I'm not really worried about the class splits.
In the WEC, there's only 8 LMP1's (at best) in a field of over 50 cars, so if we get more than that were ahead of the FIA. ;)
So as long as we hit 1:4, I think it would OK. 8)
Just so long as it doesn't just turn into another de facto GT3 season.

I think there'll be plenty of prototype runners, without intervention. ;)

Could always do a split season where everybody has to race one for the 1st half the season and the other for the 2nd half like we have done in the past?

Modern here too. Split class sounds good.

Yeah, that would probably work.

Shame that Assetto doesn't have too many LMP2s to run an LMP2 class (aside from the AER Mod with the Oreca and Corvette DPs).

And my new job has meant I can't participate in the Tuesday night races anymore =[ Thursdays I might be able to stretch to come to.

Bad luck about Tuesdays. You clearly have to quit that job, for work/life balance.

I'm thinking 4 tracks, where everyone does one pass in LMP1 or GT3, then swaps to the other class for a second pass through the same 4 tracks.


Or would people rather just stick in their class and have more circuits? You wouldn't be able to switch classes - it messes standings up too much.

I get it now....  :o


Another thought... in the real WEC, the different classes have separate qualifying sessions, to get clearer track. While that sounds like a good idea, in the interests of time we'd probably have a combined qualifying.


And I chose GT3 cars instead of GTE (GT2's etc) because they're a little bit slower and we get more lapping by the LMP1 class that way.

Ditto.

But without any restriction on changing cars if you 'really' need to.

I'd be OK with changing cars if you really can't stand your class, but I think it would be fair if you couldn't carry your points from one class to the next. Just because you might be able to go well in a GT3, for example, doesn't mean that you could have got the same points in an LMP1 and vice versa.

I'd like to see us stick to 1 car throughout the season rather than swap.  For those of us who don't race/practice a lot, having one car for a season we improve with the setup and driving the car.. swapping can often feel foreign (for me) and takes a few races to get into the groove of a new car.

I think LMP1/GT3 would be good. The only newish gt3 would be the Audi LMS 2016.. there's no other gt3 class that came out in the last update?
