Yeah there was a 5.2 sec jump from top of Test Day to top of Hyperpole last year.

Alpine are 40 hp down on last year's LM spec and they've got less energy (sorry - can't find exact amount in MJ) they can use across a stint. So stands to reason they are a bit slower with no development. Albeit I'm sure they are soft pedalling a bit.

Interesting notes on the new Hypercar being more friendly to drive than the current model.

The hydrogen combustion engine is something I hope goes forward with Toyota pushing it.

veeten should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
... and now, that the last LMP1 has been consigned to the dust bin, the teams and manufacturers can, and have, moved on to LMH/LMDh.
If you think about it, Oreca, Multimatic, and Leiger are now in the same situation as Dallara, Dome, Courage and other chassis manufacturers were in the late 90's/ early 2000's. Being in the main class with major auto manufacturers supplying the engines. The only difference is the inclusion of Hybrid power as a standard unit, rather than an additional price point.

Good choice. The M8 GTE engine was too big to use, and the previous DTM engine was not easily able to be adapted for use in LMDh. So, they chose an earlier version of the DTM engine and went for forced induction to make more power. And, it fits the engine bay in the chassis. Not bad.
Looking forward to the testing runs, should provide some good results.

Lower hybrid activation speed for Peugeot because of their tyre sizes?

I couldn't think of a reason but that makes sense. Was the ACO ever invited to a Peugeot test to collect data on this car?

I like the way Hypercar power has crept up from the original 670hp to 715hp for the Glickenhaus. That's a decent gap to the 540hp of LMP2.

I like that they are tying together new and old and it's not another big battery for no emissions. The sounds of an ice are an important part of racing imo. Which is another reason I hope they push forward with it.
