The Malaysian Le Mans Series.

SO ACO will presumably host FIVE events at Sepang annually they must really love it there.

Did they not get enough interest for P3/only so they had to add GT(3) too...

Are there LM auto invites...

Doubt it but it helps justify Asian based teams purchasing these cars since the current 4 Asian events in a year schedule gets a nice expansion.

I wish the Malaysians would put money to host a WEC event. Sepang is one of the very few new circuits, on F1 calendar, that I actually like. Sadly, I don't see it happening. At least it's great to have lower prototypes there, though.

I was 'fine' with it for years, I mean the profile wasn't quite as sterile as most of Tilke's later work. The two straights next to the stadium stands were kinda iconic actually. But then they poured tons of asphalt to majority of it like every other F1 track (didn't have it originally, being 90's track). Also the everyday tropical downpour means that you have to race in morning or noon unless you want boat races, so you are very limited in what you can do in todays world where red flags are thrown at the first drops of rain. The immense humid heat is a killer too.

PS I actually do like 'boat races' but FIA does not. Even though the track is ridiculously wide and the safety areas too...

The rain isn't so bad around May through July, but April is the end of the wet season. So a race there should be early Summer or Spring for those in the northern hemisphere. That's after f1 goes there, so it could work.

Just a mini-rant, so disregard if you want: I do feel that I need to say that in recent days I've been depressed and frustrated, and at time times, motorsports has provided me with a sens of frustration over the year, especially the past decade or so.

So I'll say this: If you like what you're seeing, appreciate it now. Because it might be gone in a short while and replaced by something less likable.

Firstly, I'm sorry to hear about your sad/depressed last few days(I also have those quite often) and sincerely hope things gets better for you.

What did you mean about motorsports, though. Did you mean motorsports were, sometimes, a relief or an outlet for frustration, over the past decade or so?

That's what it ends up being for me, sometimes. I love racing regardless of my state, but when I'm sad, depressed, frustrated, I guess it also serves me as an escape from that

I've told many times I don't particularly care for drivers in sportscar racing, but in the world of ever more pro-am implementations, can people here list series / categories still 100% free to enter with *whatever* lineup? And by whatever I don't mean some 87 year old taxi driver from Berlin who's never seen racing circuit before, or licenceless kids fresh from karting or whatever, but you know... from plausible to the superstars free. In essence, no Proam.

GTE Pro. It's the only ACO category with no restrictions.

10 years ago we probably would have trouble listing enough series and categories which did have driver restrictions.

Or factory/privateer, for that matter.

Super GT I think is pretty open in driver age rank/talent. Some guys have been there in Japan for decades but still do gt300/500.

Yeah there are some old guys in GT300 vastly experienced but with a range of talent, one of the Lotus drivers is in his 60s I believe. In GT500 Motoyama and Krumm are in their mid 40s.

The Pro Cup in Blancpain GT is open for everyone regardless of driver rating.
