Yeah they already angered an entire fanbase. Could they do it all over again? Will only believe this when I see it on track, at a race.

If I am not mistaken, valkyrie and valhalla chassis (carbon tub + suspensions) were designed by RBR and multimatic, with the american company scheduled to materially start production of both cars soon.
Provided those cars are respecting LMH size limits, guess nothing would prevent AMR to homologate a LMH version of valkyrie or valhalla being both hybrid cars.

Bit of a weird take from Watkins here, imo. Surely it was always assumed that IMSA and the WEC would have different names for their top class. What's new?

Yeah agree, hard to see the issue. Sportscar fans are more than used to this sort of minutiae and for the casuals I think big brands racing for the win trumps any sort of naming issues.

I think there are far bigger concerns around BoP and race invitations than any sort of naming stuff.

There was a good soapbox from Marshall Pruett on his podcast around how IMSA had emailed him to say the cars will still be known as LMDh's despite running in the GTP class. I would guess the ACO might have seen their arse when GTP got announced by IMSA. But ultimately it's already pretty confusing, LMH, LMDh, Hypercar. What's another name to add to the list?

Aston turning up in a hypercar would be a massively weird move. Not unwelcome in terms of grid diversity but their journey to the race (theoretically) would be a pretty bizzare one.

Without big bop changes related to power output, fuel tank size etc to make IMSA GTP slower than WEC LMDh... is logical to think that cars from IMSA GTP running at LM will be included in the WEC hypercar class

Traditionally IMSA GTP, GTX and GTO cars ran in their own classes up to the mid eighties. Admittedly that was before BoP was thought of.

Why would they need that, LMDh should be running with Hpercars, it's just a different way to build a car for the class. I believe the GTP and LMDh cars should be BOP'd together by ACO and IMSA review at Windshear and Sauber facility with track data

Should work like GTE at Le Mans no? Common BoP surely the entire point of the convergence.

Not sure why it's even being discussed?

Have to wonder how long he keeps going with how mediocre Lance is. Aston doesn't make any money selling cars, they are spending a huge amount on F1 (facilities etc...) When he loses interest they are going to be royally screwed.

it's not about a technical reg issue but more something related to sport regs.. just to make an example, probably lmdh will be made with 100L or even larger fuel tank to have close to 1 hour long stint like toyota and probably peugeot and ferrari as well, but IMSA could cut fuel tank size to GTP to keep the same 40-45min long stint as nowadays dpi/lmp2.
It's all about if IMSA will decide to give a more remarked identity to GTP rather than lmdh with a nostalgic name running in US. In that case wouldn't be so unlikely to see same cars running on different bop/settings to be in different classes.
But that's just an ipothetic scenario, at the end I think american teams running in IMSA GTP will be included in hypercar class at LM, using same WEC bop
