2016 FIA WEC 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas aka Lone Star Le Mans

After J Jay's reminder (invitation?) I thought I wanted some of that evasive e-fame (woop woop!) for myself as well, so here is, without further delay, brought to you by sponsors tentenths.com and "coffee break (tm)", our WEC COTA race thread anchor.



So the FIA WEC is visiting one of the better tilkedromes (IMHO), which will throw itself at 6 P1-Hs (hi, Chiana),2 P1s, 10 P2s and 13 GTEs tagged as Pro and Am (again, hi, Chiana!) Note there's no official entry list up yet (on their own site, but look below for what they posted to twitter), but the one-off mexico entry in P2 seems gone, leaving us with 31 cars after Rebellion's cut expenses. Also with the IWTSCC running the same weekend, we'll see the seldom sight of all four Fords being at one track. Our residential Mike Hedlund will not be participating, but, conspiracy theories aside, not because WEC management is dumb as straw (for once?)

It's this beautiful track:

FRC 2016 - WEC Round 6: Lone Star Le Mans

Streaming* - Radio Le Mans (audio), FIA WEC (paywalled), there might be a non-geoblocked eurosport (german AND english, like for mexico?) stream available as well.

* more information will become available as time goes on. We hope.

Flight leaves at 6:30am tomorrow. Will be there by 11 or so. Can't wait. 40th birthday is this Friday. In total hoping for a memorable, sports car filled weekend. Last year caught pneumonia while I was there, praying to the racing gods that doesn't happen again.

Who else will be there???

Happy soon to be birthday! I will be there in spirit. Perhaps you need to have some more bbq. so as to ward off any potential ailments? Come to think of it.. that had the exact opposite effect for me back in 14.

First time to the track, going with Scott. Not a super big bbq fan, but I'll put that aside for the 400th birthday.

I'm sure you'll both have a great time. Try to take the time to walk around the track. There are plenty of good vantage points.

Would be neat if we can get some shots of WEC and IMSA cars next to each other, even if it is just in passing.

Audi a hair faster than Porsche in practice 1, now live timing for practice 2 is broken, showing only one car.

Does anyone know what happened to the #7 Audi during what I believe was FP2? There is video of it on the WEC site in which it is on track running very slowly.

Thanks!

motorsport-total.com just mentions (de) a 'defect in the drive train' without further specifics.

I checked all the stats so far even going back to the PWC race. The rank of classes from fastest to slowest at COTA right now is:

1. WEC LMP1 1 min 47
2. WEC LMP2 1 min 56
3. IMSA P 1 min 58
4. IMSA LMPC 2 min 01
5. IMSA GTLM 2 min 03
6. WEC GTE PRO 2 min 04
7. PWC GT3 (just about the same as GTE PRO) 2 min 04
8. WEC GTE AM 2 min 06
9. IMSA GTD 2 min 08 (still about 3 seconds a lap faster than GTD in 2015)

Thanks, i like to see the comparisons. Perhaps some of those numbers will drop in qualifying today.

At least Toyota is within about a second. Qualifying pace is not their forte, so hopefully it's as close or closer than Mexico was. Do imsa and wec run different start/finish lines?
