LMP1 looking a little sad. Great to see Kubica in there though.

LMP2: Jackie Chan! I also want to see Manor have some success. So I'll be following the Chinese flags with interest.

GTE: This'll be my first year paying proper attention. I must admit I have a soft spot for the Ford GTs, despite everything. Let's have some nice honest battles.

Go #61 :)

I know you only need two cars to make a race, but it would be nice to see some more LMP1 manufacturers (hint hint Ferrari...).

So I guess we will no longer see a raft of Nissan/Nismo stickers on the LMP2 machines with all the engines being the new Gibson units. Unless there is some Nissan input or backing, but this article doesn't read that way. FIA article on Gibson engines

LMP1 is just too sparse. Unfortunately with the ruleset currently in place I don't see too many manufacturers coming in the near future. Time for a re-think?
And yes, go the 61!

I love the WEC but this season is going to be far less interesting for me without Webber and Audi. LMP1 looks very sad which is a shame because LMP1 cars are incredible pieces of machinery but seemingly too expensive to draw more teams. GTE should keep it interesting though.

Unless I imagined it, I believe the ByKolles car gets the Nissan GTR LMP1 engine which was mega. Hopefully this will give them a big performance boost as I'd love to see Kubica go well.

In other news Young Driver AMR will step back this season so their Aston will be a pure factory run car. The Dane Train lives on in spirit!

Looks to me that the "Porsche Intelligent Performance" liveries have been ditched making way for a new design. Neel Jani snapped in a new race suit...




His race suit taking some obvious features from the new RSR



Have to say, I'm pretty happy for the change.

There's a bit of talk around the traps that Toyota are running 3 cars at Le Mans on the same budget they had last year. Also, that it could be a last hoorah for the manufacturer before they pull the plug.

Not a bad group of drivers, not to mention these are only the ones named in 2 categories!

Good on him!

When it comes to GTE or GT Am Im more of a Ferrari fan then not but have a big soft spot for that gorgeous Gulf Porsche. Great to have a Aussie in WEC after Webber stepped out. Be interesting to see how he goes in the Porsche compared to the new Ferraris, they will be quick.
