I'm happy. What's important to me is that this great chassis will keep on evolving. They even have budget to take the car to the windtunnel for a second year in a row; and we saw how good the results were after one year. That means they are working towards the 2011 LMP rules and are hoping to be a factor this year. The Pescarolo technical team, especially Claude Gallopin who was the #1 Pescarolo technical man, will most probably be involved. In fact, re-reading an Endurance-Info interview just after Okayama, they already said they wanted to use the 3rd chassis for development between the races.

They don't seem to have LMP1 plans, but that development would help Henri run his LMP1(s) even more competitively. SORA probably never wanted to race the cars and might or might not retain them. The only part of the puzzle left is how Henri's planning on going racing next year (with what money and what equipment), and whether he could keep his all-star driving line-up.

Oh and on the SpeedTV link, there's a comment saying De Ferran is getting a Pesca chassis... until proven otherwise, it's just a pipe dream... but it would be GREAT!

Very sad news if that is the case, all the best to the team.

Let's wait and see, im not sure Henri Pescarolo is done with Le Mans!, he knows he can make fast enough cars to win, so why should he quit all together, "just" because he lacks money?.
a 2011 rebirth is possible in my mind.

Pescarolo Sport would of closed its doors had support not arrived from PS2/GT4... So its dogged bullets before. Although, the situation now is a different from budget issues in '05, money is and always was the factor. Pescarolo need to align themselves wih a major coporate heavy weight in the Automotive industry. That would be the plan but it aint that simple.

Before we break out the champagne about this are we sure this is a Pescarolo LMP rather than the Le Mans 'school' car that's been talked about before.

Goes without saying that I'm hoping for the former (which would be a very well kept secret indeed) but would the ACO really allow this level of Pescarolo Sport linkage with the release of the entry list if it was effectively a team's car launch?

Thanks Graham - makes more sense even if I suspect it's not the news many might have been hoping for...

That school pescarolo is just a school car for LMP drivers or they are making it as competence for the Oreca´s FLM in the challenge?

I thought it was another Formula Le Mans chassis to use.

No, it is specifically build for the ACO Driving School.
