When/where did Peugeot say they would build an open prototype?

Autosport print edition says Aston Martin carried out a 2011 design study which has led them down the open car route with a 3.4l V8.

Arh, but Autosport has been wrong in their articles before.
But let's see, im sure AMR or David Richards will say something in the weekend, as it's the ideal time for letting some details out.

All the teams are waiting for the 2011 regs to be finalized and released before making that sort of decision, though most likely have concepts for both closed and open cars developed to some level. Bruno Famin was candid about impatiently waiting for the ACO to stop dragging their feet on the regulations for that reason. Allan McNish, however, implied that Audi would continue their allegiance to the open concept as part of the corporate ethos.

GT2-R, I'm with you man...though I wouldn't mind if cars looking like that (even a vette) formed the basis for a newer GT1 formula either. Whatever way is fine... I would also be happy if they just accepted the top 10 or 12 cars from the FIA GT1 WC as the GT1 class. Now THAT would be nice...

(forming yet another unpopular opinion, lol)

There's some talk about a spec chassis.

When all's said and done I expect the chassis to be virtually identical to current cars with major changes limited to the engine and hybrid systems.

The whole reason the Evo rules were dropped was so current chassis could continue racing.

OAK Racing have built a 2011 P1 development car so the regulations must be pretty much finalised, a number of current P2 teams also look likely to move upto P1.

Damn, the R15 is so new and they are already developing a new car.

anything else would just be a compromise. And against a brand new Peugeot, a compromise isn't the best shot!

The ACO is to blame because there is no transition period from the current to the new rules.

With the arrival of smaller engines and a hybrid drive train, a new chassis is almost mandatory. Weight balance can be improved because the engine will be shorter, gearbox can be made lighter because it has to cope with less torque, where to put the batteries, etc.

Appreciating that the top 10 or 12 FIA GT1 cars were certainly welcomed to enter the LMS, or LM this year... and chose not to. The ACO gave them the opportunity, and they chose not to take it. They'll likely be legislated from future participation now.

That maybe true for the diesels but the Lola's etc. are already designed for P1/P2.

Personally I think the only chance GT1 had of re-establishing itself as Le Mans was if Nissan made a big effort this year due to being the only major manufactuer with a new reg car.

I think there'd actually be more interest from Nissan enthusiats in seeing a GT2 GT-R with the V6 Turbo, even if it was RWD.

From an interview with Ralf Jüttner:
Quote:
As if the task of getting through the 24 Hours of Le Mans wasn’t enough, Jüttner says work on their next prototype, the R18, has been running concurrently with their preparation for this weekend’s race.

“That’s definitely on the agenda already. So the work is already on its way, let's put it like this. And it's not a secret that the people are in place and the people are thinking and the people are making their mind up and they have some rough ideas already about how the rules should look like next year. So it's not completely fixed but it's not like the ACO hasn't come up with something already where the direction goes. So the people are thinking about it, they are having ideas, they are putting work together, but the real amount of money is spent once we start building parts. And that has not yet started, of course. But if you wait with the whole thing until the rule makers come up then you are not running before very late in 2011!”
