long term deal confirmed 1x MSR + 1xWTR acura LMDh




of course "confirmed" according to official statements released so far, everything can change in the meantime.
Impossible to tell by now if AF corse, BMW or porsche will still be present as factory effort in WEC/IMSA GT classes.
Thanks for this running update, looking great.

Yes Ferrari should also be present in the GT ranks. Aren't ORECA building their new car?
Then there will be Porsche, Lambo, Merc, Chevy, Aston, Audi and the new cars from Ford, Lexus and whoever else?

Thanks mate, very helpful. Would i be right in assuming that the IMSA BMWs and Acuras could/would submit an application for LM 2023?

Other thing i'm not too clued up on. 2024 sees GT3 in WEC/LM, but ProAm, not works teams? Would that mean a factory backed GT3 team from say Mercedes, Bentley or McLaren could be eligible if the driver line up was right?

Yes Oreca will be 296 gt3 tuner/manufacturer as michelotto will be more involved in hypercar program, and as far I was reading last summer news, ACO switched to gt3 cars encouraging a GT class targeted mainly to private teams, but here again the old question: A private teams full of work drivers and engineers is still a real private team?
So far BMW confirmed only a factory program in IMSA, considering they struggled a lot in WEC with M8 both on track and on politics rooms, I don't know how realistically they are considering a LM only program, on a factory effort at least. About Acura, MSR and WTR aren't financially backed by honda as far I know, guess to go or not to go at le mans it's up only to them.
Forgot to write that according to some rumors, the multimatic+porsche lmdh platform will be available for private teams as well (according to their statements) and probably lamborghini will jump on the train by 2024.

I believe the driver lineup will be VERY restricted. I saw one proposal would drop it back to Bronze driver required and only one Gold or Silver. Would assume that would mean 2 Bronze drivers for LM. I think they very much want to eliminate any factory team involvement in WEC GT class to force them to build hypercar or leave. How well they stick to that is to be seen

Well 2024 would be 100 years since their first win and good time to be hybrid before their all electric future in 2030, or the 27-20 wins but 100 years is a nice number.

Looks like no Ford involvement in LMDh, even as an engine supplier. But it will be cool to have official Mustangs running in GT3.

DSC had an interview with Larry Holt. Multimatic has been an incredibly busy organization the last few years.

Lots of Mustang info, with a little Porsche and Audi sprinkled in at the end. They have just built Audi's first chassis, while Porsche has been delivered more than one.
