Looks like AER just done their reputation for creating smoke-displays another tick in the box...... Kaboom......am sure the NISMO Cosworth-Nissan will find its way into another LMP1 soon.

There's an evolution of the AER P60B on the way for 2019, the P60C.

The last question in this thing made me wonder about the future WEC regulations:

Quote:
Is AER interested in the new WEC regulations?

"In any case, AER is looking to the future and we are working on our engine choice for the WEC 2020 regulation. "
Does this mean they might work with a manufacturer to produce a race engine and ERS system? I was under the impression that you had to use an OEM package for the engine but were able to develop your own chassis?

That is a wrong impression. You can use whatever engine you wish, but if it's a production engine at least 25 (cars with that engine) must have been made by the time the car gets on track. Same for the ERS. But you can use a bespoke racing engine. In that case there are no production requirements, but it looks like you also don't get a few goodies you might get by using a production engine. It's somewhat confusingly put in the rules and certain publications in their haste to say something about the regulations got it completely wrong which doesn't help.

I noticed that too. The rush to be 'first!' had a few sites backtracking their initial article. I was surprised that they put that in there because it made no sense to me and sure enough it was false info, fake news if you will

I also don't think manufacturers are forced to use a production engine either. That would make little sense as well. I kinda like the fact that you can use a production engine but must produce a few examples of said engine in a car. I can see someone like Toyota and Aston Martin using upcoming road hypercars for the select few.

Those Russians sure do great PR videos, another one to sign off their first season in LMP1.
Podium at LeMans 24hr!!! fair to say they have developed well. I think this was an amazing result for them considering how many drivers have said the car is difficult to drive.
Also, for AER, well what can we say, they did it, well done to them. Fair to say, they appear to be improving considerably under their new director and group of engineers. They now need to keep doing it.

The considerable improvements of AER on the LMP1 program do make the "Mazdas" look even worse on the P2-DPi chassis side

Well given its only a 2litre engine in an I4 configuration, up against many different much larger capacity engines, my bets are on a pretty bad chassis.

Hope the cars get picked up by someone else to be raced. Shame to see a strong privateer LMP1 effort disappear. But one can understand their unhappiness with the balance between the privateers and Toyota.

They could've saved it a long time ago by allowing P1 back into ELMS.

It would be good if someone picked up the cars. It’s a shame to see them go, but they gave it a good effort. Managed to get Button driving one was a good move, but it wasn’t enough
