Possible 2005 LMES entries.

Seeing as we are coming to the end of the sportscar season I've decided to put another list together, this time for potential entries for the 2005 LMES.

Judging by the latest news and rumours it looks like 2005 will be another giant leap forward for the the prototype class, with both quality teams and cars expected to enter.



So here goes:-


LMP1

Audi UK x 2 R8s?

Rollcentre x 2 Dallara. Second dependant on budget

RFH ?

Taurus x 1 Diesal

Courage Competion x 1 C60 Hybrid

NASAMAX x 2 DM139 Hybrids

Listor Racing x 1 Storm Hybrid

Creation Autosportif x 2 Zyteks. Second dependant on budget

Pescarolo Sport x 1 Pescarolo C60 Hybrid

Team Jota x 1 Zytek

Chamberlain x 1 Lola?



LMP2

RML x 1 B01/60 Hybrid. Second chassis possible

Belmondo Racing x 2 C65 Hybrid

Welter Racing - x 1 Hybrid WR V6

Tracsport x 1 C65/Lola

PiR Competition x 1 ?

Lucchini Engineering x 1

G Force x 1 ?

Palmyr x 1 ?

Noel Del Bello x 2 C65 Hybrids

Epsilon x 1 C65 Hybrid



GTS

Larbre x 2 Prodrive 550s

Vitaphone x 2 S7Rs

GNM x 1 S7R

GPC x 1 575GTC

Barron Conner Racing x 2 575 GTCs

Creation Autosportif x 1 C5-R


Any more to add?

I know Courage announced that they would build a C60 prototype, but did they actually announce that they would race it also?

And did Barron Conner announce that they would run in 2005?

Don't know if you have seen or not but Tracsport have been testing a Courage for the LMP2 category next season rather than the Lola

Courage are racing the C60 hybrid as they do not want to compete against their customers with the C65. I would assum BCR will carry on with the 575GTC as they want to stick with Ferrari.

There are also 2 confirmed European customers for the new Lola. That could run in both LMP1 or LMP2.

I think they are still considering their options.

RML were linked with the new Lola, as well as leasing an 'MG' Lola from the factory for next season.

I would be suprised to see Larbre running the 550's. Suggestions are being made that they will be changing classes next year.

...of course, Larbre occasionally ran multiple classes this year. But that Panoz will be retired after this year.

It's a LMES 2005 entry list thread Tim.

Unless you're asking if any ALMS teams might compete in the LMES next year?

Although Tim, I do nominate you to start a 2005 ALMS entry list thread.

This was a simlar situation to the attempt to sell the Panoz LMP to customers when it was passed it's sell by date. In this case, the car isn't a proven winner yet, and unless they can make some big gains or can offer them quite quickly, I don't see a lot of people in line.

The full Panoz press release that lmsr.net got its information from is posted at my link above.

That the cars would be run in the LMES next year, and by whom has been agreed upon since mid summer. Of course, who that team is, has been given away already. There is a pretty extensive testing program planned for the winter, both in North America, and at said principle's private track (Not in South Africa).

Just for emphasis, in case you all missed it. Some people have been sitting on this information for a few months, now.

My personal angle is that I hope Scott Maxwell lands a ride in the second ALMS-bound Panoz. He had done a lot of the initial development work, and ought to have been in the first one instead of noodling around in the Lambo, but timing is everything.
