Also in response to your sharing of the KMax Bentley news Bcarr6, great to have Parente back in the main series. Always an exciting driver.

Who would likely be driving though?

Ideally at least one with experience of the Frey effort 2 years ago?
Aurélien Panis, Thomas Neubauer and Frank Bird were testing it last year.

Final race at the Ring confirmed to be an evening race. That's awesome. Bit more variety.

Really? I get the sunset part but do we need three of 5 endurance races in partial darkness?

Honestly it’s not the most enjoyable to watch a bunch of headlines coming towards you on YouTube

You can enjoy it at Spa, and somewhat still at Paul Ric, but how much of it do we really need?

I agree. And don't really think the Nurburgring during the autumn is a good idea for sunset race, as we have seen with the Endurance races in the past at that place. I can remember a lot of fog...

I think endurance racing should do more at night tbh. I'd even consider a Bathurst style early start for some darkness.

I don't think I can enjoy anything at Paul Ricard.

Now I do agree with the Bathurst style morning start, that is always cool. Probably doesnt quite work for a 3hr race though

I love the Bathurst start...something very different.

tbh though on a whole I don't like races that are purely night races...its crap on TV and hard to identify cars
