Agreed
That'd be wicked
Might be a bit tight though
But I guess it isn't as bad as Baltimore

There will be an announcement at the Le Mans test this weekend in regards to a major fan favourite team (manufacturer?) returning to Le Mans.

Also strong rumors circulating of a joint effort between McLaren and Honda on an LMP1 car.

Oh yeah there is actually a USCC race right now at Detroit but it's only Prototype and GTD. Really miss ALMS personally and I won't be watching this race. I hate how they don't have every class at every race.

Honestly if you didnt watch the detroit you missed a cracker, not a fan of how they do the series but do like the GTD class alot more than GTC also the daytona prototypes are pretty cool over the p1 class

I really wish the US would just have ALMS with P2 and GTE or something like that.

You obviously haven't been paying attention if you think the Porsche LMP1 isn't competitive...

Probably could of won Spa if it hadn't had issues (In terms of pace it was matching the Toyota blow for blow), Whilst Audi have struggled in the opening two round of WEC. However they now seem to be back on terms with the other two if the times at the Le Mans test day are anything to go by. Add Nissan to the mix next season and woaa what a series we have.

As for the Detroit race... Do the Taylor brothers not know that sportscar racing is a non-contact sport, Driving standards from the #10 was atrocious throughout that race. Biggest joke was the series official not doing anything about it.

WEC, ELMS >>> TUSC any day of the week.

ALMS and Grand Am should never have merged. If they wanted to do anything about ALMS they should've just tweaked classes and made changes. Both series were fine by themselves and the fact that they have merged now means we won't see an LMP1 car at the Sebring 12 Hours.

I watched the first hour of silverstone, to me that was hard racing including them effectivly putting themselves in the wall on the last lap, i dont miss the p1 out of alms as for 90% of the season last year it was 2 cars except for sebring and road atlanta, they only merged as nascar bought alms

Detroit race was epic. I could not imagine that a race on that circuit could be worth a !@#$, but it surprised me. And I highly doubt the two US LMP1 cars would have battled so hard on the last lap had it been still ALMS.

As for 'tube framed relics'/'high tech wonders', I go to the track to see a race, not learn about technology.
