That is a brilliant idea, make the livery something related to the movie, maybe paint a panther in the back window or something. Maybe get Wonder Bread sponsorship? Or just list Ricky Bobby as one of the drivers!

Still a bit of work to do clearly but I'd say we can move the Glicks into the semi-confirmed column now for Le Mans next year. So that's maybe 13 cars without factoring in a possible second JOTA Porsche.

Jim might have to file for 2 full season WEC entries to get both his cars in for LM, a repeat of this year looks unlikely. 2 full season entries for next year sound like a rather big question mark at this time.

And I'm guessing full season will mean full season next time around.

And not full season minus Fuji and minus Bahrain

This from Richard Mille is pretty ambiguous so it will be interesting to see what happens. Whether it's the same case for an ARC Bratislava for example if they need to miss rounds, who knows.

Maybe, just maybe the WEC and the ACO are starting to see the value of more boutique manufacturers and privateers backed by powerful sponsors (Jota-Hertz for instance). And if so, hopefully they can have a meaningful conversation with IMSA about Glickenhaus being an added value to their series as well.

Yup, so IMSA can have Jim moaning about them from within rather than from the outside

At no point have BMW said anything other than that they won't be there in 2023 - this is VERY good news, an additional factory effort from 2024

all true, however from a PR point of view next year will be a highlight, would be great to have BMW and Honda as well, 2024 will be a 'normal' LM year...

Weird pessimism there won't be anything normal about '24 - it's going to be insane.

Imagine having that '23 grid, then adding Lambo, BMW, Alpine, maybe some Acuras, and a cavalry of extra privateers.
