Interesting info on Zytek and Creation at Sebring and beyond

An alumni at the school I go to is a Michelin tire engineer. He supports various teams in the ALMS. He sent me this PM on another forum after I asked him if he were going to be at Sebring this year. He mentioned that he would probably be supporting Zytek. I asked if he were sure they would be running and this is what he sent back to me:

Quote:
Pretty sure. I'd be stunned if they didn't do the whole season. According to my boss we will be supporting them, Audi, and probably Creation ( I think they are still running the 05 chassis) for the whole year. With Dyson out of LMP1, It would be a waste of time for Audi to show up if Zytek and Creation didn't.
Take that as you will but it seems like P1 could be very interesting this season

Good because the Autocon entry is very slow.

Last thing I saw was that they (Creation) might be doing just 4-5 races, not a full season.

Different people are saying lots of very different things. I feel this one will be a definite wait-and-see. Even when plans are made, they change. Remember 2 full-season Konrad Saleens last year???

I think Audi would run a full season even without competitors. Audi North America is chaning is marketing and advertsising. The R10 and the TDI power will be a large part of this marketing.

Even with a possible add saying something like "AUDI TDI Power Wins Sebring 12 hours AGAIN. Audi TDI The LEADER of the field." or some thing like that.

Even if there are no competitors in LMP1, Marketing ppl will spin it for advertising.

Audi sales are increasing on BMW and MBs here in the states. Audi wants to be the number one selling german Luxurey car sold in the US. The R10 will be big part of that program.
