Just to have an idea about the changes:

Of the 15 LMS LMP2 runners currently at Monza

5 would be good-to-go under 2021 regulations:
* #25 Algarve Pro: Falb (B) - Trummer (G) - Aubry (G)
* #27 Dragonspeed: Hedman (B) - Hanley (G) - Milesi (S)
* #34 Inter Europol: Smiechowski (S) - Binder (S) - Isaakyan (G)
* #37 Cool: Lapierre (P) - Borga (S) - Coigny (B)
* #50 Richard Mille: Calderon (S) - Floersch (S) - Visser (S)

3 would be OK if they add an extra driver:
* #20 High Class: Fjordbach (S) - Andersen (B) -> can add any category
* #22 United: Hanson (S) - Albuquerque (P) -> needs a silver or bronze
* #35 BHK: Dracone (S) - Campana (G) -> needs a silver or bronze

7 would have to change at least one driver:
* #24 Algarve Pro: Enqvist (S) - Lancaster (G) - Maini (G)
* #26 G-Drive: Rusinov (G) - Jensen (S) - Vergne (P)
* #28 IDEC: Lafargue (S) - Chatin (G) - Bradley (G)
* #30 Duqueine: Gommendy (P) - Hirschi (G) - Tereschenko (S)
* #31 Panis: Canal (S) - Jamin (G) - Stevens (P)
* #32 United: Owen (S) - Brundle (G) - Van Uitert (G)
* #39 Graff: Allen (G) - Laurent (G) - Cougnaud (S)

--

This now disappeared entry would also be outlawed:
#21 Dragonspeed: Rojas (G) - Hanley (G) - Buret (S)

--
Of the 10 WEC LMP2 runners at Spa

6 would be good-to-go under 2021 regulations:
* #25 Algarve Pro: Falb (B) - Trummer (G) - Lancaster (G)
* #29 Racing Team Nederland: Van Eerd (B) - Van Der Garde (P) - Van Uitert (S) -> normally it's De Vries instead of Van Uitert but that doesn't even matter
* #33 High Class: Patterson (B) - Yamashita (G) - Fjordbach (S)
* #35 Eurasia: Yamanaka (B) - Foster (G) - Merhi (P)
* #42 Cool: Lapierre (P) - Borga (S) - Coigny (B)
* #47 Cetilar: Lacorte (B) - Belicchi (G) - Sernagiotto (S)

4 would have to change at least one driver:
* #22 United: Hanson (S) - Albuquerque (P) - Di Resta (P)
* #36 Signatech: Laurent (G) - Negrão (G) - Ragues (S)
* #37 Jackie Chan DC: Tung (G) - Aubry (S) - Stevens (P)
* #38 Jota: Gonzalez (S) - Da Costa (P) - Davidson (P)

The decision has already been reversed

What a surprise :/


Instead, a Pro-Am subclass will be created with a separate podium and trophies.

@ ACO

Just watch the (mostly) am drivers in the Michelin Le Mans Cup make a complete mess of it, and realize why mandating all those bronze/silver drivers in LMP2 might not have been that good an idea after all.

After 42 minutes we are on the 19th lap: 9 have been green, the rest yellow and safety cars

Possibly strike that rule. Oh and add a new "class"

One day there will be 60 classes at Le Mans and I for one can’t wait. Imagine the podium ceremony. I look forward to seeing who’s up there collecting the coveted highest placed no. 43 trophy.

2012 Sebring 12 Hours had 9 classes. The podium ceremony took longer than the race. Trufax.

To be honest, I'd rather have an extra class than the proposed mandated bronze or double silver all over LMP2.


For different reasons like:
* many good gold drivers out of work
* some bronze or silvers totally out of place

It was, apart from the first 40-something minutes. Not much racing and too many stupid accidents.
The last 80 minutes were great to watch though.

Excellent move by Hörr on Cauhaupe for the lead, and with great championship implications as well.
Superb battle between Andlauer and Schiro in GT as well.

Do you foresee any changes to the GTE Pro grid in 2021? I don't. Ford and BMW leaving left a huge hole that has left the class kinda neutered and less exciting just like IMSA GTLM. The Corvette C8R is now eligible for GTE Am though. I imagine all the Porsche runners will switch to the 911 RSR 19.

I can't see any C8s turning up in Am, and no major changes until GT3 replaces GTE in some form or other.
