I don't like taking sides before an event. I just want to see a great race and have plenty to write about at the end of it. But I really want an LMP2 car to win the Daytona 24 Hours this weekend.
That's not because I favour any of the teams running P2 machinery, nor any of their drivers, rather because I believe it would be good for sportscar racing.
The Tudor United SportsCar Championship is heading towards the adoption of a new and as-yet-undetermined set of LMP2 regulations for 2017. A victory for a P2 car over the Daytona Prototypes would surely help fix the USC and its sanctioning body, IMSA, on that course.
