Do we even know the regs yet ? Sounds exciting though ..... leave it up to someone else to translate it properly from French though .

This is what Glickenhaus posted on his Facebook page:

"On October 27Th P 4/5 Competizione will return to The Ring. We've done a futher EVO and hope to be a bit faster. We also hope to lower our Ring Time Record for a Ferrari Powered car below 6:51 and as this race will be part of The FIA World Championship Alternate Energy Cup, which we're currently leading in class 7, we also hope to win an FIA World Championship at this Race. We're considering various possibilities for 2013 and 2014. The LMP1 rules for 2014 are very suited to an Alternate Energy Car and we're exploring the possibility of building and racing P 4/5 LMP in 2014. For that to happen we would of course have to raise considerable sponsorship and while that is by no means assured we are taking the first step with these renderings."

Really nice dream. This project is certainly in the spirit of Le Mans so let's hope they can pull something together. Shame G56 is taken in '13 as they could have argued for inclusion in that.

I hadn't heard that about the Ferrari hybrid system. They'd have the complete drivetrain of a potential P1 contender knocking around the factory in Maranello.

Porsche vs Ferrari would be INSANE! But at the very least they could hook up Glickenhaus with some kit.

Now that's what I called a prototype!

Still, I hope there's enough money to build one... or drag Ferrari into endurance racing again.

Engine regulations for 2014 are open...in theory ANYTHING goes. But, you have to pull your fuel through a fuel flow meter. Thus, they'll be little advantage of dragging around a large capacity turbo (for example) when power is essentially capped by the fuel flow meter. So, expect small capacity turbos will small cylinder counts. Is that F1? Conveniently yes. And when Jean Todt says, "And maybe I'll manage to convince several engine manufacturers who are now in endurance racing or elsewhere into building engines for F1 too: Audi, Toyota, Porsche, the Koreans..." be wary...

I understand they have not talked to Ferrari about this but are talking to several other manufacturers....... McLaren and Pagani have been mentioned I believe.

It is a shame Ferrari didn't come forward with any kind of gesture towards the team following their 'Ring heroics.

As expected, Ferrari do not want anything to do with this project.

Ferrari has a GTE program, a GT3 program, and a F1 program, I think it's enough if they don't want to leave the F1 because of the V6 engines.
