flatlandsman should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The only thing needed for me now is a Pro GT class, the issue with Ams is the talent is spread more so the grid can oft get spread in their early runs,with a Pro class I think GT3 would just like GTE Pro was,just a 24h freight train!!

GT3 was awesome yesterday however so maybe I am wrong

I miss the Pro GT class as well but with the factories focused on Hypercar it's not going to happen (not to mention lack of garage space etc). Having said that, the Am standard seems pretty high in WEC this year. Most of the carnage in yesterday's race was caused by, ahem, pros in Hypercar bulldozing through GTs.

You could, easily do it, the cars are there, just need to slot 3 pro's into them, not hard at all in my eyes

Not many had clean races. It was apparent they didn't have the speed of the Ferrari's and Porsche's though. No one had their pace. The ACO will probably respond but hopefully it's to speed up otber cars not slow down the fastest ones. I'm not sure what the power gain will do for the hypercar class but I hope they trial it at the test day.

Can't believe I'm saying this... but there's a part of me that actually wouldn't mind booting 4 Hypercars and 4 GT3s and making an 8-car LMP2 class.

The grids are amazing currently but ultimately past a certain point not everyone can compete and you're just getting cars a lap down or more. But a super competitive P2 class (with new chassis eventually) would really be a plus. It's multi-class racing after all.

Maybe it'll just happen naturally again in a couple of years as things cycle around. Like I say I'm sure I'm in the minority.

If grids were to be split into prototypes <> GTs, then yes, bring back P2 to fill up the proto field. 40 cars should be a realistic target (20-25 Hypercars + 15-20 P2s). Same for GT which would benefit from a Pro category. It would also create space for those brands that are now left out and manufacturers that would like to enter more than 2 cars.

And have 2 main races, 1 on Sat, 1 on Sun.

I like the current format and I expect it to expand in both classes over the next few years. But I hope they expand the grid and the calendar.

From an announcement on Akkodis ASP's Instagram account. It looks like Timur Boguslavskiy has parted ways with the team and will be replaced by Clemens Schmid at the next round in São Paulo.

Yes, this was in a DSC piece about changes to the driver lineups for Sao Paulo

https://www.dailysportscar.com/2024/...sao-paulo.html

Mostly stable lineups, but a few other differences, from Le Mans at least

Shame, he was actually useful in the car compared to some others in their team.

Pardon me for also being cynical, but this is it. He's improved massively sine he started, but in the current field, without GT's standout driver of the past two seasons, he won't be hunting for victory even in the amateur categories.

I would not be shocked to see him filling a TBS this weekend at Spa to be honest, he is minted after all.
