ESM Nissan Onroak DPi Revealed; Testing Begins - Sportscar365

"While designed by the Onroak, the bodywork features specific styling cues to the Nissan GT-R, where the car also gains its 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo powerplant from.

"It is the third DPi to officially break cover, following reveals from both Cadillac and Mazda, which will join the customer-based ESM effort on the grid next month alongside Gibson-engined LMP2 cars in the Prototype class."

Thanks @nanxun for posting not just today's info/pic but also previous ones in this thread. As the risk of offending some (not my intent), this DPi is as attractive at the GT-R from which is "modeled," e.g. not!

Whereas both the Cadillac and the Mazda DPi have a consistent brand theme side to side, front to back, etc., this one looks like a bunch of cobbled parts from tens of different sources/brands. I know it is a race car, but many race cars are not just terrific on the track, but they also look terrific. Not, IMO, this one.

To their credit, IMSA is allowing the cars to not look like they're running in a spec series. To ESM's credit, this is the third chassis in two years.

First look: Mazda shows off 2017 prototypes ahead of IMSA test | Autoweek

"The No. 55 features Mazda’s Soul Red color, as has become tradition, while the No. 70 will carry another Mazda cornerstone in Machine Grey."

Daytona Friday Notebook - Sportscar365

***Both Mazda RT24-Ps struggled on Friday, with the No. 55 car stopping on track with suspected electrical issues, prior to suspension problems halting the No. 70 entry later in the afternoon. Jonathan Bomarito recorded the quickest time for the car, a 1:40.830, in the second session, after both cars missed nearly the entire morning.

Daytona Sunday Notebook - Sportscar365

***While DragonSpeed ended the Roar with the quickest time, it was the No. 55 Mazda RT24-P that was quickest in the speed traps, with Jonathan Bomarito clocked at 197.1 mph in Session 6. It was some 2.8 mph quicker than the next-quickest prototype entry, the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Ligier JS P217 Gibson.

Of course, all with caveats due to sand-bagging....

Take A Walk Around Mazda's Newest, Fastest Race Car At Daytona

"We wanted to find out more about Mazda’s brand-new RT24-P race car, so we handed a mic to Mazda North America Director of Motorsports John Doonan to explain everything that went into it."

Also, unconfirmed reports that another manufacturer--Honda?--will be fielding entries in IMSA's DPi class later this year....

***IMSA VP of Competition Simon Hodgson hinted during a press conference that a fourth DPi manufacturer is in the pipeline, although would not provide additional details. It’s believed Honda is finalizing plans for a potential end-of-year debut, although HPD Team Leader Allen Miller told Sportscar365 that a decision has not yet been made.
