...especially when that overall leader was essentially fabricated using the rulebook. A tube-frame prototype with crude 1970s aerodynamics crushing the lap times of a modern, CFD- and wind-tunnel-honed, carbon-fiber, monocoque prototype? Get outta here with that. I'd almost go so far as to say it's disrespectful to the history of endurance racing.

They better fix the balance of performance quick or they're going to lose the ALMS audience.
