Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Go to imsa.tv and watch the in car camera.  You have a choice of Ford, Audi, Porsche, Chevrolet and prototypes.  And once you log in on the website click on the radio broadcast that runs continually.  So you have your choice car or cars and the narration.  Next best thing to Fox coverage. I highly recommend it.  In car for the Ford is the lead car of Joey Hand, car number 66.  I want Ford to beat the competition into submission.  But so many things can go wrong in a 24 hour race.  Enjoy.

The new FGT's have been so dominating they have had several rounds weight penalties and air flo penalties.

Yet they still kick butt regularly. Even with all the rules changes

Yes and it cost them Le Mans last year. Now it's 5:11 eastern and Ford still 1 and 2 in GTLM.

Fords still leading 1 and 2 but Corvette is troublesome.

Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Anyone want to lay odds on what will happen to the Ford GTs if they come in at one and two (which at this point there is a good probability).  I submit that there will be some sort of metoo type witch hunt to try and find some alleged or imagined violation of the rules and the sanctioning body will strip the GTs of their results.  Or in the alternative they will punish Ford and add another boat anchor to the GTs for the next race.  Part of the Ford advantage is the fuel efficiency of their engine.  Twin turbo V6 versus V8.  Go Ecoboooooost!  The Ford GT is so beautiful it should be hammered to a wall in the Louvre.  I see that a Lamborghini Huracan is leading GTD.  Good for Lambo.  I had never imagined them as being successful race cars but they are proving me wrong.  I always liked their cars...

That they did.  But so did "Cadillac" LOL!  I don't know of any Cadillac sold at a dealer that looks anything like that "Cadillac."  Conversely, the Ford GT road car is very similar to the race car and has more horsepower.  The racing version had to be detuned.  Just too damned fast otherwise.  Kind of feel bad for the Corvettes.  Well not really.  LOL!
