Silverstone WEC race is on the Saturday instead of the Sunday (ELMS race switches to Sunday in 2020), so wondering if track action will begin on Thursday instead of Friday...?

Would you look at that, they actually did it.

Fuji even further back in November seems destined for a soaking (even moreso than its usual October date), but that's a nitpick in what is otherwise a good calendar. Hopefully Kyalami is day/night as the IGTC race was.

Pretty much a dream calendar, and at least as of now Sebring is listed as a 1000 mile race. Would've liked to maybe see Monza before LM as an appetizer for the big show. But Spa is the traditional pre-LM race now and it does give more use to LM aero packages outside of LM, LM test weekend, WEC Prologue and maybe Spa.

Best WEC Calendar so far. Any ideas on improving it would be very picky. Impressive stuff.

There's also no WEC Prologue per se. It's been replaced basically by a combination of the LM test weekend and a WEC Promoters test at Silverstone the week before the 6 Hours weekend.

So far everyone's pretty happy with this calendar. Does that mean hell has frozen over? The ACO did something right by most of us for once?

I always saw Shanghai as a necessary evil, but not sorry to see it go. I liked Zuhai as an ILMC venue - not a Tilkedrome and it doesn't take a big crowd to make it look like it's attended well. Hope they figure out a way of going back to China some day.

Fantastic calendar with the exception of Bahrain. Monza is a most welcome addition. Kayalami should make for some spectacular racing too.

I was hoping to see them go to Australia or somewhere in South America like my favorite in Argentina. But glad to see Monza. I'm not convinced Kyalami is a good track for these cars but we'll see because I haven't witnessed any races on the revised track.

I would have liked a four hour race. Just one for variety. But it’s decent.

Not sure if the Kyalami will be much cop, but good to be back there and see.
