If only everything could be like the golden ages. Unfortunately time moved on and manufacturers are led by bean counters mostly. So they have to justify expenditures to said bean counters to see if it's a worthy "investment". Couple that with this green movement and that's why you see these former sportscar guys in spec series with a cool title like Formula E. ACO has to respond or else their series is dead with only a few takers. So now we have a low-budget, low-effort ruleset coming up. This was coming for some time now so it shouldn't be as a surprise, even if it is disappointing.

If they wanted low budget they should have brought back rules similar to the old LMP900/GTP rules. When we had that rule set we had a decent mix of cars both private and factory. We are at a point to where it needs to be kept simple: no hybrids, gas engines only and sonic restrictors.

That's my biggest problem with the 2014-present regs. They were the biggest re-write of the regs in nearly 20 years when introduced, when I think that a more moderate phase in to get to where we're at now should've been considered.

And, if you want my honest opinion, that's the direction, one way or another, that we're heading in now. In other words, that cycle is repeating itself.

FormulaFox is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
Looks like IMSA might just have to bring in Hypercar P1 after all. In a big, BIG surprise, CADILLAC has committed to Hypercar LMP1 and released a concept rendering of their planned car:
