Loss of AER in general I meant. I'm pretty sure 2 engines in the first two lead classes, and 5 (6 if we count the P1-P2 Zytek difference) engines across the entire field is the lowest it's ever been at LM. Even 1992 and 1920's had more in their tiny fields

Same goes for chassis as we have 5 different in LMP (6 if we count the P1-P2 Oreca difference) and 3 in GTE

Anyway AER was interesting, even if sketchy and fire prone, and sounded good

Shame they won't be competing, but not really too surprised either. We really didn't need to lose another one out of the top class though.

Shame to see but understandable.
I think that quarantine aside, the reasons of their withdraw is just they couldn't find paying drivers for #5, same for #6 + issues with dyson since it seems LNT didn't pay them for the AER engines supply

I don't have any doubt that money is the root cause of the withdrawal.... It has been the downfall of that team/car since the very start....

It was always on the cards when they didn't enter prior rounds, but were testing away from WEC on their own....

A real shame as they will struggle to get the ACO onside if they pull out like this.

I really think the fire problem was installation related. But that could be an engineering design failure on the part of AER, perhaps not having designed a full package (plug and play)?

Isn't Dyson a major if not complete interest in AER?

Hard to say...

AER comes from a long long tradition of blowing engines....
is hard to understand why their engines have never actually been reliable at all...
maybe they always used to save on materials wear to propose a more competitive price for their supply compared to judd or zytek alternatives.
To be honest, need to say that the latest p60 version was extremely powerful and quite reliable last year inside SMP cars (for le mans at least).

Agree, the non-exploding SMP podium was the most surprising, and memorable moment of last year. If it was to be the last time AER raced at LM, at least in a non-bop category, it was a fitting end

and considering SMP AER p60 had >700hp, it was the most powerful petrol engine since post group C era.

Talk of non-payment for engines is not correct

Chris Dyson is a co-owner of AER

I'm sure that LNT paid AER for the engines. I believe that Tominson's goals have moved elsewhere as far as how he wants to spend his money on Ginetta's racing programs. Not that it's going doing him and Ginetta many favors in the eyes of the ACO.
