I mean, the headline race doesn't always run last on a race weekend anyway.

For example, PWC's last races of the weekends shared with Indycar are generally after the Indycar race.

And I don't know if the practice stopped or has continued, but there used to be races on Sunday after the 12 Hours at least for a few years from about 2000 onwards.

I used "local series", but national is a better term and more of what I was trying to say. I don't care if the WEC goes first or second at Sebring. I just thought it should be as big of a race as IMSA's. Cutting it to 1000miles or 8hrs seems like a big chop for no reason other than not to be as big as the 12 hours. Oh well, at least they'll be racing there, hopefully.

I don't recall any of them but haven't been to all since that year. Nothing on Sunday from 2010 onwards anyways.

I remember one year at the Petit ('01 or '02 I think) where PWC had an extra race scheduled (make up for an earlier cancellation during their season) on Sunday - biggest anti-climax on a race track ever, just didn't work, everybody was hangover incl. the workers!

It certainly begs the question if the future race thread will be shared on both subforums!

Thank heavens that they kept it as two separate races. We wouldnít have been able to cope.

Whatever the WEC thread will be a good warm up. People can practice their use of smilies and BoP outrage for the main event.
