good info, 2014 will be rough. I can't wait to see the resulting classes.
It's unfortunate that LMP1 is going away, I'm not sure if HPD, Audi, Mazda, Puegeout, etc..will migrate to the resulting prototype class. It's interesting since they insist on the link with European Le Mans series, and they are not getting rid of the LMP1 class in the European or Japanese series. So not sure what prototype classes will look like. It's very important to me to see the large manufacture support in the LMP1 class.
Additionally, by creating to sepereate GT classes, at this moment there will be no entry from the Rolex Series' GT cars in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, I recongize the Rolex GT cars (at least the 911 cup-type cars) are similar to the current ALMS GTC cars.
