Johnny O’Connell: Lime Rock Debrief at SPORTSCAR365.com

PRINT PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE STAFF June 7, 2017GT Class, Series News, SprintX

I wonder if I’m the only one getting tired of all the red flags. Beginning at Virginia International Raceway, I can only recall one Sprint X session that was not red flagged due to someone falling off and wrecking.

My personal feelings are that at this level, those days of falling off should be behind a driver. The track time, which is already limited, that gets lost, affects everyone’s plans.

In my case, once again, like at both Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and VIR, I went into qualifying without getting to drive the car for more than a lap or two prior to the session to set the grid.

As you can guess I’m more than frustrated at how things have gone so far with this formula. It’s not the series’ fault, but drivers who are behaving like it’s a video game – just my personal feelings.
