The leadership of the WEC can make a longer final race of the season in 2018.
“We debate and rehearse some innovations – quoted AUTOSPORT.com WEC boss Gerard Neveu. – We are considering the possibility of a longer final race of the campaign or the holding of a shorter race on one of the other stages.
We have many different features and options, but we do not claim that the changes will come in the next year”
Recall that, starting in 2012, all the races of the championship WEC in addition to “24 hours of Le Mans” last for six hours.
We also discuss the possibility of amending the points system for the final race of the season, if it becomes more prolonged.
In addition, the WEC plans to extend the contracts with the tracks that host races in the world Cup.
“Should we continue to lead the championship with nine stages? A better way to reduce it to eight or expand to ten races? There are many options – continued the Neva. – But do not expect revolutionary changes in the next year.
We want to think carefully about the best rules and best calendar without violating the traditions of our championship”.
