New Engines in LMP1

Check out a very interesting article on DSC regarding the new Audi.

We already know about the NASAMAX Judd using alternative fuel and the Judd V10 diesal. Are there any more alterantive powered cars in the pipeline.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, alternative powered cars are the future for LM, particularly in the LMP classes. Were else is there a better test bed, and such freedom in the regs than LM for these new types of engines.

A Ricardo V10 Judd diesel in the back of an Audi? Altough I know they do supply the drivetrain/gearbox of the R8 I do not understand this strategy - if it is true of course. Recently I had a mail conversation with the people of Ricardo and it seems that they are to only one with a race diesel today. Altough Audi may have developed one and Cosworth too - but seem to have stopped development. Who owns Cosworth anyway? Audi?

The Judd V10 is a seperate project to Audi as far as I am aware.

As for diesals at LM, can't wait myself. They will sound very different to our average road car, as every competition engine does.

Oh great, somehow they would become even slower and less attractive.

Changing back to topic, I figure any diesel that would be able to run with the Audi, Judd or Elan engines would have to put out one heck of an interesting sound! Bring them on! Seriously, maybe that is what gets the manufactures off the fence and involved, and new challenge to justify developement costs. Bring them on!
