Just dumped the Wikipedia's article and got back to this thread.

They aim to have at least 6 races in 2011! That's a tall number indeed. I really hope that Suzuka gets the third race.

Asa should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I guess the other 3 races will be: Sebring 12 hours, LM24 itself and maybe Monza or Spa 1000k?

I would expect it to be 2 in america - Sebring / PLM
2 in Europe - Spa & Silverstone
2 in Asia / Middle East

LM24 will remain separate.

I havent quite grasped the 5 races bit this year - is that 5 races inc the cup and LM24 or is is 5 races plus the cup and LM24??

According to DSC they already announced that they will enter the LM 24 race with 3 cars.

But the LM 24 is NOT included in the 5 races Downforce, so they still need to add one more race in either the LMS or the ALMS.

The ACO press release is a little confusing as it states:
Quote:
Competitors will be obliged to compete in all 3 races to be included in the overall classification. In addition, they must also take part in 5 races run under the Le Mans label (the 24 Hours excepted) to be eligible for the Intercontinental Cup.
This seems to suggest they must participate in 3 + 5 = 8 races?!

As I've said before, I would love Monza to get the second European race. Odds are against it, I know. My only complain to Spa is that it already has a 24-hour race. We could almost rule out completely Dubai, so we have Yas Island, Losail and Bahrain. Which of them you think has better chances?

Good start, Mal.

North America: Sebring & PLM - As Sebring starts the official international Sports/Proto/GT racing year, it is a must for many teams looking to LeMans. So it stands to reason.

Europe: Silverstone & Spa/Monza/Nurburgring - Pre- or post-LeMans is a good deal, as many of the teams visiting will be able to get some racing in that will fit nicely into their budgets.

Asia: Best guesses are Suzuka & China/Malaisia - The best chance to involve Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Mazda. Honda is presently involved thru Acura & HPD in Torrance, California, similar to what Mazda are doing with Dyson. Toyota & Nissan have facilities in all three quadrants to design, build, and race a LMP, all that was needed is the impetus to go in that direction.

And so, one man's dream (namely the person in my avatar standing to the left of me) is finally starting to take shape.

ubrben has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Sebring
Spa
Silverstone
Petit Le Mans
Sepang
Suzuka

Would be my ideal. Monza would be first reserve :-)

Le Mans, is included in meeting that requirement.

Umm, I don't think so. It says that Le Mans is "excepted", NOT that Le Mans is "accepted", in order to fill the requirement. There is a critical difference between the two.
