Bcarr6 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
WEC Dream Team

If there's something like this already please delete but I haven't found anything like it.

So, I was thinking about what my WEC dream team would be, and I'm curious to hear why others would pick!

You can have a two car team in any class, manufacturer present or who you'd like to see join, drivers from that MFG, or poached from elsewhere

Mine would be as follows:

McLaren GTE Pro, with a new 720s GTE car

#58 - Shane van Gisbergen / Alvaro Parente / Maximilian Buhk

#59 - Kevin Estre / Come Ledogar / Eduardo Mortara


And if I could do a Ford a bring an extra pro car:

#60 - Rob Bell / James Calado / Vincent Abril

Far far too many good drivers to choose from. Are we allowed to enter 2 classes like Rebellion used to do?

LMP1

#7 Audi - Lotterrer / Alonso / Jani
#8 Audi - Tandy / Heidfeld / Montoya
#9 Audi - Bernhard / Brundle / Jarvis (3rd car for Le Mans)

LMP2 (includes a silver)

#30 Dallara - Beche / Buemi/ Thiriet (Silver)
#31 ORECA - Lapierre / Derani / Canal (Silver)

This is assuming that many drivers like Treyluer and Wurz would not make a return now. I'd like to see Heidfeld and Brundle get a shot at a works seat, and I think Jarvis was under rated. Thiriet and Canal have put in incredible performances for Silver drivers. This leaves the majority of Toyota and Porsche drivers alone of course.

This is something I think about a lot

I try to choose drivers that aren't already hired by other factories.

So, here goes:

Morgan Aero 8 GTE-Pro
Car 1:
Dan Cammish
Fernando Rees
Bruno Senna
Car 2:
Ludovic Badey
Kuba Giermaziak
Katherine Legge
Car 3:
Nicolas Prost
Jerome d'Ambrosio
Robert Kubica

Some picks are a little random perhaps (Ludovic Badey), but none are less than quick, consistent, performers.

I could also do an alternate line-up that consists of almost exclusively Super GT drivers

I confess I'm puzzled to see Heidfeld in your Audi but Buemi 'demoted' to LMP2..... I would though like to see Alonso and Montoya in an LMP1 hybrid car......

Some of my choices are about giving people a chance to see how they'd be. Buemi is a star, but Heidfeld deserves a shot in a P1, so as part of my dream, I'd like to see that. Since both teams are under the same banner (If Alpine can run a LMP2, why not Audi? ) you could move them about should someone like Heidfeld not perform. That's also the reason Brundle is in there too. I think he deserves a shot. Buemi is a known quantity, but I think there's some amazing drivers I'd love to see in LMP1 to see how they'd do.

Some people argue that other series are a great identifier for LMP talent. I don't necessarily agree, but using that, Heidfeld is potentially better than Buemi.

I confess I don't agree, but, who knows? I always rated Nick, but was sorry for him that he wasn't able to make 'the big time' in sportscars. Not to devalue what Rebellion took on, as I have a lot of admiration for for Bart and his team. I've listened to the whole of the 2016 Le Mans race now many times, and one of the things that sticks in my mind is how Nick 'did a Lauda' at the start of that race. He just didn't want to drive the car in that rain. Somehow it surprised me.

Some awesome lineups there

I've updated mine a little, Zak Brown gave me a bigger budget...

#57 McLaren GT - McLaren 720s GTE Pro - Ben Barnicoat / Raffaele Marciello / Mirko Bortolotti

#58 McLaren GT - McLaren 720s GTE Pro - Shane van Gisbergen / Alvaro Parente / Eduardo Mortara

#59 McLaren GT - McLaren 720s GTE Pro - Kevin Estre / Come Ledogar / Maximilian Buhk

#60 McLaren GT - McLaren 720s GTE Pro - Rob Bell / Vincent Abril / Christopher Mies


In the 57 I've got some young new GT hotshots in Barnicoat and Marciello, anchored by the unblinkable Bortolotti

In 58 there's the red hot Gis, with Parente and Mortara providing a solid and fast base

In 59, arguably the fastest McLaren driver in recent history Estre, with his speedy replacement Ledogar, and the always solid Buhk.

And finally in 60, Bell holding down the fort with Abril and Mies providing a good mix

I've gone for GT aces with a nice mix of young and old, I wouldn't want too go poaching every driver from current GTE lineups like Ford did, I like instead to idea of pulling from the strength of GT3 and giving plenty of young guns the opportunity

He'd get a chance and if he didn't preform he'd be out quickly. But every driver has an isolated incident like that that be called upon in these circumstances. Some wouldn't hire Davidson due to his poor attitude regarding GT traffics rights to even be in the race. Some wouldn't hire Gene (me included) for his outrageous driving in 2011. Some wouldn't hire Mucke for...being Mucke. But Ford did it anyway.

So I do agree, I do take your point and it is valid, but I'd give him a shot to see if he could do it.
