IMSA Studying Data from Sebring Testing

The winter test at Sebring International Raceway has come and gone. Now, IMSA is analyzing the data from the two days of TUDOR United SportsCar Championship testing and other off-track activities to determine if additional balance of performance needs exist prior to the 62nd Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida on March 15.

“We’re going through the process to see if the changes we made going into the test were correct,” said Scot Elkins, IMSA vice president, competition and technical regulations. “We’re gathering all the data, and feeling pretty good about it.”

The test involved more than on-track activities. IMSA took examples of the Ford, Chevrolet and Honda Prototype (P) engines to the engine dynamometer in Concord, N.C., prior to the testing, establishing new restrictor sizes for the Daytona Prototype cars. On Monday, the Starworks Honda DP, Michael Shank Racing Ford EcoBoost DP and Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP went to the Windshear Wind Tunnel in Concord to validate the high-downforce setups that were used at the test.
