Well , the other way of looking at it is , Aston are hardly going to supply Speedy with the latest spec engine , while their strutting their stuff . So, If you want to beat them , you may have to be a little differant .

By all accounts the Aston Martin LMP1 engine is a very expensive proposition - combine that with the likelihood that you'll always be a step or two behind the factory in terms of development, and the possible benefits of the wider community based development you get from a Judd package it all starts to fit together.

Except it was the LMP2 car which won the Green X Challenge, which means 3 invites for that car. I assume the ACO may just give it to 2nd place in Green X or possibly third in LMP2 (Racing Box)?

If Speedy Sebah goes for all LMP1, will they buy a new Lola or convert the LMP2 car?

Not to mention the Vantage's problems.

With Hexis wanting to run a DBR9 in GT1 next year, and Drayson moving to P1, I'd imagine the Aston GT2 program is pretty much dead. After the poor performance (and minimal improvement) it's shows over the past 2 years, I can't imagine anyone else picking them up. There is the JWA car, but who knows what's happened with that.

If I've understood correctly, the entry they receive as winners of the Green X Challenge is a free entry(?). Perhaps someone could confirm..........

Either way, a 2 car LMP2 effort for 2010 would make financial sense in terms of funding etc. But, perhaps the team's current backers would prefer to be racing in the top class.

I think it is free also, which would make it the best entry to have, IMO!

I also agree on the thought on P-2, especially ahead/thinking of the 2011 ruleset.

That's correct. As Xavier said after the race, maybe they can sell one of the entries to pay for the crash damage they sustained after the race.

I'll be looking out for a couple of things next season;

1/ Will Audi and Peugeot run, or supply, cars for LMS teams, seeing as they'll only have one further year to run current spec cars.

2/ How many teams will adopt new spec regs, whether that be LMP1 or LMP2, if any.

3/ Check out if Lola make any major changes to their chassis, earlier in the season they talked about the chassis needing an overhaul, particularly around the nose. With so many customers they need to keep one step ahead of their competitors.
