Ah the Dagys spin machine. ACO says they'd like to get IMSA to use the same rules in 2020. Headline implies ACO will switch to DPi.

Best thing would be a common platform, but there's the whole deal on different philosophies, different markets, and different technical rules views as far as technology vs cost savings.

I believe there should be a middle ground, but I'm not sure if IMSA or the ACO are willing to give and compromise enough to make it happen.

I don't see anything wrong with the headline and I think the article follows the headline well. It said they are "open" to a shared platform with the next rules package. Which is what the article said as well.

It's great news that DPi will be allowed in LMP1, but will it open for more chassis manufacturers? After all, DPi is using 4 approved manufacturers based on LMP2.

If F1 are serious about reducing costs and maybe helping out as far as engine supply from a cost perspective, I don't see how a similar deal can't help LMP1.

If costs were brought down and there were quality chassis makers out there/teams who'd be willing buy customer engines from any engine supplier, that could make the "DPI" element more palatable, as well as still allowing for development of engines and cars.

Where we're at right now, if you want to be an engine supplier, you might as well design and build your own car, because the ACO's current regs (and lack at this moment at least of a viable partner with a car that's ready to go until the end of the season) basically encourage such a deal, as well as the factory having control over almost every aspect of the car.

Hopefully a deal similar to the original DPI of the Lola-Aston Martin might become a reality.

Originally posted in the Toyota thread, but I think it has relevance here in a different context.

I did read something interesting on another forum regarding finances, and I think that it's interesting that a point was brought up.

Most Japanese companies run to a different fiscal year than most North American or European companies do. Fiscal year for most Japanese companies runs from April to March. Most everyone else does like Sept. to August or Oct. to Sept.

The 2018/19 WEC schedule does, be it by coincidence or maybe by design, align with the Japanese fiscal year.

But the end of the season also aligns with being close to the 2019 fiscal year that most everyone else uses. Could that be a part of trying to get more teams in by then?

Since the super season will end in June 2019, I think the previous Japanese fiscal year has ended by almost 3 months.

Now back on topic, I'm scared on what's gonna happen next for WEC.

***FIA Technical Director Bernard Niclot is no longer with the organization, in a shakeup made last week following the Six Hours of Mexico. Niclot, the architect of the LMP1 Equivalence of Technology regulations, was reportedly under scrutiny in the wake of Balance of Performance discrepancies in GTE-Pro last year, and more recently, the originally announced 2020 LMP1 regulations, which has since been abandoned.

***Former Ferrari F1 engineer Gilles Simon, who worked with now-FIA President Jean Todt at the Italian manufacturer, has been tipped as Niclot’s replacement. A FIA spokesperson told Sportscar365 that no further information has been communicated beyond Niclot’s confirmed departure.

Gilles Simon also worked for P.U.R.E and consulted for Honda F1 power units. Hmm
