Was it always the plan for the 2 new pit garages to be glorified gazebos?

In this case yes. It's just an interim solution to allow two more entries into the race for this year and not part of the planned expansion.

I believe it was in part due to the success of WEC teams working out of awnings at Sebring.

I guess itís too much hassle to extend the pit garages at such short notice. So this solution is better

As you say, it was fine at Sebring. It probably helps that a number of American circuits donít have garages at all

I read in the test day thread that a change got made to the Ford Chicanes prior to the test day weekend. What is being referred to? New curbing, or a reprofile of one of the corners?

Since making the above comment I have seen a video clip via United's Twitter feed and the interior of their gazebo looks pretty fancy once they installed all their branded walls and partition panels.

They are also quoted on DSC to preferring the gazebo to the 'row of woe' garages at the northern end of the pitlane.

New kerbs in the first chicane (AUTOhebdo).

Well, effectively the new kerbs last year. But these are the only works on the track in this part. This year the big works are about the drainage networks inside the track near the ford chicane and they will build a retention pond near the parking P 11 (https://storage.googleapis.com/asset...-mans-2016.pdf). Nothing about the track. If you want to read in French https://www.sarthe.fr/actualites/le-...ans-en-travaux

In the second link published by Eric there is a small video showing the big 2700 m3 collectors which will be hidden under the ground. Mr Couteau explains how the water will be rid of possible hydrocarbons, sands and will be returned in its natural course. They also say that another system like this one will be installed in the south of the circuit.
