The CEO of LMEM, the organisation that organises and promotes both the FIA World Endurance Championship and the European Le Mans Series sat down with the DSC Editor to talk about issues of the day as his time in post winds down to the end of 2020 when he will step down.
On the agenda –
The 100th race event organised by LMEM this weekend at Monza;
The future of Sportscar racing;
The story of the weekend with the controversy of a mis-cued regulation change to reposition the driver ranking mix in LMP2; and
The decisions taken behind the revamp 2021 ELMS calendar, in particular why Silverstone is not on the calendar for the coming year.
And avoiding any probing about what comes next for his own career!
With cars on track (the Ligier European Series) and with the background soundtrack of a busy Monza press room, its a good example of what a conversation with Gerard is like in the midst of a busy weekend – Enjoy!
