Road racing needs to become more simple verses more expensive and complicated. 

With fields getting smaller and marketing being cut due to the virus we need to get back to the basics. 

I would love to see more focus on production based cars of volume. No more build a few and limited availability.

I'm going to disagree with hyperv6 on this. I feel racing should be the test-bed/development for future technologies. Although this doesn't sound like future tech - it sounds like a more interesting version of what's in my wife's plug-in hybrid.

They had a great idea with switching the top class to hypercars from prototype, but why in the world would they then sandbag it with ridiculous rules like this?? I don’t understand the folks coming up with class regulations.
