At last! A calendar that doesn't leave me shrugging my shoulders when friends down the pub on a summer evening ask what's happening in the World Endurance Championship. They couldn't comprehend why there was such a long break after the Le Mans 24 Hours.
And, quite frankly, neither could I.
That's not going to be a problem next year, because the Nurburgring round has been brought forward from the end of August to late July. The reduction of the ridiculous 11-week gap - down from a monstrous 13 weeks in 2014 - between Le Mans in June and the start of the second leg of the series is a positive move. And one that I have long championed.
