Frankly I'm annoyed at this. They turn up with there shitty silent and ugly diesels and walking all over the alms teams and bugger off again it annoys me.

There's a link somewhere.

celebration winner

That part is 100 % correct, they sound like Ford Fiesta’s and look hideous.

I was also surprised to hear that Audi are entering Sebring. There is a wider point, though. The ACO no longer really cares about ALMS anymore. Not only does the WEC not include Road Atlanta, but nor Sebring as well. These are ALMS’ biggest events, yet the ACO have snubbed these very well attended events.

The alienation of ALMS is partly responsible for the pathetic prototype classes. ALMS is merely a poodle of the ACO, and it’s absolutely correct that ALMS has merged with Grand AM for 2014. ALMS has tried to revive the declining LMP cars in America, but it hasn’t worked.

A real American series with American traditions will give the merged series a fighting chance of growth and survival. It was abundantly clear that propping up a European idea stopped working in ALMS when the prototype manufacturers left.

one of the big reasons prototype has been declining is Audi and peugeot domination the biggest races of the year, that and the rules changing too often.

Most estimations of the new series have LMP2 and DP's sharing the top class.

That sounds fine to me.
