That does not make them relevant to the point being made.

Anyway sell chassis and spare parts to private teams is the main business for companies like oreca and onroak. GM uses racing to promote their brands. That's why to me will be very tricky for other teams to put their hands on a cadillac dpi..... even for SoD.
One reason the Caddilac is not available is that the Dallara is not available for purchase until it receives its upgrade.

But this allows to present this point: Is it better to have a naturally better car or is it more important to be the best team using a specific car?

Let's hope Acura, Mazda and Nissan will follow suit in '19.

That Ligier update better be good!

That's the FIAT/Chrysler plant.

They currently just build the Jeep Cherokee there, and they've started construction on a testing facility. Perfect cover for an Indycar or DPi project. Someone I'm close with is adamant it's an Alfa DPi project.
That project could also be Nascar, drifting, rallycross, off-road trucks...

They've been out of Nascar for a while now and wouldn't see them coming back. Rallycross is intriguing, but isn't GRC, or one of those series, going to battery electric cars in the near future?

Electric classes will become a part of paddocks in GRC and WRX in the next few years, but I've heard nothing about the petrol class disappearing.

Marchionne didn't rule out NASCAR when asked, but to be competitive there you need to defect a major team due to the way the labor is divided between the teams and manufacturers. I don't see any team both willing and able to defect for a few years.

I'll just drop this here; I'm sure at least a few couple besides me will appreciate them.

If you can point me to where in Belvidere this testing facility is, it'd be nice to know. I fly over Belvidere routinely.

I love those new rims. Keep them !

I couldn't find any sustancial change on the aero, maybe the engine cover.

There are two new parts at the top of the side pods to let air go out.

Did they tone down the nose styling cues from the original? Doesn't look as distinct anymore.
