This bit I disagree with. I love the P3's, perhaps because I've watched them quite a lot recently as my son has been involved, but I think they're great value for money and I'd happily ditch the entire GT classes for an LMP3 class. Back to the all prototype days would suit me down to the ground.

I see not much wrong with the P3s either, they add great entertainment. Of course thereís nothing wrong with a mix of prototype and GT cars, but for the moment, Iíd be happy too if they concentrated more on the prototypes than the GTs. They really suit Le Mans for the time being

Yes i like prototypes but GT's are also an integral part of le mans, and i personally like to see a mixture of both.

Indeed. Having entries that are vaguely similar to mass produced road cars retains the link back to the origins of the event.

It would be sad to see an all prototype field, especially if one or more classes were spec-classes with identical machinery.

I might be a heretic and say I'd prefer an all GT grid to an all prototype one.

Agreed if i had to choose i would be with Guy. GT based cars rather than prototypes, although i am happier with cars that are a step up from normal GT race cars

I love LMP3, but I personally would like a nice split of LMPs and GTs.

I don't really see a future where LMP3 is part of the WEC. LMP2 is strong and healthy (although lacks variety). Just need a sustainable LMP1 class.

If GTE does collapse then I can see the ACO allowing factory GT3 cars just to get manufacturer names in.

I think LMP3 might be one of the best classes, but I don't really think it should be in the full WEC. But I do think the Le Mans support races are a good idea, and I'd extend them and include GT3s more, and maybe even GT4s.

It's a bit late up, but I've gone and posted one. Obviously not as good as normal, but have a go people. Do you know your Le Mans stuff and can see into the future?

What about the format? My feeling is that this shorter format works. The Hyperpole was pretty good and if they ran free practices on Weds and Thursday with Qualifying followed by Hyperpole on Friday it would make sense. The difficulty is the lack of a free day (Friday) for pitlane walkabouts etc.

Thoughts?

As they were discussing on RLM, assuming that we are back to something approaching 'normal' next June, I don't think there will be anything on the Friday. I enjoyed the night session (FP3) but it seemed daft to have four hours of free practice after qualifying. 45 minutes of qually was too short. I would have preferred 2 hours of the 4 in the evening to have been qualifying. Of course, they did what they did to give the teams the running and set-up time after the loss of the test day, but I don't expect that format to be retained. I think they will find a way to retain 'Hyperpole' which I enjoyed a lot more than I expected. I think they will return to much the same format as before, with Hyperpole perhaps left until late on on Thursday evening. In the dark it would be even more exciting....
