ep16 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Remember, that Judd engine also had a habbit of self detonation in the back of the Oak Pesarolos aswell. Including at Sebring a few years ago shoryly after the car had lead briefly overall and was still leading the privateers. Think it went pop at Le Mans two years on the trot if i remember rightly aswell in the same car...

Agreed, but the HPD unit is allegedly hugely expensive and only one team has used it without an HPD chassis.

Lot's of positive signs about next year, lets hope there are more engine options.

I'm pretty certain it wasn't, happy to be proved wrong though.

Exclusive to Lola chassis that is. But it seems thats no longer the case as Lola wont exist in the class next year.

The only thing I hope, is to see all engines balanced in the better way as possible. Diesel cannot be anymore helped by rules. Petrol engines must be as performant as diesel ones. This may attract more manufacturers interested in petrol engines. By now, with Peugeot forfait, only Audi has remained with diesel, and this can't be considered as the leading solution. Now it's time for hybrid (diesel or petrol), but all engines must be on the same plain.
I fear there will not be enough space for small engine suppliers, such as AER and Judd, because of the rising interest of manufacturers in petrol engines. That's not good. Small manufacturers have always been Le Mans salt!

Regardless of how the balance is going to be in practice, they are already better in a way because in the most simplistic form there is just one parameter to BoP. That should make the inevitable BoP much easier compared to the current messed up displacement-restrictor based rules with hundred other parameters (+ boost pressures, weights, fuel tank flows) which I think will be always inherently wrong. I also hope that if ACO believes the figures are correct, then they will be really left untouched too and not tweaked immediately once one manufacturer starts crying.

So, everything depends on if ACO's hypothesis figures are correct...

http://i.imgur.com/ckXfrOg.png

Interestingly as Bart Hayden revealed here, the 2% BoP rule has been omitted from the new regs:

"...the new regulations, and it isn’t a case of what it says, but rather what it doesn’t say. The current regulations have determined that a 2% performance gap is acceptable between the factory cars and that for private teams like ours. That regulation has been omitted for the new regulations, and by definition it is now regarded as unacceptable to have such a gap in performance."

I really wonder if that interpretation is correct (the leaked draft of the technical regs won't help here as the BoP rule was/is in the sporting regs), because that sounds really impossible to achieve. And imho generally lap times are just really retarded measure of balancing if the point is to balance engines only.

2014 force manufacturers to use one of the ERS options (see above pic). But you can't say just "hybrid" because it is not a combustion engine...

AER's new 2014 LMP1 engine is currently in the build and test phase. for confidentiality reasons its not appropriate for me to reveal what it is, but i am prepared to say its not an I4!......but they are doing one for sure.......admittedley i dont know who its for, but i'm told they have a customer, but i always take that part with a pinch of salt.......it cant be for dyson as LMP1 is now done in the US.......answers on a postcard please.

Knew you would have some information regarding a potential AER powerplant, can you say if it is AER only or another AER/Mazda project?

Adess has said, prior to Le Mans, they already established a partnership to build the LMP1 version of the T128 Kodewa run with an engine specific engine suplier...

I was just about to say the same thing. I think we just put two and two together. Sounds like one of those great looking lotuses possible powered by AER? Who owns AER? it could be a V6? AER is going to supply V6 engines for FIA GP3.

They just need to make sure they get paid before handing anything over.

Adess is looking forward for some partner/racing team to put the LMP1 version on track and that will not be Kodewa/Lotus, for sure.
