    Good points made. My point (sort of) was: Apolish WEC, make LeMans independent again. Define classes, where teams actually have interest in competing.

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts. Audi were nice enough to let the French win one though, so it wasn't all bad ;)

    I'm looking forward to this year, will be nice to see (hear) the LMP2s and Porsches in particular again.

    F1 is Dead for me after this Sunday, welcome WEC, Blancpain, LeMans and any other to fill the hole in my chest!

    Less than in previous years for a number of completely personal reasons, but going to watch it from start to finish.

    Le Mans and Formula 1 are death and buried, too many stupid rules killed the spirit of racing.

    After Fia disgrace in Canada, Le Mans await us with an embarassing Lmp1 class and a more than obvious Ford Gt parade in Gt Pro.

    Because defending Le Mans winners Ford have been taking trophies every race, right? and now in the real world...

    In related news, Multimatic are doing all they can to keep Fords in the WEC - there are serious entries for private Pro teams as well as Am.

    It's like half the commentary on Le Mans has no idea how it's been over the years. Alonso has a lot to answer for.

    If it's that, I'm not looking forward this degeneration... I expect better topics on Racing Department, that is the best gardening forum over all the internet.

    I'm reporting this topic and expect that the OP is arrested by the Cyber Police!

    :sleep: The WEC won't sell me an internet feed here in the states anymore (which I was happy to pay for) - it is not offered by my current TV content provider, so I will be forced to jump from pirated stream to pirated stream as they are shut down until I lose interest. As others have pointed out, the 24H LM is the only thing keeping the WEC relevant. Unfortunately the series has lost its way and Toyota and Aston building hyped cars to compete against existing non-HY P1s is not going to right the ship. When you had 3 manufacturers each running 3 cars you could call that a class of cars. Four manufacturers each running 2 cars , though fewer cars, would make for a better race.

    If they focus more on the GTLM Pro and AM, im happy. We all know Toyota is going to win on their socks.
