This should be rather interesting to see how close to right they can get this marriage right out of the box. Will definitely be continuing to follow this series(s) as the season begins. Bound to be plenty to talk about Very Happy

Indeed.

24h predictions, I think all these are pretty safe:
-The Fords and the Mazdaiesel go kablamo before sunset
-One of the rooks takes out a good car in their first stint
-A PC car gets upside down
-Fehan chucks his headset after a DP 'vette gets into one of his cars

Turns out, the Mazda Prototype cars are only marginally faster than the GX car.  They both qualified slower than EVERYTHING else, including all the GT cars.

Yikes, they've got some real work to do. Also interesting to see the Vipers up top in GT.

One of the previews I read, the Mazda guy was saying they've got the diesel engine tuned pretty soft so that they can debug the rest of the car.

Barely faster than the GX diesel is still not that good.

At least partial credit on both of the first two.  No
