With the FIA World Endurance Championship’s second annual 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas now just 44 days away (Sept. 20) as part of Lone Star Le Mans weekend at COTA it seemed like a good time to dust off the tops of the post-Le Mans season points standings in the various classes and provide a few notes regarding the season so far. A 6-hr race win scores 25 points, with 18 for second, and 15 for third, etc. Points doubled for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The COTA race is the first of f...
