Usually LMP3s are the worst, but not normally this bad. Cleanup is taking a while too. It's just generall crap. Although it has to be said that the first 2 SCs were LMP2 accidents and the first LMP3 spin was put there by a GTE.

It wasn't this bad at Paul Ricard. Maybe Monza brings out the worst in people

On the plus side, they're now so practised with the safety car procedure that when there is an error, they can fix it on track before the marshals have finished cleaning up.

So...that's good I guess.

One issue is the lack of separation between the LMP3 and the GTE-AMs. At this stage of the race, the GTE-AMs are often as fast or faster than the LMP3s…

It begs the questio: why not give the LMP3s a wee bit more power? Increase in cost? They'd only need another 20 horsepower or so and that Nissan engine is barely working in its current guise.

It's sort of fitting that this race should end with a car in the gravel.

Didn't enjoy that race. Even after it got going it failed to engage. Maybe the N24 set the bar too high.

I agree, it was a disappointing affair. Too many safety cars early, too little flow, and too little excitement.

Maybe ELMS should go back to Imola?

Agreed. To be honest I am tired of seeing Bronze and Silver drivers put at the wheel when the safety car is on so that their driving time clock starts ticking. All those teams getting around the pro-am format is making me sick.

We need a big revamp of the pro-am thing in the ELMS. ACO : drop it or make it fair and square. Quickly ! I have some ideas

I don't know why (maybe the track), but I didn't enjoy the race, it was difficult to follow too the action. I watched the race at the end of the day in youtube.
