Supposedly the Auto-BoP system that they use now is good at detecting the potential of building materials being loaded into cars. We'll have to wait to find out, but it certainly did improve towards the end of the WEC season last year.

GTE Pro BoP is automated with no human interaction. Am and the EoT are manual.

Edit: For what it's worth, here's my thoughts on LMP1. I'm sure many won't agree with it (Looking at you, Sprinkles ) but it's my opinion. http://theracingline.net/2018/aco/lm...-mans-24-hour/

Fore my money we need more bright yellows, greens, blues. Too many of the colour schemes are bland and subdued. My favourite in recent years was the beautiful orange/gold of Michael Shank in 2016. A real eye-popping winner.....

I don't entirely agree but it is quite well written. An article gives a bit more space to fully lay out your thoughts.

For the record (although you probably got it), I was poking fun at us not agreeing. Meant 100% in jest of course.
