As long as the #86 Acura NSX runs well and stays in title contention, there will be funding for the team. First bad run, then it might end.

BAR1. That may be the end of the Riley Multimatic LMP2 story. Only chassis now in use are the Mazda ones.

So that's another LMP2 team gone from the series.

Is that true? I ask because the minimum weight is 930kg but the Mazda was just at 915kg a race ago and the Oreca chassis (Acura) is very much ballasted to meet the minimum weight. That's why it worked out to use it for Rebellion's lmp1. Maybe the ESM Ligier is a bit heavy because of Nissan's engine but I have a hard time believing they're struggling to meet 930kg. It's more likely ballast is added by bop (especially to the Caddy) to slow them. Isn't their new engine is lighter this year?

Sad for the Riley, but they're outclassed. The car is slow, even after the rework. I think it's all down to the Mazda's bop and the Joest team running them that they're on pace with that chassis.

I'm with you there, I'd want to see something that shows they are all that much heavier. Seems like the tables didn't really show that with their weight BOP.

The ORECA is, the Acura is by all indications not or else there should be no reason to be running overweight and stressing the car harder. Turns out that a beefed up Accord engine with twin turbochargers and a subframe is just a bit heavier than a proper racing V8.

Mazda doesn't have a weight issue because it isn't a stock block, but they also can't turn the power up any higher anyways.
