It is about time you made the effort and book for Spa, you know you will love it Andrew.

You're right, I need to go. Bit the missus and I wanted to downsize first and that just isn't happening..… But I'd despair if I'm not out of it by this time next year….

Barcelona for the Prologue. What did Pail Ricard do? Is it the time of year, or did all those years of campaigning from Montserrat Caballé finally and fittingly pay off?

I was thinking maybe the French GP had something to do with it, but that's a month prior. So the logical conclusion is it's because of Alonso being Spanish

That was certainly the conclusion I came to...not that I'm a cynic or conspiracy theorist.

It doesn't but as you can read here Neveu and co. might have different ideas after March:

Yes, it says the following:

“This is fair to say, ‘to-be-confirmed’ because we need to have some [conditions] after the first event. At this moment the plan is to go to Sebring.
“We have to race first in 2019. If it works well, if the paddock is happy, we normally have a commitment to say that it’s for several years.
Of course it remains to be soon if the first race is a success but it's clearly stated that if it is the goal is to remain at Sebring. I don't see how this leads you to 'fully expect[ing] Sebring to replaced after 2019'.

Because Sebring is the opposite of everything that the WEC has done up to this point (Grade 1 tracks, VIP facilities, shared events, etc.).

It is indeed unique, next to Le Mans. But seeing as how the tickets were sold out in record time there seems to be enough interest anyway and I don't see why they would just keep it to one event if the points you mention are any consideration.

I imagine that the ACO had to do quite of bit of work to be allowed onto the Sebring weekend. Given how popular Sebring is, and how lackluster COTA was, I don't see them turning back on that any time soon. The fact it isn't Grade 1 but the ACO still went there shows how much they wanted it. Although they had talks with Indy, but Indy wanted to be paid by WEC to race, whilst WEC wanted to be paid by Indy lol.

But then again, Silverstone was one of the most popular events and they tried to drop that and then cut the race distance, so who knows what they're thinking.

Finding a fitting spot on the calendar would have been a much bigger challenge for Indy as well as the mid-west climate is obviously much more restricting than the Florida one.
