I thought so.. Just making sure. That would be awesome if they did come back, it was always a pleasure to see them race. Beautiful cars.

According to Dagys, Aston Martin is seriously considering a trip to RA. Probably the Fernandez one?

That would be a great move by AMR in my opinion. The chance to compete against, Corvette, Viper, BMW, Ferrari, Porsche, and Lotus - that would be a proper GT battle.

Has to be the Fernandez one, if the interest for racing at Petit comes from somewhere within the team, it will be from him first of all (and his sponsor).

Stab-in-the-dark entry list

P1 3 cars (maybe 4?)
1x Muscle Milk Team Pickett
2x Dyson Racing (I think they'll run both)
?1x OAK Racing (do they have a second P1 they can run while the WEC car is in China/Japan?)

P2 13 cars
1x Project Libra
1x Dempsey Racing
1x Conquest Endurance
2x Level 5 Motorsports (I think they run both if "The High Chief" Tucker is free)
1x Greaves Motorsport
1x Pecom Racing
1x Status GP
1x Murphy Prototypes
1x Sébastien Loeb Racing
1x OAK Racing (other P2 will be in Japan/China for WEC)
1x JOTA
1x TDS by Thiriet
(don't think Race Performance, the Norma, or Boutsen will take part)

GT/GTE Pro/GTE Am 19 cars
2x Corvette Racing
1x Team Falken Tire
1x AJR Lotus
2x Flying Lizard MS
1x Paul Miller Racing
2x BMW Team RLL
2x SRT Motorsports
2x Extreme Speed MS
1x Kessel Racing
1x JMW Motorsport
1x AF Corse
1x IMSA Performance
1x ProSpeed
1x Aston Martin Racing/Fernandez

PC 8 cars
2x Merchant Services (I think they find some payers to run both cars)
1x Rocketsports
1x Performance Tech (picks-and-chooses races)
1x Dempsey Racing
1x PR1/Mathiasen (new car since LRP, might have second car?)
2x CORE Autosport

GTC 8 cars
1x JDX Racing
1x Alex Job Racing
2x NGT Motorsports (picks-and-chooses, does the big races)
1x GMG
1x Green Hornet (Might be 2x, LeSaffre told me at LRP he was running 2 cars for rest of 2012, but so far only seen at LRP)
2x TRG (the regular car and I think Krohn leases the #68)

I think we're looking at a minimum in the mid-40's, could possibly max out at 53... because that's what the track can hold

Obviously all the entries will score points in their own series. But I think for the PLM automatic bids, they combine them into one big class.

The addition of the ELMS as finale is no guarantee that many teams will come over. However, it is the first bright sign of life for this event being at least half as special as it has been in years past.

I would love to see the Robertsons take the big bad Ford out one more time for a Swan Song in competitive racing, even though I have already seen both in action this year.

Here's hoping that the next 3 months see more bright additions to the entry list.

I'm expecting zero GTs (hoping for two) and hoping for 6 P2s.

They ran two cars at Mosport. Except only 34 ran with ALMS while 33 ran with one of the Porsche challenge support races

Why would IMSA and AF Corse not come, guns blazing? Okay there's necessarily not much for JMW there but if one of those GTE-AM teams doesn't show up and one does, well that's it for the championship. IMSA already saw this year how long (French!!) commitment to ACO racing means nothing when the LM entries are given, similar to Larbre in 2009

Non-ELMS GTs, well Aston is the most realistic car to make a trip, Risi and Krohn next. Krohn probably doesn't come, unless they have an extra chassis lying there somewhere, however at the start of the season they mentioned how they'd like to do some extra ALMS rounds as well. Risi is a question mark

Last fall when the WEC schedule came out, Panoz should have moved the Petit Le Mans date. It is Oct 17-20.

Here is the WEC schedule after Le Mans.

6 Hours of Silverstone 26 August
6 Hours of São Paulo 15 September
6 Hours of Bahrain 29 September
6 Hours of Fuji 14 October
6 Hours of Shanghai 27 October

So if any WEC teams wanted to participate in Petit even though it isn't in the championship, they would have to go from Bahrain to Georgia, USA in one week and then to the other side of the world in Japan the next week.

Here is what Dr Don should have done. Move Petit Le Mans to September 8. The WEC teams will be in Silverstone 2 weeks before that, so that will give them plenty of time to get to Petit. And then, the next WEC race is the next week (September 15) in Brazil. Petit is basically in their flight path, so teams can stop at Petit and then continue their journey to Brazil.

This makes too much sense to me.

Not really, the weekend before is for testing so that would fall on Labor Day weekend (i.e. the Baltimore race). Petit needs to be the last race ALMS of the year.

The WEC doesn't need the ridiculous long break after Le Mans.
