For sure, are there more competitive cars? Yes, is it better with closer racing? Yes. However, it doesnt engage me anymore. Im sorry.
I'm with you on that. I get bored after watching for 20 mins on tele.Only the volume of cars makes it a bit interesting .I'll leave it at that for now.

Have to agree with you. Too much spec equipment, whilst keeping the racing close, spoils the whole show. If I want to see and hear spec cars I will watch the BTCC - I have always watched Endurance racing for the variety of chassis/engine combinations and the different manufacturers takes on the rules. ELMS just doesn't do it for me - yes, lots of cars and some good racing at times but they all look the same! Even difficult to tell LMP2 from LMP3 sometimes.

I applaud Stefan Ratel and SRO for at least staying away from mandating too much spec stuff - great to hear all of the different engine notes, watching recognisable body shapes and still having some great racing with no one manufacturer winning every time. Blancpain has it's faults with SC/FCY stuff and mandatory pit stop times but the whole show is just more spectacular at the moment as you are never sure who is going to win.

SRO option is just as bad

Anyway we have confirmation of no-show from Carlin Dallara at Spa, which will mean there will be just two chassis in each class next time round. So that brings it to just 6 unique chassis / 5 constructors / 4 engines in a field of roughly 40. We are looking at new record low here, there's about as much going here as at that 6-8 car ASLMS grid 5 years ago
