As much as I make fun of Mazda, that's mostly poking at joeb. This is really discouraging news. They HAVE to find a new engine package as soon as possible. I just hope there is some money in the coffers for it. It's a beautiful car and needs to be up front.
Seriously they should just paint flames on the car and acknowledge their heritage.

Maybe Mazda can use this opportunity to switch to LMP1.

But seriously! Just run the Gibson engine!! The current motor is AER badge job anyway!

Joest could just run the Gibson engine this season while Mazda develops something for next year.
BAR runs the updated 'standard' Riley* with the Gibson engine this season in IMSA (and like VF/SoD did last season) so surely one fits in the chassis - question is: did Multimatic do specific chassis updates to the Mazda DPi to host the AER engine that would make the switch (back) to the Gibson extensive + expensive?

* Just like the Caddy I feel the Mazda DPi is the baseline of the car of which the 'global' LMP2 car is derived - and not the other way round like the Oreca (Acura) and Ligier (Nissan).

Agreed that Joest-Mazda need to make an engine change today - their season seems to be in jeopardy already by sticking with the 'charcoal special'! Would hate to see the prettiest prototype in recent history disappear in not too long...

I think they have to wait for next year to switch to another chassis, or engine, or aero package to be re homologated.

I'll be the one to give the weekly call to go back to a rotary mazda. If you're gonna fail, at least do it sounding great.

That may be in the rules, I don't know, but I can't imagine IMSA not working with them if they came up with another engine package.

Guess none has ever considered to change engine during the season, that actually don't know if does even exist a rule that allows or prevents a mid-season engine swap for the same chassis.... (even if I remember that in late grand-am years, MRS or another team switched from ford to bmw engines, or reverse, can't recall accuretaley).

The only realistic extrema ratio is this:
just throw away mazda dpi and AER-mazda for this season and lease a pair of oreca or ligier, rebadging the gibson engine as mazda so they could keep on running under team joest mazda motorsport banner.... I know it's quite wierd and unlogical, but in WEC from years there is an alpine lmp2 that is a rebadged oreca, and I recall perfectly that in late '90 bmw motorsport was directly involved in FIA GT and le mans with.... a pair of mclaren f1

What's strange about BMW Motorsport being involved in a BMW powered car that they provide the engines for? Nearly every McLaren that raced in period had BMW branding on it somewhere, from 1996-1998 always the "powered by BMW logo" on every car, and in 1995 a mix of it on the DPR cars, "BMW V12" on the back of the Ueno Clinic car, and a local BMW dealership on the Gulf cars.


Every McLaren built had BMW logos on the cylinder heads from the start.
