Asian Le Mans Series

This year, due to the ongoing world-wide health crisis, the organisers (ACO) have compacted the season of 4 races into the weekend of 13 & 14 February and the following Friday & Saturday/19 & 20 February, all held in the United Arab Emirates. The first 2 races are at the Dubai Autodrome and the second 2 at the Yas Marina Circuit.

Round 1
4 hours of Dubai
Saturday 13 February
Full replay here

Round 2
4 hours of Dubai
Sunday 14 February

Unfortunately, the TV direction was typical of the genre. It is no wonder plenty of people consider motorsport boring.
There were numerous examples of an uninformed and unimaginative mind - or minds - at work.
The most infamous example being the mantra........must........show........the.........winning.........car (on the last lap).
In race 2 this robbed us of a 3-car battle to the line in GT (that had been building to a crescendo for several laps) and a sudden loss of a podium place in LMP3 for one car, neither were shown. You could hear the frustration in the commentators voices.
Instead, we saw the winning car with a very healthy lead and then a locked-off camera at start/finish  Roll Eyes
As to whether things are improved for next weekend remains to be seen. I hope my suspicions - no improvement- are proved wrong.

Unfortunately, my suspicions were met (see comments above).
Having said that, I/we should be grateful that these events actually took place and that they were broadcast to the world. And for that I am indeed grateful.

Next up is the IMSA Sebring 12 hours on Saturday 20 March.

If there is another "Super-Sebring" as occurred back in 2019 (both WEC and IMSA endurance races in one weekend), I can highly recommend getting yourself to that event. You will be thoroughly entertained by our American cousins going all-out partying. On top of that, there is virtually no catch-fencing to obscure your view of the cars, as we seem intent on installing all over the UK and Europe, when its only really required at certain locations. Only very rarely does it appear at Sebring when theres a particularly "tricky" corner, I think I spotted just one example. As it states on the reverse of any entry ticket, motorsport is dangerous, etc etc.

After a 3 week break, we've just this IMSA race before the 24hrs of Le Mans over the 21-22 August weekend, which clashes slightly with my attending our Track Day. No matter, only a few hours at the start will be missed!
