Why do that when they can rebadge the Renault as a TAG?

Joest Racing is targeting a move to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2018, with the German squad exploring options in running a DPi (Honda?) or GTLM (Lexus or Lamborghini?).

They're obviously looking at IMSA, but if you read the quotes theres nothing beyond that. S365 just filling in gaps with speculation again.

If the new rules continue under Liberty and Ross Brawn (not a given) Red Bull needs their own "factory" engine, since Renault can give Red Bull an inferior spec or limit the available engine modes as Mercedes did to Williams.

Renault has their own works team now and RB burned that bridge.

Are current regulation F1 engines still allowed in LMP1-H? Audi could build a single engine for two championships.

I wonder if in a few years we will be able to see a Joest Mazda in Le Mans with this new Mazda engine technology.
Mazda Reveals Revolutionary Spark-Less Gas Engine, that produce a more efficient combustion, which keeps fuel economy high and emissions low. It should also reduce the chance for the air-fuel mixture to combust prematurely, which is known as knocking. Mazda claims that, in conjunction with a supercharger, the Skyactiv-X engine could deliver "unprecedented" engine response and increase torque by 10 to 30 percent over the current family of gas engines. This technology can also improve engine efficiency by 20 to 30 percent compared to the current Skyactiv-G gas engine.

Impressive. I remain skeptical, because we've just seen how amazingly not clean all the clean diesels are. But hopefully it's true.

Sparkless Ignition for petrol engine. Basically automotive philosopher's stone.

Did you miss the announcement that's been discussed on other threads? They're taking over Mazda's IMSA effort from next year.

Ha! Pretty exciting news, whenever/however we hear about it.

Diesels are soooo 2009, and the current downtrend. However, if Joest is involved, I expect winning and consistent speed, reliability.
