Whatever happened to that supposed announcement of interest/intent within a week of Sebring? Guess that never really was on?

Aston wants to run a Valkyrie.
BMW wants to use hydrogen.
Toyota wants to run a prototype.
Ferrari wants to turn up to the meetings to appear interested but never commit to anything.
Ford wants to switch to DPi unless they might be interested in running a version of the GT as a hypercar. Maybe.
McLaren wants to run a Senna, or maybe a prototype that looks kinda like a 720S.
Glickenhaus wants to run a prototype that looks like a hypercar that they can sell as a road car.

Rebellio/SMP/ByKolles/Dragonspeed (maybe even Ginetta) don't want to throw away the very recent investment in their prototypes.

Besides that it's plain sailing...

Someone should make a massive Venn diagram with all those parties and see what's in the middle.

My guess is four wheels and a roof.

I wouldn't be supremely confident about the roof, I've heard rumours that Ferrari want to go open-top, so they can save money by using their F1 tub (along with almost everything else from the car).

Four wheels should be agreed by all interested parties - as long as they all want the wheels to be the same size.

McLaren Pushing for Production-Based Only Hypercar Regs

https://sportscar365.com/lemans/wec/...hypercar-regs/

This is Zak Brown saying it's all too complicated because of different concepts (LMP/Hypercar/GTE Plus/whatever) all mixed up. It's all mixed up because of the manufacturers.

“We prefer a production-based hypercar,” Brown told Sportscar365. “We want to see Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche in road-going hypercars.

“I think that’s what the fans want and what we want to race against."

Porsche aren't interested, Ferrari probably not either. I'm a fan and I want to watch prototypes defying reality, not a footballer's plaything tooling around slower than an LMP2.
If you want to race against Aston, Ferrari and Porsche, may I direct you towards GTE?

My word, besides the stuff that's his own ill-informed opinion I don't think a single thing Brown said there is true.

Zak Brown talks for his own manufacturer. I am not sure that FIA and ACO would refuse brands which have no hypercar to sell : Toyota, Peugeot, GM, Nissan, Audi, BMW...

Not sure how long the FIA/ACO can keep burying their heads in the sand on this one? Seems perfectly obvious these new rules are dead in the water and just need to be buried.

Realistically, I see two options:
1. DPI+. Something that isn't called DPI, but is essentially based on very similar platform and principles
2. Kick the can down the road. Stick with what we have now maybe with some form of COTS hybrid being made available to all?

I honestly don't see any other options.

What do others think?
