There must be so much going on behind the scenes at the moment.

In the weirdest way, a small part of me wouldn't mind if Toyota did leave. Literally rip the whole thing down and start again, rather than trying and failing to balance the technologies. That would certainly make for a more intriguing battle and hopefully encourage a couple more entries out of the woodwork.

I guess if Peugeot are coming then it would be nice to see Toyota there to greet them. But it just feels like a bit much to ask for a company, especially one so snakebit at Le Mans.
You're so right there.

I guess it'll come to a gaggle of LMP1-L's against the Toyota's, who'll ofcourse cairy far more oomph no matter what BOP the ACO is planning to come up with. I'd love to see the new Acura LMP2 in LMP1-L tune. Or the Mazda, for that matter.

In my 22 years whitnessing this race, I've never seen a more uncertain and in mystery shrouded Le Mans 24 hours.

Interesting times.

It takes me back to the early 90s when Ecclestone and Balestre tried to exert control with engine reg changes and forced chicanes on the Mulsanne. I've no real idea what is going on and until the ACO decide what they're going to do with/to Toyota and Toyota decide whether to tell them to stuff it, I agree - we haven't really got any idea about what we'll be watching next June.

I dare say that as long as the event continues, most of us here would still go and watch whatever was out there on track.

(Heresy incoming: personally, I'd keep watching even if it went full electric/driverless...)

I'll certainly be there Victor! Electric, maybe, as long as the spectacle on track was still up to it. Driverless? No, I'd draw the line at that......

Ha, Andrew is changing his point of view about electric powered cars at Le Mans.
By the way, the Chinese government is close to decide to stop the production and sells of petrol cars. No date is announced yet but this will cause a worldwide revolution A full electric starting grid is now possible.

The Le Mans Classic will remain, fortunately.

What Governments say and do are very rarely the same thing, China is probably one of the lest able to provide electric power as vast swaths of the country have no connection to a national grid for electric power. Also one only has to look at the proposals from all of those countries and none ban petrol just force them to include hybrid technology. Change is coming yes but i doubt it will ever be what politicians grasping for the pc vote will ever predict.

I am going to speculate that we will see at least two Ginettas on the grid in 2018.
