And just for good measure:



Of course, all of this is from the movie Crazy People with Dudley Moore. You know, the one where the ad man decides to run honest ads. Watch the movie and you'll figure out why the Toyota LMP's engines are being made in Japan!

There was a little bit of news regarding the LMP1 posted on a German site earlier, and the link was posted on another thread but I thought it deserved to be mentioned here too.

The article says they plan to begin track testing in early 2013. They have been doing well working on the engine, but since the 2014 rules are unfinished they have just been doing general aero work on the chassis.

I think Hindy mentioned on MWM that the Porsche LMP1 programme has been postponed by a year. ?

OK thanks, I'll have a listen when I get home.
Did he provide any reasoning?

I'm not sure what RLM was referring to, but there was some talk a month back or so that the new ACO regs could get pushed back from the scheduled 2014 date due to some disagreements. That rumor had been shot down by some sources, but perhaps there is something to it. Maybe RLM is using outdated rumors though. I don't know. That's one possible guess.

He just mentioned it quickly while talking about something else, I thought they were going to return to this story to talk about it later, but they didn't.

I have just heard Hindy saying that the Porsche program has been pushed back a year. I am dumbfounded,as I have not heard anything about this. I will try and find out more on this.

That'd be big news if so, Im surprised no one else has mentioned something as serious as a years delay already. ??

The one year delay of the 2014 rules has been documented extensively on http://www.mulsannescorner.com/newsjan12.html

Recent rumors out of Europe have suggested that the ACO2014 regulations were to be delayed to 2015 because of disagreements amongst the various parties. We've contacted our usual sources and the resounding chorus is that no, to the contrary, the FIA and ACO continue to work diligently to produce the new regulations. And the expectation is still that the new rules will be out sooner rather than later. As the months go on one does begin to wonder what "sooner" means (recall that just a few months ago the anticipation was to see the rules before the end of 2011)? The ACO and FIA are due to meet again on February 14.

Isn't Le Mans and the World Endurance Championship the ACO's show? Why does the FIA get a say in the regulations? I thought the FIA's duty was to "advertise" the WEC, while the ACO basically run the show.

I wouldn't be surprised if the new regulations do get postponed, considering the relationship between the ACO and FIA. And if the regulations get postponed, well then Porsche's return gets postponed too.
