I agree. That said there is HUGE PC Pressure to become green. We are looking into several things to address the future and trying to keep ICE possible.

Token HY because its woke. Need to pay homage to the narrative.

Good term there. It's a "Homage Hybrid". Perhaps homage is what the little "h" stands for in LMDh. Not "husky" after all.

I'm also wondering if too many "good" ideas have been thought up. Just look at the stuff that Audi Sport did--they brought modern electronic DFI to auto racing, turbo diesels, helped bring in hybrids. Doesn't help either that rules got more restrictive in hopes of cost containment (restrictive in the wrong areas) while promoting OEMs to sink money into go big or go home hybrid tech. That combined with rules that IMO were too restrictive sent teams--both factory and privateer--chasing dead ends, beating dead horses for diminishing returns.

A lot of that stuff makes me appreciate stuff I saw between 2004 and 2013 or so more and more just because it seemed back then possibilities were limitless, and I wanted to see what would happen next.

At least with LMH and LMDH areo rules have been opened up a bit, weight increases place less incentive on pursuing ultra-lightweight tech and opens up powertrain choices.

I have been entertaining myself by listening to these Podacsts from the "Engineering the Greats" series (Gordon Murray, John Barnard, Frank Dernie, Patrick Head, Adrian Newey) on Motorsport Magazine. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Most entertaining.
The reason I'm posting this here is due to their takes on regulations. I know what is discussed are F1 regulations, but the principles they talk about apply to Sportscar racing too.

Enjoy!

I referenced this in the Toyota thread, but anyone think that the weight increase and single primary body kit rules for LMH may be the ACO making a mea culpa over criticism over the dorsal fins and the bulbous front fenders/wheel arches that appeared on the LM aero kits in LMP1 especially?

After all, heavier cars are harder to flip over given their increased mass, and one body kit that might have to be dirtied up for the sprint races means that aside from minor changes, you have to make the one kit work to some degree everywhere, not just LM.

Mea culpa! I don’t think they consider it an error as their priority was safety not aesthetics.

The additional weight may or may not be in their thoughts, but again I don’t think it is the priority. That is the performance level and how the class came about.
