That stream will only work for international users. The official broadcast/race stream is on FS1 and Fox Sports Go. I recommend FSG. The FS1 broadcast regularly gets preempted by other sports :\ IMSA really needs stronger broadcast partners, or they need to reserve the right to broadcast themselves.

Such a hard race to watch, as a BMW fan. You'd have thought RLL would have made some progress since last year, but with the #24 car in to the tires with some kind of mechanical issue (sounds like brakes... again) and the #25 car getting driven around like it's standing still is really frustrating. The #3 Corvette passed Bill Auberlen in the esses, and you could really see the M6 GTLM all over the place, while the #3 C7.R just shot through like an arrow.

Really disappointing.

Get the imsa app and try streaming there.
Yes, hard to watch. Trying to catch Joey Hand again like Daytona.

True that. The M6 is just not competitive in GTLM. Bad choice by BMW to race an M6. You can see in the corners the body roll, looks like a big sedan rolling through twisty corners with the roll bars disconnected. When it gets to the point where a truly great and enthusiastic driver like Bill Auberlin has to mention in the TV interview that "hopefully the IMSA officials will help us out with BOP adjustments" (not a direct quote), it's time for BMW to look in the mirror for the problem.

Are we watching the same race? Im here at Sebring watching from Član and think BMW drivers are doing a respectable job.

If you consider being last respectable, ok. The only cars behind the 7th place #25 BMW have been back in the garages for service.

I love going to the races (I went to Daytona this year), but I'm not going to sugar coat it. BMW are off to another rough start.

The M6 is competitive everywhere around the world except in the US. IMSA hands out BOP under the guise of keeping things competitive. However, it appears their idea of BOP is to give Ford and Chevy a leg up on the competition, but what else would you expect with IMSA being owned by NASCAR??? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of the M6 as a race car, but I don't think the M6 is the problem here.

Yeah, I'm with you on this. I don't subscribe to the theory that the M6 GTLM is somehow a flawed racer.

Garcia has been on a mission!

How about that pass by Bleekemolen in GTD just now though!? Holy balls out! Balzan was smart not to turn down in on him, IMO. That would only lead to tears on T17.

How do you explain Ferrari and Mercedes currently leading GTD, with Mercedes coming back after decades away and Porsche always in contention? not a ford or chevy issue.

I would be very happy if Corvette won this. Anyone but Ford.

Normally I'd say anyone but Ford or Porsche, but Patrick Pilet is behind the wheel of the #911 right now, and I'm not sure I've ever met a race car driver as nice as Pilet. Maybe Augusto Farfus. Farfus is an absolute ham.

Yeah, can't say I buy the IMSA NASCAR conspiracy thing, either.

IMO, IMSA have done a pretty good job. Even with BMW's woes, they're not that far off the pace. I think they need just a small bump.

Exactly. The M6 is really not the problem here nor are the drivers. Remember, the M6 qualified p1 and p2 at Sebring last year and I believe they finished p2 with one of the cars in GTLM.
The car is doing well all around the world, even winning the 24hrs of Spa last year in its first year.
I really think IMSA needs to make further BoP adjustments for the M6 as it is just not competitive enough the way things stand currently. I'm curious to see how the M6 performs in Europe this year.

You know that BMW is viewed as a non competitor when they remove the in car stream from their site.

If you are talking about the IMSA in car live stream, that was in car #24 which had an issue and was retired early in the day

I won't get into whether the car is the problem (though not a big fan of the M6 whale) or the whole IMSA BoP is the problem. Whatever it is, the marketing effect of BMW's IMSA campaign is detrimental to the brand.... at some point somebody should question why keep doing this.
