They all know what is going to be decided and announced up to a year in advance, take Porsche for example they announced they are getting back into LMP1 in 2014 and have know for a while what the new rules were going to be because they have already started to develop the new car before they announced the new rules this week.

Dose the US really need another road racing series? Grand-Am and ALMS are already fighting for a very small market share in the US. Can a series made of BMW, Mercedes, and Audi really thrive with NASCAR support and following?

Really don't see that being successful.
