ALMS-FANATIC should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
ALMS possibilities

with the grand-am practically ruling out an SR1-LMP900 chassis, do you guys think that these cars will be regular competitors at ALMS events.

- Doran Lista Dallara LMP
- Crawford Racing Crawford SCC
- Robinson Racing R&S MK3-C
- Sezio Florida Norma M2002
- Pegasus Racing Lola B2K-10

As for the european ALMS race(s) I'm hoping that these cars will join.

- Pescarolo Sport Courage C60 2x
- Racing for Holland Dome S101 2x
- Team Oreca Dallara LMP 2x
- Courage Competition Courage C60JX 1x
- Durango Formula GMS LMP1 1x

What do you guys think

About American teams is very probably their move to ALMS. About European teams??? I don´t believe because of is very expensive a full season in USA and also their sponsors are European without interest in America.

It has to be said that the biggest loss to date from ALMS was the Favanelli Lola - The seris needs a good competitive privateer.

Yes I think they'll be there. Perhaps not run by Doran, but a Lista Dallara-Judd anyway.

Doubtful. Crawford seems to be focussing on his DSP. I believe the SR1/LMP has been pretty much abandoned.

- Robinson Racing R&S MK3-C
Don't know. It all depends on the team's plans for next year; if they'll stay in ALMS they will probably run this car.

- Sezio Florida Norma M2002
Mr. Sezionale says they want to be there but they are a small outfit so they may not do a full season.

- Pegasus Racing Lola B2K-10
To be honest, I doubt if we will see that car on track again after 2002.

(did you purposely leave out the MGs and Bentley(s), btw?)
Quote:
- Pescarolo Sport Courage C60 2x
they have had tech trouble this year; they may not pursue the de Cortanze Courage project. We'll see. I hope they can keep Peugeot support, or find another good engine deal.

The second chassis isn't actually Lammers' car; he only loaned it from the factory.
Quote:
- Team Oreca Dallara LMP 2x
they may be doing LM only, as this year (their FIASCC outings don't really count; those were nothing more than extended test sessions). Looking for a works engine deal.
Quote:
- Courage Competition Courage C60JX 1x
Hopefully. And maybe he'll sell one or two cars?
Quote:
- Durango Formula GMS LMP1 1x
I doubt that very much. It's simply not a competitive car.
Maybe we'll see the R&M as well although that won't be competitive against the current frontrunning LMP machinery either.

Some cars I'd like to see in FIASCC competition (because I believe there will be a series next year) are all those European teams mentioned above, as well as all those Lola B98s and B2Ks that are currently in storage (Konrad! Kremer! Berridge post-"Michel Vaillant"!) as well as an Eventus car that doesn't break down ; the Rowan Reynards; the Rafanelli/Blieninger long-tail R&S Mk.III; maybe a privateer MG?? (alright so I'm asking too much); a couple of SR2 Pilbeams and Lolas - In other words: a solid 20 car grid every time out. And a stable schedule, please.

They are still there - with the F550 in GTS. In terms of category success, that's a much more competitive car than the B2K.

And as for Pegasus, I believe Oliver Kuttner bought a Doran DSP.
