Thanks for the information!

This series is seriously starting to follow WEC's logic of re-bopping LMGTE for every single race. For Ricard:

Porsche 991 RSR +5kg & 2,7mm restrictor from base
Porsche 997 GT3 RSR 2013 -20kg
Porsche 997 GT3 RSR 2012 -20kg & gurney -10mm
Aston Martin Vantage 2013 -15kg & -0,6mm restrictor
Aston Martin Vantage 2012 -10kg & -0,3mm restrictor

Well even though the Aston is 85 kg underweight there's still way to go to Lotus Evora's 125kg weight break in ALMS 2012

dragging this thread up, i was reading an interview with signatech alpine's phillipe sinault the other day that had some interesting stuff in (if you can get beyond the painful formatting):

http://www.autonewsinfo.com/2014/09/...rd-133916.html

first thing is his mention of budgets for next season: "just over" €2m for elms including le mans and €3.5m for wec? yikes. to align that with single seaters a formula renault 3.5 season for one driver is about the €1m mark, 17 races of 45 minutes each. assuming a fair old chunk of the elms budget is le mans, that's pretty good value for money if you're a driver with some cash. unless you're gold or platinum

second thing is the suggestion of a new car. are they sniffing around a swap to the ligier? or is the new car from oreca due next season and i've just forgotten?

thanks. it rang a bell but i'm ill and cannot brain

that timescale doesn't quite fit in with sinault's plans, so it'll be interesting to see if they just decide to go with it or not.

Apart from Imola clashing with the N24 (which MUST be sorted by that time hopefully), I don't see faults with this. Good locations, 20 hours of racing and there doesn't seem to be anything to increase costs for teams - ELMS 2015 should have similar/larger grid numbers.

Well (even if for different circumstances) we remember the last time ELMS race was scheduled to conflict with N24...

Yes, N24 bore the brunt of it by being massively screwed by rain and fog.

Uh... last year? 2013 Imola ELMS race was on the Saturday on the May 18-19 weekend (I think), N24 was Sunday-Monday (May 19-20) with final quali on the same day as Imola.

Dunno if that quote is a direct reference to N24 given the context, but if it is... hmm yes
