rbs should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1000km of Silverstone

The last Silverstone 1000Km was in 2010, from 2011 it has been a 6 hour race although one race was shortened when it was red flagged in the middle of a very heavy rain storm.

I still like the GTE Qualifying race, but I'd also like to see LMP1 and LMP2 qualifying going back to proper flying laps. The averages just isn't as fun IMO. I like qualifying when it's a flat out balls to the wall single lap.

The reason why the WEC did it was to prevent what was common in F1 and what Audi and Toyota did in 2012, where they spent most of the session in the garage or on pit road just waiting to run a fast lap and call it a day.

Granted, the averages deal IMO kinda sucks, but the only other way to make them run the whole session is to turn it into a practice session (like at LM) and don't have tires used in qualifying count towards the race provided that they start the race with the tires they used to set their fastest laps in Q.

Leave it how it is now imo. I like the average qualifying thing. I agree they should have qualifying tires as an additional set but start the race on one of the same sets used in qualifying.

The average is nice because you get to see that many more fliers

I'd be fine with Le Mans like practice-qualifyings and then just setting the grid from those times (or maybe so that FP1 doesn't count, but FP2 and FP3 does, and slightly longer sessions). The qualifying feels so pointless right now. Maybe they could make the schedule more compact this way too if that helps to save costs or something.

I find the average more difficult to follow. You spend more time looking at the timing page than the cars.

Yeah maybe I'm not clever enough to follow it but I don't really get too excited by the current qualifying. That said the alternative is a lack of track action as everyone says. I'm happy enough just to see cars on the track.

As long as they don't touch LM qualifying I'm not too fussed.

Always love qualy especially on wednesday as it is the first time you see and hear the cars, position on grid for a 24 hour race is less important but just great to see the cars go round and you start to get an idea of how they will perform at the weekend, But this year i will see them a little earlier, role on this sunday

The GTE qualifying race will only work on WEC rounds where they cut the race distance of the enduro race to 4 hours. I'm sure Silverstone can be one of those 4 hour races, perhaps COTA and Bahrain could be the others.

Which events you think should stay at 6 hours? Reduce to 4 hours?

Why does it only work on short races? I don't follow.

After cutting those races to 4 hours what next two hours, sorry but endurance racing is what it says, 6 hours is an absolute minimum no shorter or it will go the way of F1 boring processions.

As far as I'm concerned, the current WEC qualifying is completely idiotic, particularly as it's abandoned in favour of 6 HOURS of it at Le Mans......

Hope they make races a little longer with more special added to it. Anything but 8 hours of Bahrain, though Spa, Fuji or Silverstone should be a longer race.

I could handle a 10 am start at Silverstone for an 8 hour race. It would save me having to watch 7 cars in a support race (good though they sounded....)
