kartman24 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Anyone have an anticipated date in July that the Ferrari will break cover for testing? For me this is the most eagerly awaited of the Hypercars.

Look, I probably should just keep on ignoring you but since I've noticed that my sarcastic reply to your umpteenth provocations was deleted, the only thing I can conclude is that this kind of abusive and hostile behaviour is more tolerated. I can't and actually don't want to understand what's your point of be so hostile, but if you're enjoying doing that, I'm actually too old for this. But at the same time I can't tolerate someone may have this kind of tone toward me.
There are more polite ways to express your disagreement without involving personal attacks or provocations, so I'm officially asking you to have a polite and respectful tone towards me (and in general towards everyone). Don't get me wrong, it's ok to attack my argumentations if you think I'm wrong, debate is the core of a discussion afterall, but just keep in mind you're among civilzed people not animals.
That's my request and hope you and mods may read this post of mine, to aknowledge my good will to end the matter in friendly terms.
Peace and Respect.

Regardless of who's right and wrong here, you're way too much in attack mode. Also tons of caps lock doesn't help either.

To change the subject, could this thread be renamed to include general 2023 entry list news and speculation? No sense doubling up with another thread.

Ref the BMW/ Honda to Le Mans points above

To be clear - neither will race at Le Mans unless and until there is a parallel full season WEC presence by the brands

BMW seem the more serious about it. Honda could do it, but it might be tough for them to find a place.

I don't 100% expect BMW to come in next year, but almost certainly the year after. It'll be worth doing a whole season of WEC just to compete at Le Mans.

We have our first taker! Hugo Delacour (no, me neither) aims to be in the WEC/Le Mans next year in a GTE Am Ferrari.

Johnson would have to go through the entire rookie orientation process before being allowed to compete. That would make for a very busy season if he were to do another full season of Indycar and potentially a limited IMSA campaign.

Trying to do LM in only your 3rd season ever in motorsports is asking for trouble imo. I guess we'll see a boatload of wannabees trying to 'step up' to the big show in 2024 and beyond...

We've always seen amateurs at Le Mans and there have been drivers with less experience racing there than Delacour. It will be a struggle if he does race, but we'll see

Where can one find the rookie procedure the ACO applies for LM?

I believe this is the first part of it:
https://www.24h-lemans.com/en/news/2...imulator-51618

I'd imagine it's another nice little earner for the ACO this one. Maybe in the spirit of partnership they could set up one of these sims in Daytona.

Thanks Simmi. Interesting to read about the 6 different exercises. And yes, it would be fun if mortals like us could do that sim program!



Anyway, I did some digging myself and found this:


https://www.24h-lemans.com/en/lemans/regulations


In the Supps (Supplementary Regulations -> https://assets.lemans.org/explorer/p...egulations.pdf) on page 59 + 60 you can find more about which drivers need to go through 'rookie orientation' and the exceptions. Basically any driver that hasn't participated in the 5 most recent editions of the race, is subject to it. There's a list included of all drivers that participated in the last 5 editions (2016-2021 as these regs apply to the 2022 race).
