazda.

But another story that I didn't hear about until just recently is that Cadillac will not be running those big lazy bulletproof 6.2L V8's in their prototype. They're instead using a new 5.5L V8.

Apparently they felt that there was little point in running the big engine if they're just going to get BoP'd to hell and back, so they downsized their engine to be more in line with the other prototypes without any BoP adjustments. This is supposed to improve driveability as well, apparently.

So anyway, we should see quite a lot more action at the pointy end of the field this season.

that live stream didn't want to work (on my phone - didn't have a pc present)
and on top of that, racer.com's rss feed pushed updates untill the 8th hour, then just stopped

so much for trying to follow the race :(
