I think the Strakka move to McLaren in Blancpain GT is fantastic! I hope you agree. I'd prefer Blancpain GT to WEC LMP2 any day any time.

You're comparing a series with a class.

Good for Strakka. It has become more difficult for real gentleman drivers to have any success in WEC LMP2. Also I think that they are taking a big step as a team, becoming more than "just a hobby" of Leventis.

In terms of its now terminated WEC programme, which was cut short this season due to engine issues, Walmsley says that the timing of the 2017 LMP1 L regulations came too late for the team to make a commitment to the series.

“The regs came too late to get a P1L car ready for 2017 and to stay in the championship next year would have meant acquiring a P2 car,” he explained. “It is a fantastic Championship so expect to see us back racing there again.”
Sounds quite like they're going to do Blancpain and P1L at some point.

Yeah it sounds like that. Hopefully the dome is still eligible.

Good to see a proper full pro AF Corse entry unlike the yellow car this year which had Pier Guidi and Rugolo but was let down by Lathouras. Nothing against him but not on the same level as the other two especially Pier Guidi.

Lathouras was the only reason that car raced though. And with Rugolo and Pier Guidi it was never even possible to race in Pro-Am because of their rating.

You're right. Without Lathouras funding it, it would've never raced and with the two pros they couldn't have been classed as Pro Am. I'd just like to see some actual top line pro lineups for Ferrari in Pro Cup like most other manufacturers have. The last solid Pro car for Ferrari was the Rinaldi green machine with Norbert Siedler and Marco Seefried and they have nowhere the resources that AF Corse has and look what they achieved.

The yellow Ferrari almost won at Paul Ricard though. If they had pitted along with the McLaren, they would probably have taken a comfortable win.

Anyways, will Lathouras be back next year as well?

Here's hoping; as genuine 'Am's go, he was excellent. I remember being really impressed with him in British GT at Oulton Park the year before too.

This thread should be revived since we're in the midst of paul ricard!
What does everyone think of Nissan's chances?

I've been following this young british lad and he's been pretty bigged up all his career but seems like a humble guy https://www.trackdays.co.uk/news/bla...ng-track-days/

I reckon he might have a chance!
