Vandestick LMP1

Another name for the LMP1 ranks.......all entries welcome!.......give the guy credit, he got further than Perrin ever did........the technology in this thing is on another level, mind-boggling innovation.......I can imagine Dallara, Multimatic, Ligier, Ginetta are pouring over the images with a magnifying glass for new ideas.

Yes, it uses the same construction techniques used in building the AER engine.

Brutal, I dont agree......I think you meant to say:

"Yes, it uses the same construction techniques used in building the Nissan-Flybrid LMP1 KERS system......now that WAS a disaster"

Well, I suppose if you're looking from a diversity point of view then it's certainly unique. But this car was slower than the GT2 class for a good chunk of its lifespan.

After they replaced the troublesome engine with an AER (oh the irony), it didn't get much better. There was even a race where it was the only LMP1 on the grid and it still finished 10th.

So it was diverse, but the quality wasn't there. But remember WEC 2018 is looking like it'll have SMP, DragonSpeed, Manor and maybe ORECA in it. Those are true privateers.

No, this thing does appear to have been built and delivered to its intended customer in time for Le Mans testing.

We can always hope to watch one day Vandestick LMP1 racing in Asian Le Mans Series. It would be as reliable and as fast as an ADESS.
