One of those things to take with a healthy bit of skepticism but I definitely like the idea/concepts. The P72 is an incredible-looking car. It’s good to see there’s one rule set capable of attracting boutiques as well.Not sure what to make of this, but I like it.
I said that about the Ferrari, and there it is.Like with Aston and Audi, I'll believe it when I see it.
Audi shut the program down in March but didn’t confirm it until they snuck it into the bottom of their 2026 F1 press release in September.I said that about the Ferrari, and there it is.
I think Aston is officially out.
I read there was one finished Audi chassis, but that probably got turned into a Porsche. We might see Audi eventually, but they are probably going to put a year or two on the Portsche to learn the new game. I have not seen an official announcement either way, but more cars would be good.
McLaren just seem to take their time doing an evaluation and commercial packaging before signing off on a deal. It took them about three years to go from Alonso doing the 500 to a full IndyCar program and a few years to finally commit to Formula E for next season.Skepticism is great when it comes to things like Bykolles, or Ginetta, but Mclaren has been talking about LMDh for awhile. I wish they would just get with it because these things take so long to put together. Like, the rules have been out for two or three years and we're still waiting for for a lot of supposed entries. Ferrari is going to show up a full two years after Toyota raced their hypercar, and I hope we don['t have to wait that long for a McLaren.
I don't mean to sound greedy because what we have coming this year is going to be ultra mega. I'm just excited we may finally be on our way to another Group C/GTP type of era
Which is why I wish they would get with it. They should really be here already. The rules have been in place for two or three years.McLaren just seem to take their time doing an evaluation and commercial packaging before signing off on a deal. It took them about three years to go from Alonso doing the 500 to a full IndyCar program and a few years to finally commit to Formula E for next season.
Here's WEC's big mistake. They are completely distancing themselves from the FIA world manufacturers championship, and this includes the 917/512 era as well as all of Group C. Why distance yourselves from the Ford vrs Ferrari era? That's a ton of rich history they seem to want no part of, but they want us to believe sportscar racing started in 2012?Qatar’s Lusail International Circuit will become the 14th different venue in a 13th different country to host an FIA World Endurance Championship race as it hosts the Prologue and opening 6 hour race race for the 2024 World Championship.
Ngl, I might skip this race. Especially if Sebring is taken off the calendar.Unfortunately it’s all about where the money is and how the logistics shape up. If Silverstone comes back they’ll start rotating European races…lame and gross. It’s Roger Penske’s and the Middle East’s world and we’re just living in it.
What they need to do is dump the full half hour of pre-race and full half hour post race coverage. No one gives a damm.With the bag Qatar and presumably IMS will drop I hope we can at least get an app worth a damn, TV coverage that isn’t the first and last hour on MotorTrend, more free practice sessions streamed, air freight to add a ninth round and open up flexibility in the schedule…
It sounds as if we may get this after all, courtesy of Qatar Airways, in which case this move becomes more palatable. The series’s dependency on sea freight has been a limiting factor on how the schedule is built the past several years.With the bag Qatar and presumably IMS will drop I hope we can at least get an app worth a damn, TV coverage that isn’t the first and last hour on MotorTrend, more free practice sessions streamed, air freight to add a ninth round and open up flexibility in the schedule…
e sights of the WEC with the number ten now regularly acknowledged as a future possibility, despite not having formed part of the regular vocabulary until very recently!
Notable by their presence were senior figures of the Government-controlled Qatar Airways, the airline a major player in air freight, the world’s third largest intercontinental cargo carrier.
Glad they’re making a lot of progress but that’s still a short timeline to have all of the documentation ready by the entry deadline and the car ready to race by the end of April. Hope they pull through though.This could be another good car............... https://www.dailysportscar.com/2022...r-in-2023-partner-team-decision-imminent.html
