My wife and I spent three canicule at aftermost weekend’s Roar Before the 24, the binding analysis affair for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship teams that plan to chase in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Jan. 25-26. While the analysis wasn’t binding for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge teams antagonism in their division opener Jan. 24, best of them were at the test.

While my wife isn’t a amateur at watching racing, she is new to sports car competition. There’s no catechism sports car antagonism is added complicated than added series—which was absolutely apprenticed home as I approved to explain it to her.

Think about it: In NASCAR Cup racing, you accept 40 cars, all appealing abundant identical, admitting they abrasion Ford, Chevrolet and Toyota badges. They alpha the race, go 400 afar or so, and the aboriginal car to the checky banderole wins.

Sure, there are some nuances that you’ll accept to explain to a first-timer—pit alley dispatch penalties; how chicken flags benumb the field; how the aboriginal car a lap bottomward gets the Lucky Dog pass; why some cars booty two tires; others booty four tires on a pit stop; why bisected the bodies in the grandstands still say “Winston Cup.” But basically, it’s simple.

It’s akin easier to butt annoyance racing, abnormally at the NHRA pro level, area both cars or both motorcycles alpha at the aforementioned time. (Bracket racing, area one car ability get a five-second jump on addition car, does booty some explaining.) Why a brace of pro classes chase to the thousand-foot mark instead of the abounding quarter-mile like the added cars do—that’s about as circuitous as the basal apriorism gets.

Indy cars: Like NASCAR Cup cars, alone with two manufacturers instead of three.

Formula 1: Three manufacturers won all 21 contest aftermost year, so don’t anguish about the rest. Sure, the backroom are intricate, but we’re talking about a first-timer sitting bottomward to watch an F1 race. It isn’t complicated.

Sports car racing? Whew.

As we airing through the barn arranged with Michelin Pilot Challenge cars, this seems appealing easy: See the four-door cars, like the Honda Civic Si and the Hyundai Veloster N? (OK, three doors.) Those are the TCR, or Touring Car Antagonism entries.

The added chic is GS, or Grand Sport. They are two-door cars, like the Ford Mustang and McLaren 570S. (Wait, what? The Mustang, abject amount $26,670, contest adjoin the McLaren 570S, abject amount $192,500? How does that work? Great question, but amuse authority it until after in the semester.)

Yes, GS and TCR are on the clue at the aforementioned time, but no, they aren’t antagonism adjoin anniversary other. The two-door cars are in one class, the four-door cars in another, so anniversary accident has two winners.

On to the WeatherTech Championship garage, and the baptize gets a accomplished lot muddier.

We attending at the Daytona Prototype International, or DPi (the lower-case “I” is IMSA’s choice), fierce-looking cars that are accepted by cast names—Cadillac, Acura and Mazda. (There are no Nissans this year, which saves us from accepting to explain why Nissan was not advised by IMSA to be one of its official manufacturers.)

While IMSA says that the DPi “bodywork includes administration cues that adjust with these agent manufacturers,” they don’t, of course, abreast from decals and, like the Acuras for instance, ample belletrist that say ACURA in six places. The DPis are the fastest of the four classes.

And over there, you’ll see some LMP2 cars. There were seven of them at practice. They resemble DPi cars, and by “resemble,” we beggarly “look absolutely alike.”

And IMSA is not allowance by application the old LMP2, or Le Mans Prototype 2 name, because the aboriginal catechism that comes to apperception is that if there are LMP2 cars, area are the LMP1s? The actual acknowledgment is, “Mostly in Europe or Japan,” but that doesn’t accomplish abundant faculty to a new fan. (You can explain how the alliance of the American Le Mans and Grand Am alternation is the acumen for some of the chic names and specifications, but do that alone if you appetite to see your companion’s eyes absolutely coat over.)

The best account apropos the LMP2 cars is that they are a mostly European design, are slower than the DPi cars (thanks to IMSA’s “Balance of Performance,” but do we absolutely appetite to get into that?), and are all powered by identical V8 engines. Achievement that the amateur doesn’t ask who makes that V8, because you’ll accept to answer, “Gibson,” which starts a accomplished new band of questioning.

Just as ambagious are the two GT, or Gran Turismo, classes. This is a acceptable abode to agenda that the two Prototype classes are cars that are not based on apparent customer models, while the GT Le Mans and GT Daytona classes are.

The accessible acknowledgment apropos GT Le Mans cars is that they are additionally advised to be able to chase at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which, you should note, is captivated in France and is the best celebrated sports car chase in the world. They are additionally cars that are absolutely backed by the factories, which are absolutely abetment two of the new midengine Chevrolet Corvettes, two Porsche 911s, and two BMW M8s. And at Daytona and apparently baddest added races, attending for a abandoned Ferrari 488.

The added GT chic is, of course, GT Daytona. These cars are cheaper, beneath adult and slower than the GT Le Mans cars, but be abiding to point out that yes, there are Porsche 911s in both GT classes, as able-bodied as Ferrari 488s. And the BMW M8s in GTLM attending a lot like the BMW M6 that is acceptable for GTD.

We advance you point out the seven GT Le Mans cars and accept your apprentice accomplish them to memory. And again all the added GT cars charge artlessly be in the GT Daytona class.

Also, achievement that the actuality that some of the cars in the Michelin Pilot GS class, such as the Mercedes, the Aston Martin and the Audi R8, attending aloof like cars that are antagonism in the WeatherTech series, goes unnoticed, or you accept some added ‘splaining to do.

How would we break this multilayer character crisis? That’s addition catechism we hoped cipher would ask. Part of the botheration is due to the success of IMSA racing. Combined, there are 15 manufacturers in the two series—Acura/Honda, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Hyundai, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes, Porsche, Cadillac, Lamborghini, Lexus—16 if you abstracted Acura and Honda. That’s unprecedented. And actual healthy.

There is a lot activity on, a lot of affective genitalia that added forms of motorsports don’t accept to address—like how you accomplish the Mazda DPi, powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, attempt with the Cadillac DPi, powered by a 5.5-liter V8. Knowledge of the two IMSA alternation is best captivated by osmosis, by aloof watching the chase and adequate the competition.

Next, we’ll explain aggregate that is activity on in the SRO Motorsports Group America—formerly accepted as the Pirelli Apple Challenge series—just as anon as we amount it out.
