2014 LMP1 engines

The new regs allow for just about any engine provided it can get around the lap without running out of gas, so what do we actually know about who is running what next year?

Rebellion: continuing with Toyota 3.4l n/a V8 petrol (I think this is confirmed)
Toyota: petrol + hybrid system
Porsche: probably a small (2l?) turbo 4 cylinder petrol, + hybrid system
Audi: diesel V6? + hybrid system
Strakka: continuing with Honda 3.4l n/a petrol V8?

Any others?

Also, the rule preventing front wheel hybrid use below 120kph is being dropped which might encourage a move to 4 wheel drive for traction and weight distribution reasons. Audi will continue with their 'quattro' system. I wonder if Porsche will go 4wd?

Honda will use a small direct injected turbocharged V6 derived from Indycar engine.

...unless Strakka are allowed (and willing) to grandfather their current car.

Out of curiosity, we used LapSim to analyze the implications of the new 2014 Regulations for Le Mans. Will there still be a race? What kind of power plants are there to expect? Will the ACO achieve what they aim for? You will find the answers in the attached article, published in the february issue of Racecar Engineering.
http://www.lapsim.nl/assets/pdf/Arti...014-LapSim.pdf

2.8L V6T and 4.0L V8 are compared.

I always wonder why the Mazda/AER engine is never mentioned when discussing LMP1 engines, I'd think it's a pretty good option for a privateer? Not knowing how well it works with the new regulations of course.

I like Dyson racing and have for years, but seriously, would you trust them to build an engine for your team?

Dyson owns AER ... and the engines haven't been bad since they strengthened the block for last season, but the team in general ... has sort of slipped.

Adess has said, prior to Le Mans, they already established a partnership to build the LMP1 version of the T128 Kodewa run with an engine specific engine suplier...

I was just about to say the same thing. I think we just put two and two together. Sounds like one of those great looking lotuses possible powered by AER? Who owns AER? it could be a V6? AER is going to supply V6 engines for FIA GP3.

Oh sorry, wasn't aware of that. For example though, if I was Dome at Le Mans last year, I would've picked the Mazda option before the shake-to-bits Judd.

Well, if you believe Judd's side of the story, they weren't the problem.
