From what I've heard they were all running the updates. Either they didn't work or the teams haven't found out how to properly make use of them yet. Although I think most of the updates concern the low downforce kits used at Le Mans, so maybe it will actually be closer there.

Maybe someone else knows this but did Oreca get an update too?

No update for Oreca, much to their disgust.

Then it does look a bit like Onroak and Dallara dropped the ball...

We shall always remember that ACO series are always a French affair.

Is casual xenophobia required to be a motorsports fan or something?

If you're commenting my posting that is an unfortunate quote. Anyone who had run or worked on a ACO-organised series knows what I am saying is true.

Okay so which of these get entry for Le Mans then... it's probably easier to ditch out cars that are almost surely not gonna go:
BHK LMP2 *
Cool Racing LMP2 *
Carlin LMP2 *
Inter Europol LMP2 *
2nd IDEC LMP2 *
2nd Algarve Pro LMP2 *
*All LMP3 teams*
Luzich GTE
2nd Kessel GTE

* Maybe to reserves

Ebimotors may be 50-50


Anyway...
https://www.europeanlemansseries.com...ns-series/5547

"For the first time the ELMS received more entries than available places and a selection process was made to fill the available slots on the 2019 grid."

Well that's not so hard to since for the first time you also did this:

"Following the decision made at the end of last season, the grid size has been limited to 41 cars for the 2019 season due to the amount of space that is available in some of the pitlane at the circuits visited by the ELMS and will allow all teams to fuel and service their cars in front of their allocated pit boxes.""

Why do they go to such circuits then that cannot hold all of the willing entries...

High Class Racing should just quit as protest. Yet another year, yeat another investment, and yet another rejection from the ACO for LM, in favor of GTE

Whilst I'm not advocating yet another ORECA LMP2, I do feel like High Class Racing deserves a spot given the investments they have made. More so than Ford and Porsche flooding GTE-Pro.

It's also funny how last year Ebimotors managed to get to Le Mans by just running GT3 in sprint support series the previous year, but now that they've actually been for a while in the bigger endurance series with ACO car, they're at the bottom of reserves. Not that I would have ever wanted another LMP car being rejected for more GTE but just saying the perversion
