They could generate similar lap times, but come race day and the DPs were miles ahead because they had more torque to deal with the traffic.

Not a complaint, as I love the hybrid torque, but don't be surprised if the gap opens up when they hit traffic. The hybrids have an absolutely brutal ability when dealing with.
Could happen, but they are limited to 8mj per lap. The best way to make lap time is accelerating on the long straights like dragsters. If they have to use the hybrid to pass traffic it'll compromise them on other parts of the lap. This track is nearly twice as long as Spa but they only have 2mj more here. If you take Spa's length to hybrid power available and applied it to Le Mans, they'd have something around 12mj of hybrid. That's where I think the non-hybrids can actually do something. They're limited on fuel usage too, but not nearly as much as Toyota is. I envision it that way at least, but who knows. At least we won't until tomorrow!

I just read on DSC that the #3 Rebellion toasted its gearbox on the last lap but still managed to finish third.

LMPFan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Here is the Rebellion R13 in it's high downforce package.

I wonder how they managed to get around the "two aerodynamic devices per front corner" rule. I can see two dive-planes and a turning vane.
Anyway, considering through the Porsche Curves the lower downforce version managed 280+ km/h, Copse, Maggots-Becketts and Stowe will be simply ridiculous this weekend.

[I say lower and not low downforce because the Le Mans kit was too downforce-heavy. Seemed to me to be more of a Spa-type kit. Medium downforce, if you will.]

Look at the hole in the bodywork next to the engine cover. Wonder if that's for cooling?

Do you mean the one on the top of the side-pod? If so, that's been there since the first renders.
Cooling would be a good guess as there are radiators in the vicinity, plus the engine is making more power and therefore more heat than the LMP2 lump so has different coolinh needs.

Yup, you're right. I looked back at pics from Le Mans and Spa and they were there.
