Not sure if Peugeot plan on doing IMSA, but with an lmdh, it will be eligible to do the big races (NAEC I assume). I think that's one reason they are looking at the class and not just saying "we're doing LMH". Toyota otoh already signed up and started a hypercar. But with the articles confirming their continuation, there is the info at the end of the racer.com article-
Quote:
...Right now it is an unknown, with the ACO and IMSA scheduled to present the technical regulations for the global LMDH formula to the public for the first time at Sebring next month. Before then, there are IMSA steering committee meetings scheduled to take place next week in Daytona, and another the week before Sebring.

Toyota may well be a part of those discussions for the first time. Vasselon did not rule it out when RACER asked whether or not Toyota would be in attendance. “It is not defined yet,” he said.

It's a little different. I turned out in 1992 when there were only 28 starters and everyone said it would be a non-event, but the battle between Peugeot and Toyota was actually very good. So unless they turn it into a touring car event (as was threatened a few years back), I'll still be there.

Yep. I always go into the circuit on Tuesday when there is virtually no-one there other than the teams in the pits. If, like Eric, I lived in Le Mans, I'd probably go in for a lungful of Le Mans air quite regularly....

Last year there were some stories about this.

I would not have guessed you're a fan of them consindering how much you complain about spec cars and BoP.

I'm not (of the modern version of it) but at least it's more transparent and somewhat less politically manipulative

The victories will go on record as being victories - so in 10 years time the legacy will show the number of Le Mans wins they have and not the circumstances - few will remember the lack of competition.

Who but us few remember the lack of competition for Audi in the early '00's - and Porsche has chalked up a number of their record of victories when there was little completion or alternative.

Minor point, but starting from today TMG will officially change their operating name from Toyota Motorsport GmbH to Toyota Gazoo Racing Europe GmbH. Seems to be part of Toyota Motorsport standardizing on the use of the Gazoo Racing branding for most of their platforms outside of Toyota Racing Development USA.

Is it just me or is Gazoo Racing the worst name ever? Sounds more like a 24 Hours of Lemons team.

I don't know why it's become so popular, considering just a few years ago it was only known though the N24 stuff. And the Gazoo name had nothing to do originally with Toyota's motorsports programs. I believe it started out as an interdepartmental mail system at TMC in Japan.

However, because it's gained so much traction, I can see Gazoo Racing branding being used for most Toyota Motorsport programs aside from TRD USA, and that's only because the Gazoo name is only familiar in North America for WRC and WEC fans. However, I think that the Supra GR is sold in North America (edit: it's a limited edition with a planned yearly production run of 1000 per model year starting with the 2021 MY in North America and spread across sub editions), so that may be the start of the push for that brand in NA.
