Agreed. Then again, it seems that it needs more variety that's beyond reciprocating engines.

Did any more details about the AER in the back of the Lotus leak out over the COTA weekend? Engine capacity, is it related to any other AER motors, etc?
It seems it ran relaibly with decent power.

Had the chance to hear the Porsche engine for the first time. Not very loud or badass sounding IMO. Only a hair noisier than Audi. Only Toyota and Rebellion prototypes sound like a proper race car. In fact, they overdo it at Rebellion. The Rebellion R car was probably the loudest prototype at COTA. So loud, it can get irritating a bit without ear plugs.

The team has been so tight lipped with information I'm not waiting to hear anything from them. Although we might get a press release from AER on the topic.

In an unrelated item, the S35 pre-race notebook mentioned that Judd is still working on their LMP1 engine.

The privateers must have a chance at competing for overall victories, or at least make it darned closed that an upset is possible once in a while. I'm not sure what the exact solution is, but I do know that we need reasonably priced chassis, with manufacturer brands in the top categories to maximize their popularity. No disrespect to Oak, Zytek, Lola, Riley etc... but those chassis aren't what draws fans to track. Audi, Toyota, Porsche, Peugeot, Acura... those are what people want to see. We need multiple series with the same basic specs for the top class, so that there is a business model that works for engine manufacturers and chassis builders alike. Without a larger market, there is really no future in the current top class, except for relying strictly on manufacturer participation.
I applaud your sentiments, but really cannot not see this ever happening.

There are simply too many self interests, on both sides of the water to allow it to happen as you lay it out.

The only times this was viable..........back in the old Group C days. Sadly they are not coming back any time soon.....

Yes as apparently that Fukushima airport is close to the YGK facilities.

No problem, since Fukushima (the town) is 60km away from the nuclear power station.

In Le Mans if you fall asleep, Rebellion and Corvette wakes you up.

I've nodded off at Arnage on Sunday morning - at the closest possible point to the cars on the circuit. If you're tired enough you can sleep through anything.

Completely dispute that the Rebellion (or anything on the current grid) is too loud though.

I've slept through the Panoz GTR-1's running nose-to-tail thundering down the Mulsanne straight for hours in the early morning of 1998*, I wouldn't even notice the Rebellions!

* (causing some weird dreams though!)

Maybe, or perhaps one's hearing is not what it used to be... just joking

If you're looking to sports cars for a noise fix then you are looking in the wrong place. There have always been much louder forms of racing.
