    Re: 24h Le Means 2017

    tso:

    I am afraid it is too late to save the LMP1 class. Truth is that I would love to have seen it develop, but the moment Audi pulled out, and was not replaced by Peugeot or someone else, the class seemed doomed.

    Two factory teams is in my view 2 too little, and the cost have run crazy as well, so who should jump on this one ? The fact that Toyota have tried for so long without winning, I would imagine makes the field of candidates burning billions of $$$ close to non existing.

    One thing which could have saved the class or at least extended it's life, would have been a Toyota victory in 2016 or 2017, but that is al history by now.

    Not a very postive situation, but while this is happening, I will enjoy a good LMP2 and GTE pro field wink

     

    Having two manufacturers competing does not necessarily spell doom. Look at the Audi vs Peugeot battles.

    P2 holds no interest for me.

    GT has little or no interest for me as its now completely BoP dependent. It's like watching WWW. I never liked it.

    P2 holds no interest for me.

    especially now with one engine/chassis...

    LeMans absolutely needs LMP1 with big manufacturers...

    Re: 24h Le Means 2017

    A new era of group C, or hypercar based GT1's would be great as a replacement to LMP1, and more cost effective. Trouble is LMP2's might well be quicker than such cars.

    But if we want to see Porsche there , it needs to push the technological boundaries.

    So how will Le Mans handle fully electric cars?

    Re: 24h Le Means 2017

    Porsche, Toyota,  and Le Mans officials all have an interest in preserving high profile manufacturer races. My guess is they will work out some type of arrangement.
