Well I couldn't possibly comment on that ( Wink ), but the ACO will be testing double-file restarts in testing - as they've announced.

In know that's not real.

The aco and safety cars don't mix as they always screw them up by using 2 or 3 safety cars at a time. They get it so badly wrong its stupid. They just shoundnt do safety cars at all.
Safety cars should be made to pick up the lead car !!! WITH JUST ONE SAFETY CAR USED

and for goodness sake use just 1 safety car

One safety car? Thatís not enough, I think to really spice up proceedings there should be five safety cars for maximum entertainment and confusion. I think last year the ACO wanted to mix things up and shake up the show by having multiple safety cars, I think it was a great idea Ė now itís time to develop this invention.

Double-file restarts should be introduced by every racing series in the world; NASCAR has them, IndyCar has them, now even Le Mans will have them. The double-file restarts could be something that fans look forward to, they could be named: ďthe shootout restartĒ.

With a track so long as LE MANS ! is there a need for a safety car other then to slow cars down in the rain !!!! If there is an accident then the only slowing of cars is .... before the accident.. passing .. and just after the accident ! this could be done by FLAGS /LIGHTS, the rest of the lap you don't need to drive at a slow speed !!!!

I totally agree. If there werenít safety cars, drivers and spectators could get injured or die. Safety cars maintain safety standards and also improve the show.

racing dosen't need gimmicks (sportscar). Even if it's really boring tough.

boring shows do. (single seaters, stock and touring cars) even if it's exciting.

the belgians don't use safety cars any more and neither does vln it's the future.

Double-file restarts are not a gimmick, they are merely a different way of lining up cars on restarts - it's hardly a revolution.

Makes no sense with the contradiction, how can something be boring, and exciting?

If anything, with how boring long-distance racing is, as boring as knitting - long distance racing needs them the most. But that's opening an old can of worm's... Wink Laughing

indycar is show racing at the moment, barber was good and long beach wasn't.

More like exciting and frantic racing v boring races that go on for ten years. For example, F1 races have been the same length for decades, so have touring car races Ė therefore there is no tweaking in that respect. They happen to be exciting for most of the time.

Yeah, La Sarthe is an awesome race track; itís of the best in the world, if not the best in the world. But, a great track layout and loads of history doesnít make for interesting racing.

Of course, not all sportscar racing is snoozy and go on for ten years. FIA GT and Grand-Am prove that sportcar racing can be very entertaining.

Not really. yes it maybe for people who love sprint racing and open wheel but If you loook at le mans 24hours, staying up for the whole event. its brilliant chat between people and the race. its just the best and no event can match it.....simple as.

Cool, I understand there is a big social element to the race. But for me at least, that isn't what interests me about motor racing - it's the racing itself and the on-track product that I'm interested in. And if that doesn't entertain, then there is something wrong. A strong social element does not make a race more interesting, and that counts for any motorsport. That's a minor aspect, the actual racing should be focus of attention as ultimately, that's why motorsport exist's - to race. And if that racing isn't exciting, then that's a problem.

I don't think F1 could be classified as 'sprint racing', as it goes on for a max of two hours, or ALMS - and I like those. Also, I never said I like all open wheel racing. A lot of open wheel racing is crap, only a few series are good. My position is very clear, I don't like Le Mans-style racing in Europe - that's it. Why ALMS is so much better, I don't know.

yes i agree there but you look at LMS its 6hours endurance races because le mans is an endurance event abd you look at the GT2 race at Paul Ricard it wasn't over till the last hour of the race when AF corsa car had a problem....and The ACO run LMS, IMSA run ALMS. ACO are always going to long races like 6hours so it runs close to le mans style.

well you can really is not endurance racing is it.......some races in F1 go near two hours the first the 3 races were only 1hour 30-37minutes....If you look at ALMS they have a mixure of 12,10,4,6,2.45,2 hours races.......there is differances which is good.
