PhilipR should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It will be interesting to see how the AOP will work.

I think part of the advantage that the Oreca currently has is that it looks to be most consistently performant. We had moments when Ligiers and Dallaras could challenge the Orecas but it never seemed to be able to do it on a consistent basis. How would AOP balance this if same situation arises again?

This is the key with the current rule set. The skill is developing a car with a wide operating window. BoP/AoP/EoT/DoG gets you the performance, but make sure you have it under all situations.

It’s different to AoP, but Racecar engineering gave a good review of the homologation and performance testing for Hypercar and it was clear you don’t want peaky performance to get you there.

Quite a challenge really.

And they are currently using the same system in LMP3, course we have what 2 options in reality there so maybe not that tough. But I watch LMP3 when they are on track in front of me but not so much the rest of the year

On MWM they talked how Multimatic said it would be impossible to turn their chassis to LMP2 spec as it was designed for a hybrid unit.

Granted we still have 2 more years for LMP2 to be finalised and maybe they will adopt hybrid but that would be going against the cost cap nature of the class

Will we end up with brand new LMP2 chassis by all manufacturers or will we end up with Multimatic not providing LMP2 chassis and just focusing on LMDh? - It did make me wonder if with the current popularity of LMDh some of the chassis manufacturers will just focus on LMDh and not care about LMP2

We also have the weird situation where LMDh was supposed to be based on LMP2 but it seems now LMP2 will be based of LMDh

If that's the case then the Porsche should be classified as an LMH and another constructor should be able to offer an LMP2 chassis. Calling Lola!

Trying to remember stuff and piece it all together. I seem to recall that it was suggested that the new LMP2, while not initially hybrid, could become a hybrid class in the future. Although obvious with the relationship to LMDh, how would this be defined now?

Quote:
It is understood that the integration of hybrid technology in LMP2 is little more than a potential option for the future, considering the use of LMDh — which is a hybrid formula — as the base.
Is it just it’s possible so it might happen?
