Looks as if it will get MAJOR changes to the chassis as 3 of the 4 constructors will be getting 'Jokers' with the Mk. 30 getting the largest.

Well, that's massive. So much for the spirit of this P2 generation, not that I liked that spirit in the first place.

To be fair, I examined a system of variable updates based on performance a few years back too. So, I guess here's my on-track test of that concept.

If IMSA and the ACO achieve a common set of global prototype regulations for 2020, the next generation of IMSAís DPi could be hybrid.

My first thought was, "That's nuts! U.S. manufacturers don't want to spend big bucks and they don't want to push hybrids .... they make more money on pick-ups and SUVs."

Then I saw that it was Atherton, and it all made nonsense.

If you look at every major automobile manufacturer, they’re either talking about an all-hybrid lineup of vehicles or an all-electric lineup of vehicles.

Right now we do not have a formula that calls for hybrid technology in DPi. If you’re talking about the next generation, and seeing what’s happening around us, it seems like the logical next step
It's a thin balance between attracting manufacturers interested in hybrids, and preventing costs from escalating.

The highlighted sentence in what Atherton said is the key factor in it all. That is the reason there is no P-1 on the IMSA grid at the moment. IMSA, did not, nor do they want a class that is untenable to their paddock. They are not adverse to the technology, mostly to the cost as seen in the ACO's presentation of it.

Interesting that Hybrid is now being tossed around when the world's manufacturers seem to be headed to all-electric...

This is sports car racing. Many sports car manufacturers are going hybrid, see the Porsche 918, McLaren P1, LaFerrari, Aston Martin Valkyrie, Mercedes-AMG Project One...

Don't worry, self-driving vehicles will be well established and racing dead before that happens.
