Making the teams buying a spare tub is a heavy hitter on budget-wise. I am not having a whinge about this honestly.

Not having a spare tub and then crashing heavily in practice for Le Mans next year would be an even bigger hit on your budget, as you would have committed to doing the whole of the 2018-19 "Super-season", and you wouldn't have a car any more.

If carlsberg made engines, they would make this

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2017/11/10/ginetta-take-delivery-of-first-mechachrome-lmp1-engine.html

I love it, decent capacity at 3.4 litres for low revs and low fuel consumption, very compact and low frontal aero envelope. The direct injection conversion was a must for LMP1, single turbo can easily handle 600hp or so......gets my vote

To me this engine won't be a low rev - dyno type. I expect figures like the ford gt motor used in GTE/GTLM. Close to 8000rpm and about 600-650Nm for the whole rpm range. To reach 700hp at 8000rpm the engine need to produce 625Nm.

Actually buying a spares package usually works out at much, much more and manufacturers often don't like people buying a car for spares for just that reason.

What happens when you need a tub halfway through Le Mans week? Give each driver their £500k back and go home?

You pray you can find one.

Or you can plan in advance and have one spare.

the DSC article said:

"expect an OEM-badged engine deal for a manufacturer never before seen at Le Mans."

So I'm thinking someone like Volvo or Hyundai......so a decent manufacturer that wants to transition to a brand profile like Audi, BMW and Mercedes have......20 years ago Audi were nothing special, now look at them.

Volvo would be sweet, also WTCC switches to TCR regs next year, Volvo does not have a TCR car, and TCR does not permit factory teams. Could very well be looking at an engine deal for LMP1 instead, similar to their engine deal a few years ago for V8 Supercars.

A good factory support means having one in spare at the factory.

I wonder why most of LMP1 struggle to complete a full season.
