View Poll Results: Where will the WEC US round 2017 be held?
Circuit of the Americas (early September? with PCW?) 17 36.96%
Indy - plenty of history and, more importantly, plenty of run off 6 13.04%
Montreal - close enough to the US border and would serve US N-E audience very well 8 17.39%
Road America - the only right choice but lots of 'upgrading' to do to please the FIA blue blazers 7 15.22%
no US (or Canadian) round at all - the WEC doesn't need a race there anyway... 6 13.04%
somewhere else in North or South America (Brazil???) 2 4.35%

Which part of the WEC season in this current format have you enjoyed more over the years.

a) The spring races of Spa and Silverstone and the lead up to Le Mans

or

b) The fly away races in the fall where there is a race every 2/3 weeks.


I like the fall period because you have consistent grids and start to get into a rhythm which you don't get otherwise.

Out of these two, I have preferred A. However I make an exception for Fuji, which I thoroughly enjoy. A feels like a build up to something special.

WEC Technical Director Bernard Niclot has left his post, seemingly due to a fall out with the ACO. He came up with the LMP1 EOT regs, and the crux of his departure was disagreements with the ACO over GTE BOP and the now dead 2020 LMP1 regs, per SC365.

The Ford GT guys need to step up their game. They were horrible at Mexico and COTA.

Now that you mention it, its actually the same for me! I try to watch all races but I usually end up with 2 races a year or so that I miss for whatever reason (lack of time likely).

Circuit Safari is coming to the WEC round of Fuji like they do for Super GT. DSC put up a story on it couple of days ago, saying it would take place sometime before practice 3.

I think this is a great idea and it will connect with fans in Japan. They should do this at more races. I would hope and think it's a success and they will do just that!

Stupid... name? If I attended a race, I would love to go on this 'safari' in a bus while the race cars fly past at speed, it'd be like living a video game

When I looked it up to see what it was I found a video of ss collins going around Fuji.

I've been going round Nurburgring and there was a bus there too.
