Itís ironic that my experience of motor racing fans at Daytona, Sebring and Laguna Seca has been universally friendly, warm, welcoming and enthusiastic, yet the threads discussing US racing on this forum are among the most aggressive, argumentative and negative.

Iíve also found American events (old PWC included) to be far more fan inclusive than European events. Far more open and welcoming for sure

Some DPI/LMDH/LMP Hypercar regs got released today. Main ones being approx 650-700bhp engine power (no word on hybrids) and a minimum weight of 1030kgs across all variations of the class.

All articles I've seen mention less power (650-670) and spec hybrid. It's linked to the rear axle, no 4wd systems.

Porsche already responded. From DDC "Porsche has already posted a positive comment, Fritz Enzinger stating: ďACO and IMSA have fulfilled our expectations. Itíll be possible to compete for overall victories in most important endurance series with one vehicle. Weíre now getting underway with concept study commissioned by our board of directorsĒ"

Still don't like the quasi spec chassis (LMP2 based) and I'd rather see teams be able to build their own cars from scratch and have the option of building a customer car to their specs.

Sadly, the car makers (outside of Toyota and Glickenhaus) are pushing for this, and they're getting their way. At least this will hopefully put more cars on the grid.

There's also questions on if Toyota's and Glickenhaus' cars will be eligible for IMSA.

I read Fritz Enzinger's quote as Hypercars are eligible for IMSA events. Though it hasn't explicitly been stated that Glickenhaus/Boutique/teams-one-might-not-classify-as-a-Mainstream-Manufacturer would be eligible.


The whole thing does feel a step in a direction of appealing to more entrants as opposed to fewer from my work from home chair.

I do hope that it's better than what LMP1 became and that it takes off more than DPI has.

Nowhere has IMSA stated that Hypercar can race in IMSA, not so far as I have read.

First, no one else has agreed build any cars at all any more so why cater to 2 and end up with 4 cars in your field. Others may produce more cars and not cost you anything, and you aren't eliminating those 2 options.

Second, read the articles. It says hypercar will be open to run in IMSA with a major caveat. They specifically say twice major manufacturer, means possibly only Toyota could run. It's not like Ina IMSA would exclude an American team because they aren't major. Oh wait, they didn't let Panoz run in Conti Challenge either so.
