WEC 2019/20 season

Different race lengths!

4 Hours of Silverstone
6 Hours of Fuji
4 Hours of Shanghai
8 Hours of Bahrain (oh god)
6 Hours of Sao Paulo
1000 Miles of Sebring
6 Hours of Spa
24 Hours of Le Mans

Probably deserves a new thread, I suppose.

Shorten Silverstone and add to Bahrain! That's what the fans want!

At least they're trying...

A heavily revised 2012 season calendar.

Yeah, when I completed that survey, a shortened Silverstone race and an 8 hour race in Bahrain was exactly what I had in mind.

Can't see this calendar going down well, the right ingredients but in the wrong quantities

I like it. Definately much better than the 'Superseason'.
Apart from the race lenghts and lack of say 1000 km races.

But there are actual winter races plus one of them is Interlagos.
Good direction.

It's quite meaningless.... just set 4h or 6h for all "sprint" races.

should have been the 45 minutes of Shanghai and the half hour of Bahrain let alone 8 hours...

I bet these "fans" also voted to shorten Le Mans...

Sebring and Interlagos are welcome additions.

Swap those durations around and I'd be happy, but only a 4 hour race at Silverstone - very disappointing to say the least. In fact any race dropping down to 4 hours is wrong to me, 6 should be the minimum.

Best make the most of this weekend I guess...

Brilliant, a dozen people and a few camels can enjoy an 8 hour race and Silverstone and gets reduced to a 4 hour race, wonderful work WEC

The fans asked for varied lengths, to be fair. Just...this isn't what they had in mind.

WEC seems absolutely determined to minimise or drop the Silverstone race, despite fan surveys and feedback.

By reading ACO press release I got to the conclusion that there is an enormous WEC fanbase in Bahrain!



Please do not BS us. We are not stupid.

I think it has a lot to do with the huge paddock of both ELMS and WEC and the dreadful infrastructure of Silverstone.

8 hours of Bahrain don't bother me at all, it's a very good track and the racing is always good.

2 paddocks in use for ELMS and WEC. Reducing the race from 6 to 4 doesn't really change much in that regard.
