I hope it's more. Even a static camera is still cool if it is more than one of them. I too have doubts about extended coverage of the prologue, but if I were the WEC I would seriously look into it to get the word out about the super season, even if Alonso isn't going to be there.

Yes!

And it's the same exact issue with Le Mans Test Day, it's essentially worthless if you're not at the circuit. There was one year where they provided CCTV shots (2013) and then the next (2014) where they had actual proper cameras - albeit still static - overhead the circuit, but then they gave up for no reason and we are back to stone age again with crap-tastic non-coverage.

It's even more insult to injury considering that unlike in the past these tests are now force-madatory for the teams, yet no-one can see them (I don't consider second hand social media clips as such)

The only upside of Test Day coverage in contrast to HTTT is that at least LT, RLM cover it live, but most of the time if you can't catch the sessions live you're screwed anyway because their on-demand archiving is sketchy at best.

Endurance-Info has picked up on the interesting representation of a prototype on the poster for the first round of the Super Season.

I know it will be after the fact but I hope someone posts some good footage of the new cars from the Prologue. Looking forward to seeing and hearing them all.

That's an Oreca 07, though.

They did some analysis on how much uptake there was. Apparently very few people watched it to justify the, even small, cost. The teams didnít want to fund it for the same reason. I believe that they only had two people watch for more than ten seconds, only 50% of them were active on social media to talk about it and they didnít talk about the cars at all, just about the run off and how it wasnít as good as previous years.

Some people say this is because after a long stint they have to pack up and travel. This is not the case, they just like winding up people. Itís one of their perks for providing a free service.

All of this is a lie, BTW. However I owe Chiana a beer.

Please. The off-season is absolutely terrible there's no racing, it's cold as **** outside and the 'racing press' is even worse than usual because there's nothing to write about. At least I don't follow F1 anymore which is even worse!

Where I live it's supposed to be the middle of March but it feels like how it should've about a month ago. Watching old Sebring races on You Tube make me wish it was warmer that much more.

Nyck de Vries will be driving for Racing Team Nederland in LMP2 after Le Mans 2018 as replacement of Jan Lammers.

More rumors that the Sebring WEC round could be in trouble as far as happening as envisioned:

If John Dagys says sources are telling him something it's usually the opposite.

I posted on the Sebring race thread that the rumors are always something negative. It's like these 'sources' want the race to fail. Maybe they're afraid of being upstaged or something? That's not to say the teams are but maybe IMSA supporters are whispering things like this.

Certainly wouldn't be out of realms of possibility given what we've seen...

Anyway, regarding that 'notebook' article, I just have to laugh at "multiple sources have indicated that a number of logistical and marketing issues may be to much to overcome" line. It really isn't that difficult.
