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%
Multiple Choice Poll. Voters: 46. You may not vote on this poll

Where do the FIA/ACO post the next races BoP tables? They are out (as S365 has posted it), but I can't find it - public or press section?

I think for the rest of this season (if you have not already) pretend what the races would look like if the Porsche LMP1s were not running in it.

There's no need to do that because at the least SMP Dallara will be there next year and so will ByKolles. Now we wait for Ginetta and Perrinn.

Perrinn is a joke, SMP dallara is likely. About bykolles, you can't be sure about anything about them.
Some weeks ago, I've read that ginetta finished aero development and can build the car, but are still in negotations with interested teams (rumored manor)

Manor have been rumoured for Ginetta since the car was announced, along with others. Ginetta gained a wealth of customers through their G57 P2 programme, the optimist in me would be surprised if they didn't sell 3-4 cars

We should have this conversation over in the 2018 thread or the lmp1 thread. But I will enjoy the season while it lasts. The competition up front is still close and that's a big positive.

Last minute volunteer opportunity @ CotA

For those of you in the greater Austin, TX, US area that are interested in being in much closer proximity to the cars, I received this email yesterday:

-----------
This is the Workers Wanted list from MotorsportReg.com.

Usually we only email you if you’re within 300 miles of the event venue that needs workers. But these are such high-profile events that you’d consider travelling for, we’re opening it up to our entire list.

The World Endurance Championship starts THIS WEEK at COTA. No experience is necessary (though preferred) and it will qualify you to work the Formula 1 Grand Prix in October.

The Formula 1 US Grand Prix is October 19- 22 and experience is required for all volunteer positions.

Here’s more from Sydney Davis Yagel:
________________________________________

Join us for the World Endurance Championship weekend and qualify to work the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix!

We are looking for Flagging and Communications volunteers for our upcoming WEC event. With the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we are short some marshals and could use some additional help. Experience is preferred, but not necessary. However, experience is required for the Formula 1 weekend, so working this event will give you the experience you need to apply. Details and registration links for each event are below.

Each weekend comes with COTA goodies, one GA ticket for a friend or family member, most meals, free camping or discounted hotel rates, and more than a few surprises!

World Endurance Championship (WEC)
Event Dates: September 13-16
Event Registration: http://msreg.com/LSLM17-public
Wednesday is our training day and kickoff party with on-track racing action Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We REALLY need help on Thursday! The Spirit of Le Mans takes over Austin for a thrilling weekend of speed culminating in six hours of world class endurance racing. Joining WEC on track in 2017 is World Series Formula V8 3.5, Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, and the United States Formula 4 Championship.

Formula 1 United States Grand Prix
Event Dates: October 19-22
Event Registration Application*: http://msreg.com/F1USGP17-new
Thursday is our training day and kickoff party with on-track racing action Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In addition to the world-class racing of Formula 1, the United States Formula 4 Championship and another soon to be announced series will be showcasing their skills on track.

*Please note that experience is required for all Formula 1 volunteer positions. If you plan to work WEC, please note that in your application. Your application will not be confirmed until your experience is confirmed.

Speaking of COTA, anyone going to open a new thread for this weekend's WEC race? Practice 1 is now live, but unfortunately live timing seems to be absent!

It is really unbelievable. This is a constant. A complete lack of respect for the fans.

https://timing.71wytham.org.uk/s/wec isn't working either
Maybe it's some general problem with timing?

All the usual sites for timing are not working. Maybe it is an issue at COTA, like you said Spyderman.

Porsche tweeted that after 30 minutes, #2 car is in first followed by the Toyota's, then #1 in fourth. No times reported, and the wec said this https://twitter.com/FIAWEC/status/908384195793301505
