Am I the only one angry with SRT for pulling out of Le Mans?

I believe you can't be considered a serious sportscar without a serious effort to win the world's biggest sportscar race.


Le Mans should have been budgeted first, and maybe next year's effort as well, before any other races.


Massively disappointed in SRT for this decision.

Im sure Ralph is just as angry and it will be a lot less fun to watch this year for sure. Going to Le Mans is a HUGE expense for all teams compared to state side races and I suppose its just not in their budget this year.

I believe that part of this was the increased schedule of Tudor races. Maybe it was a budget decision to run all the Tudor and skip LeMans, or do the very expensive LeMans and skip some of the Tudor races. Not enough budget to do both.
