Alpine Sportscar Discussion

https://www.planetf1.com/news/alpine...formula-e-wec/

I've been very confused about the way this news has been framed - Alpine "considering" a WEC programme, despite the fact they already have one! I know that this means they are evaluating Hypercar/LMDh, but I can't be the only one assuming this was the case with the grandfathered Rebellions? So is this news?

Regardless, we don't appear to have a dedicated thread yet!

With Toyota's comments on what will happen if their grandfathered LMP 1's BOP is too good they may be rethinking...

"alpine" 2021 WEC program is basically signatech running a second hand R13, budget aside renault/alpine effort is very limited. I think they are just testing the water to find competitions to promote the alpine brand, for the next future to me is more likely to see alpine in FE than WEC, since renault is already there and the only thing they need is another team name/livery change (renault edams -> nissan edams -> alpine edams) while a lmh/lmdh program would require a lot of time and resources.

For a cost point of view, I think that the cost of the 2021 program should be quite close to the LMP2 program as the R13 is more or less an upgraded Oreca 07. Just a shale that they are only running one car.

For the future, it doesn't look good with this FE discussion even if I think that the WEC will be a better exposure for Alpine. Lotus is a manufacturer with. a long tradition of open wheel car, not endurance racing.

In the DSC piece this week there was talk that this was a dress rehearsal by Signatech to show Renault/Alpine what a top tier prototype program could look like. But also said that they might not need too much convincing!
