I'm glad it had the attendance but I thought that was a snooze. That was probably the least amount I watched that race ever.

I'm confused by the GTD cars being faster than GTD PRO. Don't really care at all about LMP2 anymore. LMP3 is a joke.

Yeah kind of crazy, they end up racing each other.
Same car specs, tires and everything, between the classes. The GTD must have amateur but can have a mix of amateur and pro, vs all pro allowed in the GTDP.
I'm sure they will make it more confusing for me next year.

I have never been into the "spec racing" LMP classes either.

BoP regulations were at fault for the lackluster fight for overall. I don't really blame them though, so many unknowns going into new GTP class. 12hr Sebring will be closer up front with some BoP changes.
