I agree we don’t need any more prototypes in the field, and we certainly don’t need any more amateur drivers, but I understand why IMSA is doing this.  Their fields have shrunk dramatically the last year or two, and they’re trying to pad them out to keep the on track racing exciting.  I really wish they would find a Read more

Uhh, yeah no.  Granted I would love to watch that as a separate series, but having anything close to the cars you listed on track with any car currently in IMSA would be a disaster.  The speed differential would be enormous, and it’s already dangerously large between the top prototype and bottom GTD classes.  We don’t Read more

I don’t think kinja allows embedding from that video source, so it’s not so much ‘want’ as ‘can’t’... but some creative writing and fudging of that fact by Liz gets around it. Read more

sale and leaseback is enormously common as a way to boost your balance sheet on paper (vs in reality) because the building goes from being a non-liquid asset to being a monthly expense that can be walked away from.

Well, for starters, I would turn around and find another way. It’s not like you’re just driving along, minding your own business, when a crowd of protesters magically appears out of nowhere and starts pounding on your windows.  Read more
