Sportscar fans rejoice! Road Atlanta is about to host a big old bag full of fun... Starting Wednesday, 10 October at Road Atlanta about 20 miles from my home in Georgia, teams in three classes will be preparing for the 10 hour slug fest to settle the Weathertech Driver, Team and Manufacturer Championships in all three classes, Prototype, GTE/LM and GTD to be held on Saturday, 13 October, 2018. All three classes have been hotly contested all year and each race has provided fans with some of the best and closest racing seen by this writer in a very long time. Going into Saturday the first three places of all three classes are separated by less than 20 points. See Entry list HERE. See Current Standings HERE. Driver, Manufacturers and Team championship points are so tight as to make predictions foolish, I will note however: Catherine Legge in the #86 Acura NSX is red hot after her drive at VIR last month where she rocketed to within 3 points of a 3 way tie for first in GTD. I can't make a prediction in this class, but I will admit to pulling for Legge. After a first half of the season in which it looked like Chip Ganassie's Ford GTE/LM's would run away with all the titles, the Fords have cooled off quite a bit with the #67 car driven by Briscoe, Westbrook and Dixon having a less than stellar second half. Meanwhile, the North American BMW's have overcome a disastrous first half and are coming to Road Atlanta with a good bit of momentum. The Fords almost prevailed here last year, but came up short in the last 20 minutes. I would not be surprised by another BWM win this year, but, as an unabashed Ford Fan, I will be watching for a Ford championship on this track which values handling over sheer speed. Handicapping the Prototype class is REALLY difficult after watching the close hard racing in this class all season long. Perhaps its nostalgia mixed with a good dollop of jingoism, but I really would love to see Team Penskie engineer a total victory here. The action at Road Atlanta isn't limited to IMSA's premier classes however. The Continental Ti(y)re Sports Car championship will be held on Sunday, 21 October, 2018 giving us another weekend of GREAT racing. In the US these races are carried on Fox Sports, FS 1 & FS 2.
