Idea: MMA-inspired Motorsport Series.

NOTE: Don't take this seriously because this is just an idea.

Anyway, I was thinking of a world championship where the Monaco Grand Prix, Indy 500, and the 24 Hours at Le Mans are brought together.

The world championship is 12 rounds, including the mentioned three races, and instead of bringing an F1 car, an IndyCar, or a Le Mans Prototype separately, you can create a car that can race in any discipline.

There's no need for restrictions on whether you can race it in either open-wheel or closed-wheel, open or closed cockpit. I can call this series a free-for-all race, inspired by mixed martial arts.

So anyway, what do you think?

It would be interesting for sure but i think you would end up with the teams/manufacturers with money building one off cars/engines for specific circuits which would get very expensive.

homologate the chassis at the beginning of the year.

It would be interesting, if the cars were homologated and locked at the beginning of the year only being touched for setup and repairs it'd be sort of a decathalon for racing. I guess you could run them as a sub class but then you'd be taking away entries who are fully invested in that sort of racing (Indy or LeMans.) It would definitely produce an interesting and probably varies set of cars and may be worth it for manufacturers to show off their creativity and engineering ingenuity. It would probably end up costing too much and no private team could possibly run it leacing 1 or 2 manufacturers as the only entrants.

For the chassis, I'm thinking about putting them some aero-kits to cut costs (but not enough to lower it) and to fit specific tracks like Le Mans, Monaco, and the Indy oval track.

As for private teams, only one or two chassis suppliers can provide them with aero kits as an option.

I don't think it would stay mixed for too long.

Open wheels are a huge generator of draft and really only used in F1 and Indy for historical reasons. A car with enclosed wheels will always be more effective.

What we would see is, therefore, single seated LMPs or maybe overpowered delta wings, but an enclosed wheels concept would definitely win out.

Someone's been watching Cars2, it sounds like... Somehow I don't see this ever coming off.
Nice try, no cigar.
