Pure speculation from my part -

I don't imagine Rebellion will be running a Ginetta. I think it'll be an Oreca, but the engine prediction is a bit harder. Mecachrome, Nissan, Gibson and AER are all possible.

I also don't see the Nissan engine being the manufacturer involvement in the Ginetta deal, otherwise we could say that the ByKolles has manufacturer involvement. I think the Ginetta sold cars may be for Alpine. They've been allowed, IMO, to run unfairly in LMP2 as Alpine. That was meant to stop when they started producing cars, and then they were given yet another season this year because the road car was slightly delayed - and they could brand a car. Let's be honest, they wouldn't be allowed to do that if they weren't French.

I can't see how it can be justified to allow Alpine to continue sticker engineering LMP2 cars, so it's either nothing or LMP1. So Alpine Ginetta? They're owned by Renault, who are linked to Nissan. Sticking an Alpine badge on that engine is easy enough.

My personal prediction, based on nothing but the thoughts in my own head

Rebellion - Oreca (possibly with R-Two branding) - Nissan/Mecachrome/Gibson/AER
Alpine - Ginetta - Nissan (with Alpine branding. Signatech running ops).

Sounds like the most likely in my opinion too. But we will find out soon!

I think the Alpine/Ginetta/Nissan combination sounds very plausible, my only question mark being the choice of Ginetta as constructor, over Oreca, if (as I think most of us believe) Rebellion have indeed bagged Oreca to build their LMP1, and seemingly quite late in the day.

Anyway, that's a discussion for a different thread...

I'm sure Graham Goodwin knows the exact details of the deal!...... but is probably bound by a non disclosure agreement........but he can make references to other press releases, as he has done........and dropping hints about the Nissan and Mechachrome engine not being exclusive......he knows!!!!

Of course, that's not in question.

Drivers confirmed as reported in the AutoHebdo story. No word on chassis or engine. Two cars. I guess more details likely on MWM later tonight?

unlikely to see porsche V4 fit inside a private lmp1. It should be more expensive than the whole car. Happy to be wrong anyway.

Great news! If it's an Oreca I think the engine will be a Gibson like one of the BR Dallara's. It's probably the best choice for the time constraints and the familiarity. The only thing I'm wondering is if they use the Oreca chassis, who is the mystery team with the two Ginettas?
