If the new chassis materializes, it'll be about the only interesting car on the grid for me next anyways. All the rest are standardized and/or butchered beyond salvation. And yes while this thing would effectively also be competing in a joke of a class imitating World Wresting Entertainment, at least the weird decisions of ByKolles, as well as the Minardi esque underdog quality in it, makes following the "progress" of the team itself interesting. So go Dr Kolles. Let's embrace the weirdness, it's all we have left. Even if the thing explodes 60 seconds in race it'll still probably be worth seeing to see how and why it did so, in it's uniqueness.

Before that we also (maybe/probably) have Le Mans 2020 with the old Frankenstein CLM but at least there are still 6 other interesting cars in it too.

It will be interesting to see how it works. Other cars, but tough opposition at the moment. But it has a chance. Kolles does at least know what he is doing. It will be tough, so who knows what result they will get. I just hope they get some decent result, they have done hard work, are still here, and who knows what the future will hold. Letís see the boysí hard work paid off

I'm interested in the hypercars in general. Toyota Glickenhaus and ByKolles all have their own unique cars and chassis. Lmdh won't because it'll be more lmp2 rebadging going on which to me makes it less appealing. We'll have to see what direction Peugeot goes but I think hypercar is the better route because there's no tiny hp limit on the hybrid power.

2021 Le Mans might still semi-watchable-ish because there will be just 4-5x LMHs and 0-2x old Ginetta LMP1s, and most of them probably will be having new car teething issues and explode mid way through the race. And BoP won't yet be quite be so apparent of a horror show considering there's already a sort of built-in separation between quality of the teams involved (it goes: Toyota-Glickenhaus-(Ginetta)-Kolles)) and no political agenda between big OEMs. But 2022 will be absolutely nightmare.

IMO Peugeot would be foolish in choosing the more expensive route if they can get away with it via spec car and spec hybrid system. This is not the old world anymore

So,

ByKolles is on pole for Le Mans 24 Hours

(Hopefully, if they make a press release out of this they leave out the bit where it says it's a mere Virtual race with Oreca-only entries and SIM racers putting out the times, as it'd be way funnier this way )

Yes! They should put out as much press on this as possible!

How accurate is the simulation though? Too accurate and we'll see a fire again and a P2 winner.

I guess if after all these seasons they are apparently finally happy with the car, it would be probable that they'd continue for one more year with it. It should also be easier to make this car slower, to align with Hyperwagons, than the effort they've been putting in making it faster...

Yes, I agree. A proper little racing team that doesn't know when to quit. Old school.
