Exactly!

My two cents: we know that Lotus, which always seems to be on the brink of an utter financial catastrophe, OAK, strong as an oak tree, and Porsche are all coming to LMP1 in the very near future. Now what would the fans of the sport of ENDURANCE RACING, not Formula One, want to see: a Mercedes SLS AMG GTE or a Mercedes LMP1? A Nissan GT-R GTE or a Nissan LMP1? A BMW Z4 GTE or a BMW LMP1? A Jaguar F-TYPE GTE or a Jaguar LMP1?

I'd rather see a completely balanced field rather than one completely outdoing the other. Don't get me wrong, I love GTE. But that's why we have the Blancpain Endurance Series, ADAC GT Masters, DTM, Super GT, FIA GT, VLN, British GT, Pirelli World Challenge, V8 Supercars, etc, etc, etc.



Also, I heard rumors a while ago about a future Jaguar GTE factory program with Williams F1 support. Is that going to take off? I haven't heard anything about it since. :/
