Juntos should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Consciously, sir Sarrazin, consciously. Hope the Russians can repair the blue Dallara or we won't have any nothing worth to watch on Saturday.

Apparently the car is not that damaged and it's weekend isn't affected by the off.

Ahoy Comrades,

Is the only way to watch the full race to pay the 5-Euro fee on the WEC website?

(I can see that Eurosports have the start and finish on the television but switch to cycling for the middle section)

So, watertight mountaineering boots at the ready, thermo underwear, rainponcho, winterjacket and a set of gloves, just to be sure. I'll leave my videocamera at home and'll only use my cameraphone. I say: bring it on!

Well, it seems in FP1 that Toyota were maybe screwing around, considering that in FP3 they already ran faster than last year's pole time. Possibly a moot point given that it might rain for qualifying.

Also seems that unless they figure something out that Rebellion will have a fight to better SMP this weekend. It seems that their LM kit isn't suited to Spa while SMP are running their sprint kit and Toyota's low downforce kit probably has more downforce than SMP's sprint bodywork does.

Apologize for the double post but I think the edit timer timed out on my last post. It actually seems, based on a photo I saw on Facebook, that Rebellion did revert back to their sprint kit for FP3, probably in anticipation of rain.

Did you get an answer to this?

For such a big series it is really hard to follow

The WEC app is the best place to watch. You can also watch it in Eurosport player.

Forecast is for snow overnight and morning, then sun/showers (rain/sleet) on and off the rest of the day. Temperatures (with a cold wind) not more than 2C all day. Could be pretty chaotic, if it sleets on-and-off all race, possibly on one part of the track but not another.

I'm assuming that any settled snow can be cleared off the track by race start. They should have a few hours to do that.

Btw it's clear from the coverage that there is no spectator viewing at all at the bottom of Eau Rouge/Raidillon where the grandstands and food court have been replaced by the RallyX track.

GTE pole at 2 min 12 at SPA. That is very fast. I think that is just a couple seconds off the 2013-2016 era of LMP2 cars now

In Europe: that, Eurosport Player or Motorsport.tv. None are free and the WEC website is the cheapest without discounts.

Sounds like Rebellion are counting on bad weather to make their high downforce package work. Looks like their prayers have been answered. It's a winter wonderland.

Well, I'll be relying on you guys both on site and on this forum to keep me informed of the goings on at Spa. Velocity/Motor Trend will only basically be showing the first and last hour or so of the race (like has been typical of the sprint/non-Le Mans races).

Granted, I'll be away from my laptop for a while to watch something else for a couple of hours starting at 6:00 US Eastern time (I won't say what since I might be in for some ridicule LOL).

And it seems that outside of Toyota, running LM aero in LMP1 just is a no-go this weekend. Rebellion seem to have had problems, even in the dry, getting their LM kit to work for them at Spa and reverted back to their sprint aero, SMP are running sprint aero. And the only reason why Toyota have gotten their LM aero to work is that their LM aero probably makes as much if not maybe more downforce than the privateers sprint aero for less drag.

Even though one of the SMP BR Dallaras on fast laps got reasonably close to the Toyotas, I think that Toyota will still have the edge big time in the race unless something happens. Granted, the same often happened with Audi and Peugeot back in the day when they were the solo factory teams in the ALMS, Le Mans and the ELMS.
