Prodrive has an-teed up to set its lineup, now it looks like AF Corse is doing the same.

That leaves the American teams' (corvette/viper) lineups looking a bit ordinary. No big name talent to draw fans.

And one has to wonder how much speed does Tommy Kendall inthe viper have left in the tank. Especially against guys like this and Brunno senna, fisichella, etc, if they were to find themselves doing the same stint during the lemans race.

And Kuno Wittmer just hasn't been in that many races with heavy factory involvement.

While it would be a wise decision for Koba to keep his hand in, I'm not sure if the GTE-class is the best thing for him if he wants to go back to F1 in the future. Seems to me like the prototypes are a bit more similar to monopostos and Koba wouldn't want to learn any 'bad habits' that work in a GT car, but not so much in an F1 car...

On a different note I'm really enjoying this revival of sportscar racing, with some big manufacturers ramping up their programs and some big name drivers (ex F1 drivers) lining up on the grid, it's really getting more interesting again (though as I understand it there are some things to work out between WEC/ALMS and Grand-AM in 'Murica). F1's leadership troubles are sportscar racing's gain it would seem. I would love to see a sportscar decade like the 70s or 80s that I've now only read about...
