I think they really want to sell their battery system on the public and don't think a sticker on a small spec unit will suffice for that. I wonder what that will do to the class, but Toyota is also in development mode so don't they'd complain much.

It would likely help because well French and ACO goals but would they stay longer than Toyota, Kolles or SCG?

Not a rumour - have been talking and writing about it for months - the latest DSC piece explains why!

Rumor I saw from Autohebdo iirc said that Alpine is coming to hypercar after next year's lmp1 and an announcement is slated for LM weekend. Secondary to the Peugeot announcement.

Pascal Vasselon has some opinions on grandfathered LMP1.

To be quite fair, we know that FIA/ACO have done that in the past with the Group C cars and the LMP900s, so it is not unrealistic it will happen again (and that the grandfathered car wins)

“If you put LMP1 at the same level as LMH, it would kill all incentive for new teams to commit to the LMH category. Because obviously it will be a lot cheaper to go with a LMP1 instead of developing a LMH"

I'm sorry but how is this any different to when "LMDh" is introduced

With the grandfathered cars only being eligible for one year I don't know why this is such a big deal. Of course the grandfather cars will not be race at the same spec that they are currently running, and not sure why Vasselon is making a big deal about this, other than to make sure the ACO knows Toyota needs to win.

Because Toyota didn't go through all the **** to somehow get that car out for next season and make the class even happen just to get dunked by a 7 year old ORECA with a sticker on it and watch Renault waltz off with all the glory.

The real problem here is that in previous transitions older spec cars were clearly disadvantaged from a regulations standpoint so if they happened to still win there was no room to complain, while in the bold new future of BoP the only way to compare anything is the end result. In the end it's no different than out of production and non-Evo GT3 cars always getting the short end of the BoP stick.

I think Toyota are right to voice their concerns, they have done all the hard work to get ready for next season and stay in the category. The regulations for next season can't be changed now, let's just hope it is does the job. I look forward to seeing how well the Hypercars go. I think it will be nicely unique

I think next season will be exciting and agree with what Toyota said.
That said I don't see any issue with grandfathered cars.
I think BOP will easily deal with the situation.
The bigger issue that I see is all racing has to reduce costs.
Covid has destroyed a lot of things and racing has to adjust radically.

That rendering looks a little bit like a porsche on the front end. I still don't know why the minimum weight is so high.
