    Donington Park will host the British round of the Le-Mans Series in 2012.

    I was wondering the same. Is LMS becoming the FIA World Endurance Championship? Or will they be separate series?

    As far as I can tell, they will be separate. Maybe some races are shared by both series?

    They should have an end-of-season face off. Top 5 or 6 teams from each series race for an overall champion.

    LMS and Alms remain the same, LMS boots lmp1's and introduces GTC for Carrera Cup and Ferrari Challenge cars, i believe. ILMS becomes WEC

    The ELMS might die this year, last I heard there were only 20 entrants for the first round at Paul Ricard. WEC seems to have taken all the best team/driver combos with it
