Hawkwood should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
United Autosports and JMW Motorsport have clocked two auto entries from 2016's ELMS season.

According to dailysportscar Rebellion switches to LMP2 in 2017, very sad news for LMP1.

It's a near spec category with clone cars and engines + artificial driver and other restrictions... they're not gonna dominate anything. I'm pretty sure most of the existing budget is gonna be axed anyway now that they can't really utilize anything. Oh and more pay drivers!

I'm sure they'll be along the top LMP2s, but hardly the way you saw in ILMC and WEC at the start of the decade when LMP1 privateers still had healthy divisions. Can't get excited about the prospect at all.

Those two have infinitely more money, resources and better drivers than rest of the ICS field. They are pretty much like the Oreca and Onroak of that series. Rebellion might have spend good penny in LMP1 too (at least in earlier years) but if anyone expects them to carry over similar budgets to LMP2, I'm afraid it's very naive. First off, there's no need to go high end as it's development frozen, but second as it's forcefully cost capped and destined to be lower division by rule. Unlike Indycar

Admittedly, I don't follow as closely as I used to. What development is there in Indycar?
I posted on another board that was discussing how Indycar fan base might be greater if there was more testing during the off season like there was in the CART (and prior) days. I mentioned the fact there was nothing to test as there was no development to be made. No one raised an eyebrow.

And in addition: http://www.dailysportscar.com/2016/1...-entrants.html

So far we have 9 in total:

LMP1
1x Porsche (LM P1 winner)

LMP2
1x Signatech-Alpine (LM P2 winner)
1x Jota-G Drive (ELMS P2 winner)
1x United autosport (ELMS P3 winner)

GTE-Pro
1x Ford Chip Ganassi (LM GTE-Pro winner)

GTE-Am
1x Scuderia Corse (LM GTE-Am winner)
1x TF Sport (GT3 Cup winner)

GTE-Pro or GTE-Am
1x Aston Martin Beechdean (ELMS GTE winner)
1x JMW (ELMS GTE 2nd place)

TBA
3x AsLMS: 1x P2, 1x P3 (both in LMP2) and 1x GT (in GTE-Am)
2x IMSA (at large): 1x P2 and 1x GTE-Am

That makes 14

+ Garage 56 (WR) if confirmed makes 15

+ 32ish for the WEC runners

leaving 13ish entries (60-/-15-/-32) to be divided by the committee.

When you put it like that it makes those 13ish spots very valuable. How many entries do you think they will get vying for those spots? 20? 30?

Probably. Keep in mind there'll be a bit of overlap as well so maybe there will be around 18 spots to be determined by the committee I think.

After today's news, 5 car LMP1 field ?

But could this make a Toyota third car more likely as they have a good chance to win?

Yeah Audi dropping out is very disappointing after I sent my ticket request off yesterday.
