You know if there is one thing I love about current LMP2 is just the same what Sam Collins says - there is no really balance of performance in the class apart from baseline setups and some minor things put in place ages ago (like HPD restrictor etc). Couple of years ago, don't remember exactly when, I was kinda getting worried when the ACO actually said in a press release that the performances will now be modified further in necessarily - but it's all been very quiet in that front. There are no constant committee decision sheets coming out like in GTE. Which is excellent!

I suppose it's partly due to there not being real dominator like RS Spyder or sth out there in P2, but whatever the cause, it's great for the category. They could've messed it up, but they haven't. Chiana is pleased.

Is there any hybrid tech allowed in P2? For example, if Honda homologated the new coupe with some energy recovery tech?

LMP2 is more or less cost-capped. Hybrid technology is expensive, so I don't think will be allowed soon in lmp2

Has anything been heard recently about the Tiga LMP2 car?
http://www.tigaracecars.com/LMP_cars.shtml

Apparently it's ready?
Is one or two likely to turn up next year?

I thought Mike Newton mentioned something about starting to run the car later this year? And that was on RLM only about two weeks ago.

Thanks, I'd missed that.
I hope either Tiga run it themselves or sell a couple to someone else.

Some variety apart from just Morgans and Orecas is needed, variety is the spice of life after all.

lotus T128 basicly is the adess lmp2; other cars like tiga or pilbeam are more or less vaporware. About engines, the ford ecoboost and the dinan-bmw are DP units, are not used in lmp2.

Pilbeam is vaporware, the Tiga is in development and we know that it should be based on the old Embassy/WFR LMP2. Ford Ecoboost - Libra used that engine in LMP2, but for a full 2 races. As for Dinan-BMW, they did announce that they could re-engineer their DP engine for LMP2 use if any customers were to turn up (which they haven't).

Some more engine variety would be nice bit otherwise looking good. Your list misses the Multimatic Lola, although I fear the end of them.

exact the lola b12/80 is missing. I know that tiga is still in development but realisticly I think that there isn't any customer intersted. Look at the bailey lmp2, the car exists since 2011 but nobody cared about that car...
You're right libra racing used a ford ecoboost engine in laguna seca 2012 if am I not wrong, and joint also TUSC test in late 2013... but (correct me if am I wrong) it was a different engine, not the one used by ganassi riley DP3.

Mike Newton (who used to race Lola run by RML) surely will race the Tiga, thats why he builds it in the first place.

I think it's the same engine architecture, but the DP engine is 300cc larger.

The Pilbeam MP100 is the MP93 painted in white at this moment. Pilbeam said that they was going to make a different bodywork in 2014 and I have no idea if they made any mechanical modification or the promised new engine made by Pillbeam.
