2016 ELMS Round 1 - 4 Hours of Silverstone Race Thread



After a season that surprised almost everyone with its twists and turns from race to race, the European Le Man Series returns for what should be another thrilling season. The one complaint that could be levelled at the ELMS has been duly noted, as this year sees an extra race provide both more action for the spectators and another chance for the teams to mount their title charges.

The title challengers from LMP2 are all back to face each other, although Jota now race under the G-Drive banner. The rest of the 15-strong LMP2 field do not shame themselves for quality or quantity, but on the former they are soundly bested by the 20 entries of the LMP3 class! However, do not think the slew of prototypes means that LMGTE is a third wheel in the entry list by any means, with 9 cars and many hot shoes ready to put their markers down for the season.

Pirate link? I thought ELMS was free to view; it certainly was last year. Has something changed that I missed?

If any of you gents make it to the race in person, stop by and say hi if you see me around the #77 GTE car/pits/paddock! It's my first trip to Silverstone and I'm really looking forward to the race weekend.

That huge McDonalds logo is even more displeasing to the eye than it was on Larbres previously.

It's free, you only need eye patch for that other cashed-in series.

No, the ELMS live stream should still be as free as the internet intended it to be. The ACO have yet to recognise the untapped revenue in making all ~2000* of us pay for the privilege of watching...

Maybe Maelochs meant that post for the WEC race thread?

*I think the average is closer to 1500, but I remember seeing just north of 2000 connections in the closing minutes of the Estoril race.

Somebody here wasn't paying sufficient attention ...


and that person looks suspiciously like me. I will investigate further.

TY in advance for some other pirate links, too ... unless Fox covers some unnamed series again this year. Someone will have to check. I will find out who.

What's wrong with the M? At least the team has sponsorship from a real company!

Yup, Mcdonalds' logo doesn't bother me either. Actually, I quite like it and, as you said, it's very nice to see a real sponsor in a sportscar, for once. It's so rare.

If the ELMS is to survive then non motorsport sponsors will always be required, and if Mcdonalds decides to set up at silverstone as an alternative to "Divine Burgers" then anyone who complains is probably a "Veggie"
More than happy to see cars with well known sponsors and we should all be happy to see sportscar racing looking attractive to major corporations

I just loathe the brand myself, that is all. Obviously it's good for the sponsored team itself

Nothing to do with the team at all. It's a driver deal like all the rest
