Guys,

Check out the move the Ferrari put on the Porsche on the last lap. Some think it was dirty driving, but I think it was just good hard racing.

Got to make them as wide as you can at the end... :p

Not that hard of a hit... "just a little paint.... there we go all better now".

I say that's racing... he could have leaned back on him... But he chose not to.

At least he didn't do a pit maneuver on him like that NASCAR race in Mexico recently... Scott Pruett is his team mate even... :rolleyes:

Rubbin's racin! Looked like the dude put a hell of move on the Porsche. To bad so sad! :thumbsup: It wouldn't have been that close if the Porshe driver hadn't messed up on that one turn close to the start of the last lap.

Guess I'm the only one who thinks it was a chicken-poop move by the Ferrari? He pushed the Porsche out to the K-wall. Poor guy driving the Porsche was looking at concrete or lift.

Sorry, I'm all for great finishes but leaning on a guy out to the barricade isn't my version of racing him to the stripe. YMMV.

I agree, however, the Porsche driver made the errors that cost him the race. He slid through one corner scrubbing speed and allowing the Ferrari to catch up in the first place, then took the wrong line on that last turn, allowing the Ferrari to the inside. The Porsche driver was simply out-driven on that last lap!

The P-car did a whale of a job passing a faster car leading up to the last corner IMHO. Problem is on that last corner he HAD to take the outside to try and kill he F-driver's line out of the corner. Give the F-car the outside and it's checkmate IMHO. That F-car owned him on the straights.

I can't really see what else the P-car could have done, I would have never guessed IMSA would let that rough stuff fly. Either way, nice to see a close finish for a change!!
