LMP2 Manufacturers and Engine Suppliers

Hello all, I was thinking of making a thread to keep track of the LMP2 manufacturers and engine suppliers so we know what options teams will have to race around the world.

Off the top of my head:

Chassis Manufacturers:
Zytek
Lola (not sure about new cars)
Oreca
Morgan (OAK-Pescarolo)
Pilbeam
HPD
DOME
Riley
Bailey
Lotus
SMP

Engine Suppliers:
Judd
Nissan
Honda
Roush-Yates
Mazda (canceled?)
Toyota (possibly)
Ferrari (possibly, SMP trying)
BMW (possibly)

Judd is based on the BMW unit. BMW are unlikely to do their own version.

I remember reading on the rumors thread about a BMW LMP2 engine possibility. Marc VDS was thinking of running it this year, but decided not to. Word came up again just before Le Mans.

TMG rumored to construct their own lmp2. That should be a big addition.

RCE says evaluating "LMP2" and does not refer to chassis.

http://www.racecar-engineering.com/n...-lmp2-project/

If means also chassis, wouldn't it make sense to just strip down "TS040" until it meets P2 regs.

Speaking of Mazda, what happened to their Skyactiv-D engine?

Basically, the engine doesn't work yet.

They have been running two cars in the Rolex GTX class and losing regularly despite having some excellent drivers because the engine has what you mioht call "severe reliability issues."

Basically they are teething issues---pistons burned at the Rolex 24, fuel pump at Barber, different things all the time ... the cars have run well a couple times and I think each has a win (way too lazy/busy right now, will confirm later) but mostly a long string of DNFs and laps lost to engine issues.

I see, no wonder they can't put their engine onto a LMP2 car yet...

Don't forget Norma.

Wolf announced last year that they will produce an LMP2. But I'm not sure if that will still happen since there Daytona Prototype announcement.

Oreca is planning to build a new LMP2 coupe by 2015. They're basically splitting their teams between the Rebellion R-One and the new Oreca LMP2.
