    To be honest, I haven't seen any solid reason to believe in it existing. THis just further casts doubt in having an LMP1 class.

    I'm not upset. It's just Goodwin typical rubbish. All of it. It's something I've noticed about him over time.

    Let me rephrase the question then, which parts(s) do you feel are rubbish?

    I don't have an opinion on any of it. I'll wait and see what will happen regardless of what Mr negative nanny decides to print.

    FIA doesn't know how to run a world sport car series for too long in a long term format. Perhaps another situation like 1994 has to happen, considering that the current atmosphere of Endurance racing is at around the globe.

    Would kill the series for the European marketplace with stupid o'clock races. I say that as someone who pays to watch WEC but doesn't watch the COTA race due to the start time.

    If Europe wasn't the heartland for this Championship it wouldn't be a problem. The trouble is I believe it is.

    So the biggest problem with the WORLD Endurance Championship is the WORLD part?

    No. How would you like the IMSA series to have one race in Europe and then decide to run the bulk of the series there?

    Well, looking at the link has reminded me that the WEC is this weekend from Mexico. Time to look at the Fustercluck schedule Fox Sports has this time.

    Probably more idiotic switching between a channel a good amount of people get and a channel that only a few people via a high Tier Cable package can get.

    Other than Le Mans? As long as I dont have to pay the bills for shipping equipment and crew over I would be fine with a IMSA race at Imola or wherever.

    So in this scenario IMSA has become the ELMS?

    Not sure how that would effect that sanctioning body that runs it still being operated in the USA, but ok.

    So IMSA would become the 2011 ILMC then? :confused:

    All I see listed is 2 hours Sunday evening tape delay, which 2 of the 6 hours is anybody's guess I suppose...on FS2 no less! This is why I pay for the stream.

    I would too if I could afford. Alas, I'm stuck with Golf Sports 1.

    Well, guess I'll be missing this race then since I'll be at a family reunion on Sunday and will be in a car all day Monday.

    Stevenson is done for good in both WSC and CTSCC, effective immediately.
