    Well if Porsche are out, what do Toyota do? Race le Mans by themselves?
    Actually, they'll probably lose to LMP2. Again. That would be more embarrassing than losing to Porsche.

    Looks like it might be best to revert back to 2012-2013 spec hybrid systems until this can be sorted out. I know that sounds like a step backwards, but the only 3 manufacturers who built cars are pretty much backing out. They don't allow private teams to run these cars, so what else is there to do other than disband hybrid LMP1 entirely at this point?

    Wow... If Toyota goes out, then LMP1 of today is ruined...how will Le Mans run in 2018 if this happens, with the fact Porsche said they're sure they're going out this year???

    Give them a choice? Hybrid or non-hybrid for both factory and privateer. BoP will be tricky. Can't see it being impossible though.

    WEC to go to a "superseason" for 2018/19 that features two 24 Hours Of LeMans races

    https://www.motorsport.com/wec/news/...-hours-948034/

    Now I really don't know what to make of this. They will run a superseaon of 9 races between 2018 & the first part of 2019.

    Provisional 2018/19 schedule

    • 5 & 6 April: The Prologue, Circuit Paul Ricard (FRA) **

    • 4 & 5 May: WEC 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (BEL)

    • 16 & 17 June: 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA)

    • 13 & 14 October: 6 Hours of Fuji (JPN)

    • 03 & 04 November: 6 Hours of Shanghai (CHN)

    • February 2019: Place and event TBC

    • 15 & 16 March 2019: 12 Hours of Sebring (USA) *

    • 3 & 4 May 2019 WEC 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (BEL)

    • 15 &16 June 2019: 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA)

    Gone from the schedule are Silverstone, Austin, Mexico City, Nurburgring, and Bahrain. But they return to Sebring in March 2019 to run a 12 hour race.

    ...You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thank you David for the opportunity, thank you for the wisdom, thank you for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.'

    The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship has announced a strategic alliance with Turn 10 Studios, developer of the renowned racing game franchise Forza Motorsport.

    More than 100 cars from IMSA history will be in the new game, as well as nine tracks – Daytona, Sebring, Long Beach, Lime Rock, Watkins Glen, Road America, Virginia International Raceway, Laguna Seca and Road Atlanta.

    FOUR tracks i want on PC2 are going to be on Forza.
