Just paid attention to a "vertex" atop of the cabin, which looks similar to P217, and those horizontal planes which (to my mind) guide air up from the nose panels. Pure speculations.

The 'roof lights' are on the p2 Dallara as well. I think your observations are good.

It’s understood at least one existing WEC LMP2 team is evaluating the purchase of a BR1, which could make it the most-represented LMP1 car on the grid next season. “Something we’re good at is making a lot of cars,” Pignacca said. “Realistically if we have to make 2 or 3 cars more, it’s not going to be a problem. -- “BR Engineering would be very happy about this.”


Look at this space Oreca, THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT. Not by monopolizing lower category by forced rules you helped to create, and then when customers want to field LMP1s, you just say "ehhh we'll see, maybe maybe not"

Also interesting in the article how they cite the freedom of LMP1 in contrast to the spec galore P2.

Edit: tried to edit the previous post, but was out of time.

And it looks very similar to Dallara P217. Of course, they had to trim off lots of kg, and it's impossible to check suspension angles. But basic layout is the same if I understand correctly.
As for LMP1 it's one of the last constructors' classes in global autosport. What other engineering firms can do? F1? What a joke. GTE? No way. What else? CN?

I'd love to see some detailed shots without bodywork, looks to be a lovely car.

Well Dallara builds an F1 car...

Dallara makes ORECA's attempts at sanctioning body collusion look like the work of a child.

As for HAAS, yes, but Dallara builds almost every spec racing car/chassis nowadays (Indycar, F2, international F3, Super Formula etc). It's not a problem for them. And I was talking about small companies. Previously they could build some cars for European 2L championship in 70's, ELMS in 00's. And some big names used this opportunity to check everything before a big campaign (a-la Alpine-Renault). Today the gap between open constructors classes is huge. I can not imagine that a company, building CN or Bikesports, have any intentions or possibility to make a LMP1. And this fact decelerates the progress - new constructors with fresh ideas have just no real opportunity to test their abilities in a highly competitive level. I'm superbly pessimistic about FIA's hierarchy ladders in racing and sportscar. It's bad for breed of engineers and drivers who are not able to handle different chassis.

Also in the sc365 article it points out this is a bespoke car not related to the lmp2. New chassis for the BR1.

Also aesthetically less bulky than the P2 pleases my eye
