    Do you know if there is onboard streaming for the race from corvette, Porsche, and/or ford like in past years? If so then I think it will make a great way to follow the GTE Race especially if the regular TV coverage focuses on prototypes for extended periods of time

      I haven’t seen any reference to any teams doing streaming this year, which is really sad. Audi TV was the best. Corvette was pretty good, but usually required you to do so via FoxSportsGo or something blocked for most people, which was lame.

      I think this year were pretty well limited to the WEC feed, if you can get it in your area (VPN Express!) or hope for a TV broadcast that doesn’t suck.

    Question:
    The City Challenge of Havana.
    There is a YouTube video and channel about this event, posted several years ago.
    I believe this event was created by Stéphane Ratel, and the successor of
    The City Challenge of Baku (which was the finale for a few years, for the Blancpain GT Sprint Series).
    You wouldn’t know the status of this event by any chance?

    With the fact that BMW and Aston Martin both brought new cars to the series this year, do you think the fact that BMW races in imsa for the first part of the year is a major contributing factor to the M8 being in the mix and the Vantage being really far off? I know AMR did plenty of testing but the teams all say the races are where you find the real information.
