Yeah, sometimes it's hard to argue about a certain LMP2 or GTE-Am team being included, but other times it's quite obvious they kinda should be included given how the teams have stepped up. That's why I'm against factories just filling out the Pro slots - because now the ACO has to hope that Ebimotors and High Class don't down tools and move to Blancpain or something, because they'll need them when Ford end the program, and Porsche scale back a little.

Gotta treat the wee guys with respect - you'll need them.

Another option would be to just to return to pre-qualifying and determine spots also by performance

And before anyone comes around saying it's thing of the 90's, the last time it happened wasn't too long ago actually - for the GTC class at ILMC/ALMS PLM 2011

And if IndyCar can do the bumping again, why can't we

I'd consider something like pre-qualifying during the LM test day for, lets say, the last 5 slots of LMP2 and GTE-Am.

But then again I'd rather have another United LMP2 than Ford #4 and High Class over Porsche #4.

And the question becomes how does the relatively few ELMS teams being selected for the big race impact ELMS P2 and GTE-Am car counts in 2019 and beyond…

ELMS is in good shape. ACO will only look at ELMS's teams troubles in the very day that the grid starts shrinking. Oh, the cleverness of me!

ELMS is very strong. That LMP2 field is very strong. Hopefully they can make a real LMP3 effort.. like its the European Championship or something. Now it looks like you buy a LMP3 as a team and can choose any championship you want. GTE is great and its growing now.. while they told us that this class would die. WEC isn't affordable for all the GTE teams. And know anyone how much more expensive it is to run a GTE car than run a GT3 car?

The only reason to race a GTE car in the ELMS is to get a Le Mans 24 hrs entry. Nobody remembers today who did win it last year.

You can say pretty much same thing about any ACO series and category though
