Just when the ACO brokered a deal with Formula E to avoid date clashes, the SRO makes one.

That Silverstone/N24h clash is just ridiculous. So many of the GT3 teams in the N24h are from Blancpain. Drivers as well. No point for a European top-level GT series to have a race in the N24h weekend. Nobody who cares about GT racing cares about Blancpain that weekend.

Paul Ricard will probably be Saturday night so no problem with the Le Mans test day which is Sunday.

It's usually the week when the Thursday is a public holiday because of the Ascension Day or Corpus Christi. The latter is the Le Mans test day weekend so N24h will probably be the earlier. Plus I remember reading the race will be earlier than this year.

It was the case this year, but there is no fixed date for the 24h. It was late May the last 2 year, in 2015 it was mid May, 2014 late June and 2013 it was mid May but held on Sunday/Monday because of public holiday (Pentecost).

From a selfish point of view its so frustrating that Silverstone will clash with the Nurburgring 24 hours, we will miss a number of top teams and drivers.

I somehow think SRO will realize their mistake and adjust the date eventually.

Also why is the 6 hour race still at Paul Ricard. That is the most TV Unfriendly track I have ever seen. Its very hard to watch racing at that track. Its a waste of a good race.

Agreed - watching stuff there hurts my eyes! Plus it's just a bland soulless place anyway.

One of the few tracks, though, that can have night races without getting into trouble with NIMBYs - and thus Ratel thinks it's a good warm-up for Spa.

They could of course do a 3h night race and move the 1000k back to the 'Ring or Monza.

Apparently SRO expected N24 to be later in the month hence that date. I expect they will move to avoid the clash

I mean, why would promoters make teams have to decide where to race?

Even IMSA has agreed not to clash with the Pirelli World Challenge.

Get you point but everything seems to suggest this is just a misunderstanding from the SRO as to when they believed the N24 would be

I can't see them wanting to clash with that race... I'm sure they will move it
