wow. lifetime highlight for sure. agree. i still believe the 2016 GTE results were staged by the ACO. they went for the hollywood story of ford winning again after fifty years. besides, that ford GT ... isn't really a GT, is it? from the moment i saw the first pictures of that car, i really thought they'd killed the GTE class. good to see the other manufacturers responded and BoP did the rest of course. i think, the biggest shortcoming of the WEC is the importance of the le mans race and the power it gives to the ACO. porsche were even willing to compromise the results of the first two races of the season (silverstone and spa), by running in low downforce configuration. they were just using those races as test sessions. it'll be the first time this season, they'll run in high downforce config this weekend at the nürburgring. manufacturers know only too well the general public rates the 24h over the world championship, effectively devaluating the championship. it's the team effort i appreciate. i feel it's less macho driven than F1. dr.ulrich congratulating peugeot or porsche after a win and vice versa. or the porsche guys genuinely feeling distressed after toyota's misfortune last year. that sort of thing you know.
