According to Sweet Peet, GT1 in the American Le Mans Series will be a cakewalk for the Corvettes, so why not let them run wide-open and unrestricted at a couple of events? Instead of the damped-down configuration that still sent Aston home with its tail between its legs, not to return to the series, stonking 900hp machines could mix it up with the LMP cars. Peet thinks it'd be fun to watch and good for ticket sales. On the other hand, it does have a whiff of admitting that no matter what, the mighty screaming yellow zonkers will stomp anyone. Then again, that's what they do. But heck, we all know Audi's gonna win LMP1, wo why not let them run balls-out, too? For that matter, why not allow Can Am-spec 917s to run?
