I'm sure signatech will keep on being the one under the alpine umbrella.
To me the car should be named alpine R20 (R13+07)

The hope is that this transforms into a LMH/LMDh project, but what are they exactly learning from grandfathered non-hybrid LMP1 that they couldn't already learn from LMP2?

Pick up the scraps and get a possible overall win to put in the display case?

Indeed, that was the point I was making. Perhaps there is no long-term plan.

They know the car in and out, making it effectively a pure branding effort from Alpine/Renault side.

I wonder if organisers have pushed Alpine towards this move a little too, P2 really isnt a place for manufacturers, so its a logical progression.

They say, grandfathered LMP1 to be on a par with Нурегсагs. Surprise, surprise. What for did they need to build a complete new machinery if they can bring some garbage from the museum and still be competitive. Utter circus.

Also confirmed in that story that Signatech will be running the cars.

What do you reckon the chances would be of LMP1 grandfathered performance equalling LMH performance if Rebellion had decided to continue rather than Alpine.
I reckon 0%.

What museum? and what garbage? The car placed second a few days ago! The ACO always said the current cars would be eligible next season, just never said with what regulations exactly. The R13 is still going to be slowed to make it on pace with hypercar.

Of course, how will the ACO slow a car that ran 3:15 in qualifying at LM just a few days ago to running 3:30?


Granted, I very much doubt that the LMP1 Hypercars will be doing 3:30s. Somewhere between 3:20 and 3:25 is more realistic, given that even though they'll be heavier, and have less hybrid power, they'll be making a guaranteed 700bhp or so engine power, which is nearly a 100 or there abouts more than what Toyota are making now. They will also be longer and wider, especially wider (about 2000mm vs 1900mm) and might run wider wheels and tires.
