OK here is the horses mouth IMSA. See my note below.
Sirs:
I was deeply disappointed to see that after many years of traditionally including Historic/Vintage racing on the 12 Hour schedule, they are not included.
I have for many years driven those support races as well as taken part in the downtown faux tech and drivers parties at the Sebring center.
I have seen fans very supportive of being able to see the older cars off of the mainstream. They usually mention "I use to own one of those". Once after a spin they offered me food and drink at the fence. They definitely come out for more than just the "Big Show", they also enjoy the opening acts. For some, Sebring 12 Hours is the only race they will attend. It is there yearly vacation.
The drivers as well appreciate the opportunity to race in front of such a large crowd, many who may not have the chance to witness the older cars anywhere else.
For me the Historics were my one "Fun" race after a season of serious racing elsewhere. A chance to be a participant in a big show, not just a busy owner/driver chasing a podium finish.
I have talked to many fans and drivers on many different websites that are very upset with this  development.  They wonder just when IMSA started to forget about the racers and the fans in exchange for a better financial arrangement. It's been said all IMSA cares about is the money. If this is so, I will be happy to launch a worldwide boycott of IMSA events throughout the internet. Perhaps the loss of that income will prod you into reconsideration of a very bad decision. It's going to be a long year.
Regards, D.C.Fresch
I will be sending this out as well as flooding websites with it.
If this means anything to you at all. I suggest you use my note as a template and send IMSA a missive declaring your displeasure and intention to boycott the events.
This has been degrading since the end of ALMS.

I am currently doing some research for an article on the 1965 Sebring 12 Hour race. This is the race that Chaparral won and also the race that had the deluge of 5 inches of rain that flooded the track. If you were at that event I would like to talk (interview) you about your remembrances of that event. Please let me know if you are interested. You can email me at: louisgalanos@gmail.com

This group is great!

I thought you Vintage Car fans might be interested to learn that our film production produced a TV-series called GT-RACER, featuring races from around the world. We have some great footage of races like the Nurburgring, Laguna Seca, Spa, Silverstone, Lime Rock and the Porto's Street Circuit!

GT-RACER is now out on DVD. You can see trailers on the director's page on the VRL here:
http://www.myvrl.com/profile/AlexanderDavidis

Also, make sure you check out Shaken & Stirred, a Cinema Verite Documentary devoted to classic Aston Martin racing at Spa!

You can also order the DVDs here:
http://www.spiritlevelfilm.com/shop/product.php?productid=16159&cat=248&utm_source=jgfilm&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=gtracer

For VRL members we put in a great discount that you get by entering this discount code: "JGFILM"

Hopefully we get some feedback how you liked the films.
We have a group on the VRL to discuss them that is here:

Best Wishes from John Galt Films

Comment by Dennis Gray on June 14, 2009 at 5:16pm
The focus of the latest issue on the 1957 Aston Martin DBR1, Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori combined with Casey's editorial on Braun GP all combine to make a winner of a magazine. Ad Pete Lyon's input, what else do you need? Of course they occasionally publish my images so maybe I may be a little prejudice? Still a good read if not the best American vintage publication.
