Am I the only one not being happy with the new parc fermé after the race? I feel like ACO robbed me and also the drivers from the final pass along the grandstand receiving their well deserved applause. For me that was one of my goosebump moments.

I might be wrong here, but I think it is temporary for this year. The new part ferme hasn't been completed, but they lost the old one in the late decision to go to 60 garages in one go, not 58 garages for this year. Not that I know where the new one is meant to be and it may still stop the second pass after the race.

So about the grids next year.

What do we think the chances are for additional entries in LMP1 besides the standard six factory cars and Rebellion (now that they've confirmed return) and Kolles.
Third Audi - extremely unlikely given the indication recently
Third Porsche - moderately unlikely given the Audi lead
Third Toyota - there's some indication of it happening but this is Toyota we're talking about so...
Second CLM - ehh
Other privateers - there's no reason for anyone to commit before 2018 (if even then)

So I guess very optimistically we can hope for 11, mildly optimistically 10, and realistically/pessimistic 9. Anything above those pleasant surprise and obviously anything below disappointment.

In LMP2 the ratio between spec-mobiles and old 2016-and-before array of vehicles will be interesting but the grandfathering rules will make having older machinery obsolete regardless (unless victory isn't your goal, you simply have no money, or you are in crappy situation created by ACO like SMP). I don't believe there will be any Rileys or Dallaras except maybe one or two, the rest will be armada of clone spec Orecas and Onroaks with those grandfathered cars there in the mix in some capacity. Including the older gen Orecas and Onroaks, and rebadged "Alpine" nonsense etc of course

GTE who cares

I'm actually moderately interest to see what Welter will achieve in G56, well whatever there is to achieve within the limited parameters of that position. I just hope it actually materialized and doesn't end up being another GreenGT. The trust was more secure with the Nissan advertising projects and this year's LMP2 modded Pescarolo because they were directed by actual manufacturers. That's why it's almost little less trustworthy with these smaller innovative projects.

It could be another of those "intermittent" in-between years for prototype categories before 2018 and 2019.

Just for interest and having seen Chiana's post above, I have posted this in LMP3 thread:


"Discussing LMP3 with a team principal last week and he was commenting that in the ELMS the GTE class, with 7 or 8 cars at best was becoming irrelevant and really thinking that the series could be all LMP cars in the 3 categories.

Same guy was highly critical of BOP juggling that goes on in GT racing and overall I felt he considered the LMP and GT classes should not now be in the same races.

Now imagine Le Mans without GT cars, how would that be?"

It wouldn't suit some, but as a fan brought up on Group C - it works for me.......

I'd welcome the LMP3s personally - I think they're terrific.


PS It is now exactly 300 days until my 2017 Le Mans holiday begins......

By the way, let's try and keep this thread going - that's why I created it in the first place. Otherwise I'll have to spend months reading F1 threads.....
