Surely they're not gonna reject them, you don't want your top class looking depleted (especially for the reasons of bureaucracy)

I don't think they'll reject them, but I do question if they'll actually turn up. And if they do turn up, will they race. And if they race, will it be good enough to beat the LMP2 class.

If they don't turn up, it'll free up slots in the reserve list, which hasn't seen heavy much movent in recent years. Not since that one insane year when all reserves were pretty much used by late April and finally Krohn came to rescue after the Risi-badged car had first been rejected by the ACO

AER might be crap in reliability but I think it'll be good enough for beating the P2s somewhat comfortably in quali

I'm also not sold on the AER reliability. Whilst the AER blocks do work in some series, they have never had good reliability in Endurance racing, no matter what the team. It burnt down a lot in the ByKolles before, and SMP lost a car at Le Mans with an engine failure - and they're running the 2.4L.

I hope they turn up and race. I also hope ByKolles is going with another engine choice than the AER which they have had BAD experience with.

If they are looking for reliability (Ginetta and Kolles now) couldn't do much better than the gibson in the Rebellions. But I forget, was that an exclusive deal?

Good point, maybe I was thinking of the oreca chassis being exclusive to Rebellion.

Don't try kicking against the wind. Even if they beat the bureaucracy, they still have a long way to go to make into the race.

There are few surprises though the absence of both TRSM Ginetta LMP1 cars ranks as something of a shock for some, the Ginetta factory having recently regained control of the entries from their former customers and was known to have posted a pair of entries for the now AER powered cars.


in dailysportscar.com

If anything can go wrong, it will.

I think you need look no further than the 'history' between Bill Gibson and Lawrence Tomlinson to conclude that a Ginetta Gibson is very unlikely to happen.

They've had fallings out with ORECA and Mecachrome now too.
