2017 Shakedown Racing Endurance Tipping Competition

Round Ten: Motul Petit Le Mans




And so we come to the final round of the 2017 IMSA Weathertech championship season. A year that has since significant change in the championship especially in the protoype ranks. We have seen a lot of very good racing from all classes and now it comes down to this the annual ten hour endurance race held on the famed Road Atlanta road course near Atlanta Georgia.

One entry you won’t find on the entrylist is that of Team Penske and their Oreca LMP2. The biggest story in the prototype ranks this year even in a year of big news, the return of the Captain and his team has been warmly welcomed by fans and the organisation alike. With a crew of Juan Pablo Montoya, Simon Pagenaud and Helio Castroneves, this entry serves as a warm up for next year when Penske joins forces with Acura to challenge the likes of Cadillac, Nissan and Mazda in the prototype class. Mazda are missing from the race as they regroup for next year with Joest and no doubt they will return in force. Swiss privateers Rebellion return with one car in Prototype as does Land Motorsport in GTD with an Audi R8 LMS keeping alive the tradition of European teams making the one off journey to this race.

In the championship points hunt the Taylor brothers Ricky and Jordan have a firm grasp on the Prototype championship so can go into the race without worrying about the crown as it already is decided. In GTLM its a bit closer with the Corvette duo of Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen hold a nineteen point lead over the Ford pairing of Richard Westbrook and Ryan Briscoe with the BMW drivers Alexander Sims and Bill Auberlen only one point behind them. The class has thrown up some thrilling finishes at this track so who knows what will happen both in the race and in the championship. In GTD the reigning champions Christina Nielsen and Alessandro Balzan of Scuderia Corsa only have to finish the race to defend their title.

So for this round we are tipping in two classes Prototype and GTLM

One point is given for accurately tipping the outright pole winner which will be a Prototype car

And one point is given for tipping a top three position within the top three

or

Two points for an exact finishing position within the top three

FOR EACH CLASS Protoype and GTLM


So with that in mind a perfect score would gather thirteen points.

Cutoff time for the weekend’s tips is 7:20am Saturday morning AEST

Race start is 2.05am AEST Sunday morning

Good luck everyone! Enjoy the race

Round Ten: Petit Le Mans results

Where is everyone? With five entries including myself the entry list was reminiscent of Nations Cup in its dying days.

No one tipped Juan Pablo Montoya for pole and thus we had four co winners for this round.

Goat69: 2 points
James3592: 2 points
Maverick: 2 points
Porsche 91722: 2 points
Richo: 1 point

So many congrats to Goat, James, Maverick and Porsche

Next round is Round Eleven at the Six Hours of Fuji which is actually this weekend coming so I'll put that up tonight when I get home from work
