[ALMS] PLM 2012 Entry list discussion/speculation

Let's start this off early. So for this year no ILMC/WEC obviously, but ELMS have just confirmed double points & financial assistance for teams travelling to Road Atlanta. We'll have automatic entries up for grab in ALMS and ELMS championships, and teams can also win an entry by clinching victory in any of the ACO classes. Fantastic!

So let's make an early, speculative list of the entries (that will no doubt look funny in three months time):

P1
1x Cytosport HPD ARX
1-2x Dyson Lola Mazda

??? Toyota, Audi, Rebellion, Autocon, any other ???

P2

2x Level 5 HPD ARX
1x Conquest Oak Pesca
0-1x Dempsey Lola
0-2x Oak Racing Oak Pesca
0-1x TDS Oreca
0-1x Murphy Oreca
0-1x Loeb Oreca
0-1x Pecom Oreca
0-1x Greaves Zytek
0-1x Jota Zytek
0-1x Status GP Lola
? Boutsen Oreca
? Race Performance Oreca
? Extreme Limite Norma
? Libra Radical
? Starworks HPD ARX

GT

2x P&M Corvette C6.R
2x SRT Viper
2x ESM Ferrari
2x RLL BMW
2x Lizards Porsche
1x Falken Porsche
1x Paul Miller Porsche
1x AJR Lotus
0-1x IMSA Porsche (GTE-AM)
0-1x AF Corse Ferrari (GTE-AM)
0-1x JMW Ferrari
? JMB Ferrari
? Prospeed Porsche (GTE-AM)
? Risi Ferrari
? Krohn Ferrari
? AMR / Fernandes Vantage

Add LMPC and GTC later on

Oh and could some of the mods add ALMS tag to the thread topic, thanks

Of course, apart from the regular ALMS entries it's pure speculation at this point

Autosport published a rumour that Oreca were thinking of entering as a factory P2 entrant with one car in order to showcase it to the ALMS market. I suspect that with recent developments, that plan's on the back burner if enough Orecas make the trip and show themselves to be competitive.

Assuming that some of the ELMS teams actually turn up (which I think they will) I hope they score them in the same class as the ALMS entries. Sebring was a confusing, idiotic mess with 300 separate categories and sub divisions for cars from different series. Thankfully this isn't WEC and FIA-land though, so we'll probably handle this like in previous years, ie integrate everything.

Automatic invites also mean that youy really cannot have too much separation

Eh, the Dagys article says that the ELMS teams will score points separately...

Edit: Wasn't Dagy's but rather Endurance Info:

The logical thing would be scoring the points separately, but awarding automatic Le Mans invites to the top (or top two) P2 team(s) overall (combined).

That car was only supposed to come out at the Aston Martin Festival race at Le Mans, and it didn't even race there (someone crashed into it and shoved a driveshaft into the gearbox).

I like the sound of this . Road Atlanta sounds like it will be a blast this year .

Like to see some praise for the ACO for trying to do this , after all the negitive comments from across the pond before .

I thought AJR said some time ago that they might increase to 2 cars (Lotus) for Petit.

A few ELMS teams must be rubbing their hands with glee at the potential overall podium here.

Who knows, a slightly whacky race could even lead to an outwright victory.

The racing will be out of this world. If only they slowed down the P1 cars and made it one big prototype category - half the grid would have a chance of victory!

Entry list looks like a glorified ALMS race...P1 looks bleak and GT looks phenomenal. Fingers crossed we'll have some of the international entries, but won't hold my breath for three months.

Don't see how it'll be anywhere close to last year, but here's hoping I'll have a blast for the 12th year in row And hoping the torrential rain stays away.

Really? That big of a shunt?

(I may be unfair here, but prince al-Faisal crashed it and he has enough money, so he should have paid for a new chassis...)

They were on the Donington entry list for quite a long time before they withdrew so I was quite hoping to see them again soon. Shame nevertheless, I didn't think the crash was that bad
