First I had seen this confirmed, that is nice! Wonder what type of engine they are looking for? Who builds their GT3 engines?

Would that matchup between those two great names work? Of course it's a few years away if it does happen, so things can change till then. Be interesting to see what actually happens. I do wonder how much longer McLaren will remain in sportscars for

Didn't expect Ye to end up at Porsche, if I'm honest - even though from last season it was clear he'd be be picked up by somebody.

The next question is what next year looks like for Ye - I know VAG brands co-operate more than most, but with so many seats potentially available, and with WRT angling for the Audi gig, I can't see him staying with WRT for 2022.

Penske? They've got a LMP2 team rumored to be up and running for the WEC to prepare for the IMSA and WEC LMDH programs.

Ricardo builds the engines, based (if I remember right) off the old Nissan Group C V8 design that was also used in the R390 GT1.

veeten should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
... just as I figured. I knew that Rahal would get the nod for the IMSA entry. Now the question is, who will be running the WEC version?

I think there was an assumption that a top team (e.g. JOTA) might take up the running of the cars in WEC on a semi-works basis.

But yeah, BMW have really not given WEC a lot of love in the last decade and early signs aren't great. But by '24 fingers crossed there is something in place around customer cars.
