View Poll Results: Where will the WEC US round 2017 be held?
Circuit of the Americas (early September? with PCW?) 17 36.96%
Indy - plenty of history and, more importantly, plenty of run off 6 13.04%
Montreal - close enough to the US border and would serve US N-E audience very well 8 17.39%
Road America - the only right choice but lots of 'upgrading' to do to please the FIA blue blazers 7 15.22%
no US (or Canadian) round at all - the WEC doesn't need a race there anyway... 6 13.04%
somewhere else in North or South America (Brazil???) 2 4.35%

I love the idea, but I'm not sure how this will work. The qualifying race idea seems good on the surface but how do you transition a car from a sprint format to an endurance format the next day.

Perhaps the idea is a round on the WEC schedule that is just GTE only. It can be a 3 or 4 hour race too. To help the grid numbers maybe the ELMS GTE AM and GT3 Le Mans cup teams can be invited too.

A possibility could be running in US a race combined with the IMSA GTLM-GTD field.

Seeing that at Lime Rock would be fantastic! But some drivers/team members so double-duty so I don't know how that would work.

4 BMWs, 2 Corvettes, 4 Fords, 4 Porsches, 3 Ferraris, 2 Astons.

30 cars at Spa, including a Chandhok driven Ligier lmp2 and Rossiter stays in the CLM through Le Mans. They also should introduce new front bodywork the article says. Good for them because he was easily their fastest driver in both qualifying and the race.

WEC Magazin explains why the #7 Toyota didn't get 4th in class points at Silverstone: the ACO changed the rules to make manufacturers' points reflect WEC LMP1/2 drivers' points.

Some random talk relating to F1. I was watching the "the inside line" today and they showed the budgets of the F1 teams, concerning last year.

Ferrari was said to have spent 380m euros, Mercedes 310 or 320m euros, Red Bull some 250m(I think, don't remember too well after Mercedes), Mclaren some 210m. Teams like Williams were spending the level of the VAG LMP1s, ie, 150m.

That's why it shouldn't be too difficult for WEC to attract the likes of Peugeot and etc. They can spend "only" 100-150m euros and have a reasonable shot at winning LM and the championship. The marketing won't be as big as with F1 but car purchasers will eventually know about it, even if they don't follow the series.
