And some Gt500 cars from Super GT also. An NSX and a Z from memory but they never showed.

For obvious reasons, the season's been kind of clunky with million cancellations, including the latest one at WEC Spa they had announced just few weeks ago. However they have managed to pull off one event so far, at Donington last month. And while it was a sorry micro grid of 8 cars (including the previously mentioned weirdo "GT2" Corvette with GT1 sticker in it & random old Cup Porsche), there were two SMP LMP2s! Just a crying shame that mere 5 year old cars are here, obsolete from ACO racing while other spec cars get million year renewals, but anyway good to have at least a place for them in historics. These cars belong to the track, not collecting dust somewhere. We've seen enough of Group C historics for a lifetime, but not these

Catch SMP at 1:20 for example

They also won overall R1 from Lola B12/60 Judd LMP1, and came second and third to that Lola in R2

The grids on Peter Auto's ERL are pretty stellar though

Yes they are/were amazing... What a great period of time we lived through. But everything does come to end eventually, as they say.

Hopefully next year, we'll get some professionally shot coverage again, at least Silverstone Classic should be given

They're supposed to be with the US based HSR in October at Road Atlanta. I'm going to go WAY out on the limb to guess no, sadly they aren't. The lineups look great.

I was at Paul Ricard during the Dix Mille Tours of Peter Auto, it was so cool to see this cars racing again. But i'm feeling old now, it was my first time "historic" cars racing which I also saw racing when they were modern

Nice, don't think either of those will ever make the trip sadly. The Panoz guys should since they'll be back "home"

The weirdest was watching the Whelen Corvette DP run at Petit in October '16 and then appear in HSR at The Mitty in April '17. Or the LMPC cars running at Petit AND HSR the same years. But that's HSR, run what ya have and we'll figure it out.
