I did some simulation using my modded gtr2.
I took a 2017 low drag dallara, set 840kg + 80kg min. weight, AER P60 specs (650Nm for most of rpm range, 670hp max power and 8000rpm redline) and lmp1 size tires. Toyota-Porsche drivers IAlike.

Set a drag value to let the car reach 352km/h at the end of long straight and obtained these results:

Aragon best laptime: low 1.17 - 352km/h top speed

Silverstone best laptime: mid 1.40 - about 305-310km/h top speed reached at the end of hangar straight

Le mans: high 3.15 - 350km/h top speed.
Nice results.

Ah right. The extended back straight makes a big difference.

yeah, with that layout almost half of the track is flat-out, that's explained so low timelaps.
It's from years that porsche and toyota dropped paul ricard to test their LD cars at aragon.

I think that is the main reason they will be ahead of the other privateers. The fact that the car is already sorted (or should be) makes it easier to go after performance. The others will catch up more than likely but will it be before Le Mans, during or after? I don't have a crystal ball but I think at least BR have the early advantage. I want ByKolles to be there with them but I don't know if the car is as capable vs these brand new ones. We'll see soon!

Apparently each day they made more than 100 laps, without major hiccups, which is good.

Sarrazin is a good signing for SMP. He'll bring sportscar experience that their other announced drivers lack. Plus he's the fastest man ever around Spa in a sportscar. He did a 1:53.658 in qualifying last year in the low drag Toyota. So he's still got speed.

This is rather exciting, I'm really looking forward to more of these announcements. The LMP1 field is gonna be absolutely stacked with talent next season.

Tréluyer wouldn't be a bad choice either, two anchormen instantly.

Good signing for Sarrazin and the team. Hopefully he has some more speed left in him to peddle that beauty.
