If I remember correctly, BMW has a strict "we don't race our customers" policy. Which means there can only be customer BMW LMDh cars in WEC, if there is no works presence.

Team RMG, which was BMW’s development partner on the M4 GT3, is set to carry the same role on the collaborative Europe-based development of the BMW M LMDh, which is expected to hit the track for the first time next year.

If there's a WEC project it could be Team RMG.

Not directly related to Hypercar but there are stories swirling around of Audi buying or partnering with McLaren as a way into F1. Could presumably have implications for a McLaren LMDh programme IF it were to happen.

It has been interesting how much the story spread from a single vague report about Audi outright buying McLaren late last week. Can't imagine Audi has that kind of monetary freedom

The funniest part is that BMW ended up denying buying McLaren.

Yeah, it was like McLaren was the holiday turkey and being carved up. One of the reports was McLaren Racing (F1 and sportscar arm) was going to Audi, all streetcar projects were going to BMW and the remaining non-car specific technical stuff was left out, you know the part that makes money hand over fist.

Based on forum law that means it must be true.

That part was sold off a couple of months ago:

McLaren Group agrees sale of McLaren Applied

'Following a strategic review to focus the company's growth as a global luxury supercar and elite motorsport business, McLaren Group has agreed to sell its Applied business division to Greybull Capital.'

The proportions are P2-ish. Perhaps a track day car based on the new P2 tub?

It can't be an LMP2, it's a bit early for 2024.
An LMDh Ligier? They are authorized to do so as one of the 4 approved builders and now they have no customers at the moment, I guess they decided to make their own car.
We only know that they have a partnership with Peugeot in LMH but there is no LMDh Ligier.

LMDh uses the next generation LMP2 car as a base, so i don't see why it couldn't be a P2? Porsche already have a car near testing with the Riley chassis, so I think it could be done.

That was my thinking, if you haven't made progress on your next gen P2 you are WAY behind.
