Next year will be a great season if more manufacturers enter the GT and GTC classes. I'm not sure if there will be much interest in the LMPC class at first, but if the LMP class is the combination of P1 and P2, it'll be interesting to see the outcome. P2 cars have always been for privateers and if they can best P1 cars like the Porsche RS Spyders did, then manufacturers producing P1 cars may not be inclined to enter. Hopefully Audi makes a comeback next year or the year after!

Interesting re-jig of the Sports Car regs. It is a shame in a way that GT1 has gone, but it was unsustainable, once Aston Martin had reached its goal of beating the 'vettes to the Le Mans title and lost interest and became the most expensive one-make championship going. It also confirms the end of the dream the ACO had of a GT again winning the LM 24 hours outright. I hope the chance is also taken to equalize the diesel/petrol equation so that there is some proper competition in the prototype class, a chance to develop a diesel GT, or even some sort of hybrid ? Looking forward to something different in the winners circle for a change.
