    “This is why we are intensively preparing to enter the new sports prototype category LMDh with its highlight races, the Daytona 24 Hours and Le Mans 24 Hours."

    ...

    “Personally I believe that it’s the right format and formula for the next period, going forward,” said McNish.

    “It creates a platform where you can have the same car racing worldwide. The U.S as we know, as a huge market, it’s a big market for it. It’s a big market for pretty much all the car manufacturers.

    “But Le Mans is still also a key race in the world in motorsport, never mind just in sports car racing.

    “I believe the platform is the right platform to go forward and very pleased with IMSA and ACO call on the first point in the regulations. I stated I was very pleased that the two parties had actually joined together with a global multi-sport view of sports cars.”

    So we have Toyota and Glickenhaus hypercars and grandfathered Alpine LMP1 for 2021, Peugeot Hypercar/LMDh? and Alpine LMDh in 2022, Audi LMDh in 2022/2023.

    Now imagine if Aston Martin hadn't imploded.

    I wonder if this is why Mazda and Joest parted ways.

    The resurrection of the WEC is complete, and this only strengthens IMSA as well. Porsche and Audi for both series in 2023, Peugeot, Toyota, and Alpine for the WEC, probably still Cadillac, Honda/Acura and Mazda? for IMSA.

    Isn't the whole Mazdaspeed program discontinued? I understood that they were going to kill all motorsports programs and the Mazdaspeed trims.

    They are running a single car in 2020, so it's not killed, just not sure what direction they will go in 2021. Also, the Mazda isn't run by Mazdaspeed, its run by Multimatic.

    Here's the old 2019-2020 Toyota Ts050 Hybrid LMP1:



    Here's the new 2021 Toyota Gazoo Racing GR010 Hybrid Hypercar:



    Call me crazy, all I see is a different roof and a vanity panel at the front.
