S550 daytona update

Ok, it looks like Luka Mars will not be in the car at Daytona because of age requirements. They've let kids run before, and this kid is a jet so IDK.
My gut feeling is that since he's an American and came up through karts and Miatas they are holding him back. If he was a european kid that came up through formula Ford, it would be OK.
So there will be only 1 Gt4 Mustang out of Kohr in GS.
The other news is that it looks like Ill be working for Sun Energy / Mercedes running GTD in the 24.
Looks like tire guy is moving on up...

I ran the numbers for the GTD car, including practice and qualifying , and say.. give or take.. 1 hour fuel windows, it would be possible to go through 24 sets of tires, not including rains, you are allotted 31sets for race weekend, , and that folks is right at $100K
That is out of my budget. Have fun while you are there.
