Oreca ending support of Toyota at the end of this WEC season after LM next year. Rumored to be going with Rebellion to Peugeot.

I guess they'll have to find somewhere else besides Paul Ricard to test at. Not sure what else Oreca really provides that Toyota can't cover. Especially after 7 years in the WEC. I can see a new(ish) team like Peugeot wanting their services with the recent experience though.

Oreca did provide 6-7 mechanics and technicians and David Flourey helped with some design aspects of the TS050's aero package it seems. It also seems that TMG did plan on Oreca moving on to another project as per the SC365 article they (TMG and Oreca) were planning on such a move for at least a couple of years.

As for testing, TMG are based in Cologne, which if I remember correctly isn't too far away from Nurburgring or Spa, and TMG both in the GT-One and current LMP era have frequently tested at Spa.

GasperG has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
The real question is what will Oreca provide Peugeot, they do know some Toyota tricks.

Lots of tidbits in this:

Also an earlier story with some refreshingly honest answers about the choice between LMH and LMDh:

https://www.motorsport.com/wec/news/...ercar/4690632/ article talks about a deadline Peugeot has set for a decision on hypercar or lmdh. Also, he talks about the minimum weight difference between the two classes but nothing specific. But they do believe the regs between the two should be the same in terms of weight, power etc.
