Good luck getting 12 cars in LMP1.

Are you combining the totals for GTE-Pro and GTE-Am?

yep 12 in each class would be great but having 4 classes in the race means that in those years that one class is thin on the ground then the field can still be full.

I demanded 30 LMP1 doing 3:12s in Le Mans and 30 GT1 on 3:37 , if we donīt have them by end of 2018 they arenīt listening the fans.

And the Targa Florio

There's no point in having 4 classes in a 30-car grid.

Fair play to them for putting the survey out there. Thought it was interesting they asked specifically about Adelaide, a race in Australia would be fantastic rather than racing in Shanghai with 6 people watching trackside and unsociable tv hours for us in Europe & the states anyway, if China haven't embraced the WEC now I don't think they ever will, so time to move on! 6 races with varied race lengths please & a Le Mans finale

Check the attendance figures for Shanghai. It's actually pretty high. And when they show the stands, there's so many of them (like COTA), you would have trouble filling them all even if F1 is in town. There's talk about a Chinese manufacturer joining the lmp1 ranks with DC racing. If that happens, Shanghai really isn't going anywhere

Doesn't the government plummet the costs of tickets to get butts in seats at Shanghai?

There were two questions that raised an eyebrow....

1) 6h Sochi being on the list of possible future events to 'vote' for. No thanks.

2) 'Should DPi replace LMP1' Surprised at such frankness in an ACO survey.

I would imagine the reason some tracks have WEC races is the same as other series, they are being tendered out by the WEC organisers to the highest bidders.

Every sport these days is trying to be like the Olympics and take the sport to new areas. But this is mainly due to them bidding more and being sought out by aggressive series marketeers pushing for more money from tourist boards.

It can work with some racing, notably MotoGP where the huge funding given to the Asian scene is seeing huge crowds in places like Malaysia and Thailand, simply because there are riders involved and they have won races.

But going to China with WEC seems great on paper. Until you realise there is no real interest. It's the same as F1 going to Korea, India, Singapore. The crowd at Singapore is largely ex pats as it is for MotoGP in Qatar and F1 in Abu Dhabi.

Nothing wrong with that, but to hide it behind a veneer of spreading the word is wrong, for a series that struggles to engage anything more than a few thousand uber fans other than for once a year, they need to go where there is support. The series, especially now, is struggling as it is, so spreading wings is not the thing to do right now

A lot of pointless questions I think. The survey was too large. They are going to get junk answers to a lot of them.

I think the big question was which class interests you the most. I responded with GTE pro.

Thought the survey was good. Anytime we can be heard - that's a good thing. Liked the questions on classes and tracks. Also there were questions with free text responses. I too would like Adelaide. My favourite is GTE Pro but something has to be done to move away from BOP - but not sure how. The cache is with the LMP1 hybrids - but the 2020 rules are contrived. They had it right for 2014.
