As far as I know, each team has to send at least one car for the WEC Prologue unless the ACO grants them a waiver.

Very conveniently timed as well for those with aspirations to join the 12H...

Probably an Aston in GTLM or possibly a Mercedes in GTD, http://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/da...st-12h-double/

Apparently Sebring is 50/50.

15 sounds like a decent number of P cars for the Rolex.

I've been doing it that way the past 22 (minus one year in a motel) with nuttin' but my old Walkman.

It works fer me. I even sleep in the stands....a few cardboard boxes from the concessionaires to insulate one's bottom/make the same of a mattress, fully clothed and blanketed. Git to snooze like a rock to the "music" in my ears. Also, this way, 'don't have to walk back and forth so far 'cept for provisions.

I didn't take it that way...more just a thought....

“The first race in 2017 is Daytona and that’s not long from now. If we’re going to be ready for that one, that’s a lot of work.
It’s certainly something we’re looking at but we haven’t decided that’s what we’re going to do.”

That's great. You can really see the race develop better from the stands
especially for the finish when the pits get crazy. Hopefully I can
find some free parking close to nascar1.

Nice to see some positive news and excitement for an American sportscar race 3 months ahead of the event itself. I hope this trend can continue.

So...you sleep outside at home????

I'm from the North too, and yes, 40 is cold for sleeping in the grandstands....

One of the few times I've stuck it out to the bitter end ('like to beat the traffic) was '96
when Papis got his nickname (for the unenlightened, "Mad Max") chasin' the Dyson Riley & Scott. It was pretty awesome watchin' him fly down pit lane at 150 and hopin' the 333 would re-fire (problems with the valve seats the year before year, negating hot re-starts). And of course, being able to see nearly the whole circuit....changed my "life" after being a "grounds keeper" all those years. Knowing what 't'was like watchin' all the available corners ground level during previous camping and driving years (which is a must, of course, for newbies, no doubt) 'found it much better upstairs for spectating (along with cheaper).....
