If you thought you could take a break from the cruel, unfair realities of this world with a nice day of racing, just remember: Everything is terrible, and there is no justice or fairness in this world. Case in point, the No. 82 Risi Competizione Ferrari just got taken out of Le Mans by an absolutely stupid avoidable…
For many fans, GTLM is our favorite class in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, with all the major factory teams. Hopefully you’re not a Ford or Ferrari fan today, as both Fords, the lone Ferrari, one Porsche and one Corvette were all involved in a first turn pileup that forced them back in for repairs.
