I'm happy to hear that they won't be leaving. The more prototypes the better, especially top teams.


American Le Mans Series champion team Highcroft is to continue with Acura in next season's combined prototype class.

Duncan Dayton's squad, which won the 2009 LMP1 crown with David Brabham and Scott Sharp, will use a new development of the original LMP2 Acura ARX-01 rather than this year's LMP1 ARX-02a. The ALMS is amalgamating LMP1 and LMP2 for 2010 to encourage closer competition, and will balance the cars' performance accordingly.


I see this as an opportunity for Porsche to do the same with the RS Spyder. I can't imagine that they would have to spend too much money in development. I guess we will just have to wait and see what Audi is going to do.
