Ginetta's already done a ton of work on their LMP3 - the developments made to create the G57 and G58 will without a doubt be applied.

Well, maybe they could do that, but will they? They have emphasised selling G57s and G58s for a profit rather than pursuing the cost-capped LMP3 route.

Ginetta wasn't that happy with ACO as Adess felt they had nothing more to develop on their rubbish car. Can't wait to see the movie coming.

Why wouldn't they? They're on thenew homologation list and the G57 and G58 were both built off of the LMP3 chassis, so applying the updates would be extremely simple. Despite the cost cap, they can probably make money off of an updated LMP3 quite easily thanks to this.

The only real question about the idea is how the engine cover fits with the Nissan engine compared to the Chevy engine used in the G57/58.

Ginetta maybe are not interested as they have the super successfully LMP1 car to sell now

Adess? Who knows that answer? French arrogance that the Adess is perfect.....or inability or funding or interest to do any development?

some news on the IMSA prototype challenge series:

Conquest is getting back into racing with a Ligier:
https://sportscar365.com/imsa/ipc/co...est-provoledo/

And Robillard/Muelhner have a Norma (or two) for the year:
https://sportscar365.com/imsa/ipc/ro...-breaks-cover/

This series kicks off at the Roar next week, and I am unsure of what type of grids to expect for the season. Good to see some announcements though.

Thanks, 19 cars isn't bad, but 30 would look better! Especially since they give a lot of trophies here

So the Atlantic Racing ADESS didn't materialize after all, no big surprise :/ well it was a DISASTER at Sebring 4 Hours after all (despite okay pace)

The weird thing about the schedule is that the Proto Challenge race at CTMP is longer than the 'feature event'... the 3 hours should've gone to otherwise prototype-less VIR where they run to the sunset anyway. The Roar also gets weak TV production (less cameras) due to no other series having TV coverage that weekend, at least that was the case last year

Anyway Sebring will be interesting for LMP1, LMP2 and DPi pace comparisons with LMP3

19 cars entry list is not bad but not impressive too.

Tell me one race where a ADESS impressed us with its strong pace!? Can't find one. There are cars that were simply not build for racing.

ADESS representatives were at Sebring with Atlantic. There could have been upsides in having something else than the stock French option at some of the tracks.

It's not a 'good' chassis but at least ADESS is somewhat still trying to make the grids ocassionally, unlike Dome which never materialized, Riley which was complete disaster and Ginetta who got so bored of their product that they seemed to erase it from their own press releases. Anyway, it's not like they could modify the chassis to fix the issues in this frozen spec category. These smaller boutique makes have nowhere else to go now that LMP2 has been corrupted to full spec series and LMP1 is making way towards LMGTP's ill fated vision.

Last year there were 25 cars in total on the entry list: 13 LMP3 + 12 MPC (former IMSA Lites). The number of P3 has grown to 19 this year but no MPC. And because the Daytona Roar race is one of two enduros (4 hours), a few teams have scaled back to only one car instead of two for the regular races. I think we can expect 20+ for Sebring and onwards. That's very decent, especially since the P3 is more expensive to run than the former Lites cars.
