    For Risi, they got screwed over. Last year they were on the pace of the M8 GTE and perfectly fair, yet for this season they worsened the Ferrari despite the M8 being the benchmark.
    IMSA was very generous for Daytona. BMW had complained about unfair BoP after their debut with the M8, both in WEC and IMSA. Now they left WEC and IMSA is afraid that they'll be leaving that championship as well. Just speculating ofc.The advantage was so clear, the BMWs were on another level. Of course Tandy and Bamber fighting a bit towards the end of the race didn't help with catching the BMW but even if they had not fought they wouldn't have been able to catch up.
    Risi were complaining as well last year, and I was actually surprised to see them again among the entries because they actually said they were leaving IMSA for continuously getting bad BoP's.

    NASCAR needs to figure something out here. The Busch Clash was a Busch Disaster.

    18 of 18 entrants crashed. 18 of 18 cars need at least a rebuild if not written off.

    The pot: Around a million dollars.
    The estimated cost of the wrecked cars alone (aside from track crews and the teams having to work on them or ship in new backups): 4mil 950thou.

    This isn't anywhere close to sustainable, even if it does just happen on plate tracks.

    Now we get this madness Thursday and Sunday or we get the single file line of death for 4 hours. Nobody wins, here.


    Looking forward to buying the Erik Jones Clash Winner diecast though.

    The SCG 007 Hypercar is looking really sharp! That wheelbase, though.

    More from Scuderia Glickenhaus. This time with the successor of the SCG 003C, the 004C which will be competing in the NLS (former VLN) and the N24 in SPX class with a possible GT3 homologation in the future. Looks and sounds really awesome!

    SCG had some strong words to say about Aston Martin the other day as well, and to be honest I completely agree with them.
