Honda...with hybrids? They barely last 24 minutes.
Honda, maybe. HPD? Infinitely better at it and importantly can admit oops, we need to try again

HPD Would be awesome, but I imagine they'd need support to do the hybrids. That's if hybrids stick around of course. But I imagine the top brass would want it run out of Japan tbh. I'd think HPD would do a better job though.

Well at this rate, at least they can bypass a number of FIA crash testing simulations.

FormulaFox has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
IMSA possibly considering a PFV(Performance Factory Vehicle) class for Weathertech series? Sounds like wishful thinking to me, but the rumor's making the rounds with the contacts I talk to.

But I won't lie... I'd love to see it. I think that's the only class IMSA could add that could actually improve things. (not to mention a PFV class could make a great fallback should Stateside interest in LMP2/DPi falter)

Stupid question - what is a PFV (Performance Factory Vehicle)?

Never heard of that before.

Interesting...Assuming this thing has to have a roll cage, then it seems like GT3 and GT4 already take care of this...

Is a PFV like late 90's GT1?

There's probably a better term to use, but "PFV" is what the people I've heard talking about it are using so I slipped into that terminology - you could call it an "open" class, but since there are likely to be restrictions that would be a bit misleading.

Anyhow, PFV is one of many terms for semi-open classes featuring factory-built cars, sometimes roadcar based but usually not, which don't fit homologation requirements for any other class. Examples include the Ginetta G57, Renault Sport RS01, and the Radical RXC Coupe. (the latter two have managed to get GT3 homolgations, but both are restricted relative to their normal versions - the unhomologated versions would run in a PFV type of class)

The recently announced Pescarolo 04-LM and Ligier JSP4 would also fit into such a category.

Cars not unlike a late 90s GT1 could make their way to it, but I don't think any such cars really exist right now. Closest I can think of is the aforementioned Renault.

Seems like an answer to a question no one has asked??

Esp since the cars you list wouldn't exactly be leaders compared to GTLM. Seems like they are in the LMPC gap more than a headlining class of cars.

Personally I stopped worrying about that long ago; Motorsports is full of such things. Probably half the motorsports classes in the world are answers to questions no one asked.

And why not? If LMP2 can be ahead of GTLM, then certainly these cars could be. Performance shouldn't be much of an issue, as PFVs tend to be a bit faster than LMP3 and GT3(in FIA spec as well as IMSA's restricted spec) despite generally being restricted a fair bit, and without any restrictions the Ginetta G57 actually laps on par with the now-retired generation of LMP2s.

If IMSA has a serious reason to consider it, there's in my opinion no reason not to consider it. But therein lies the issue - IMSA's got a good class lineup already, so do they actually NEED it right now? My gut says no, but I hope they're actually looking at it as considering such things and planning for long-term possibilities is not a bad idea.

Sounds intriguing. To echo your words Fox, do we need it? Which got me thinking, if this rumor gains traction, is this possibly a counter against competition ie: projected growth of WEC P1-L, or perhaps a domestic organization that's vying for team/cars?

Is the McLaren GTE rumor still alive?
