Forgot this one existed.

Fingers crossed it materialises and runs well in the WEC next season.

If the car is in a good state already maybe itíll run some race day testing at one or two of this seasons WEC races

This Goodyear tie up looks like a big deal for Brabham. Is it a big deal for Goodyear? Not really unless they plan to do something more than a night race at Silverstone in November. Are there GTE plans with Goodyear down the line? Or are Goodyear just using this to develop GTE-type tyres somewhat under the radar before tendering for a GTE spec tyre deal?

Correction-Brands Hatch instead of Silverstone.

Interesting development.Live 20 mins away so I know where I'll be that day.

The Dunlop brand in Europe and North America is owned by Goodyear. In Asia and South America it is owned by Sumitomo (which also owns Falken).

Wonder how different the P2 and GTE tires are, think I'd read they would be using a similar tire to the LMP2 runners. I may they're all rubber and hopefully round but how similar are they in construction and compounds? Although I guess we won't really know since the GTE tires are all confidentials aren't they?

I guess the logic is the BT62 is close to the weight of an LMP2 but it sure isn't making anywhere near the downforce. Considering the entire ELMS GTE class is on Dunlop they aren't lacking for an option there.

Kinda rather see this car in GTE not hypercar. If they do the latter, I think they'll need to do a prototype unless they alter the current car big time and it has a bit more downforce. The differences between the two classes are basically freedom of aero and power/weight with road car requirements on different levels. I think hypercar is a better option in their mind because of the production levels that will take a while to meet. In hypercar they can make about a couple dozen and call it a day.

I think either would do, but it depends on the future of the series. How long will the hypercar be for? It makes sense at this time though to go down that route. I wish them the best

Goodyear seemed to be every where at Silverstone with the brabham on display so looks like we will see plenty of both over the next few years

The Brabham did look good, although the paint job was a little suspect...

I'd definitely be interested in going to the race at Brands in November @Truckosaurus?

I wish them all the best, it's going to be tough to get success, but they have it in them to do it. Be interesting to see it in an actual race
