Not sure if it's a good fit here (I did post this also in the Le Mans section), but Fox and Fox Sports has elected to not renew coverage for LM and the WEC this year. North American coverage it TBA.

Pretty good coordination for Ford, AMR, AF Corse, and Porsche GT teams to be at this Abu Dahbi test together. BMW must feel like they are being left out. This test is something I would liked to have seen. A GTE Pro shootout with just them on the track only should have been tempting for them to have amongst themselves.

Does anyone see a point of the WEC running a stand alone, GTE-Am class this year with 3-5 entries in it? I think they should just think about folding GTE-Pro & GTE-Am into a single class, especially when considering we are looking a strong numbers in P1, P2, and GTE-Pro.

I don't think they are missing out. S365 rumour says they got fed over by one of the other GTE manufacturers, far along into the development. It was a massive setback. The RLL cars for Daytona are probably the only ones even ready at the moment.

It is not uncommon for competing teams to test together at the same time. Sharing learned information is a little less frequent...

Merging them together (effectively getting rid of the 1 year old car rule in the process) and having just a privateers trophy would be sufficient (yes I think there should be some kind of recognition that you are the best non-factory car, but a whole class for it is overkill). I belive most GTE-Am cars would still show up for the whole season anyway. If they want to run a true GTE-Am category then theres always ELMS for them to run! Which by the way should just be renamed GTE also, just have a ban for full factory cars and its the same as now.

Yep, read that with great interest. Fingers crossed everything falls into place, they are clearly working very hard to get that second car fully funded by the 5th February, if they possibly can. Here's hoping!
