Fans should be able to have their say – that’s why the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and Motorsport Network has launched a global survey with a view to the forthcoming season. What should the WEC look like in future?
The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) has launched a global fan survey. The survey will give fans the opportunity to have their say on the future of the racing series.
To ensure that as many fans as possible can participate, the questionnaire is available in ten different languages. It includes 44 questions and takes around ten minutes to complete.
The survey covers all aspects of sports car racing, including the duration of events, the spectacle and the most popular drivers and manufacturers. The questionnaire also asks which medium is the fans’ preferred option for consuming their sport.
Results will be published at the last race of the season
“We want the fans to speak out”, says Gerard Neveu, CEO of WEC. “This has always been our philosophy. They should decide the future of the WEC”.
"It includes all of the different topics that are important to us – calendar, regulations, entertainment. I'm hoping that more than 50,000 people will take part. As the survey is available in ten different languages, we also hope to hear opinions from all over the world. We're providing the fans with a platform to tell us what they want to see”.
Before making any decisions about the 2019/20 season, the organisation wanted to gauge the fans’ opinion, explains Neveu. The results will be published at the last race of the season in Bahrain (November 18).
Due to the coronavirus crisis, the French classic was moved from its traditional mid-June date to 19/20 September.
