My sincere apologies if this has been posted before. It's been a pretty crazy week on this forum with all the news and I can't remember what I've read on here before and what I have not. Anyway, OAK's general manager Francois Sicard seems to have left OAK to take the general manager position at DAMS. I wonder what OAK will do and also if this may have any influence on DAMS' Le Mans goals.

That's sad but also a happy moment going by the looks on the faces of those in the pics. The project has given some people some really valuable experience in international motorsport. Where to now for the car?

That's nice!
A true phoenix (incredible how many there are of those at Le Mans)
If they get success they could sell the idea, and maybe use it to increase their efforts of development? .
Any reports on chassis? - Dome?

Autosport says that they buy closed monocoque (LOLA?), and build original LMP.

Nice, so something like Pescarolo did with the Courage cars?.
It's really good news this, as it hopefully can awake the Japanese World Motorsport interest

Fuel for the Buemi/Toyota fire:

dsceditor Graham Goodwin
Now confident that we will have TWO Toyota LMP1s at Le Mans 24 Hours this year - Buemi plus 2 x Japanese drivers in second car

Buemi? I'd think they'd go for someone else like Duval or someone. Maybe next year with DiGrassi Davidson and former Peugeot drivers. As for the two Japanese drivers, my guess would be Akira Iida and Juichi Wakisaka. Maybe Takuyuki Kinosh!ta.

Well, it could just be Nakajima plus another Japanese driver to make 2. I don't know.

Nakajima is to pilot the same car as Wurz and Lapierre. If another car is confirmed, this rumor is closer to reality and the Japanese drivers I mentioned are Toyota regulars.

Just because they are the three announced drivers so far does not necessarily mean they will be in the same car I don't think.

Their names were on the side of the test car. They're the only confirmed one's. I think it'll be said soon.
