I guess with only three classes next year we should see the top 8 qualifiers from each class go through to Hyperpole, to keep the total at 24 cars? That would see most of the Hypercars getting through but there would still be a mad scramble for the last couple of spots. Should be fun.

If only they would dump the ridiculous hyperpole and go back to the three sessions of 2 hours qualifying......

I have found Hyperpole surprisingly enjoyable. But I sympathise.
Practice sessions after qually is odd.

The hyperpole was entertaining enough but for me, 6 hours of qually over 3 sessions was much better. I agree that having practice sessions which are entirely meaningless for the spectator is pretty stupid. If they're going to have hyperpole, have it between 11 and midnight on the Thursday. But no, that wouldn't work for TV, would it?

I quite enjoyed Hyperpole and from a meeeeja point of view its good to have pics of the polesitter out to the world by 9pm.

However nothing will ever replace strapping in Tomas Enge with some petrol fumes in his tank at 11.55pm on a Thursday night.

i would prefer the old format rather than the hyperpole but things must move to allow the TV schedule to work, having a fixed every hour safty car period will be next to allow for adverts or perhaps we will eventually follow the shortening of the race to 24 minutes of le mans for those with short attention spans. Only joking by the way

If there are four Porsche customer chassis next year you've got to imagine at least a couple would be doing Le Mans.

Could we be getting out towards 14-15 cars?

This is my premature no insight 'gut feel' list:

Confirmed (WEC): 9

Man that is already out of date! At least one privateer Porsche confirmed with JOTA/Hertz/Singer team. Hopefully it's a two-car programme.

I find myself absolutely buzzing. Next year Le Mans will finally feel like it actually matters again, after a five year hiatus. The ACO have saved their centenary race by the skin of their teeth!

Still a bit of work to do clearly but I'd say we can move the Glicks into the semi-confirmed column now for Le Mans next year. So that's maybe 13 cars without factoring in a possible second JOTA Porsche.

So with these Hypercars pretty much confirmed and Ricky Bobby in Garage 56 we are now eating into the LMP2/GTE Am allocations of the last couple of years.
