It kind of reminds me of why the second series of Fawlty Towers took so long to write. Cleese wanted to make sure that everything was perfect to maximize the comic effect. Artists crave perfection.

Strong line ups! Good chances of getting a 3rd place finish in the LMP1 class.

Does that say something about the funding mechanism for the #6 car? Is it going to be a race by race kind of thing? Great to see Dyson and Smith back into a prototype for sure. Dyson has been doing a bit of everything lately, with a focus on TransAm, but also some off road trucks, iirc, and got in a nascar last week at MidOhio too. I'm sure the Ginette will offer a slightly different driving experience.....

Both crews are for Silverstone only, AFAIK.
That doesn't mean either or both will change on a race-by-race basis, although possible.

So far, only the Silverstone crews have been announced, nothing else.
Apparently there is/was some interest in Ghiotto (fastest Ginetta during the test days) but he is unavailable at Silverstone because of F2 in Spa.

Thanks, and just to be clear, I have no problem with switching drivers every round. It can be good for more drivers to provide feedback as they are developing the car.

Did i dream that when Silverstone WEC was announced as being reduced to a 4 HR Race, that one positive was that there would be extra time for better support races ? I've just checked the Timetable and it's just a Porsche Race, followed by the WEC 4 HR .... Not sure who the "Fans" were that requested this format in the ACO Survey !!!

That's just garbage. If I was going this year, based on that timetable I'd probably only do Saturday.

And Bahrain gets an 8 hour race, for the seventeen people that will turn up...

It’s 4 hours to spite the fans, to be blunt. The polls keep saying Silverstone is popular. So they dropped it and the fans went crazy. So they brought it back but dropped the leave length.

It’s spite. Or stupidity. Either or.

I was annoyed by them reducing the race length but I was still thinking of going on the Sunday but after seeing the timetable for Sunday I wonít be bothering

Genuine Question GT6, i know you're an avid Fan of Sportscars, as i am, but having booked further in advance than most, are you disappointed with just porsche cup alongside ELMS & WEC ? I mean no disrespect, i will also be there, but i feel after the initial hype around reducing to 4 Hrs & how this would free up time, that just having porsches is a real let down.
