That's true at the current side of things. Gotta say, saving the LMP1-L class is harder than I thought such as attracting IMSA prototype teams to the sub-class after being screwed by ACO over the new LMP2 regulations.

As for awarding private teams, ACO should just give those WEC regulars like Rebellion and some IMSA teams like Extreme Speed Motorsports and Michael Shank Racing. Then again, they'll compete in LMP2 instead as they're okay with it except for GM-backed teams where they'll rather compete at home than in Le Mans.
