View Poll Results: Where will the WEC US round 2017 be held?
Circuit of the Americas (early September? with PCW?) 17 36.96%
Indy - plenty of history and, more importantly, plenty of run off 6 13.04%
Montreal - close enough to the US border and would serve US N-E audience very well 8 17.39%
Road America - the only right choice but lots of 'upgrading' to do to please the FIA blue blazers 7 15.22%
no US (or Canadian) round at all - the WEC doesn't need a race there anyway... 6 13.04%
somewhere else in North or South America (Brazil???) 2 4.35%

Has a date for the Le Mans/WEC/ELMS entry been revealed yet? I think its in February if I remember usually.

That is a big day for sportscar racing. I would equate that day for sportscars like the NFL draft, NBA draft, the NCAA basketball tourny selection day, the FIFA World Cup group stage draw, and the NHL trade deadline.

Autoart 1/18 GTR-LM NISMO was delivered to Tsugio Matsuda.
Matsuda tried aero test by this model car.
He says that real car also lacked DF.

Autosport have published their top 10 LMP1 drivers for 2016.
For those without access the list is shown below.

1 Di Grassi
2 Buemi
3 Jani
4 Hartley
5 Bernhard
6 Webber
7 Duval
8 Lotterer
9 Kobayashi
10 Conway

That list makes for some interesting rankings.

The WEC needs to convert GTE-Am into an GT3 class like IMSA has done.

I think there is a lot of potential for GTE to be a fantastic series of races in 2017. Hopefully they will get a lot more TV time too.

I think that it might be a down year before a much bigger 2018. But still I feel like the entry list isn't completely finalized.
