absolutely not. the world series by renault binned ricard off for le mans this season, and the idea of being in the damp concrete monstrosity that is le mans without the 24 hours (you know it's true) instead of the lovely warm, breezy, bright paul ricard is really not putting a spring in anybody's step.

zolder is fine for little cars, but anything bigger than a two litre formula renault or a touring car just seems a little awkward out in the trees. and if they'd just put moats with crocodiles and 3 foot metal spikes instead of tarmac runoffs or whatever everyone wants at spa then it'd be back in fashion again.

spa > zolder. it's an great calendar. only someone with a screw loose would rather race at zolder than spa.

I'd go for that, hell reincarnate Nivelles and have three rounds in Belgium and I'm not going to grumble.

I've never been to Ricard, but I've never considered Le Mans a damp concrete monstrosity. And on TV, Le Mans is far far better to look at than the horrific Gran Turismo test track.

Like you I've always wondered if Zolder would really take LMP2s well.

have you been to le mans for a non-24 hours event? it's pretty grim, especially nowadays when a lot of the main circuits have been refreshed in terms of pit buildings and stands. ricard is a very pleasant place to spend a few days, even the depths of winter are british summer time calibre...

i don't think the foresty bit at zolder would handle the constant lapping involved in elms races. not with 30 cars on track.

10 years ago Belcar did just fine with 40+ cars and a field that included everything from GT1-Corvettes to 2-Liter-BMWs... Now, a P2 is a bit faster than the old GT1s, so things would be slightly different, but with Zolder being very Start-Stop and having not much in the way of fast sweepers, even that advantage could be relatively small.

Hmm well it's promising when teams are looking to expand and not disappearing into thin air.

One reduction to next year's car count: As S365 reports, “Marc VDS Racing Team Ceases Car Racing Activities.”

I would have been surprised to see them continue in the ELMS next season anyway but still a shocking and bizar move!

Still hope Bas Leinders finds another good position - and perhaps a few of his former co-workers can join him there?

So it seems that LMP3 and GT3 classes will increase in size, GTE around the same level (we lose VDS but gain Beechdean).


Id replace Paul Ricard with Magny Cours!

Olivier Panis is looking at setting up an ELMS team, running in P2 and possibly P3 with a Le Mans entry as well.

He [Panis] explained that he would link up with an existing team for next year rather than starting his own operation from scratch, while stressing that it would be from France.
Any suggestions on who that team might be?
