Osella should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
thoroughly enjoyed both days - was it just me or were there no working position lights on the P2 cars in the WEC race?

I think you're right the P2 lights weren't working.

It was interesting to see them change. You could see position lights change at specific parts of the track. One was on the exit of Village where I saw these change for the odd overtake and during the pit stops cycling through. The other was the finish line where I saw the GTE Am lights update on the last lap!

My only suggestion is to pick your 20, maybe 30 best. Then, crop to highlight these shots.

Here are some of my favorites...

10, 15, 18, 20, 21 and 77. A lot of great photos for those waiting to see the new WEC season begin.

Thanks!

Thanks CyberMotor. I agree, being selective isn't my strong point!

Actually they were - but were very dim or the wrong hue or something, but they were actually working.

Re the change in TV commentary team, I am probably getting 5 from adding 2 and 2, but I thought there were several references from Hindy on the radio commentary to the coverage being 'independent', maybe the WEC want TV commentary that is less 'independent', I'd be surprised if they like opinions like Hindy's on the change in LMP2 regs being aired.

Hindy was taking some swipes at DriveTribes the other week and referencing his decision to leave the WEC.

https://twitter.com/specutainment/st...81229883674624

There was a big tirade about them 'stealing' their VLN feed, only to be told it was actually a legit deal done with VLN - obviously without their knowledge. Bit awkward.

Wait, even I knew about this - in fact, I looked it up when RLM announced their commentary deal. Time to climb down from the soapbox Hindy...

But the bit about WEC feed/comms being used for other sites was interesting, although I do find myself asking (again) surely this would have been in the contract to begin with?

Bit late to mention but has been a busy week. It was great catch up with fellow tenthers at Silverstone and look forward to seeing everyone at the meet up at Le Mans later this year.


Thought the ELMS and WEC races were fantastic and glad that the weather wasn't as bad as predicted on Sunday.


Shame Hindy isn't on the TV commentary as the chemistry that he and McNish would be great however its nice to hear him trackside on a radio.

I haven't been to WEC for about 10 years, and realised it was just a couple of weeks short of my first "WEC" event, the Kosset 6 Hours in 1977. FORTY YEARS AGO - surely to God I'm not that old LOL.

Really enjoyed it. Thought P2 must be about right given how close it was. P1 was disappointing given how few cars, bit what excitement it delivered. Loved the entertainment zone and the access to the pit balcony, Mini Midgetman was insistent we spent the last hour there and I didn't protest.

We were on site to catch the Porsche fire, missed the Toyota crash.

Blooming marvellous day out. Wish I could​ make another one this year.
