    How can you legitimately keep a straight face calling a DP a "Corvette"?

    I can't. I just searched the word "Corvette" on that PDF. It just means "a vehicle I hope will defeat a different vehicle that doesn't say Corvette". It's incredibly shallow but it gives me a reason to care about the DPs, which I didn't have before, in addition to letting them not look like dog shit. I'm sure that was the entire point of the Corvette DP program, and, for me at least, it worked.

    I'm reading some grumbling around the 'net about GM not releasing a customer C7. Might help their "we're a real sportscar!" image if they did just what the Porkas do. Might not.
    Whoomah!

    I wonder who is grumbling... C7.R's sold to customer in Europe, pending approval to allow them to run in GTE-AM... seems they are available, to the right people.

    How can they run in GTE-AM with a brand new car? AM needs to be a year old homologation, does it not?

    I guess they were focusing on the US market?

    GTE-Am class regulations prohibit current model year cars, although Porsche’s 911 RSR, which received significant end-of-season updates, will be allowed to race in both GTE-Pro and GTE-Am next year since the car raced in that spec in 2013.
    Translation: They put new updates on their old car, so technically it's still an old car even if it's just like the new car?

    Am I the only one that didn't know about the new "slow zone" rules?

    http://sportscar365.com/wec/new-safe...mans-revealed/

    The French organizers revealed plans Friday for a new “slow zone” procedure, where only one section of the 8.5-mile circuit would be put under caution. However, unlike local yellows, cars would be not be allowed to exceed 60 kph in the designated zone.

    Lots of "if"s and "could"s in that article.

    Were the ACO to allow that it'd open a massive can of worms for everyone else in AM running year old homologations.
