24 Hours of Daytona, Le Mans Prototype, Daytona International Speedway A Prototype Challenge 2021. Daytona Road Course. Restart Crashes
What does grant have for kratz down at turn? One? This time is he gon na go try to go around the outside, no he’s, not a little further back whoa there. We go battle for fifth in a spin, oh and contact big time contact. Oh and we were joe robillard – got into him, just as he was spun around and three or four cars involved now yeah. We were just talking about joe robillard and steven mcallier, hopefully having a good day. I think that one has come to an end with the 47 in the back and one of the junior three entries the number three involved as well. It was the 34 that had the initial spin, peter, ludwig and robillard actually up in the air. He can’t get those michelins on the ground because of the 47 motorsport entry there behind him has actually picked the rear tires up off the ground. Ludwig gets it straightened around let’s, see how that happened down on the inside brian. Oh, he wanted to go. The car in front was not. He jumped back in the throttle, made contact and when he made that contact he had to lift and as soon as he lifted that transfers weight to the front gives the front end. Good grip, the rear end comes around because you’re already compromised you’re in the corner. Already and now you’ve got you’re sitting in the mouth of the funnel, and everybody else is coming in.
Take a look tristan herbert just gets a little wiggly in the green black and white car, and when ludwig wanted to jump back in the gas, there was no place to go yeah and, like i said, with the car bound up in cornering load when he came Off the throttle that transferred weight to the front dug that right front end even more and the rear end began to step out and joe robillard not his day. We saw that smoke. I think that was just simple bottoming, but he was somewhat of an innocent bystander. There i don’t know that he could have gotten around and is the six involved as well, or is this a different problem dan goldberg’s slow there in the blue and red six robillard’s car by the way, as they try to uh figure out what’s happening with goldberg That’S in nascar one he’s down on the apron that’s where you want to be, and he had a great run going. I was real impressed dan goldberg had some great runs. Last year he started teaming with rasmus lind at sebring in the second race of the season, and they had some good good runs. I didn’t see him involved with this. I wonder if he’s got something mechanical going on as mentioning the 43 of roblard, that the cool paint scheme you see there, he is on the left in the 43, there is the 47 sitting there at brownson, but that paint scheme that’s.
Actually, you could call that a paint scheme versus a livery, because that’s a painting that robillard did himself. He says my artwork on the race car for meanwhile, seven on pit lane as well: yeah bryn olson’s, a part of it let’s, take it back from the restart to look a little bit further back, go up front. You see fourth place car, the white and green and then the red and white car and then further back so the 18 has to check up a little bit because the car in front does boom boom boom. And you see what happens there. Brynn olson was involved a little bit. I think goldberg was ahead of this yeah goldberg’s, ahead of all of that brynjolfsson’s going to get right, rear damage right there as he comes by, but it doesn’t answer what happened to dan goldberg. Taking a look fanning out. This was the restart the resumption of play going not for the lead, but back in fifth position. So the the fourth car in the sequence is gon na get have to check up right there because goldberg’s in front of him, he has to check up chain reaction, gets ludwig, and then you see it all go downhill from there yeah. What? If tristan uh checked up at all, because goldberg had some sort of issue well – and i was wondering that as well dave that’s a very valid point because herbert looked like he had to check up because perhaps the six didn’t quote go, you know he didn’t have The drive off the corner that he expected it to have and that accordion effect just kind of built through the back, and this is not the debut that alan brynjolfsson and trent hinman wanted brian.
How do uh teams look at a situation like this uh? There is a championship: it’s a six race championship, it’s, not the same level as let’s, say the oh, my goodness, and now dan goldberg is in the barrier. Hang on let’s hold that previous thought and dan’s gon na hop out yeah. This went from uh questionable to a whole lot worse and waving the crowd there. There are a few fans on the grounds today, yep he’s, looking at it like what in the world just happened. You know what and – and i love race fans they’re there to congratulate him – not giving him a hard time for some that’s right that he made on the racetrack they’re clapping for him, they’re saying good job and and they want to talk to him and sorry you’re Out he certainly had one of the most recognizable cars on the racetrack performance tech motorsports, fielding that car for dan and rasmus lind. He is the defending champion, along with matt bell in this class, but the third car in line tristan herbert a good race car driver and certainly knows the sport we’ll talk more about that in a minute. But he doesn’t know these cars, and you see ralph trying to take advantage around the outside tried to make that black and green and white 18 a little bit wide that’s going to be just enough to keep rao behind for the moment, that’s impressive right there on The part of tristan herbert this andretti autosport team and davine rao takes the one too far into the international horseshoe and takes out both himself and herbert, and that was not impressive.
We were just talking about what was well now. We can talk about what isn’t now it’s going to be difficult to get these cars back underway and had a good look at both sides of the car. Since they’ve been spinning around in circles there, they don’t seem to have a lot of damage on them. But i wonder if naveen rao’s experience allowed him to go a little deeper in the brake zone, but it the opportunity just isn’t there herbert’s already turned in to enter the corner and rao has way too much speed. I don’t think: if herbert was there, raul was going to make the corner anyway. No, no, and he wasn’t, certainly crowding the apex by any means.
