veeten should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Yes
Think about it, when was the last time that Jag was involved, really involved, in prototypes. We're talking about not just a decade, but last century. Here's the chance to be in a car that can do multiple major races, on both continents. You're going to miss out on a chance like that?

Jag ain't running anything but electric for Tata, no chance there's any interest in building a WEC compliant car for any class until there's an electric class running

One thing I wouldn't mind seeing is that Alpine makes one of the cars available to the Michael Valiente team.
Represent. It would make a great PR move.

How will LMDH be balanced against Hypercars?
Will Hypercar teams be ok with cheaper cars being able to compete on equal basis?
If LMDH does compete and can outrace Hypercar, will this lead to more manufacturers committing to LMDH instead of Hypercar - would ACO be ok with this?

And vice versa for Hypercars going to race in IMSA

Wonder if all of this will drive a lot of BOP controversies

In keeping with the thread theme, I am positive that the ACO and IMSA have a handle on the BOP. They have been able to make the LMP1 Alpine, the Glickenhaus, and the Toyota pretty well balanced this season, and the Porsche will be joining the fray at the end of the season for the ACO to evaluate the comparison.

As far as costs go, the Porsche LMDH is actually more expensive to buy than the Glickenhaus hypercar, so I'm not sure the manufacturers in Hypercar can expect an upperhand for spending more money. That is how this combined class has been pitched from the beginning. It isn't a surprise to Toyota, Peugeot, Ferrari, to be competing with cars made on the lmdh platform.

LMH and LMDh are the same size and weight, use the same tyres, have the same max power limit and the same downforce to drag ratio, before BoP. If anything the performance should be easier to balance than it is for GTs.

Even the 2wd vs 4wd thing is less of an issue with the high front wheel drive activation speed they have now.

Positive!

McLaren continuing to flirt with LMDh as the 'will they, won't they' saga continues.

I could have sworn we've had almost these exact quotes from Brown before.

The interest is very high. It’s more a question of when than if. So that’s not a ‘yes,’ and there’s nothing definitive on our doing it, yet, but it’s trending in the right direction.
What do you mean? this sounds like it is certain, or certainly something they are thinking about!

The Isotta Fraschini Hypercar is... real?

https://www.dailysportscar.com/2022/...-in-build.html

Very cool exclusive by DSC. Amazing if this makes it on to the grid. Feels like inherently more hurdles for these boutique brands to overcome but sounds promising.

Seems like Isotta Fraschini is serious about their planned Hypercar. I'm interested to see how this program develops. Maybe 2023 is a bit too early if it comes to fruition, but would definitely be a welcome addition in my opinion. Reminds me of the small boutique brands challenging the big brands from back in the day.

Fascinating prospect. Interesting to hear who the engine OEM will be. With Porsche and BMW fully committed to their new campaigns, it leaves Audi, Mercedes and Opel?
