Hope its not geo blocked in the USA. For the first time ever this year races on the NISMO TV youtube channel are geoblocked. Monza was not blocked, but Silversonte was? Whats up with that!. Proxfree is going to get used more by me now.

I can't say I've ever really noticed. There are a number, although IIRC not all were open until Saturday. I guess when you get out the back of the circuit there aren't many, only the ones on the hill.

Who would have thought a few months back that Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Lexus could be considered serious contenders to win the Spa 24. I think you can say that now.

Agreed! Aston and Lexus were very good at Silverstone and both teams have excellent driver line-ups with former Spa winners onboard (Martin, Palttala, Ortelli at least).

However, I don't think that Jaguar will run in Spa. I remember reading about a part-season program, which ends before Spa. Maybe I'm wrong or maybe it has changed.

Will you put your money in any of them? Risk-free bets are a great source of matched betting profit.

Single class endurance racing must be the worst idea ever.

Ortelli would do well to remember that if the Safety Car has its lights on, you follow it wherever it goes.

Last year Ortelli was the only car on the track, merrily heading to La Source, whilst the Safety Car lead the rest of the pack down the pit lane.

That needs some justification my friend....... Or the words, 'in my opinion' on the end.

I don't agree that it's a bad idea but will point out that Blancpain is not a single class series.

I was going to say the same thing. They may run the same types of class cars (GT3) but there's different classes separated by driver ranks.

I definitely prefer multi-class endurance racing. But this statement can also be reworded: If you're racing a bunch of cars similar to yours, you are NOT ALLOWED to continue racing past a certain time window. Because it's the worst idea ever for all you gt3 cars to continue racing as opposed to just ending the race.
