Remember that there WILL be RLM coverage of FP1-3, starting tomorrow

For the last few (maybe even 5?) years the only ACO events with practices covered were LM and Silverstone so it's a bonus

Some cars are insured and some aren't. The RSR that was ran by the company I work for was insured by the owner. I seem to remember the first £25k of damaged wasn't covered.

DSC report that the replacement is their ELMS car and they haven't yet decided whether to order a new chassis to replace the destroyed one.

Guess they'll see if they can repair it first.

"And then we had this WEC thing come along. And good heavens though, what they’ve brought here…”

I think the chances of the race happening for years to come are looking pretty solid

Will there be a WEC and IMSA Sebring weekend thread? Official sessions start today. I'm considering starting at least the WEC thread if no one else is willing or if the forum is supportive of the idea.

Been reading reports on Facebook that Neel Jani is thinking of leaving or scaling back his involvement with Rebellion in the WEC in favor of his factory Porsche ride in Formula E. Reports site the limited competitiveness of privateer teams against Toyota in the current formula in LMP1 as one of the reasons.

To his credit, Jani has been complementary of Toyota for designing and building an excellent car under the rules as given in a personal FB post of his. However, he's unhappy with the ACO over BOP and technical regs, which to be fair, TMG's advantage is IMO just too much to overcome without major BOP, which IMO would be a bit unfair to Toyota.

Well those rumours are true, he feels his time is up in WEC, so wants to try more Formula E instead. I think there arenít enough teams to challenge Toyota at the moment

The fact the ACO are now having to revert to BoP to keep it close says it all. Toyota have build up that advantage and are now forced to give it up, which is not good for a world series

Maybe when (if) the private teams get the bespoke tires the gap will close. I'm sure that's not the only thing that has to change for them to be closer but it's probably the biggest thing that can be done without going to the extreme side like sub 800kg cars and 800hp engines. Toyota is already at 904kg vs 833kg for the heaviest private teams (turbo engines). They also have about 60% of the fuel power per lap in MJ. You can tell the level between them by looking at the eot tables, even if they have a hybrid advantage.

Extra garages possible for 2023 LM (or before) when the new pit complex should be fully constructed

That P1/GTP/Car-Car will just be BoP class.

Also that it might consist of all of these jammed into one
1) ACO prototypes with hyper/roadcar styling
2) ACO prototype-GTs straight derived from hyper/roadcars
3) Grandfathered nonhybrid LMP1s (for the first year)
4) Gen 2 DPi

Well this is not the way it is supposed to go. I can see the attraction of the hybrid class, plus others. Would a one off LMP1 class work though?

I think the series is in trouble. Only the hybrid class and a few others can save it. LMP1 s have probably had their day here by the looks of it
