And pit out for that matter

Seeing as half of the race will be run in darkness, will be interesting to see how illuminated Ulmann will be with this new 'complex'

Also I hope FIA doesn't insist in installing new bright-as-day floodlights, you know something as utterly ridiculous as with COTA and Bahrain, but seeing as they seem to be fine with American pit boxes and Sebring return in general, I'm not too worried about that happening

Plus there are quite a few (way too much if you ask me) floodlights already, every turn is lid. Not new, the lights have been there for years (same at the Petit) but overall much less light than Daytona (or CotA, Bahrain for that matter).

Pit lane is fine, teams will have trailers/tents/containers to work from, if you wanna see F1 style garages, please go watch/visit F1 or 'enjoy' the sterile environment at CotA...

Agree but as you say, it could be much, much worse

With the flexible American styled pits + tents as paddock areas I also don't get why the field will presumably still be capped at 3X (not that there ever were that many extra takers, but for arguments sake)

36.

The 34 already announced, one GTE Corvette expected and one slot TBD/TBA (perhaps 'reserved' for Ginetta if they become the latest Phoenix???).

There's plenty of 'pitlane' left for say half a dozen extra entries, curious as well why the artificial limit, maybe I get the chance to talk to one of their officials during race week and find out.

Is there a limit to the final amount or is it just the sea freight limit? If there are cars in America already (Vette, Ford?) would that be rejected? I have a hard time believing they would.

There was a Riley Viper that wanted to join COTA 6 Hours in 2016, but the entry was rejected even though it was just an one-off + not part of the logistics package

And the given excuse of not being enough garages was BS too given only 31 cars entered, yet the previous season there had been allocation for possible 35 cars & extras had Nissan and some of the others retained their spots

Jenson Button skips the next 2 races (Sebring and Spa) to concentrate on Super GT.

36. That. Is. It.

(I'll eat a handful of tire marbles from turn 17 if there'll be more on the final entry list - WEC race only! )
