  1. It seems like ages since the first race at Daytona, but this weekend it is the second round of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship. After going in at the deep end with 24 Hours at round 1, it should be a breeze for the GTD spec Lexus with only 12 hours to complete at Sebring! Not really of course; aside from the regular hazards of endurance racing, the Sebring track is notoriously harsh and they'll need to ride like an LS400 if they aren't to be shaken to bits. Plus of course, the ambient temperature will be higher than they were at Daytona but it won't necessarily be any drier! American team 3GT Racing will again be running two Lexus RC-F GT3, hopefully boosted by a change in their Balance Of Perfomance figures. So while they must carry 10kg more ballast they will gain 2mm on their intake restrictors and they will refuel quicker thanks to a 2mm larger filler restrictor. In addition, their fuel capacity has been increased by 2 litres, which doesn't sound much but could mean an extra lap on track just when you need it. You can read a testing report here (with some nice shots of the RC-F): http://www.sportscarillustrated.com/News_2017/C/news17C_0214_IMSA_Sebring_Test_Lexus.html For Twitterers, 3GT Racing is here: https://twitter.com/3GT_Racing?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Race start is at 10:40 a.m. on Saturday local time. Streaming coverage should be available at: http://imsatv.imsa.com Elsewhere, exciting news that Emil Frey (they of the XK8 GT3 cars) and Farnbacher Racing (already experienced with the RC-F elsewhere) will each be entering an RC-F each into the GT Open Series in Europe. GT Open is a lower-key but still international GT series; I've watched quite a bit of it in the past but it always feels one step down from the Blancpain Series, just a little bit disappointing. However, it is a start for Lexus on the European tour and the effort should benefit from the associated Farnbacher work in the VLN (big domestically but not known much outside Germany) and from the two-heads-are-better-than-one of two experienced teams.
