Would your team be able to participate by then?

Me too have big concerns about WEC sebring, US covid pandemic is getting worse and worse and despite the vaccine it's unlikely things will get a lot better in about 2 months. I'm sure sebring 12H is more likely to happen because all IMSA teams are US based, but in these conditions delivery cars and make fly hundreds of people from europe to US and back will be a logistic nightmare (not to consider extremely dangerous to people health). Also F1 postponed the australian race and bahrain aside, for the first half of championship will likely try to avoid races outside europe.
Solution could be to race in april in monza, and replace monza with silverstone in august.

There is A LOT of non-US based personnel in IMSA paddock.

The last I heard is that it is a go for the 12Hours of Sebring. For a WEC point of view, it is a 50/50. Some WEC teams will be already in the states as they will run at Daytona.


The IMSA and the WEC paddack were clearly seperated in Sebring 2 years ago so the risk of cross contamination is low between the two bubbles. The nightmare will be logiticaly but protocols have been developped since the outbrake of the virus a year afo so it should be manageable.

Major Florida February/March events, Cavallino/Amelia Island Concours/St Pete Indycar race are being pushed back to (?). Europe/US air travel is very difficult. Quarantine requirements in Europe. Costs. Uncertainty. IMSA Sebring is likely
as IMSA owns Sebring and Florida covid restrictions are lax but WEC Sebring for Euro based teams? We don't see it happening. The recent US political craziness doesn't help either.
We think Portimo in late April more likely start of season. We would make that race with our two cars.

Portimao as in a replacement for the 1st round as opposed to it being cancelled or postponed?

In 2020 WEC Sebring was cancelled. In 2020 Cavallino happened in Florida in January and Amelia Island happened in Florida in March. This year Covid Florida is worse today than at this time in 2020 and both events have been postponed. This week there were 25 cases of "UK" Covid in Florida. Very tough times. IMSA owns Daytona and Sebring and can bubble and social distance. The issue is can/will WEC Europe teams be able/ want to come over?
The WEC will figure it out one way or another. Difficult job they have.

this crybaby attitude of toyota every year is getting annoying....
they saw last year an equal fight with rebellion before Le Mans....now the wheel turned....and they see it differently....
In my opinion after 3 somewhat hollow victory...(it would have been much more deserved in 2016) it is time that they get sweat...
I personally cheer up for Glickenhaus....for different reasons (David vs. Goliath, ICE vs. hybrid)
Alpine, TGR, Glickenhaus...3 different approaches, technical and political as well....
I do hope ACO let them fight....Rebellion never got the chance....but it is a new era...

I understand after reading the note that the new Hypercar is much slower than the LMP1. The Alpine is still an LMP1 so if the ACO doesn't slow it down enough they will have an advantage.
Kamui Kobayashi said "We lost a lot of laptime [compared to the LMP1]".

And you do have to remember that a goal of Hypercar and LMDH is to slow the top class cars at LM by several seconds at least a lap around Le Mans. Other that ballasting up the Alpine Rebellion and maybe taking away some power, how do you balance LMP1 and LMH?

Remember, LMH/LMDH weighs a minimum of 1030kg (which I still think is a bit excessive), while the Rebellion needed ballast to meet 835kgs.

The R13 is an optimized Oreca 07. By downgrading the engine to the LMP2 version of the Gibson, they should slowdown the car by a couple of spec. Than with a bit of weight, it should be manageable to reduce the performance and match the performance ce windows of the GR010

ACO, of course, prevent a French team win at Le Mans.
