We are very happy. This will allow us to race a version of our Glickenhaus 007 LM Road Legal Hyper that will be very close to our road version 900 HP ICE RWD/250 KERS FWD.
This will reduce costs as our Race Version will no longer have to
have a race developed ICE (V6 vs V8) as our 003 C did. Our 2020
004 GT 3 and GT4 will also have a V8 derived from our road legal
examples.
We think fans, sponsors and manufacturers will like thes changes as well.
Best
Jim

I don't think much has changed except now there's bop involved and more cars allowed. What's bad for us fans is that we didn't want more bop or slower, clumsier looking cars that are hard to distinguish from GTE. If they're actual hypercars, they need to look the part. Low and wide, slimmer cockpit than GT and sportscars. Like late 90s GT1 except more modern.

Now it seems what were going to get is a hodgepodge of semi-prototypes and faster GTE looking types of cars. A series like the wec should be above this mix and match top class.

Excuse me, but those who watch racing because of constructors' competition, - what they should do? Since its creation motor racing had always been a playing ground for different experiments, brilliant ideas and clever reading of the Technical regulations. Maybe some had "unfair advantage", but it was the Nature law. It was a real Life. Why nobody wants to save at least a tiny bit of constructors' championship - there're already tons of mono classes to watch (if anybody still believe that there's any form of tech equality there).
I've written it so many times, but, FIA have destroyed sportscar (and formulae) racing by eliminating a natural constructors' ladder throughout different classes. New breed of engineers have nowhere to go to test their ideas. It's no wonder that WEC had to drop constructions' battles and use BoP - they just do not have enough engineers to work in a competitive, real world; so they need some "greenhouse" conditions only to please marketing departments. And I should say advertising people were much clever some 20-30 years ago, as, for example Ford Sierra still associated with racing breed. Even Volvo (from ETCC) does as they compete with BMW and Jaguars in the same open world conditions. Do anybody believe that Hyundai ever get the same advertising with that BoP thing? And who will BoP their road going cars? Hyundai is better than Alfa or Subaru? No way. They do not have something special, that was generated by these companies in real racing, not in "greenhouse" conditions.

As for WEC, it's impossible to force everybody to be the same. When people can not receive advantages through bright mind and hard working, then it looks like a certain regime. It looks like FIA are narrow minded communists.

Well for the constructors it should be equal but fair. I donít agree with BoP to level the playing field. All cars should be different. Thatís what the designers and engineers are for. Back in the day cars were more production based, like the Sierra, nothing more than a glorified road car and there were others like the Volvo and Jaguar too, which added to the competition at the time. I think manufacturers like Hyundai see something in the BoP, even if it is not ideal for them

Sadly the WEC is sadly flawed in this respect. Itís not quite the leading sportscar series

Well however you measure it, it was the last sportscar series & 24 hour race featuring lead class that wasn't based on BoP and/or specness... but now that'll be gone.

With P1 and P2 no longer having technical and engineering competition left, by late 2020 the only category with real tech incentive will be F1... zzz. And I don't know, maybe CN. Well, until Zero Emission is launched in 2024 anyway, but god knows if that too will implement BoP nonsense now that the line has been crossed

It was nice it had something different, but now that has been brought in line with everything else

Thereís little point anymore constructors getting involved in LMP classes if they canít show their skills off. Thankfully F1 will always have technical innovation, which is how it should be. Donít know what other series there will be. But I think too many series are going down the BoP route to keep in line with the future
