You do get the impression that ACO are controlling BoP to command ticket sales, it does seem to be rather obvious at times.

They can't control race strategy though. Not yet anyway!

The WEC app is getting better. I find it much more usable than it used to be and it's good they have added ELMS and LM Cup video etc.

Although it appears the app does not actually provide race results, which is really peak ACO nonsense.

As with a lot of other sports, a good place for basic results and league tables is the wikipedia page for the series:

The website stopped between lap 89 and 120ish, but the app seemed to be OK in that period.

Yeah. It’s pants.

Although the data they now put in the timing section is cool. When it appears.

Good article about newcomers and their problems. BOP will help them a bit probably but above all they need to learn a lot about their cars.

I think Blomqvist is focusing on Indycar. Given that Indycar isn't going amazingly well for him, it may help him and the team produce some results. It isn't preventing Kyffin Simpson from being at Le Mans though!

That all being said, with his sportscar record and Drugovich being an F2 champion, you have to wonder if Drugovich should be in Indycar with Blomqvist doing IMSA/WEC/ELMS + Le Mans!

No Vettel but Jaminet/Nasr/Tandy are a great lineup. Hopefully the car doesn't implode after a few hours this year

Same for Palou. Thanks for the info, I totally forgot Blomqvist is racing in IndyCar as well

I guess they want to show the "human" story. Dude we want sexy gorgeous cars racing on track. That is the TV we come in to watch. Not guys sitting in the garage.

In my opinion if they want to humanise the sport more they should have more footwell pedal cams and onboard videos from “over the shoulder” of the driver as so many of the onboard cams for WEC are just straight ahead of the windscreen with no instruments or driver visible. I like seeing drivers hacksawing away on the wheel etc from my onboards

Toyota still hoping for power gain introduction as soon as possible. But I fear they (the ACO) won't experiment at Le Mans without trying this feature even once.

V8 I am sorry to tell you chap the ACO tv team are far more interested in showing pit shots than on track action.

You wait, it gets worse if there is battling, it really is woeful coverage.

All it takes is someone new to direct and produce, this current lot seem to want to make a tv show, not show a sports event. Appalling

That's a good plan.

I am surprised they have put in the infrastructure for it, even declare it on the technical bulletins, but aren't using it.

I am assuming that they aren't using it rather than it just happens to be zero!

Despite their race pace today, they didn't have a clean race. Could have been higher up if they kept out of the penalties or contact with others. I know that article is from pre race, but they didn't do themselves favors in the race.

WEC 2024 has become the closest thing to a perfect sportscar racing series. The grids, the class structure, the FCY procedures, the TV and media coverage, and the race steward decisions making. Just awesome stuff. Nitpicking, the only thing I would have liked to see is a way to make space for Audi and Mercedes GT3 efforts.
