Silverstone WEC race is on the Saturday instead of the Sunday (ELMS race switches to Sunday in 2020), so wondering if track action will begin on Thursday instead of Friday...?

I think it will have to. The only way to fit the races into Fri-Sun with WEC on the Sat would be to drop WEC FP3 and do qualifying for each race on the morning. And that leaves little/no space for any support races, yet we know that Britcar Endurance are going to be there too (a very welcome addition to the event).

It's a shame really. That Fri with 4 x 90min practice sessions (2 WEC, 2 ELMS) was terrific value. Spreading the schedule over 4 days doesn't improve the experience. Silverstone doesn't have unlimited days when it can run loud cars so using an extra one of them up for this means something giving elsewhere. It is already the only circuit on the SRO calendar that is closed to spectators on Fridays for their GT events.

Would you look at that, they actually did it.

Fuji even further back in November seems destined for a soaking (even moreso than its usual October date), but that's a nitpick in what is otherwise a good calendar. Hopefully Kyalami is day/night as the IGTC race was.

Pretty much a dream calendar, and at least as of now Sebring is listed as a 1000 mile race. Would've liked to maybe see Monza before LM as an appetizer for the big show. But Spa is the traditional pre-LM race now and it does give more use to LM aero packages outside of LM, LM test weekend, WEC Prologue and maybe Spa.

Best WEC Calendar so far. Any ideas on improving it would be very picky. Impressive stuff.

Easy. Bahrain has got to go. A waste of an event for sure. COTA or The Bend would be better.

As a South African, I am very happy to see Kyalami on the calendar. Whether it will work for the WEC remains to be seen. It was good for GT3 at the 9 Hours, but LMP1/2/H are much faster and the track is pretty twisty. Having said that, it is emphatically not a Tilke-drome. If you get it wrong, you pay. I think we can all agree that is how it should be. I hope it works.

Bahrain is the one weak link, and I'd support an Australian event too. Wouldn't bother with COTA. However it is impressively close to a perfect calendar.

There's also no WEC Prologue per se. It's been replaced basically by a combination of the LM test weekend and a WEC Promoters test at Silverstone the week before the 6 Hours weekend.

So far everyone's pretty happy with this calendar. Does that mean hell has frozen over? The ACO did something right by most of us for once?
