From what Graham said it was a fully private venture anyway - not factory backed. So not a surprise they don't have a high order slot on the chassis production line.

In hindsight, very optimistic for year one, but there could be more possibilities of this nature in future years.

It wasn’t likely to go far without factory backing. Especially if the actual manufacturer didn’t consider LM a priority. I never thought it was going to happen this year anyway. We’ll just have to get through the next few years and see what happens

I have seen no announcements about the future of the class, but thought it was due for a refresh in 2022 or 2023.
Dallara: “Totally Different Grounds” With New Gen LMP2
Dallara looking to take lessons learned from first-gen LMP2 car into new 2024 contender…

“I know the ACO guys and I believe everyone wants to see diversity,” Angelelli said. “I believe every one of us has learned a lesson.
“I think the next LMP2 generation will start from totally different grounds. I believe we’ll see representation from all four constructors.

Other than Oreca, all the other LMP2 cars were flawed in one way or another. Angelelli seems confident this wouldn't happen again, but he doesn't say why. Is he implying there'll be BoP in P2 now? I don't know if that's the solution, but it's quite clear that any concept of a prototype with arrested development (an oxymoron, I know) is likely to produce problematic machines. The one car that turned out just fine is the result of a development process that began before the rule set was even carried over to P2, and that development involved actual racing and a lot of troubleshooting. Who knew that having an exclusive opportunity to rehearse a job interview and knowing all the questions in advance may give you an edge vs. other candidates, right?

PS: I wonder how many separate articles can John Dagys produce in the coming weeks and months based on a single talk with Angelelli
